DIY Nixie Tube Thermometer Kit


Real nixie tubes are the “LEDs” of yesteryear. They proudly displayed their digits on scientific equipment, voltmeters, counters, and control panels. While they’re no longer in production, Thinkgeek has managed to scrounge up some limited edition DIY sets that let you build your own Nixie Tube Thermometer.

You’ll need a few skillz to put it together, but if you can wield a soldering iron and read a schematic, you’re in business. You could also use the parts to hack together something completely different.
