T-1000 Nixie Clock
The T-1000 is a fully featured Nixie Clock, contained within a sleek stainless steel case. It features original German Z570M Nixie tubes that date back to the late 1980s. The clock itself is completely hand assembled and tested in the UK. The T-1000 displays time and date, and also incorporates a full color lighting system under the tubes for added effect. Many features are available such as auto night shut down, 12/24 hour mode selection and even an alarm.
Nixie tubes were invented in 1955, and were a means for early electronic devices to display numbers. They consist of a clear glass tube, with the numbers from 0 – 9 are stacked behind each other. The tube is filled with neon gas and then sealed. Each digit has its own connection, and when a small electrical current is applied, the neon gas around the digit is ionized, which causes the distinctive orange glow. There is no heat produced, so the tubes can last up to 20 years.

About the Designer
Bad Dog Designs founder and electronics engineer Paul Parry grew up dismantling and sometimes successfully reassembling all kinds of electronics and devices. His first Nixie tube clock was assembled on a whim—without even realizing the appeal of the steampunk aesthetic he was creating. The passion project has since evolved into a full-blown entrepreneurial endeavor, employing both Paul and his wife Karen full time. Bad Dog Designs earned a Merit award in the International Arts & Crafts Design Awards in 2016. Paul is also a recognized artist by the UK's Craft Council, and works as an artisan on the BBC's "Money for Nothing" TV series.
