INCREDIBLE Ebay Item (sorta OT)

This might be slightly off topic, but it does involve
a display technology that was used with computers of
the 50's and 60's that I find interesting. This is,
perhaps, the geekiest thing I have ever seen on eBay,

For those of you link-challenged, it is a Nixie tube
watch. Yes, you read this correctly, a watch. And its
of "reasonable" size. I had no ides Nixie tubes of
this small size were ever made.

I think this is an truly incredible combination of old
and modern technologies. I myself hope to build a 32
character by 16 line vector alphanumeric display with
D/A converters, a PIC, and a Tektronix 60X series
display, in the vein of pre-raster 1960's computer

Do You Yahoo!?
