Plasma Ball & HDR

Steven Gibbs says that a plasma globe is like a mini Tesla coil. When I put a spring bulb next to a plasma ball the bulb begins to glow. That is because electricity travels outside the glass ball.

In fact, using a plasma ball with an HDR unit is supposed to make it more powerful. This might have to do with the magnetic field generated by the HDR.
