The Plasma ball has been around for years. They used to cost an arm and a leg if I remember correctly and then they dropped in price quite a bit. For those who need their plasma ball fix you can now get a USB version which works just like a regular plasma ball that is plugged in. The USB port can provide sufficient power to light up the gasses inside and create a dazzling display of plasma type stuff.
The USB plasma ball stands about 6 inches tall and can be switched on and off by either unplugging it or by the switch located on the base. All we need now is the USB Plasma Ball Flash Drive with cosmic data fragments floating around inside.
