I’m loving the work TX/RX Labs, Houston, TX’s hackerspace, is doing these days. Their Flux Clockpacitor is made with DR2000 Numitron nixies, 7-segment drivers, and an Arduino Uno.

The intrepid adventurers of our Temporal Archaeology Team have returned from a parallel timeline in which they personally witnessed President Tesla’s WWI victory against Otto Mecha Bismarck in laser glove combat. Perusing the raucous markets of the floating slum-ships of Manchester-Above-London, they discovered this curious trinket: the Flux Clockpacitor.
