You can probably tell, I like plasma-based toys. This one's pretty simple. At certain focal points of a stained-glass window, like say the crown, or perhaps the whole window, insert a large flat plasma storm behind the stained glass. Enjoy otherworldly ethereal lighting shows.

Insert giant kaleidoscope wheel if desired.

       Since it is a window anyway, can you make it solar powered?

       I suppose there could be some cells buried in it in a few places, but I'm not aware of any solar cells that aren't opaque. It would also be difficult to get the voltage requirements, with typical commercial cell output.

       Difficult to ascertain the effect on Stink-Filled-Windows, this plasma is.

       Thank you p, that would totally rock. As would plasma-enhanced window displays of the book of Ezekiel.

       Just found a place in town that teaches stained-glass cutting. I'm signing up; maybe I'll bake this.

       Why stop at a storm? Can't one order translucent plasma TV panels?
