Step 2: What You'll Need

You will need these tools:

_Alligator clips

_A power supply that can deliver a considerable amount of current (an ATX power supply is totally fine)

You'll also need these materials:

_Aluminium foil

_A paperclip

Step 3: The Wiring

Connect a piece of foil to the ground an a unmade paperclip to the +12 volts.

Step 4: Let's Have Some Fun!

Now, just just need to touch the edge of the foil with the paperclip and watch small plasma-arcs forming at the contact point. And if you need to cut a precisely shaped hole in a sheet of foil, this thing can even be useful! :D
