Many uses have been found for Nikolai Tesla's genius.

I propose another one.

Just think, it'd be pretty cool with one spinner, arcs zapping from each poi head. But if you had two or three, they'd all link up and it'd be like a lightning show!

Any theoretical physicists on HoP? Wana bash together a prototype and post the pics? biggrin

I dunno if hes ever done poi... But I heard he uses a fluoro lightbulb tube and spins it like a staff while the electricity lights it up. There are also a few other groups who do this. Should research and talk to them.

My best friend from high school makes Tesla coils.


You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

Posted:Ahahaha anyone ever remember spiderbasing and tesla coils? Yeh...that was a pain in the ass/great strategy depending who you were hehehe

C&C X sounds like *Drool*...i stopped playing after tiberian sun and before red alert two...i loved the original and red alert (with add ons) tiberian sun was pleasant but...i dunno lost a bit of the strategy...and i never got into anything after that...just call me oldschool.
Other old school real time strategies that rocked were KKND, Z (ahhhh real time strategy and drinking robots...the hilarity) but the mother of all Dark Reign...i loved that game (the sequel just sucked monkey b***s though) Any know of these little gems?
