LED Clock Mocks Nixie
August 3rd, 2007
This clock looks quite a bit like those retro Nixie tube clocks, but instead of old vacuum tubes, it uses modern LED technology to achieve a similar result.
B&W’s Tubes Clock features six independent segmented red LEDs encased in little smoked domes. They’re then placed on top of a stainless steel and wood base to create a really dramatic effect.
One of the big problems with Nixie tubes is that they can burn out over time. By using LEDs, you’ll probably never have to worry about the display losing brightness or going bad.
The Tubes Clock is offered by British home decor shop Posh Pad for £98 (which works out to about $199 USD.)
