Designer Paul Fryer loves experimenting with electricity. In his latest piece of electronic art, he visits some older technology that would be considered ancient to most.

Paul Fryer uses 32 vacuum tubes on a 64-socket board to make the ultimate chess-playing canvas. The board is amazing to look at as every piece lights up as it is inserted in the socket. Check out this interesting piece by Paul Fryer in the featured gallery and get a feel for how it works.
