Caption: Tesla coil. Artificial lightning from a large Tesla coil strikes Dr Austin Richards in his home-made robot-like metal suit. The suit acts like a Faraday cage, harmlessly conducting away the electricity. The coil consists of an induction coil which feeds a transformer through two capacitors. The coil produces high-voltage, high-frequency sparks. Photographed in Santa Barbara, California, USA.
