Nixie Tube Ciapapuer - 2 - video

If you are curious how the Nixie Tube Ciapapuer looks, here's a short video:

In the end I dropped the fading effect descried in the previous post and opted to include an "off" step in the sequence.

The object is now sitting on my office desk and pretends to be reading visitors' minds. J One funny moment was when a colleague picked up the box and the "off" moment kicked in, that caused a bit of surprise and worry. I should include an accelerometer and intentionally switch off the tube when the box is moved.
