I saw those in Popular Science or something, I'd really like one...or I'd at least like to take a peek inside.

I like how they say atoms are "miniature worlds". Yay for science.
There was something else like this too from then, but it more of a motion picture box... Can't recall the name of it, but it was radioactive. Probably had radium in it too.

Actually looking it up, a lot of things had radium in them in the early 20th century.
