people have been crazy about building personal alarm clocks, temperature meters etc from nixies during the last few years - so much that the supply of the bigger nixie tubes seems really bad and they usually sell for a lot of moolah. i was thinking of building one myself at some point since it looked cool, but i came to my senses.

I've been looking at Nixie kits for a while. Here's one that's not too bad:

One of these days I'll pull the trigger. Maybe if Bridechamber makes a panel for it. :)
