i'm a programmer/musician who has played around with MIDI for a while. i'm looking forward to the oneTesla for many reasons; but it seems to be an curious intersection of art and science that just grabs me.

Hi Everyone!

My name is Gary and my friends think I'm crazy for backing this Kickstarter project. They think I'm going to blow myself up, burn my house down, kill all my electronics, etc.. which I guess are all possibilities with this type of device but what do they know.. right :)

I'm not a musician so I'm glad that the interrupter has been updated to work standalone without MIDI input. I'm more of a science / electronics guy that has thought about building a high voltage device like a Tesla-Coil or a Jacob's Ladder for a while but never got around to sourcing all the parts so the oneTesla is a perfect solution for me.

I can't wait to start building it!

I'm a researcher and lecturer at a Swedish university, with a background in physics and electronics, but now focusing on computer graphics and special effects. I have had plans for building a Tesla coil myself, using some of the many helpful suggestions on the Internet, but I never actually got around to it because of big problems with sourcing the components. The OneTesla DIY kit is the perfect toy for a 47 year old kid like me. I hope it will arrive in time for my birthday in May. Yes, I'll be careful. Promise. (Muhahaha. And they said I was crazy. I'll show them!)

I am looking forward to having the One Tesla Coil. I am an instructor in a trades program, currently teaching Electrical and Electronics.

Hi all,
I saw this on kickstarter and couldn't resist - I'm hoping that I can get set up with minimal problems - but we'll see.
I'm sure it will be worth the effot regardless :)

Hello everyone!

I'm a generic try-to-make-it-all hobbyist, but earn a living in programming.
Made several spark-gap tesla coils before, and was looking to make a DRSSTC, but so far always got lost in the schematics and unobtanium IGBTs. OneTesla is just the kind of project i was looking for - simple enough to understand, and yet powerful enough to be interesting.
