I make Nixie wristwatches and fix radio telescopes and go to Burning Man and deal with dirty water. Look for my bike boom box coming soon. There's always something up my sleeve.

    Nixie Watch Prototype_C

    These are IN-16 Nixie tubes. There is a high voltage power supply on the circuit board to make 200V. Did you not see that?

    I keep thinking about that too, as I found a few hundred of these tubes. The case design is very challenging, to make it appear reasonably thin, like the watch in the game Metro: Last Light.

    It's not exactly unique, as I have made over a thousand similar Nixie watches for over ten years. But it is the only one just like it.
