Nixie tubes were introduced in the mid-1950s for numerals display, but soon fell out of favor because of the new LED display tech. As time pass, the bright warm orange glow is becoming a legendary symbol for the retro-tech. However, they are quite fragile, short life, and require sophisticated maintenance. Nextube is using the modern IPS screens to re-create the vintage nostalgic look.

Our story with Nextube starts with our electronic engineer, James. He is so obsessed with all kinds of old tech gadgets, and the glow of nixie tubes holds a special place in his heart, it’s his dream to build one by himself, he shared the idea with the team, and we thought, why not create the world’s first hackable nixie clock to revive the beautiful warm glow, and at the same time, tells you key metrics for daily life. We are ready to go now, and here we invite you to join us to start this journey.

As engineers, we love the journey to design things. But the process of creating new products isn’t easy, especially when innovating new features, so we want to bring our Nextube ideas and designs in front of the Indiegogo community. We believe with the feedbacks from this awesome community we can get more inspiration and co-create with backers. We look forward to having you as our co-creator, and let’s make Nextube a better display for everyone.
