I happen to have a small tesla coil , it uses about a 2in circuit board and a min. of 12v input. I wanna take out the jewel xbox in da middle and replace it with an electric storm by the tesla coil. then elevate the jewel and use 1 of these:

Basicly i can have this assembled very qucik, but my concerns are:

1- Will i Have enough voltage input?
2- Will the high voltage effect my xbox parts

If you are wondering how i would mnake the electrical stom, i would simple use pieces of metel and the voltage would jump.

well considering telsla coils can be haserdous to your xbox and people i wouldent but it in. and secondlty telsla coils dont do anything without a lightning rod or a ground close to it. telsla coils creat an electromagnetic field the bigger the coil the bigger the field and a average telsla coil puts out about 10 000 volts but very little amprage.

my question to you is do you have a telsla coil or a ball thing that looks like a lightning storm that you pick up at radio shack because if its the radioshack one its safe to use near the xbox. (at your own risk of coarse)

yes i have a real tesla coil, i'll get some pics of what I plan on doing... The tesla coil is going to be in an encloed area so it is safe. The output is not 1,000v's its less.

Tesla coils can throw out 250K volts or more. Not all do. It depends on the one you're building. Honeslty I would hope that anyone who builds a Tesla coil would know what it is capable of.....(Hurting electronic devices like your HD). I wouldn't fire a Tesla coil up in the room with my Xbox let alone with it strapped to it.

You know what a bad idea is?
(See Post One)

The breakpoint for the tesla coil would most likely be the base it's resting on.

The base would then be a seven-pound chuck of fried black plastic, with the sweet, sweet smell of crispy M$ goodness.

Besides, tesla coils (if in fact you have a real one, not one of those thingies you touch and "lightning reaches for you") ARE dangerous. Enclosed or not.

I'm gunna have to agree with Power on this one. except that it will have a ground. The box. To which a controller would be connected. To which you would connected. Think about it.

If the maker of a tesla coil has to ask questions regarding voltage and its effects...

Think it'll be made right? smile.gif

Even if I made it, and was sure it was right... I don't think I would want it on an xbox.
