In this article,a small and simple procedure to hack the vacuum tube has been shown. Here are some interesting patches are being shown that can be implanted over the vacuum tubes. Read on to know more
The project shows some simple hacks that can be implemented over the vacuum tubes to make them more useful and fun to use.
Vacuum tube Nightlight
Vacuum tube could also work as a nightlight by just implementing some patches. For this a 6V tube operating at 12V is required and is mounted directly to the modified wall wart.
Vacuum tube candle
This implementation of the patch to vacuum tube ia almost similar to the vacuum night light but the esthetics of the vacuum in this case comes like a flame that uses the vacuum tube as a candle.
Vacuum tube memory key
This patch is implemented with the help of the Dremel diamond cutoff blade and some dead bug magic.
A semiconductor contains a number of switching elements like transistors that are bunched in a small space that have a higher density.
This could be the possible reason why before the invention of the semiconductors vacuum tubes were being widely used for the storage purposes in the computers.
