vacuum tubes on Revolution

Anyone see this vacuum tube device on the TV show Revolution? Looks like EL84s are in there.

um, this is TV fantasy that includes nanobots and USB pendants that control flow of electrical current, and you're concerned about veracity of technical details? ;)

I'm just as amused at the Nixie tube clock on Alec's desk in Continuum - talk about accelerated technical advances - only 64 yrs from now?

Living across the water from Vancouver, it's a hoot to see not only one of the most geographically beautiful cities on the coast not masquerading as "a major US metropolis", but the producers' visioneering of its future.
 
I noticed some vacuum tube circuits in the black book in previous episodes too. Now that they have burned the book, we probably won't see many more.

yeah, there are many more. The computers appear to use old green screen mono monitors, yet boot Unix or Linux. This is on the same show that has nanobots capable of being reprogrammed to repair a compound fracture of the leg.

Thanks to some flakey local programming, or conflict on the PVR, I missed at least one episode, and wondered just how exactly she healed so quickly - a shizlode of stuff can happen in 45 minutes
