This man is mastering the art of making nixie tubes, an old analog display used in the soviet union. It is obsolete right now but so many people love how it looks. However, nixies are not produced anymore (you can only find old soviet ones) so he decided to learn the whole process of making this piece of art, by hand. He will eventually scale it up.

This example is very inspiring to me since I love analog electronics (I am currently studying ECE) and would love to build analog electronics for electric guitars.

@Bernardo Carleial Ah what a fun coincidence. I just watched this video which mentions Animals as Leaders xD:

And to complete the circle, Frank Zappa was an Allan Holdsworth fan like I mentioned earlier, and I believe Tosin Abasi is as well :P

This is one of my favorite examples of mastery over the piano:

Even though his execution of the piece isn't flawless, the expression and soul with which he plays it is absolutely astounding.
