Gratuitious Shocking Video: BIGGG Tesla Coil

By Evan Ackerman

This is a BIGGG tesla coil. That is in fact what it is called: the BIGGG Coil (with three “G”). It’s 15 feet tall, operates at 33,000 watts, and can toss lightning over 26 feet. Best of all, it was built from scratch in Oklahoma by Kevin Eldridge. This just goes to show that if you want it bad enough, you too can live out your Red Alert fantasies.

Yeah, we know it’s as old as the world, but maybe it’s old enough to be interesting to someone.
