GPS module already contains some kind of procesor, which is capable of driving NIXI tube's driver. Of course it will require to integrate custom code with GPS firmware, this may be at least expensive. Otherway FPGA is really pain is the ass, in such simple project, where 8bit microcontroller will be much cheaper and easier to applicate.

LOL -- I do have a couple of spare tubes for my Nixie tube writswatch, but I hope the existing ones don't fail, because replacing them will be a mega-pain

@Nnanci: what are some of the modern day practical uses of nixie tubes

Before 7-segment LED displays came on the scene, Nixie tubes were the height of technology. Today, I don't know about "practical uses of Nixie tubes," I just knwo that they look really cool and retro. For example, I LOVE my nixie-tube watch from Cathode Corner

I like the vintage feel in this video also, however i am curious as to whether they  still have many vital technology applications now.

(They are not so hot under extreme vibration, unless custom made)

(Nixies are a tad better than plain non custom filament tubes)

I love Nixie Tubes -- you are absolutely right that it gives the right vintage feel as an add-on to an old truck. Funny, though, when I've seen the Nixie tube watches I feel like they look very futuristic!!!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
