ImNoGod, they adjust the tone by adjusting the frequency of the AC current flowing through the primary coil.

Darn then one I posted about tesla coils, didn't make it. I guess the theme of it was just not commonly known

Excuse my ignorance, but how are they adjusting tone with those coils?

See, the only way that could have gotten better is if someone ran through, got fried, and then it played the little ditty the game plays when you lose...

You know the one... *ahem* Doot doot doo doo doo doo doo doo doo dootaloooooooo... remember?

That was very cool.

Call me pessismistic but that could have been easily done (well at least not as difficult) by just programing the teslas to do it to that rhythm and dub a strange version of Mario Bros over the top of it on the video.

But fingers crossed it was real: I would be too disapointed if it was. That's one sexy video you've got there, kudos to IAB

That's the coolest thing EVER.

I wonder what the guy who took a photo half way expected to see on the photo.

Not only is this a repost of something already on IAB but its a rehash of a link posted to Digg yesterday. Same with the "Sci-fi inventions that suck" post. How about some originality here?

I am asking, tell me more about Telsa Coils?
This amazing, but I am more of a biology girl... how do they work (in more detail)?
Obviously I am going to do research so don't yell please, but it is more palatable if someone else explains as well:)

Amazing. I wonder how they accomplished this. Kind of makes me want to whip out my Super Nintendo and play SMB. Boy, am I glad I never sold that.

wow, I've just learned that Tesla coils actually exist *and* they can be used for music!

I wonder if they could be programmed to do some effects that could mix with drum and bass?

Tesla coils are basically electrical transformers. The sparks are arcs of electrical current leaping through the air. To activate the coils, you use very high voltages and currents. You can change the frequency of the current in the primary coil, which is how you alter the pitch of the sound created by the sparks. That's how they make music with it.
