Awesome Tesla Coils

Billie Jean: Tesla Coil Edition

Billie Jean: Tesla Coil Edition

Franzoli Electronics is back with another high-voltage cover of a classic song. This time, his musical Tesla coils performed a version of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean. Take our strong advice and remember to always think twice before playing with this much electricity.

Thunderstruck on Tesla Coils

Franzoli Electronics rode down the highway, broke the limit, and hit the town with another electrifying performance by his Tesla coil band. This time, the high-voltage musicians added some lightning to the AC/DC classic Thunderstruck. The improved expressiveness and stereo capabilities represent a big upgrade from past Tesla coil concerts.

The World’s Hottest Candle

The World’s Hottest Candle

When is a candle not really a candle? When it’s a high-voltage plasma flame like the one shown here. James from The Action Lab shows how an ultra-high-frequency solid-state Tesla coil can produce an intensely hot flame that can’t be blown out and that can even melt steel.

Avengers on Tesla Coils

Marvel characters like Living Lightning, Electro, and Thor have the ability to control electricity. But only one of those guys is an Avenger, so we’re imagining that the tesla coils in Franzoli Electronics latest video are basically rounded versions of Mj├Âlnir shooting their lightning bolts at Captain America’s Vibranium shield.

Van Halen Meets Tesla

Van Halen Meets Tesla

Van Halen and Tesla were both rocking out stadiums in the 1980s. The latter even opened for David Lee Roth at one point. Franzoli Electronics brought VH and Tesla together for a brief performance, but in this case, we’re talking about a trio of high-voltage tesla coils playing some of Eddie Van Halen’s epic guitar riffs.

Around the World on Tesla Coils

During their 28 years together, Daft Punk used lots of synthesizers and electronic equipment to make their music. But as far as we recall, tesla coils were not in their arsenal. Thankfully, we have Franzoli Electronics, who used his high-voltage noise-makers to play an awesome cover version of Around the World.

Syringe vs. Tesla Coil

Syringe vs. Tesla Coil

Tesla coils give us one of the few controlled ways to see electricity. Apparently, if you stick a nail into a plastic syringe, point it at a live tesla coil, and pull its plunger that it would extract the electric plasma into its barrel. Original footage from ElectroBOOM.

Super Mario Bros. on Tesla Coils

Super Mario Bros. on Tesla Coils

Franzoli Electronics is back with another great musical performance on his trio of tesla coils. This time the high voltage towers zap out an energetic cover of Koji Kondo’s oft-played theme music from Super Mario Bros. More of a Zelda fan? Be sure to check out his Tesla cover of The Legend of Zelda’s theme.

Luke vs. Palpatine Tesla Coil Battle

Luke vs. Palpatine Tesla Coil Battle

The scene in Return of the Jedi where Emperor Palpatine takes on Luke Skywalker is a classic. Wayne Keenan replicated Palpatine’s Force Lightning using a tesla coil and a couple of action figures. As a bonus, he programmed the electricity to play The Imperial March.

Tesla’s Paradise

Tesla’s Paradise

Franzoli Electronics fires up their tesla coils once more with a high-voltage performance of Coolio and L.V.’s Gangsta’s Paradise. The track sounds awesome as it buzzes through the man-made lightning, reminding us not to mess with West Coast rappers unless you’re in a Faraday cage.

Seven Nation Army on Tesla Coils

With the right circuitry and engineering skills, tesla coils can be programmed to play music. Franzoli Electronics previously wowed us with their high-voltage version of Toto’s Africa. Now they’re back with a powerful cover of The White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army, replacing the thumpy garage rock sounds with a fuzzy electronic sound.
