Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm new to this forum, and hopefully this is the right place to post this.

I was watching the Modern Marvels episode recently entitled "Deep Freeze". A guy named Steve Spangler was a guest on the show to demonstrate some of the effects of liquid nitrogen. Anyway, it shows Steve in his lab, and behind him, he has some sort of plasma electricity toy. Does anyone know where I can find one of those? I have looked everywhere and am not having any luck, and am just wondering if anyone owns or has seen one somewhere?

http://videos.wittysparks.com/id/2189167677" [Broken], you can see it in the background at about 1:12. Thanks in advance if you can help.

P.S. it is the electricity toy that is turned on and functioning.

Here's a giant one for $700

I googled "plasma tube" and got some promising results.

I didn't watch the video, but I imagine you are talking about a plasma globe.

They are between 20 and 40 dollars. Google and all kinds of ads come up.

It was a variation of a globe, yes, but distinctly more "tube-like".

I see. Hopefully they have small, much less than $700 ones.
