Musical Whimsy with a Tesla Coil

Many of our posts to date have been serious posts about Tesla, Science, Education and Community Improvement.  There are more whimsical applications of Tesla, though.   Some clever folks have discovered that if you adjust the charge from a Tesla Coil in such a way, it can generate “music”.  That electrical music, in turn, can be partnered with choreography to create very innovative entertainment.  Below are some videos of a few musical/choreography groups who have capitalized on these aspects of the Tesla Coil to create performances in public venues and on television (including America’s Got Talent).  There is also a video on how a keyboard is set up to play two Tesla coils.  Very interesting, informative, AND FUN!!
