Kyle Miller has designed work for Grammy-winning musicians & international design firms, and has had work appear on The Today Show, The Billboard Music Awards, and the National Museum Of Mathematics.
Aiming for the middle ground between minimalist DIY nixie clocks and the inaccessible boutique clocks that cost many thousands of dollars, “The Steampunk Nixie Clock Series” aims for both high quality and affordability.
While each clock is decidedly steampunk in style, special care is given to develop an elegant design that doesn’t feel too cluttered. The Steampunk Nixie Wall Clock MKIII embodies this in the form of gentle curves, clean lines, and the natural colours and patina of wood, brass, and steel.
Nixie tubes are cold-cathode vacuum tube, developed in 1955 and used in the Soviet Union until the mid-80’s. The tubes function by passing a small electrical current through a cathode, resulting in a orange glow discharge that illuminates each digit.
The tubes are controlled by a custom circuit board that is fully programmable through an easy to use sub-menu system. No programming knowledge or assembly are required. All tubes are sourced from Russia, Ukraine, and Poland.
