For tonight's fun I did just a little more coloured steel wool twirling...
That's me in the middle.
No photoshopping. This is just how the camera sees it. Can you work out how this was done.

Imaginative comments required.

The dust is slowly settling from my Open day and after 2 days have put away around 3/4 of my 60 displays.

First light (and sound) from my newly arrived DRSSTC electronic musical Tesla coil.  Tested here with a midi keyboard.  Capable of 4 foot sparks standard from this 3 foot tall coil. Just in time for the Open day. For full testing tomorrow. 
There is a second one coming soon too.

did you soak the steel wool in various compound solutions.  Like copper sulphate etc

This is NOT 2 million volts. 2 MV will spark 2 yards. You can't compress that into a smaller volume. This is maybe 50,000 volts but probably less.
Lightning is between 10 - 100 MV by comparison.

A little article on our local TV station.
Based originally on some footage of my Open day but mostly shot the following day with interviews.
Laughed our way through lots of jokes and outtakes but I look pretty serious in the shots they kept.
I was really pleased with the big TC footage with HD video on my Nikon SLR camera taken a few months ago.
This was the second take of Rebecca drawing sparks on to her hand. She jumped so much the first time she left the video screen completely.

The Open day will without doubt be the biggest and most spectacular Tesla coil show in Western Australia ever. Possibly Australia.
I will have 4 running Tesla coils including a musical one playing original music written for it. Also a very large one, one for pool stunts and a small interactive one.
And the Tesla coils only account for perhaps half the show.
The stunts have been seen on TV by nearly 3 million people world wide this year alone with 2 other programs yet to air. 
The night will be covered by the local press who have already done a pre-shoot.
The Physics Dept who took up their limited places and will do a display down here as well.

I’m just curious about complete lack of interest from the otherwise active local Tesla Forum. Strange.
