What is it?
Divergence Meter is inspired by the popular Japanese anime Steins:Gate, which follows the journey of a self-proclaimed crazy scientist Rintarou Okabe and his friends as they race to save the world from a certain catastrophic future using their home-made time machine.
The Divergence Meter is the world-line meter made by the future Rintarou to help track the degree of alteration to his initial timeline, the goal is to divert pass 1 degree. This would mean that he has crossed out of the possibility of any ripple effects causing World War 3.

We have provided customers with the option to choose from 3 types of tubes to go with their Divergence Meters,
- IN-14 (Russian tubes) – Requires soldering
- IN-8-2 (Russian tubes) – Requires soldering
- NL-5440A (American tubes) – No soldering required
With the NL-5440A nixie tube being the closest to the actual Divergence Meter used in the anime.
All tubes are 100% authentic brand-new 1990s USSR & American Nixie tubes. Russian tubes will require soldering while the American tubes are designed for easy plug-and-play installation. To replace existing american tubes, simply pull out and plug in a new set of tubes to continue hence. No soldering is required.
For shipping purposes, all tubes will be removed from the Divergence Meter, customers will need to solder the Russian tubes in. American tubes will not require soldering, simply plug & play.
The Divergence Meter is made with Stainless Steel and laser cut to perfection. For the top, we used a customized PVC breadboard to mimic the actual make-shift look from the anime. Every clock comes with its own collector’s serial number for authenticity and a base laser engraved with operation features for easy reference.
Our Divergence Meter comes with an Infra-red remote control with adjustable settings. We have updated the firmware to the latest version and if there are updates, you may download it at our website and install the firmware via the USB port located at the back of the Meter.
