Sylvain, AKA MicroSyl, wanted to build an audio spectrum display using old “magic eye” vacuum tubes:

The enclosure is sweet too! [via Embedded Projects]

    After Googling Magic Eye tube, I can now say that I’ve learned something new today. I guess I can pack it in for the day! Nice project using a pretty cool item.
