What do you do with a tesla coil, talent, and time? Program it to play the Super Mario Bros. theme, of course. Apparently:
This is a solid-state Tesla coil. The primary runs at its resonant frequency in the 41 KHz range, and is modulated from the control unit in order to generate the tones you hear.
Though I’m not sure what that means exactly, I do know that electronic music will never be the same.
