One of the hands-down crowd favorites at this year’s Bay Area Faire was Arc Attack, a pair of musical Tesla coils, accompanied by a human band, and lots of twisting, branching arcs of half-a-million volts of electricity that the show’s MC orchestrates from within a Faraday suit. In other words, wholesome family entertainment, Maker Faire style!

Here’s a short video of a performance, captured by fairgoer LukeTheObscure.
