The Terminator's Musical Box?

Frankenstein meets Jean Michel Jarre? However you classify it, seems from the video that this is one instrument you want to see "live". Hard to describe this thing except by sticking to the facts: it's a solid-state Tesla coil generating long, high-voltage sparks modulated to create musical notes.

Probably won't be featuring as a prop for a pub band near you anytime soon but I bet it will show up at some heavy metal thrash in the not too distant future.

Enjoy. I found it oddly compelling.
