A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891. It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. Tesla coils produce higher current than the other source of high-voltage discharges, electrostatic machines. Tesla experimented with a number of different configurations and they consist of two, or sometimes three, coupled resonant electric circuits.

Tesla coil. One day I will build one. I want one but not in my garage. Outside maybe. This is stupid. Say goodbye to your electronic ballasts in your lamp - idiot.
