Tesla Coils aren't just for games anymore

This photo of a medium size Tesla Coil reminds me of my favorite series of games: Command and Conquer. The Tesla Coil was one of the best defensive weapons in the game, and just the sound of it charging was enough to send troops into retreat.

This model uses 450,000 watts for a 30 second charge, and the arc is easily strong enough to kill anything caught in its path. I think I would have put it a little closer to the street. You can view more Tesla Coil photos in this photostream.

Now if only someone would design the Advanced Guard Tower...
