First Commission

I have been commissioned by the founders of tinychat.com to create a retro nixie tube display to display the site’s traffic. Working on the project has been fun. I’m using some off the shelf stuff for economy’s sake: a nixie tube clock found on ebay, an arduino, and an arduino ethernet shield. The device will go onto the internet and retrieve the site statistics periodically and display them in the warm glow of excited neon.
