This High Voltage Fog Is Controlled by Pointing (BiFrost Nebulagraphy)

This video from Plasma Channel could mean we are a little bit closer to interactive holograms. If a fog is electrically grounded, and you are charged to a high voltage, some pretty remarkable things occur. Pointing at it draws lines, the fog forms vortexes, and even invisible ion bridges are formed. Ultimately, this phenomenon may […]
