Description

This object is hand constructed from a 4.5 in x 7.5 in x 2.5 in deep plastic utility box. A 14-segment B-7971 Nixie tube from Burroughs with a 2.5 inch display is mounted on the removable cover toward the front of the box; it isn't mounted in a socket, but rather the pins of the tube go through holes drilled in the cover. "Ultronic Systems Corp" is printed in white ink on the back of the tube. A power cord with a standard 2-prong plug extends through a hole drilled in the back of the box; it is 29 in long and is spliced in the middle with green plastic tape. A round 5-pin female connector with a keyway is mounted to the right of the power cord.
