Beautiful failure: EL wire nixie

El wire Nixi Tubes

Not all projects lead to success, but sometimes even in their failure there’s some beauty. This attempt at emulating a nixie tube using EL wire was a valiant attempt. Unfortunately, the wire just wasn’t bright enough to pull it off in this configuration. Even though the project was a failure, the pictures sure make this look pretty. Maybe without the plexi it would work? Maybe the unlit wires obstruct the hidden ones too much.
