ArcAttack graced us with their musical Tesla coils —and an entertaining interview —at last year’s Gizmodo Gallery . And as impressed as we were with their performance then, I’m downright giddy that they’ve added the Dr. Who theme to their repertoire.

You can call him black magician or Nostradamus reincarnated, but Nikola Tesla was “just” a genius. Such a visionary that he predicted cellphones back in 1909, during a New York Times interview. [ Popular Mechanics via Telegraph via Recombu ] More

This was Nikola Tesla ‘s letterhead. It reminded us that along with the often overlooked little things which change our lives , we need the loud, filthy, slaughter-filled battles just as much. Like the dirty War of the Currents . Just in case you’re not familiar with the War of Currents—one of my favorite messes in the history of electricity—allow me to catch you up
Art is great, sure. But art made from bolts of electricity fired from tesla coils

Speaking at the Wired Business Conference in NYC, Shai Agassi , the founder of green transportation company Better Place , made a bold statement about near-future electric cars: From WiredBiz’s twitter feed : A sub $10,000, zero-emissions car will be the most desirable consumer electronics device in history.

Would a Sub $10,000 Zero-Emissions Car Be The Greatest Consumer Gadget Ever? [Blockquote]
If you have a thing for Tesla coils (and who doesn’t really) you will be interested in this experiment/history lesson about wireless power put on by Omega Recoil at this year’s Maker Faire. During the presentation, they provide some background on Nikola Tesla’s experiments and attempt to recreate them by powering a light bulb wirelessly at various distances.

Recreating Tesla’s Wireless Power Experiments [Tesla]
Scientists at the University of Waterloo have designed a lithium-sulfur battery that, thanks to nanotechnology, is capable of 3 times the power of lithium-ion batteries with equal volume while remaining both lighter and cheaper to produce. Long-distance electric cars , anyone? The different atomic structure of the battery and knowledge of nanotechnology are what make this battery different.
