Much like vinyl and tube amps, there’s just something warm and nostalgic about old school glass Nixie tubes displaying the time that makes clocks made with them a whole lot more interesting than the standard hands and face. Unfortunately, the decades old technology only displays one color, they’re no longer in production and they have a finite lifespan. If only there were a version of the Nixie tube clock that was updated with modern technology. Enter the Gixie Clock. Dreamt up by a group of students from China, Gixie replaces the traditional Nixie tubes with updated RGB LED options that have millions of color options, last longer and use less power. The walnut base with aluminum casing (in black silver or red) and six individual tubes on top retains all the vintage style and steampunk flair of the original while updating all the technology inside so you don’t need to worry about buying fragile glass tubes from Eastern Europe.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
