Tesla coil art (Awesome pics!)


Forty

Recommended Posts

 

Peter Terren loves toying with Tesla coils. The 51-year-old Australian doctor bailed on his physics major during his first year of college, but that didn't stop him from pursuing his passion for electricity. In his free time, he engages in what he calls "the holy art of electrickery."

 

From small-scale physics experiments to big-and-dangerous Tesla stunts, Terren meticulously documents his projects on his website, Tesla Downunder. Terren's most recent creation is a 15-foot-tall Tesla coil Christmas tree. Here's a look at some of his supercharged masterpieces.

 

Some of the pictures of this guy's work are amazing. Check this awesome sh*t out.

 

If any of you are unfamiliar with a tesla coil, it is essentially a resonator that can "shoot" electricity across gaps to power objects without wires, like a light bulb, radio, etc...though they have many more uses than that.

This last one is a picture of electrically charged ferrofluid, which is activated by magnetic fields and forms amazing shapes and structures when charged.

Those pictures are bad ass. The one in the swimming pool takes some serious balls.

One great study, Nikola Tesla the Prodigal Genius is. Second Edit: I found another linky that works elsewhere. colgate.gif

 

That guy is cool, not only did he invent the Alternating Current but he was eventually paid off not to invent things in the USA by another very famous inventer. The Rail Gun, Broadcast Energy and allot of other things are attributed to him as the inventor. Many of his inventions appear lost....but are they?

I heard some stories about how Tesla made some machine that can transfer the entire Solar system in another galaxy, and more stuff like that. But he knew that we are not ready for that yet, and we might never be cause who knows what waits there. So he destroyed some of his works and whats left of it was used by the well known NASA

 

But thats just what i heard ph34r.gif

Everytime I think of the term Tesla Coil my mind just goes back to when I used to play Command and Conquer: Red Alert, playing as the Soviets and setting up Tesla Coils around my base and frying those pesky Allies. *zap*

 

Good times. smile.gif

Tesla is insane. Well, not really, I mean that figuratively, he's come up with some wild stuff.

 

The coil is one of the more fun ones. Have you guys seen the one that makes music? It was made by some kids at University of Illinois.

 

 

Picolini is now Pico
