This Tesla coil car alarm system will not only save your car from being stolen, but will also cook any potential thief as if they were BBQed on site. Check out the link for pics of the construction of this beast, and be careful next time you try to jimmy the lock on someone’s ride. Of course, the giant swinging arm will probably give it away.

    I would be sure to keep all of my sub-ten-thousand volt electronics away from the car as well, you know, like the ignition, your stereo and almost anything else inside the car that causes lights to blink.

    I think you mean Van vandegraff generator don’t you? That ball on top is the collector for the electrons that build up from an extractor on a woolen or rubber belt running inside the vertical shaft. A Tesla coil is far more dangerous and has no such ball on top.

    The science center, where I used to work had a 100k volt vandegraff that you could box with. ;) left some nasty welts but totally safe.
