ETA Nixie tube clock

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Mark Smith over at surfncircuits has a nice write-up about building an ETA Nixie Tube Clock: This DIY project will combine the estimated time of arrival function with a Nixie tube display to create an estimated time of arrival (ETA) Nixie tube clock. It is all easily controlled by a...
