What is a Nixie Tube?
The Nixie Tube also called a “cold cathode display” tube, is an electrical component developed in the nineteen fifties. Its primary function is to display numerical information. Before the development of the LED (Light-emitting diode) and the LCD (Liquid crystal display), the Nixie Tube was used to display numeric information on kinds of machines, such as vending machines, duke boxes, teas-made and the first-ever digital clocks. You will find more information on The Niexie Display Tube from this Wikipedia article.
Because of it’s unique and vintage aesthetics, the Nixie Tube is the ideal component for using in projects where you want the outcome to fit into a retro or past period setting.
