For this years Halloween MIT student Tyler Christensen thought he would make something a little different to wear and opted for a Tesla Coil Musical Hat.
The creation is powered by a 28V A123 battery pack and all the electronics are included in the hat along either side. Watch the video after the jump to see the Tesla Coil Musical Hat in action.
Tyler Christensen explains:
“Really, it’s just a DRSSTC. Nothing less, nothing more, nothing fancy. It was a bit tricky to make a bridge appropriately sized, and even harder to make a boost converter for it. In fact, the boost never truly worked. If I play a mid to high note for a few seconds, the boost can’t keep up and it fades away. I think this is due to saturation of my boost core”
If you fancy making your very own Tesla Coil Musical Hat all the details have been kindly published by Tyler Christensen on his website which can be viewed here.Filed Under: Design News, DIY Projects, Geeky Stuff
