Solar power meets steampunk with this Raspberry Pi / Nixie tube mash-up

Paul Parry from Bad Dog Designs took a 1930s Vickers combined voltmeter and ammeter, refurbished it, added the Nixie tubes and then added a Raspberry Pi which translated the data coming in from his solar panels into something usable by the tubes. It’s a great project and is as retro as you can get. Read more and see more photos on his website.
