Nixie Chessboard – check out this cool take on the classic game

Nixie tubes went out of fashion for a variety of very good reasons. Two are probably at the top of that list. One, they break easily and two, they’re prone to general failures. Still they look awesome which is why we are in love with the Nixie Chessboard.

This chessboard comes fully assembled for all your glowing, vintage gameplay needs. The entire thing is powered through the board so all you need to do is plug it in and you’re ready to play. The pieces are round IN-7 nixes, fitted in brass. The symbols are chosen from whatever they could find that had enough of one type for everything they need.

These are limited editions because, as mentioned earlier, they don’t make these things anymore. So if you want one of these boards, you better order before they run out of pieces. Each one is made by hand and as ordered. You can get your own for $661.68.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
