    I have one of those Globes that has Electricity flowing threw it in all directions and when you touch it the electrical streams concentrate to mainly that one area you are touching it. I am wondering if there is a material out ther that dose the same thing when put on the globe other than you touching it???

    I used to have one of those, but I found that leaving it turned on gave me fierce headaches.

    I would imagine anything with enough mass set on the globe would trigger the effect, not just your hand. I never tried it with mine.

    Wikipedia says any conductor will set it off, although it warns that any metal object poses risk of shock or burning.

    I am looking to for something to tape to any of my MP hands (Really MP-05) so that it look like he is getting a massive power charge for a Diorahma.

    I don't know about that, but I'll tell you something I just discovered. If you hold your hand on one and try to operate the mouse-pad on a lap-top, the pad won't read your finger. Pretty kewl.

    Aluminum foil fingertips. Or maybe some graphite dust on his fingers? (grind some pencil lead on them)

    Well first you have to lick the globe while its on....

    I'm kidding, don't do that.

    I would use some stickytack and a wire that you can conseal on the transformer, use the sticytack to attach to the hand and run the wire to where it can be grounded, you holding it should be enough.
