You can (soon) buy your very own Nixie tube chessboard kit from LaserMad. It takes some extensive putting together and some electrical engineering, but the end product looks great!

Some stunningly (sorry) beautiful pictures of various plants with 80,000 volts of electricity running across them. Through a fascinating process described in the article, Robert Buelteman laid plants on an aluminum plate that floated in liquid silicone, ran the electricity through them and then photographed them with a minute light from a fiber-optic cable to ran over the plants. He even would direct electricity to certain areas using a wand and car battery. Beautiful mesh of art and science.
