Casual Friday — ArcAttack!

I saw this on Crave, and just had to pass it along.

I’ve been meaning to do a podcast episode on Tesla for a while now; maybe after work gets less crazy in a few weeks. Let’s just say for the time being that Tesla coils are essentially very good lightning generators — and if you tune them correctly, they produce some useful sounds.

In the meantime, here’s an ArcAttack performance to tide you over:

High tech never sounded so good, even in an admittedly geeky kind of way…
