If you are old enough, you might remember Medgadget was running a promotion to our readers five years ago, offering nixie tube clocks from our friend Fred M. Niell, III. Some of our editors still have those clocks ticking, and we love them. As a matter of fact, in those days we had just a handful of visitors to our fledgling site, but the clocks sold like hotcakes. Well, now Fred is back, and you have a chance to own a hand made Индикатор-6 (Indicator 6) Retro Nixie Clock V2, described by Fred as “functional art, combining electronics from the peak of the Cold War era with fine Virginia woodworking.” These clocks feature sexy nixie tubes made in the Soviet Union in 1971, all powered by high quality modern electronics. And to round it off, everything is assembled in a mahogany and black walnut housing that begs one to light a cigar and think of the good old days.
Fred has made only 100 Индикатор-6’s, all hand made and autographed with a serial number. So head on to Fred’s World of Science at www.niell.org, check out details about the clocks, and order them before they are gone.
