Over the years, many hardware hackers have been inspired by robotic art. Whether it’s the vivid descriptions of Asimov and Clark, the spectacular visual effects in the 1927 movie “Metropolis”, or the robots waving their arms wildly in “Lost Space”, the robots in science fiction have prompted many people to My own creation becomes a reality.

The DC-to-DC converter increases the 3.7v provided by LiPo to the 170v required by Nixies. Once the two-hour battery life expires, the hidden USB-C port will charge the battery.Two customized Nixie driver boards are used as the host of Arduino Pro Micro, and [Tavis] already Make PCB design available For those who wish to build their own Nixie project.
As you can see in the video below the break, the results are simply fascinating!
