Do The Mario

I think I posted something like this before, I'm not entirely sure. I know I have a similar video favorited on my YouTube Channel, but since this is a nerd's backyard, it's much more appealing. Amature electrical engineering often produces fun results, and the sound in this one is more well-defined.

Yep, you're seeing this correctly: Two Tesla Coils playing the theme to Super Mario Brothers. There are no speakers, just a fiber optic connection to a laptop running special software to have them emulate two different MIDI channels. Too much to wrap your brain around? Then just watch:
