This Tesla Coil Christmas Tree Could Kill You

I hope Santa's careful around Peter Terren's Christmas tree, because the thing is a Tesla coil with some colour filters set up to make all the sparks, zaps and electric arcs look oh-so-pretty and oh-so-deceptively harmless.

This isn't the first time that Terren has made a Tesla coil Christmas tree, nor do I think it will be the last. He uses slow exposure photography to capture these incredible image, taking about two minutes for each of the shots. You can check out his site for some behind the scenes pictures of how he's arranged everything for past projects.

In the meantime, I'll just be here ooh-ing and aaahh-ing for a while. [Tesla Down Under via Neatorama via Make]
