Make Your Own Tesla Coil At Home That Will Light Up Bulbs In Air

This is one of those articles you just have to see just so you can figure out how they did that! Nikola Tesla was a genius and way ahead of his time. People called him crazy, and there are even conspiracy theories that he was killed for "knowing too much". He invented many things we still use today and things that are still being developed because he didn't finish them in his time. He would be proud to know that one of his most amazing inventions the Tesla Coil, is now able to be made at home by people like you and me!

This article on Wonderful Engineering shows us through a video how to devise one of these Tesla Coils with a few things that you should be able to find at your local hardware store. Although the video happens to be in Spanish, the step by step instructions are very easy to follow and the guy in the video goes very slowly to show you exactly how to do each step. It seems like magic to see a light bulb being lit up just by being close to this coil! Tesla's vision was to have a coil like this big enough to power cities and towns and that we would only need a small number of them erected to produce enough electricity for all. His ingenious designs were thought to be too far out at his time, so they were not used.

It's awesome that people are taking his designs and making things from them, like this, the Tesla car, a possible mobile home run on the same technology are the car. Its all paving the way for more easily attainable electricity - free electricity for every one! Think of the amazing benefits of this!
