Lightbulb "Vacuum Tube" Chess Set :D

Hey guys check this one out, a chess set made out of tubes (although they don't seem to be real ones) It looks cool! The two sides glow blue and red in reference to Star Wars, see it here: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2009/...ers-and-glows/

Looks awesome, but it also looks very hard to tell between any of the pieces apart from pawns.

Very cool! But like all tube things you probably have to turn it to 11 to get anything good out of it...
