New clock brings back Nixie tube neon technology

Blub is a clock that combines the retro technology of the Nixie tube with modern design and functionality. In this clock the Nixie tubes are filled mostly with neon gas, which is illuminated in the form of numerals when an electric charge is applied to the atmosphere. Designer Duncan Hellmers has created a clock that represents the passing of time through its nostalgic style and retro technology.

In addition to displaying time, the Blub shows the temperature, date, has an alarm and powers down automatically at night. You can get your own modern piece of retro tech on the Blub Kickstarter Page where Hellmers has well surpassed his funding goal.
