Vacuum Tube Chess Set For Tesla

In some words, Vacuum Tube Chess Set is an extremely pretty chess board. The “Chess Set For Tesla,” by Paul Fryer, uses 32 vacuum tubes and 64 plugs to ensure that those pieces don’t tip over during play. And of course, they light up, sohwing the type of piece on top. Maybe this is an impractical board, as the tubes would likely get too hot to handle unless you’re playing in the northern reaches of Sweden or Norway. [via Dvice]
