Video: Singing Tesla Coil

The musical effect of this Tesla Coil is produced by moderating the rate and duration in which is it supplied with power via midi data and a control unit.
Nikola Tesla created the first Tesla Coil in 1891, demonstrating it in America to scientists and civilians alike, before filing numerous patents as he evolved it through trial and error. Tesla Coils would go on to be commercially used in radio transmitters and electrotherapy, although their main use today is to entertain – as can be seen in the video – or to educate.
