Category: Tags: , , , ,


A nixie tube based ‘plasma globe’ toy that glows in response to anything conductive touching the outer glass.

The main feature though is when touched it will operate a low-voltage relay for about a second which can be used to interface to your own project or connect to a PC motherboard to switch a computer on/off. Activating your missile launch sequence is also possible but not recommended.

Supplied as a kit of all parts required, it will take most constructors around 30 minutes to assemble and includes an IN-1 nixie tube, USB lead, suitable UK plug mains to 5V adapter and phenolic laminate case parts.

    I am an experienced soldier and yet this took me more than an hour – also I could not find the instructions so I had to figure this out as I went, even if i had the instructions i think this would have still taken me about an hour – otherwise for the money, it comes with all parts (of fire quality) and an or right nixie tube
