Default Re: An interesting magic eye substitution

It's a very good idea, especially in view of the fact that the end view octal MEs are getting expensive and are only bright for a few hundred hours. In a domestic set that has a lot of use, this would be great.

I've sometimes wondered how much it would take to have a round indicator made up using the same technology as the flourescent displays on CD players. It would probably cost a mint.

The linear neon indicators from the thirties blackened quickly and had a very short life.
