The Nerdiest Music Ever – Brought to You by Nikola Tesla
Ever see Tesla coils as a kid? The first time I saw one was at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. We went a few times when I was a kid. (Okay, and a few more as an adult.) I loved watching the coil light up, eventually lighting the bright Telsa Coil sign in front. I never thought about the fact they could make music when put in pairs. Well, until now.
A few days ago, io9 posted a great compilation of songs played on Tesla coils. The combination of light show and electronica make each of the clips posted absolutely amazing. Head over and take a listen, maybe segue it into one of those, “Hey kids, let’s learn about science!” afternoons.
