Tesla Guitar Suit

Make some noise.

PopSci explains:

Atonal sound aside, this electric guitar and Tesla coil are a match made in heaven. The guitar can be hooked up to the coil because both rely on the principal of “electromagnetic induction.” It’s like this: when a changing magnetic field passes inside a closed loop of conducting material like wire, an induced electric current will flow in the wire. Instead of the energy coming from a battery it comes from the magnetic field. (This is how a generator operates. You spin a coil of wire inside some magnets, and the constantly changing field within the coil results in an electric current.) The guitar and coil each employ electromagnetism; pair them up and the sparks fly.
