Unicat retro TV channels the 1940s Up for Auction

How does technology a half-century old manage to be this sexy? We’re not certain. But this one-of-a-kind, handmade retro television — which seemingly combines an old desktop lamp and a giant magnifying glass — definitely tugs at our heartstrings. With a 5.5-inch monochrome CRT screen and no inputs to speak of, you won’t be watching Blu-rays on this set, and its PAL standard and 220V plug mean non-Europeans might not be bothered to try. Still, for an old over-the-air TV, it’s remarkably full-featured, with knobs for volume, band (VHF-L / VHF-H / UHF), brightness, contrast and V-sync, and we can’t get over its clean, handsome design. If your Nixie tube collection is getting lonely, check out the auction by going to: Unicat Retro TV If you want to purchase this fine piece you may bid on it. Bidding starts at €300 ($407.67 USD) Here are a few photos of the awesome piece.
