You may have heard of ArcAttack!, the electronic rock group that makes use of a robotic drummer and Tesla coils to generate music via interpreted MIDI tracks. In this clip, Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame is locked inside a Faraday cage while bolts of electricity from the coils zap harmlessly against it. The band’s tune of choice? AC/DC’s “Back in Black”. I must say, it’s quite a sight.
If sitting through the requisite introductions sound less than exciting, the interesting part of the video starts around 1:40 mark, so feel free to fast forward. I don’t think Savage will be winning any dance awards any time soon, but I wouldn’t mind him trying out ArcAttack!’s Faraday suit next time.
