Anyone have a link with directions on how one would make one from a usb ionizer?

you open the device and it has a single wire which juts out and emits ions.

it is at a high voltage of a few thousand volts.

you attach this to a many sharp METAL needles the one used for cleaning/scrubbing dishes.

the other electrode is the ground electrode.

you hold the ground electrode and gradually bring the metal brush needles near to the hand,etc to be sterilized.

you will see in a darkened room the plasma glow.

a series resistor in with main electrode will prevent you getting nasty shocks possibly FATAL SHOCKS.

people with pacemakers should avoid this.

Has anyone made this? Would love to see a photo of your work or more detailed explanation. Photos of it in operation and where you connected your "ground" electrode. Did you put a pot in for the output resistor or delete it altogether. Did you put the electrodes across the resistor? Or one from chassis ground? How did you hook the electrode to the glass or the needles, did you have to build a plate for all the needles? I want to build one and have taken apart the ion generator but it's above 1000 volts and altho the current is small Itd be nice to have some further guidance so i dont end up a crispy critter! Thanks for any assistance!
