Students spend two years building a 10-foot Tesla coil that shoots sparks to the Super Mario Bros.

TNW: ''Engineers from the student-run organization X-Labs at the University of South Florida (USF) recently finished building a 10-foot tall dual-resonant solid-state Tesla coil. The electrical transformer circuit is capable of producing alternating-current electricity, and for our entertainment, shoots sparks between 10 and 15 feet to the tune of the Super Mario Bros. theme song.'' (Culture, Nintendo, X-labs)
