Arc Attack's tesla coils rock SXSW

At Dorkbot in Austin, Texas, on Saturday, the local group had its singing tesla coils turned up loud, thrilling the crowd that came for a celebration of science and geekery.

AUSTIN, Texas--If you wanted to see tesla coils rocking out, Dorkbot was the place to be Saturday evening at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference here.

The local art collective Arc Attack had its singing tesla coils turned up loud and it put on several demonstrations of its machines at this celebration of "people doing strange things with electricity."

The highlight of the group's show was either a rendition of the "Dr. Who" theme or perhaps the Imperial march music from "Star Wars" (see video below--and give it a few seconds to get past the head sticking up in front of the lens).
