If you’re familiar with the M.A.D Gallery, you’ll know the weird and unusual contraptions featured in the exhibit. One of them is the Nixie Machine, an unorthodox clock that looks more like a set of birthday candles resting on top of a giant metal spider. Based on technology from the 1950s, the Nixie Clock was originally crafted by Alberto Schileo, who found hundreds of old Z568M Nixie tubes in an old Soviet warehouse. Schileo then contacted German designer Frank Buchwald and the two began production on the first Nixie clock. The product was completed in 2015.
