Alright alright, yes, it's another snow globe idea.

If the particles in a snow globe were very close to neutrally buoyant at room temp, then placing it atop a stereo should cause the glittery bits to assume random pleasing patterns. If the particles were chemiluminescent it would make for a faux glow snow globe fo sho y'know.

       OOh ooh oooh!   

       If the particles were inducibly magnetic (e.g. if they contained iron filings) then they might do fascinating things in changing magnetic fields - like near your stereo.

       [4whom] - that is the coolest thing I have seen in the last three days. Thanks for the link.

       Ditto, and it's got me wondering if a similar effect could be mimicked by bouncing the waves of a single sound source off of four flat planes to converge in the center.   

       The "particles" could actually be cryogenically frozen people packed inside a transparent spherical container.

       poor man's sono-luminescence, but good idea despite being a s*** g****.   

       I've taken the pledge, at S*** G****s Anonymous...it's one day at a time brothers, one day at a time...<wanders around picking up dog ends>

       When we finish with hollowing out the moon we could do that... I don't know about transparency though.
