MIT student Tyler Christensen went and made himself a dual-resonant solid state Tesla coil, then strapped that sucker to a hat and pumped the Mortal Kombat theme through it. Unfortunately, it broke the night before Halloween, leaving him no other option but to go trick-or-treating as his backup, "guy with a bomb on his head."
Hit the jump for a video of the hat in action.
Thanks to Alicia, who also goes to MIT. Hey, uh, what's their policy on awarding honorary doctorates to bloggers?
