    If anyone has been watching the BBC show 'Lab Rats', they might have seen a scene in it a few weeks ago, where there is what would otherwise appear to be a normal everyday light bulb, except for it is not connected to anything but is somehow illuminated.
    It have been looking around to try and find such a thing, for no reason other than the novelty of having one, but I can't find one anywhere! (no surprise really!)

    It can't be too hard to make, just like a normal light bulb shell, but a small watch type battery and an LED or two. I'd try and make one, but dismantling a light bulb without smashing it would be a little troublesome I expect!

    Anyone have any idea where I could find one? Or advice on how I could maybe make one?

    I believe a Tesla coil will cause that phenomium.

    If you find a better way, you will be rich beyond your wildest dreams.

    I don't mean a magically illuminated light bulb, what I had in mind is more of a trick with hidden workings than an actual everyday light bulb that is illuminated.

    That looks pretty much like what I'm looking for, thanks :)
