• Cold War Creations

    The purpose of Cold War Creations is to bring alive the look and feel of the Cold War, without the drawbacks of the threat of nuclear war and the tensions of the time.

    The attempt is to create Art and useful items with a Cold War style or design, bringing back the look and thoughts of that era.

Nixie Tubes - the technology

Nixie tubes were one of the first styles of digital displays. They used vacuum tube technology of the day. They're known for their individually formed numbers and soft orange glow.
Nixie's quickly went out of fashion due to high cost, high voltage interface, and delicate construction.
