The Best Nixie Tube Watch Ever

The Best Nixie Tube Watch Ever

Steampunk Clockwork Cherry Pie is Gear-o-licious
I’m not a huge fan of most pies this side of lemon, but I’d totally eat this steampunk cherry pie. It looks awesome with a top crust that looks like a bunch of gears and clock parts.

If you’re the sort of geek that likes to cook and eat, you can make one of these for yourself.

One of the cameras on the CMRA strap faces the user and is a 2MP unit for selfies and video chats.
