    Steve Wozniak Talks About His Nixie Watch on "The Late Late Show"

    I'm sitting here watching The Waz as he gives about a minute of air time to his Nixie Watch after the guest host, Drew Carey asks him about it. The interview will probably be posted on YouTube later.

    I'm a big fan of the nixies and knew the story behind his watch, etc. I think someone even posted an encounter with him on a plane and talked to him about it.

    Anyways.... pretty cool! Even to have someone just talk about their watch on a talk show.
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Okay..., Charging Paddles... CLEAR!! BZZZZT... Another Thread Revived!

    Every time God closes one door... I open a bottle of bourbon.

    The desktop clocks are sweet. From what I recall pretty spendy though...

    This one is my favorite with the tallest nixies at 50mm in height with the 'normal' shaped 2's & 5's...:








    These are on the bay for like $800... and worth every penny! If you have never seen a nixie in person..., switching numbers - you are deprived! Especially these monsters!

    Not really ~ 100 - give or take 25 depending how cool you want the case and whether you want to make it yourself.
