What Say You, Thor?: Guy Builds Homemade Tesla Rifle

May 16, 2012


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. Could you give Magneto a boner with it? Every single time. One time he was over for tea when I accidentally put a spoon in the microwave and I could see his nipples get hard through his shirt.

Hit the jump for a shot of it shooting lightning in the dark and and a video demo.


Thanks to bb, Cpt. Waffles and Matt, who agree the only thing cooler than a Tesla rifle is a Tesla bazooka. YES -- one mounted on a t-rex with ninja swords for arms!

    Yes this actually works. This man is a legitimate crazy scientist. We even shrunk him down to LEGO minifigure size just to prove it. http://www.flickr.com/photo...

    Very impressive and interesting device. I do wonder if it can be used to cook?

    Now add healing powers, you'll have a very familiar gun.

    I'd add a vent in the middle that spouts conductive gasses to arc through.

    I think its just a Tesla coil on its side, how would you carry it without it shocking you? or misfiring at random things?

  • Warning! Do not use while showering!

  • Just Horrible . . . and I'd bet he can't even sing

  • Ry Keener

    Is this thing even portable? 

  • $18922249

    The better question... how will I fit this into my trousers?

  • I think the best question is, would the middle bit fit snugly around my manhood.
