This Nixie tube clock has some four-letter words for you

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

We love retro-style nixie tube clocks around here, but this one is unique. It has a special function that allows it to show words on its display. And yes, since its a four letter display, that’s going to mean a lot of dirty words.

This was designed by Pete Hand. The four letter word generator displays random words, changing the word every few seconds. It has 5,400 words in its dictionary you bad words should be kept to a minimum. Sadly.

Nixie table clock needs to be bigger

Nixie table clock needs to be biggerNixie clocks may be the best way to keep time that man has invented. So when you combine the Nixie clock with a table, the results are surely awesome right? Yes and no. The tubes look great on the antique table, the problem is that it is a very small table that will fit on a desk. What we need is to up the tube size and up the table size. Maybe make it mantle size to put on your fireplace mantle. Somebody needs to get on this right away.The nixie clock needs to go giant, and now! How about a giant nixie clock on a building? On top of a stadium. Yes, let’s go bigger people.

Test Tube digital clock will not produce babies

Test Tube digital clock will not produce babies
I love all kinds of stuff with vacuum tubes. They just look cool and remind me of a different era. I love me some iPod docks with tubes, amps, and clocks. Even this “test tube” clock looks pretty neat, even if they’re not real vacuum tubes or test tubes that have chemicals in them or a tiny lifeform.

It’s basically just a bunch of numbers with glass domes over each. It doesn’t quite match the style and warmth of a Nixie clock, but hey to each his own. It does have a cool retro look. It’s $75.

I’m not going to make any wood jokes. No jokes about having your tubes tied either. I promise. We have a soft spot for these wood Nixie clocks. They just blend the modern with the old so nicely, you can’t help but fall in love with them. They just have style and they fit in anywhere you can think to put one.

You have to buy it as a kit and put it together yourself, but hey, that just gives you something to brag and be proud about when it’s finished. If you aren’t that handy and don’t think you can handle putting together it’s 115 parts, I guess you’ll just have to admire it from afar.
