tinyTesla Desktop Musical Tesla Coil: Electric Cutie
Last year we checked out oneTesla’s DIY Tesla coil kit for electronics experts. The students-turned-entrepreneurs are now back with tinyTesla, a smaller DIY kit aimed at middle and high school students.

Pledge at least $149 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a tinyTesla DIY kit as a reward. There’s also a $349 pledge tier for the oneTesla TS, a bigger version of the tinyTesla.
