Ein unter Hochspannung stehendes Stahlseil pendelt von der Decke. Berührt es die ebenfalls stromführenden metallenen Bodenplatten, entlädt es sich mit einem feinen, scharfen Funkenschlag.
A high-voltage steel cable swings from the ceiling. Each time it touches the metal floor plates, which are also electrically charged, it discharges fine, sharp sparks.
