This Tesla Coil Gun Is Straight out of a Video Game

There aren’t many cooler things than a tesla coil. What is cooler than seeing sparks of electricity fly out like tiny bolts of lightning? Nothing. It looks so damn cool. Even if it can be dangerous.

Destin of Smarter Every Day’s latest video is all about the fantastic assortment of tesla coils his neighbor Cameron Prince has in his collection. The pièce de résistance? A tesla coil gun. It looks like something out of an FPS when it’s fired, but it is completely real. They captured the gun firing at 28,000 fps so you can see all of the crazy details in glorious slow motion. And it is pretty much like watching lightning in slow motion, except that this lightning is coming from a gun.

Interestingly, you can get hit when the secondary coil arcs back at the shooter and the current is so low that it does not kill either Destin or Cameron. But still, don’t try this at home.
