The time displayed by Nixie tubes

FREE in the App Store

Nixie tubes are glass vacuum tubes that contain a wire-mesh anode and multiple cathodes, shaped like numerals or other symbols. Applying power to one cathode surrounds it with an orange glow discharge. Nixie Time simulates a clock made up of these tubes.

Tube time. Based on the Nixie tube concept, Nixie Clock puts those orange glowing vacuum tubes up on your Apple TV. You can adjust the time format to 24-hour if you prefer and also enable or disable the leading zero. For a unique and interesting clock on the big screen, this is one to check out.

Tube time

What is it about?

Nixie Time supports regular and 24 hour time formats, and you can choose to show a leading zero on the hour if you like. It displays the current time in a Nixie tube simulation, giving an ambience of basement electrical wizardry to make a unique clock.

For those who...

  • Want a clock display that will generate conversation
  • Don't need to display the date

Not for those who...

  • You want a simple time display
  • You aren't into cathodes and vacuum tubes

Why we love it

Nixie Time is just such a unique way to display a clock that we can't help but love it. It's steampunk, but not, and is definitely a throwback to the days of vacuum tube radios. Except it's a clock. Amazing concept, and it's been executed flawlessly.
