Musical Tesla CoilFall 2012 – Spring 2015
I was a beta tester for oneTesla, an MIT-based educational musical tesla coil startup, at MIT Splash 2012. During that weekend, only one group managed to get any sparks out of their tesla coil, and I promised myself that I would make mine work someday. Since then, I have debugged the hastily-soldered circuit a countless number of times. Equipped with an Analog Discovery USB Oscilliscope I learned how to use that fall, I finally got it working in the spring of 2015. The kit I received was pre-release, so I had to make some modifications to the interrupter to get it to work with the v.1 interrupter firmware on their website.
