Now You're Thinking with Tesla Coils!

Seeing as how I posted some music on my birthday last year, I feel it would be only appropriate to do so again this year. And seeing how I talked about Portal and Portal 2 yesterday, it would be even more appropriate for me to show you this absolutely amazing video I just came across of one of the songs from Portal 2 played on Tesla coils. Yes, Tesla coils.

Just go watch it already.

This is simultaneously one of the coolest and most beautiful things I have ever been privileged to experience. I'm not ashamed to say that it's brining tears of joy to my eyes. Though to fully understand the significance of the song (“Cara Mia Addio”), you really need to have played Portal 2.

Finding this video was really a wonderful birthday present. Oh, almost forgot, I'm 23 today.


  1. happy birthday, Dan! Enjoy all the youtube videos on sciency equipments playing portal music!

  2. Happy Birthday from Mom! OK, OK, I give. I'll play Portal this summer when you're home! :-0

  3. Happy belated birthday! What a fun video!
