IN-8 Blue Dream Nixie Clock

Dieter Wächter of and Claus Urbach of and, worked together to develop this kit.  Hopefully we can expect more from them in the future!

The kit uses Russian IN-8 tubes that have a blue LED underneath to illuminate the glass envelope. This clock has several optional features worth noting:  it can use either GPS or a DCF77 receiver to set the time.  I have never actually seen a clock offer one or the other so I think that this design is unique in that regards.
