For the 7th year of dorkbot SF, Greg Leyh hosts a meeting at his Lightning Lab which closes its doors in San Francisco at the end of the month (June) and moves to the East Bay.

He talks about the various research possibilities for the proposed lightning lab which will be built in Nevada. They are 2 12 story Tesla coils which can produce football-field sized arcs. There will be a visitor center. At the end of his presentation, Greg demonstrated some Tesla-roasting technique on some corn using an 11 ft Tesla coil. Videos of the Tesla Coil demonstration on the anniversary archive page here.

Video taken by dorkbot regular James Young. Q&A portions starts at about 20 minutes in. The demo followed.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
