How to make one of these ? Answered

I want to make on of these but dont really know how.

It has a motor in it that produces static charge.

I was thinking just have a little motor of a toy and put something a piece of pvc plastic on the end inside a pvc pipe ?

Like the site says the toy is just a little Van de Graaff generator. These are simple to make and create a large static charge. If you make one big enough you can get your hair to stand on end as you touch it. Have a look at the Wikipedia article about them. Here is a How Stuff Works article about them too.
