Lamptron Unveils Fan Controller with Nixie Tubes

Remember how numbers were electronically displayed just before LEDs and seven-segments? Incandescent bulbs called Nixie tubes? Lamptron appears to have caught a hold of some new old stock of Nixies, and decided to make a fan-controller based on them, which could be ideal for steampunk-themed builds. Called the FC10, the controller drives four fan channels, and speed is displayed on a scale of 0-9, using those Nixies. The controller draws power from a 4-pin Molex connector, and can supply each channel with up to 30W of power. It fits into a 5.25-inch drive bay. Lamptron is expected to sell the FC10 from later this month.
