MB&F has just presented its final Nixie Machine with German designer Frank Buchwald. This time around, the Nixie Machine III sees an almost scorpion-like design with two large stainless steel legs up front and two smaller support legs at the back. All six Dalibor Farny Nixie tubes sit on a duo-support bracket that extends over the front legs as if the Machine is “handing over” time.

This cyberpunk clock tells the time via its glowing, gas-filled tubes that house wire-mesh with layered cathodes that read numerals 0 to 9. While the principal technology of Nixie tubes dates back to the ’50s, the Nixie Machine III is updated with a central switch “Eye” which houses wi-fi enabled functions that allow for internet connectivity for online synchronization.

Limited to 18 pieces and priced at CHF 32,000 (approximately $35,000 USD), the MB&F Nixie Machine III can be found over at all M.A.D.Gallery locations in Hong Kong, Taipei, Geneva, Dubai, and online.

For more design news, whiskey tumblers from Blade Runner are now on sale.
