Dear readers

May you allow me to present my last creation, the KODASCOPE Model "Plasma".
I used an antique but broken filmprojector from 1932 as a base for this machine. After I found a very nice plasma lamp at the flea market for just a few bucks I had the idea to implement the tube into the projector to create an unique Steampunk plasma lamp.
The electronics and the transformers I placed in the old housing of the light bulb. There was enough space to hide this stuff, and to keep the look I reused the original ON/OFF switch from the projector.
To optimize the flow of the gas-discharge I added an earth cable. In the video you can see how the energy moves towards this cable...
May you like this simple machine. It looks very special in my laboratory when it runs in the darkness...

Sincerely yours

Dan Aetherman

I had the blue version of that lamp once. Wrap some tinfoil around the tip and have fun burning skin with it, yikes!

Nice work!!

It looks as though you attempted to film one of spacebovine's "Doors" pieces.

Nice work.  I haven't seen that style plasma before.  I'll have to keep an eye out for one.
