A Tesla Coil Gatling Gun is the Definitive Weapon of a Mad Scientist

By Andrew Liszewski on at

YouTube’s ScienceBob somehow managed to get his hands on 315 small plastic containers that once held something called “photography film”. So he did what any mad scientist would do with such a windfall: use them to build an ethanol-powered, Tesla coil-triggered gatling gun.

The weapon won’t strike fear into anyone’s heart, but any opportunity you get to play with a Tesla coil is obviously time well spent. Besides, what else are you going to do with film canisters in the age of digital photography? [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
