Arc Attack at the Maker Faire

at 7:02 am. Filed under Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking


Huge Tesla Coils are really cool but when you add a bit of art and danger into the mix that just makes it all that much better. Have a look at the video of the show that Arc Attack performed at the Maker Faire. If you got to see this live I am very jealous! Keep your eye on the Arc Attack show page to see them when they are performing in your area.

“Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coils, the crew of ArcAttack uses their high tech wizardry to generate a truly ‘electrifying’ performance. Two custom engineered hand built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer. A robotic drum set accompanies the spectacle, it’s high power LED’s flashing bright colors with the stroke of each mechanically actuated stick, while ArcAttack’s six members churn out rhythmic instrumental melodies.”
