    Those are some great looking Tesla Coils.

  2. I saw the analogous show at UIUC EOH in 2008. They were being driven by MIDI from Lippold Haken’s Continuum Keyboard. Here are some blurry but colorful photos:

    When used as a musical instrument, I’ve heard the term Zeusaphone attributed to a pair of Tesla coils.  I find the fanciful name endearing.

    WHY NO VIDEO BOINGBOING? Man, I love me some lightning-based PA system…

    Those look like Stark Industries coils.

    I have cell phone videos but the quality isn’t very good.  The event was awesome!
