How does the Plasma Ball Lamp work? You might ask.
Well, in the center of the plasma globe is an electrical power source with alternating current (electrode). Inside the clear dome around the electrode in the middle there are inert gases, such as neon or argon. When the power is turned on, the electric current runs into the gases, creating a plasma. Plasma tendrils or filaments then extend from the central electrode to the inner surface of the dome. And because they're all of the same polarity, they won't run into each other. So why do the electrical fingers of plasma follow your finger when you touch the globe? Well, as a human being you're basically a big electrical thing. And your ability to accept the flow of electrical energy fairly high. So you basically become the path of least resistance and the plasma tendril will flow towards your finger. Science!
