Zappin’ To The Oldies: A Tesla Coil Plays The Hits

The folks atMIT’s Electronics Research Society know how to put on a show. In this short video they show us a Tesla coil connected to a keyboard that can play jaunty tunes using pure, unadulterated energy. While these guys are no musical virtuosos, they make up for their lack of training by creating an instrument that can feasible flatten you like a blast of heat lightning.

Sadly, no one yelled “Play Freebird.”
