Tesla Coils

This is too cool not to share. Two solid-state Tesla coils were set up some time back in 2007, and they were controlled by another unit to play MIDI-format sound by modulating the electical charge.

I guess one of the colloquial names for these awesome things is “Zeusaphone”. Considering that those things are loud – and I’m sure we all know Zeus is famous for flinging lightning bolts from the sky – I think it’s pretty fitting. I think it’s just cool to see big flashes of electricity making music!
