A guitar has finally produced lightning. Rock and Roll is now officially dead.
zatojones - 2008-02-13
Fuck no it ain't. This is a sign that rock still lives

Dicknuts - 2008-02-13
Dead.

Anti-Pope - 2008-02-13
Rock is Dead! Long Live Metal!

StanleyPain - 2008-02-13
That's pretty metal.

And brutal.


But it could use some zazz.

Recently, our local news morning show celebrated Edison's birthday by having the resident "goofy guy" play around with a Tesla coil.
I think for Darwin's birthday they're planning a reading of "Of Pandas and People."

Were they trying for irony?

Did they then immediately run all the Jews out of town?

Dethklok needs to be informed.

I was about to say, this is REAL LIFE DETHKLOK STUFF, right here. Just make a Tesla coil about 30 times the size of the one in the video and voila.

Now if only someone would hook a Tesla coil up to a Theramin... OHHHH SHIIIIIT.

Old_Zircon - 2008-02-15
Unfortunately, that's the second-largest solid-state Tesla coil ever built, so no giant, arena-rock Tesla amps for now.

If I'd had access to this technology in high school, there would be areas of Pennsylvania that would still be uninhabitable.

I did, and they are.

dr_rock is from silent hill? are you still haunted by the memories of your dead wife?

I cannot give this enough stars.
EvilHomer - 2008-02-13
Eveyone who gives this less than 5 stars is dead to me. Unless you justify deducting one star because the kid missed an obvious chance to play a few covers off Ride the Lightning.

Beat me to the Ride the Lightning reference. Good show, sir.

Keefu - 2008-02-13
Mass produce this please.
Old_Zircon - 2008-02-15
Someone already does mass-market them (kind of):

You can get much better sound quality (at much lower volumes) with the amplitude modulation method:

Zeusaphone? FUCK YES.

IrishWhiskey - 2008-02-14
Just needs to improve the sound quality a little, and we have reached the next logical evolution of Rock.
kingarthur - 2008-02-14
Then its just a matter of being able to make it shoot FIRE.

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-07-01
I am looking forward to an arena-rock version of this thing, shooting lightningbolts 20M high, with pyrotechnics blazing like some Wrassler's entrance theme, and the non-stop scream of the crowd, so loud you go deaf for a week, and hear ringing for a month.

METAL!!!

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-07-01
The Ęsir Gods would be so proud.
