Is it all in FLAC or something? That's a ridiculous amount of memory.

My friend asked me to make a divergence meter (the one from Steins;Gate)

Gave up as soon as I saw the price of nixie tubes.... even the cheapest ones will go for $8 each, excluding shipping.

And the divergence meter has 8 digits!!! frown.gif

 

being poor sucks.
I wanna get a job.

I think it's something like "same here" or "I hear ya".

Those aren't the cheapest ones. Tubes like the IN-12's are really cheap, around $3 a tube or less if you buy a few at once. They're end-view tubes instead of side-view, not sure if you need the side-view look or not. I'm building a clock with IN-8 tubes that look great, but the IN-12's are the same digit size for a much lower cost. Make sure to get a type of tube that has mercury vapor in it, or it won't last very long (avoid tubes like the IN-1's). You'll also have to generate 170 volts to drive the tubes.

b-b-but the divergence meter used side view tubes:

 

 

 

The electronics is the easy part, 170V is not that hard with boost converters.

 

I can make the same digit animation with a MCU too

On X360? Trials. PC version of Alan Wake is superior, unless you like sub-HD with antialiasing (which some people actually seem to like, saying it makes the game look like from an old VHS tape. Which kinda makes sense, considering the game is like a TV series like let's say Twin Peaks)...

Lol those digits look like the ones on the IN-18's... at a cost of about $50 per tube if you can find them.

You might want to loosen your requirements on how accurate you want your model to be. But if you want to make one, get the tubes as soon as you can. They stopped making Nixie tubes a long time ago, and the supply has been drying up with prices skyrocketing since then.

Looks like I better jump on the bandwagon while I still can.

 

IN-18 kit will be abouuuuuuut $700. confused_face.gif

You should build your own and use IN-8-2 or IN-14

@ my new amp

Sigh~

I give up building a fancy PSU that will eliminate pops and clicks....
I simply can't justify the cost with the benefits, and cost IS one of my design criteria.

So now the question is if my previous low-click supply is good enough or will we go back to using the conventional relay method.

The IN-18 look the best though, the others are tiny. confused_face.gif

 

I know it's not 'worth it', but if it's a gift, I might as well go balls to the wall.
