It appeared to be a small hand-held Tesla coil inside an attaché-sized box
that had various shaped vacuum bulbs which could be attached and glowed with a
purple glow. If you inserted a metal rod instead of a bulb, you could hold
the rod in one hand and make a fluorescent tube glow by picking it up with the
other hand.....

It could be a good idea to make sure you don't have an X-ray generator here. I remember an article from a Scientific American book some time ago on how to make one, and there is just enough overlap here that I thought I would mention it.
