Steampunk Tesla cane
This is my latest steampunk project: the Inert Gas Discharge Ambulatory Assistance Device (i.e. 'Tesla cane'). It is named for Tesla's own name for his invention: the inert gas discharge tube.
The body of the cane is a brass tube, with a 3" plasma globe mounted on top. It is powered by four AA batteries accessed through a door cut in the side of the tube. The bottom of the cane is terminated with a small wooden dowel and rubber foot.
