The magic of the internet learned me, that today is Nikola Teslas' birthday. Like many of you my first introduction to the word Tesla comes from, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, or a cheesy rock band. Assuming you know the game, rather than the band, best defensive weapon was easily the Soviet Tesla Coil. It would rain down gobs of electricity with beautiful chaos and finesse.
Here is someone that wanted to make his own Tesla coil in his back yard and reenact a scene from Command & Conquer.
So lets celebrate Niokla Telsa with this 9 minute interesting video.
