How to implement a real-time Kirlian image on computer monitor

Remember colorful Kirlian images people's fingers and plant leaves? Popular in the '70's, these were generated by placing color film (inside a dark envelope) between your finger tip and a metal plate that is pulsed with high voltage. Corona discharge generated a beautiful aura-like image. That was 30 years ago. Now let's do this real-time and display on computer monitor. Another intriguing twist to this is the research reported by Professor William Tiller at http://tillerfoundation.com/subtle-energies.html where he states that it is relatively easy to mentally influence the breakdown voltage of a gas. Imagine a grid of sensing wires, arranged in an x-y pattern. Sandwiched between the x and y plane is a substance that is driven almost to the breakdown point by voltage difference between the x and y wires. A single x and y pair causing near breakdown would be one pixel of data. An image is generated by energizing all of the x-y combinations in a sweeping pattern. Energizing current is used to determine pixel intensity. There are other approaches to implement this concept. Do you have different idea or an embellishment of this one?
