Vintage Inspired Design
Nixie tubes were first introduced back in the mid-1950s for numerals display, but soon fell out of favour due to the emergence of the new LED display technology that worked its way into the mainstream. As time has passed, the bright warm orange glow is becoming a legendary symbol for the retro-tech movement and they are a highly sought after commodity nowadays. However, they are quite fragile with a short life span and require sophisticated maintenance if anything goes wrong with them. Nextube is using the modern IPS screens to re-create the vintage nostalgic look without the problems associated with Nixie tubes.
The Nextube Retro Modern Nixie Clock on Kickstarter (from £95) isn’t a mere exercise in nostalgia. The digital IPS screens can bring endless possibilities and will really add a dash of old school cool to wherever you choose to display it. Select a place, set your time, and you’re ready to enjoy the beauty of this ultra-modern instrument of time. With this eye-catching accessory, you can get the most out of every second, and focus on your own life and goal.
It boasts a real-time social media subscriber counter for your Youtube channel, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Tiktok account and has a reliable weather forecast and accurate temperature/humidity display which allows you to check the weather at a glance in the morning to get you and your family well prepared for the day ahead. For anyone with a love of Nixie tube style clocks but don’t want the hassle of the upkeep, this is the Kickstarter campaign for you – head on over now to get yours for a bargain price.
