Blub, A Clock That Displays Time Using Nixie Tubes

Blub is a clock that displays time with Nixie tubes—cold cathode tubes that were used to display numbers in early electronics. Thanks to modern electronic internals the clock can be programmed to display temperature and date, and it can serve as an alarm and power down automatically at night. Blub’s creator, Sydney-based designer Duncan Hellmers, is pre-selling the clock on Kickstarter.
