    It'd have been better if it was playing the monkey island theme tune.

    They're not really that dangerous as long as you observe some sensible safety precautions. :)

    That is too good :jawdrop: i kinda don't belive all that music came just from the tesla coils, if it really did, then that is worthy of a nobel prize or something like that :rock:

    It's a plasma speaker. Any sound can be reproduced by modulation of a spark. You don't need a tesla coil to make one. You could make one at home with some inexpensive parts including a 12v car ignition coil. I was researching these about a month ago to make one for outdoor use Summer parties. Combination speaker and bug zapper in 1 Cheesecake.
