Tesla Coil Hat crackles with the power of geek ingenuity

The costume craziness of Halloween is long gone but one get-up that still deserves honorable mention involves a dual resonant solid state Tesla coil and the ultimate display of alpha male geekery.

MIT student Tyler Christensen details how he constructed the Tesla coil hat, but we advise that you don't undertake anything like this unless you've got the requisite lab skills to match. As long as we have these kinds of insanely weird tinkerers around, we don't have to worry about where the next Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak will come from. You can see video of the Tesla Coil Hat crackling with nerd energy to the beat of the "Mortal Kombat video game movie theme in the video below.
