Ryan Brooks's 6502 Nixie Clock.

I love Cold War chic like [ryan brooks]’s great looking nixie tube 
clock. There have been other microcontroller based nixie tube clocks so 
Ryan decided to base his on the venerable MOS Technology 6502. The 6502 
is the same 8-bit processor used in the Apple II and Commodore 64. He’s 
got a couple interesting notes from the construction.

I started this project about two years ago when large tubes (Z5680M in 
this case) were still available. Since then, any large tube is 5x the 
price it was -- if you can find them.
