No you’re not reading a headline from the 40’s and 50’s, the Nutube is a brand new spin on vacuum tubes that’s in development in 2015.  Created by Korg and Noritake, the Nutube is a tiny vacuum tube that looks somewhat similar to a large DIP package microchip.  Along with the smaller size the Nutube claims to have better power consumption and reliability compared to traditional vacuum tubes.  Vacuum tubes are surprisingly still in common use with many audio electronics like amplifiers and synthesizers because they add rich and pleasing distortion to music.  The Nutube aims to make these devices smaller and more reliable without sacrificing the charm and character of vacuum tubes.
