"Digital Numeric Relevator
Mk XIII - Hexadecimal Habitation"
completed July 1995
10.5" X 7" X 7"
This piece represents a small departure for me in that it also displays the characters A-F that form the hexadecimal number base as used in computer coding. Sometimes it will spell 4 letter words as it randomly changes.
The visible electronics were found loose in a surplus store in Oakland, CA. It consists of a big glass neon display, and a second driver board below that uses many old and dated driver chips. I added a randomizer circuit inside the base to ensure that the numbers are completely unpredictable.
At 2" high
these were the largest numbers that I had used by this
point in the growing series. Some of the segments are beginning
to fail - sometimes staying on or off.
This piece is available for $500.00
