Exciting science! Large scale Tesla coils with a human subject, set to music.

Hooked on Classics: The Tesla Coil Performing Sci-Fi Themes

Do not try this at home folks!

Watch this video. Okay, I am officially impressed! I have always wanted to stand on the Tesla coil platform and do this. When I was in school we had a Tesla coil exhibition come in, a fellow student was selected to be the participant. I was so jealous I could barely contain myself but what I saw more than satisfied my curiosity. This comes very close!

A Faraday cage bodice suit and Tesla coil unite to perform some amazing acts of videography like you have never witnessed before!

From Wikipedia, an explaination of what a "Faraday Cage" is:

"A Faraday cage or Faraday shield is an enclosure formed by conducting material, or by a mesh of such material. Such an enclosure blocks out external static electrical fields...

...To a large degree, Faraday cages also shield the interior from external electromagnetic radiation if the conductor is thick enough and any holes are significantly smaller than the radiation's wavelength."

Faraday cages are named after the English scientist Michael Faraday, who invented them in 1836.

A DOCTOR WHO musical, to the Stylings of the Tesla Coil

From Wikipedia again, comes this regarding Tesla Coils:

"Modified Tesla coils are widely used as igniters for high power gas discharge lamps, common examples being the mercury vapor and sodium types used for street lighting. Although electronic circuit controllers have been developed Tesla's original spark gap design is less expensive and has proven extremely reliable."

It makes we wonder how many useful and inovative devices have been denied the consumerist public that might otherwise be available had the bulk of Tesla's inventions been marketed.

HAARP?

HAARP: High Frequency ACtive Auroral Research Program

The HAARP or “High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.” This may be what this next video clip is about. It too is a Tesla coil, apparently involved in atmospheric research. The business of HAARP seems to come up in conversation involving “Black Operations”, -secret government coverups, top secret and unmarked helicopter reconnaissance discussions.

I have no idea what they are about, but Wikipedia cites that this organization is dedicated to “…provide a research facility to conduct pioneering experiments in ionospheric phenomena… used to analyze basic ionospheric properties and to assess the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for communications and surveillance purposes.” I included this video as it too is a Tesla Coil, on a much larger scale.

Sounds like ‘Black Ops’ to me. They have pretty kewl toys though, huh?
