This nixie tube clock can also spew four-letter words

Retro-style nixie tube clocks are always fun, but this one has an special function that you might want to switch off when the boss comes over for dinner.

In addition to telling time it can show words on its display, and seeing its a four letter display, that's going to mean a lot of four letter words.

Designed by a guy called Pete Hand, the four letter word generator displays random words, changing the word on display every few seconds. With 5,400 words in its dictionary you can rest assured that offensive ones rarely pop up, and you can even turn them off if you have sensitive people around.

Hand plans to offer the four letter word clock as a kit "real soon now".
