Wait, is that the Tesla coil from the make magazine danger edition? By the way, did the marshmallow roast?

In spite of the voltage being in the 10s of thousands they were only moderately melted. Probably not the most efficient way to cook marshmallows but definitely the most exciting :)

That's awesome.

Did you guys happen to take a photo of the marshmallows after? I would love to see that!

Holy Cow! Now that's one of the coolest experiments I've seen on Instructables....!
