Thanks to the power of the Internet we can all experience the fruits of someone else's free time. Today that fruit comes to us in the form of a musical presentation of memorable video game tunes performed on Tesla coils. The Geek Group has posted a bunch of videos on YouTube of their custom musical Tesla coils performing the greatest hits from Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Gargoyle's Quest, and a bunch of non-game music (theme from Beetlejuice anyone?). They've even offered an eleven minute explanation of the
sorcery science that makes it all work. A few of my favorite clips are posted below.
Super Mario Bros. (Overworld theme)
Tetris (Type A theme)
