This unusual clock has six LEDs embedded in six tubes, sure to bring out the scientist in us all.

  1. Not LEDs. Much earlier.

    Those are Nixie tubes, which are really just a type of valve. Remember valves? No? Ask Grandad.

    Cool as though – gimme, gimme, gimme.

  2. Wow! Curiosity got the better of me, so I asked wiki instead of grandad. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nixie_tube

    And now I really really really want a nixie tube that spells out LITA. Valves rock!
