For the Dr Who fans, or those who just like massive electrical arcs.
OK, that’s just plain cool.
Dude testing a Faraday suit to the Imperial March takes it a step further.
That is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.
I’m such a geek.
You make it sound like the two are mutually exclusive.
I’d prefer it without the background music, myself. Unless that is also somehow being created by the coils. Than that is absolutely amazing!
We in the 21st Century not only [post=11170991]call lightning from the sky[/post], we make music with it.
Aww, that just rocks! Thanks for sharing it.
That is too cool for words!
They are playing music through it (here’s a link to a wiki page on the “singing Tesla coil”) and the drums are robotic and they use various other alternative gizmos to create the music, ETA: including some pre-recorded stuff and regular live instruments.
You can tell these things are really loud because of how long the reverb goes o after they stop.
I want that played at my funeral.
Mine goes to 11.
Would I be right in thinking that these devices are also crudely transmitting wideband AM radio renditions of the tune?
I understand this. It’s the stuff in your ETA that I could do without. To my ears, they are drowning out the Tesla coils. And that’s the part I want to hear.
Cool clip, marred somewhat by the boring camera angle and almost nonexistent editing.
Thank you, Victor Fleming.
