In 2017 German designer Frank Buchwald has designed a second Nixie Machine, that’s even larger than the original, and features a stunning base of steel and brass only to make things even more outrageous than before. Using new tubes, created from scratch by Czech engineer Dalibor Farny, this incredible table clock is even more appealing and it’s apparently more durable as well. The Nixie Machine II features a Wi-Fi enabled controller that keeps the clock connected to the internet, allowing it to display the correct time every second of the day. Your phone or computer will control everything, including scroll effects, day/night modes, dimming, and time zones. Part of a limited series, the Nixie Machine II will only make 12 people happy, with each piece set to cost 29,700 CHF ($30,000).
