EL wire nixie prototype

Testing an idea to make a nixie tube with EL wire instead of the vacuum tube elements. The number forms are Futura, cut on the Epilog laser at NYC Resistor and stacked together with 3mm spacing. Unfortunately the wire is too dense and too dim, so the numbers in the back are very obscured. Some more details at NYCR's blog.
