Retro Way to Evoke Your Inner Evil Genius

Some designs are so retro, they may need explaining. This Tube Lamp is one. Before chips and before transistors, there were these vacuum tubes. They disappeared for a while, but now they're back, but this time, just for fun.

"This Tube Lamp is an homage to high end audio amplifiers, with some funky details," SlipperBrick wrote. "What you get is a series of 9 tubes with 25 Watt lamps inside. The glass tubes glow when switched on, so you can pretend you are a mad scientist."

A black bakelight box, a dimmer, and toggle switch complete the lamp that any retro tech lover will fawn over. Evil geniuses unite.
