Our key objective is to produce a controllable discharge of lightning at the greatest physical scale imaginable using modern technology. One of the projects is a 110,000 Volt Taser Cannon. The Taser Cannon can direct a 15,000 Ampere plasma channel through the air along a straight trajectory, at grounded targets up to 35 ft downrange. Link.

    It would be much more interesting if ANY of the links worked on the destination pages.
    This could be 100% fake for all we can read about it.
    I love the quote "The capacitor bank is currently disassembled..."
    Sounds like a guy I knew who calimed to have built a nuclear powered motorcycle, but then, when we asked to see it said "Well, I took it apart"
    There are PLENTY of real maker projects you could post about, how about some of them?
