A super geek present: a Kelvin dropper

A Kelvin dropper is a device that generates electricity by simply letting water pour down through two metal rings. While the setup is fairly complicated, the effect is incredible: you obtain a couple of thousands of volts that generate a spark between two metal balls. Thunderf00t has created the experiment with minimal cost and it […]

Spark Suit and Musical Tesla Coil [Amazing]

How much does it help to know a little Physics? THIS much. The voltage from the Tesla coils could be fatal, but with some rubber boots you get the protection needed. Musical Tesla coils create sound by generating high voltage electricity (localized lightnings). Although you know that it can’t hurt you, you still get some […]

WOW – I want a Tesla Coil Hat too [video]

You love Mortal Kombat? I have played that game a lot of times and the music is kinda… inspiring. In fact, so inspiring that Tyler Christensen has made a Tesla Coil Hat. Telsa coils can be used to generate very nice music. Tesla sought to create a device that transmits electrical energy wirelessly around the […]
