    Remember yesterday's video of Tesla's new robot penis car charger? Well this is the same video with Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On' added, making it infinitely better. I never thought I'd be aroused by a robot video, but my current boner speaks volumes. Jk jk, my boner only ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of one of Tesla's prototype chargers demonstrating its ability to locate a car's charging port and plug itself in. Why does this exist? Can people not be bothered to plug their own cars in? I don't sit around at the gas station waiting for Johnny Five t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the main theme from Pacific Rim being performed on dueling Tesla coils while an exposed-brain robotic drummer tries to suck all the lightning into its eyeballs. You ever rubbed your socks on the carpet to build up static electricity then touched a friend's e... / Continue →

    This is a video of a mad scientist (although he looks sort of happy in a "never learned how to smile" kinda way) showing off his homemade Tesla coil rifle. It's a battery operated Tesla coil in the form factor of a rifle. Could you take down Thor with it? Not a chance. Cou... / Continue →

    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-trea... / Continue →

    Those...are some serious cans. NOTE: Full-size version HERE in case those things aren't big enough for you already. This is a steampunk Wonder Woman (digitally) painted by deviantARTist papaninja (aka Serge Birault) using his wife as a model because she wouldn't let him use... / Continue →

    I'm not really that into performance art unless it involves the naked ladies, but I thought this guy was okay. And not in a homoerotic way either. OF COURSE IN A HOMOEROTIC WAY! Now rub your feet on the carpet and touch my nose. DO IT! Other Electronic Music: Tesla Coil Ja... / Continue →

    Scientologists at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Florida are building the world's most powerful magnet. When finished, the fridge rapist "will reach a power of 100 tesla when it's complete, which is a whopping 67 times more powerful than the magnets in a typica... / Continue →

    Well we've seen Tesla coils making music before, and we've even seen a pretty wicked plasma speaker, and now -- a Tesla coil guitar amp. Unfortunately, I don't have any more information on the thing, so I'll make some up. The device was actually constructed by the thunder god... / Continue →

    The picture above shows a cordless drill a man modded into a little handheld Tesla Coil. As is evident from the picture, the little coil is great for things like, um, making a light bulb glow like a plasma globe. Neat buddy, but can you mod a cordless drill to put holes in wood... / Continue →

    There have been musical Tesla coils in the past (even ones that play part of the Super Mario Bros theme from the underworld), but until now I've never seen two together playing the entire Super Mario theme. The music that you hear is coming from the sparks that these two iden... / Continue →

    "Mr. Fix It" Rick is at it again, this time attempting to carve a pumpkin with his CD Tesla Turbine. He uses compressed air to power the thing, and has modified the turbine from last time to ensure a bit more safety. The damn video is almost 9 minutes long so I recommend just... / Continue →
