Nixie tube clocks were introduced for the first time in the mid-50s, and even though they’re no longer as popular as they once were, some nostalgic individuals still prefer to use them to tell the time. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, especially since certain companies have decided to create modern interpretations of these devices.
The Bulb Keo is a perfect example. It is a Nixie tube cock that can tell the time and provide other important bits of information regarding the date and temperature, not to mention that it can also serve as a backlight with a simple click on a remote. The tube sits on top of an aluminum base, which plugs in using a mini USB port. For $300, this is definitely a worthwhile investment if you’re looking to spruce up your workspace a bit.
