Handmade 1940s TV looks straight out of the retro future

While this TV is nearly 70 years old, it still looks strangely futuristic. A one-of-a-kind, handmade specimen, it features a 5.5-inch monochrome CRT screen and looks like it mated with a desk lamp at some point. It doesn't have any inputs, so there's no way you can hook it up to, say, an Xbox 360, but that probably wouldn't look so hot anyways.

This crazy thing is currently up for auction now, with the starting bid at 300 euros. Hey, that's cheaper than the TV you have now, I'll bet.
