    Latest From Mobile Phone Wolrd - Original Apple TV Becomes Elegant Nixie Clock

    Way back in the misty depths of 2009, we brought news of Daniel Kurth’s concrete Nixie clock. Now Kurth has been at it again, only he’s using an even more dead and useless base for his clock than the original concrete: Behold, the Apple TV Nixie Clock.

    Kurth’s project uses the original, giant-sized Apple TV with its guts removed and its acrylic lid replaced with a machined PVC version. Into this lid are sunk the Nixie tubes– glowing, flickering digital numbers from the Cold War era. From these tubes you (somehow) decode the time. A controller inside lets you set 12 or 24-hour modes, a push-button dims the lights and a mains cable snakes out to power the whole thing.

    This is a fitting end for the hot, slow old Apple TV. Its graceful lines perfectly complement the old-style tubes just as well as they complemented the lines of the modern plasma TV to which it used to be connected, proving that good design is timeless, even if the tech inside isn’t.
