EL wire Nixie

EL Wire neo-Nixie
Before I found those top-view Nixies, I tried to build an EL Wire "Nixie Tube" display. It works ok, but there is too much opacity for it to work well.
Catarina helped me build a prototype of a "Nixie" tube illuminated with electroluminescent wire. Unfortunately the wires are too dense and too dim to work well with the ten layers of thickness, so the prototype is a beautiful failure. The number frames are based on Futura and cut on our Epilog laser using my opensource epilog driver.
