Mini Plasma Ball

SKU: 400005173516

$19.99 $17.99 Member Price

Fascinating to watch and even more fun to play with, Mini Plasma creates a dramatic display of light inside a hand blown glass sphere. Just place your fingers on the surface and watch as colored bolts of glowing light follow your every move. You can actually "feel" the energy as the light gently tickles your fingertips! Each plasma comes neatly boxed with its own AC power adapter. This is such a cool gift for an executive or teenager alike!

The Plasma Ball is a mysterious, mesmerizing, scientific desktop display.  The glass contains a mixture of gasses that turn into a plasma when exposed to the electromagnetic energy emanating from the coils in the base.  The streaming lightning will respond to your touch.
