HOWTO make a large animated Haunted Mansion crystal ball

Barry Belcher describes a simple way to make a Haunted Mansion Madame Leota-style video crystal ball, using an old flat panel display, a novelty brandy snifter, and a piece of reflective plastic. It's a Pepper's Ghost effect, and it's very effective — a great companion to this mobile-phone sized baby version.
