    zomg. awesome.

    (psst. he's not really playing the thing. the audio is put through some gubbins which modulate a square wave through the tesla coil. he just pretends to play - in reality his role could be taken by any earthed conductor)

    still - best use of a tesla coil to play music, ever.

    Is it wrong for my first brainwave was: "I want to try that!" instead of "That's dangerous".

    It's not even that. Someome has to actually play a theramin, the tesla would sound the same even if it grounded through a pole in the ground.

    I really don't know what the idea behind the guy in the suit is, like someone playing air guitar lol

    It only qualifies for bad@$$ if he was doing it without the Faraday suit. :rock:

    I love watching that flickering light actually stop flickering in the video whenever the coil is discharging.
