LED Nixies

Well, now you have a choice when fabricating your maker project with cool numbers for counting or indicating. You can go with the tried and true Nixie bulbs or the new and fantastic 5V LED “Lixies”.

The Lixies depend upon Edge Lit Display techniques to drive them through a controller. Plus! They come in multiple colors to boot.

I like how simple they are to power. Nixie has scary demands.

Regular Nixies are really cool looking but seem terrifying to fabricate.
