I am mezmerized
All of my want
Hah, that's pretty cool. :D
All of my confuse. (and want) But seriously I have no idea whats going on. Is the plasma/electricity making sound?
One piece of the portal we need to get to Equestria has been found! Now to find the rest!
Its not hard to build its a modulated tesla coil, You generate the high voltage spark and then modulate it via an amp.Look up on youtube 'singing tesla coil' and the group 'arc attack'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singing_Tesla_coilDon't build one if you do not have experience in high voltage electronics.
um what is it?
Yes, the spark is turned on and off about a million times a second and the duty cycle of individual pulses is modulated to cause it to emit sound. They've got the gain up a bit high, so it's distorting.
That was strangely relaxing to watch... o_O
I had to put my laptop on its side to watch that video. and i didnt even realize what it was untill half way through the video... lol
All my money.
(The guy who made it)Its a high voltage plasma arc that is modulated to about 29 thousand hertz, and then modulated further to the music I put into it.Like with Lightning, the air is split when the arc forms, which creates sound waves.So the arc being turned on and off at the frequency of the music makes sound.And you get Lighting Flootershy!
The picture of Fluttershy sleeping. HHHNNNNNGGGGGG
@GrialliaActually, not that much Ozone is produces, ozone is produced when the plasma collapses, and seeing as it is a "continuous" arc, there isnt too much of that.
@ShivalWolfIt took me 6 months of tweaking to get the circuit right, due to the abnormalities in ferrite cores and made in china electronics(...) it takes a lot of effort to get a working prototype.But i do fully agree on the "dont build one if you havent got experience" part, i can set fire to almost anything with it...
Is it playing all of the notes or just some of them? I didn't think it could replicate voice like that.
I love something! Something is my favourite!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuV4fL4YqvwHere is a 20% cooler example of a "singing tesla coil"
Cool. This reminds me of the time we saw arcattack a few years ago.
Too bad the recording is poor, because this kind of speaker usually has an awesome quality.... but don't try this at home if you don't know what you're doing. Seriously. I've set leather on fire with half this voltage (/intensity, Ohm law blah blah) once.
@Fracturedits playing all the notes, its just that because I dont have anything to remove the low frequencies, it has to play all the music at once, which plasma speakers arnt good for. So its either a rather scratchy everything or a crystal clear high-frequency tweeter with rather horrible whining for bass...
@Bobbyzeroits not playing Ponies, -20% coolness.It doesnt have a Floootershy, another -20% coolnessIts not playing an actual song, ANOTHER -20% COOLNESS
@MauranI saw a vid years ago that was a set of like 6 of them all setup for different frequency ranges. It sounds soo cool.I have almost all the parts except the coil in my electronics play time stuff (i love working with micro-controllers). I've never been able to obtain good coils for high voltage stuff.
@MauranI see your point, but the dude is dancing in lightning!
@ShivalWolfTesla coils require very precise electronics, try using a flyback transformer instead, here is a link to the circuit i based mine on;http://www.teravolt.org/sparkspeaker1.phpif u want any help or info, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org(ps, tesla coils are expensive to make...)
@BobbyzeroAsk yourself, is dancing in lightning cool, or is Dancing in the middle of school to a pony song cool?Ive tried both, and I tell you, the rush you get from the Ponies is about 20% more than when you have 250000 volts flowing through you...Id pick ponies.
Also, im sorry im spamming comments, im just fanatic about ponies and electronics and im stoked hotter than that plasma arc that I got a featured video... We are loneley down here in New Zealand...
@Mauran Don't worry, we still love you.
@MauranThis is a completely ridiculous question for such an awesome thing, but I still have to ask: What happens if you touch it while it's active?
@ZirroAhh well you see now, it takes 20miliamps across your heart to stop it. That arc is EASILY enough volts to get across your heart, but luckily it only runs at approx 10miliamps. So, all it would do, is burn you. And its fun!
@ShivalWolfwhats the worst that could happen...
now all you need is a Faraday suit and some florescent tubes and you are set. *is assuming this still works like a current and not a torch*
Is it supposed to sound like Fluttershy? Is she in the background somewhere? Was she just stuck to this post randomly?Or am I completely oblivious to something?
@Pony In ChiefIts this song(EVER SO CUTE);http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxoGmVjAsmEbeing played through a lightning bolt. Need i tell you more?
Ha that's so cool :)
@ MauranNow I know why 'fireflies' didn't sound right...
At 4:30 in this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBx2wkg9nhkSharon gives ArcAttack ten seconds to explain how lightning can make music. THEY FAIL!Rainbow Dash could've explained it in that amount of time easily.PS Mauran, Kiwi brohoof from a fellow Tesla builder!
I can't stop looking at it....Man. I want lightning speakers!!And a Fluttershy figure!!So much want!!!
plasma speakers are 20% cooler then all other speakers but I thought I hear actual Fluttershy, not fan-made song. But your speaker is cool, no doubt.
that picture... can give d'awwwabetes...
WOW...oh my gosh!!!
@MauranThe path is clear! Someone must now dance in lightning... to a pony song!
Didn't really understand it, but that was kinda cool.
Seen the picture= D'aww smile.Heard the song separately= Goofy smile.Comebine two plus mesmerizing dancing arc= Manly tears shed.
Fluttershy would never get that close to a plasma coil. 0.o
I have the strangest erection...
The picture...It looks, SO DAMN REAL!
@SmaydsHit me up an email bro! MORE HIGH VOLTAGE POWER TO EARTHemail@example.com
I built one of these some time ago. A properly built one can sound better then any speaker. The only problem is to produce any bass you need a big arc.
now if only he could play a good pony song with it...fucking hate Owl City
plasma speakers are friggin awesome.
Impressive to know this is basically thunder. Mind= Blown
@Namefag Anon it is a pony song... Its Ilysabeths's 20% cooler remix of the Fireflies parody "Fluttershy's", read the description please.
@MauranStill the same song ._.
