Tesla's Lamp - USB Plasma Ball
Invented by pioneering inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla in the late 19th century, the Plasma Ball has captivated viewers with the awe of raw electricity ever since.
Filled with a mixture of inert Noble Gases - such as Argon, Xenon and Neon - the globe centres around an electrode emitting an electric (AC) charge. This charge stimulates the gas particles, causing them to create the incredible luminescent threads we see.
As it turns out, human flesh is a much better conductor of electrical charge than glass or gas - so when we touch the globe with our finger, the charge is attracted to us - almost as if we can control electricity by sheer force of will!
- Functions by USB connection.
