Caption

Artificial lightning striking Dr Austin Richards in his home-made robot-like metal suit. The suit acts like a Faraday cage, harmlessly conducting away the electricity. The lightning was produced by a large Tesla coil (not seen), which produces high-voltage, high-frequency sparks. Photographed in Santa Barbara, California, USA.
