I have never seen them before. They look like incandescent 7 segment displays but have little dots for letters. They remind me a lot of these: www.ineedcaffeine.com/content/2009/08/eb...ncandescent-display/ I wonder if they added the dots for decoration to make it look more high tech?

Hi everybody,

I have been lurking for some time, but this is my first post here.

They are indeed a form of light pipe, they are actually fiber optic, six 7-segment displays with decimal point and one alphanumeric.

The date code on the 7-seg displays is 7631 and on the alpha 7209. They where directly driven by 74LS47N's
