Vacuum fluorescent clocks are one of those retro items that always retain their cool. The problem is, they are usually so damn expensive that it’s hard to justify buying something just for the cool factor. This kit makes that not so much of a problem.
Now you can buy a kit and build one yourself. Of course there is some assembly required, but when you’re done, you’ll have a pretty sweet piece of retro-tech that’ll look great on your desk. You can buy the kit here for $65, and download the schematics and directions from here. And now to go place my order — don’t tell my wife.
