how can i hook a keyboard to a solid state tesla coil? Answered

i want to build a solid state tesla coil and hook a keyboard up to it. how can i do this?


If you're trying to reproduce the musical tesla coils, I _think_ what they did was modulate the input to the coil. I'm sure that if you contact the folks who built those they'd be glad to enthuse about what was involved.

It's either the musical tesla coil or the world's meanest practical joke....

Or the worlds weirdest assassination device.

"Press any key ... to DIE"

It'll only work if the tesla coil has a PS/2 port.

Look at the "plasma-speaker" Instructables, feed the audio-out into one of them.


what do you want it to do?
