What is a Teslathon?
A Teslathon is an informal meeting of people interested in building high-voltage equipment, teslacoils, multipliers, van de graff’s, wimshurst machines, violet ray machines, induction coils, and the opportunity to bring, test, experiment, demonstrate and view any of the equipment that other exhibitors have brought.
Teslathons are highly experimental, with technologists often pushing their equipment to breaking point in search of spectacular electrostatic discharges.
So expect the unexpected: indeed, look out for a guest appearance by Nikola Tesla (in costume!) and updates throughout the weekend on social media:
