Did I ever tell you about how I was the first person on all of facebook to like MITERS?

Tesla Coil 2 lives again!

Lots of people are building Tesla Coils at Miters over the past year, so I was inspired to get my old Tesla Coil 2 out again! It was unfortunately in poor shape and very dusty so I cleaned it up and replaced some parts. I’m now happy to say that Tesla Coil 2 is now back with a new finish and excellent performance!

Photos of the new construction:

And a photo of the coil in action!

Could this possibly still be the biggest homemade Tesla Coil in Singapore?

For construction details all the way back from 2004, as well as other projects, please visit my website documenting this build at www.loneoceans.com/labs/teslacoil2/.

Have a great summer!

Last week, a few members of the Georgia Tech Invention Studio (a.k.a Bizarro World MITERS) came to visit MIT and to cross-spread the love good word engineering lunacy. This is the result.

Come inspire us with cool projects :) Our semesterly showcase / open house is today:

MITERS End of Every Term Research Showcase is Friday (today!) starting at 6pm and running until 10 (people will be there until dawn, of course).

Hosted by the MIT Electronics Research Society (MITERS)
Friday *Dec 16th, 6-10pm*, at MITERS *N52-115* (by the MIT Museum)
- google maps: http://tinyurl.com/6om8578 || phone: (617) 253-2060

What is it?
- – you bring *cool projects *you made this term
- – you look at other cool projects that other people made this term
- – you make new friends (if you want to)
- – you eat* free* *food*!!!

6 to 7 ~ Meet people / order food
7 to 9 ~ Lightning talks. five to fifteen minutes by each maker about what
they’re working on
9 to 9.5 ~ Dinner / talk to people
9.5 to 10 ~ Reconvene, ask any questions relevant to everyone
10 ~ Group photo

This year MEETERS will include projects such as musical tesla coils / hat
coil, induction heater, bike generators, giant and medium and small
quadrotors/tricopters, hexarideablepod and hexawalkingpod, segboard,
direct-to-pcb-laserprinter, diy motors (transverse? hub? BIG?), scooters.
Some of these will even be working nonlethal demos!

MITERS is a student-run maker space where members of the MIT community are
invited to come and make awesome things. Come check out all these awesome
projects and get some ideas flowing for a project of your own!

What is MITERS? Watch the documentary about us:


If your project has special requirements, or you can be bothered to RSVP,
please let people know via the list miters-keyholders at the obivous, our-friendly-institvte.edu. Thanks!

*including nyancake and nyantarts, of course. Nyanjello might appear too…

** impromptu talks may happen after 10 pm, if lots of people are interested
in something (how to etch circuits? how to use arduinos?).

Debates about the relationship between makerspaces and startups, open
source hardware / software business models and case studies, internet noise
and the optimal level of documentation, will happen if I’m still alive.
