Hailing from Austin, Texas, electronic rock band ArcAttack performed daily at the Gizmodo Gallery with their singing tesla coils and robotic drummer. With some modifications to their home-made telsa coils which are explained in the video, not only can they produce lightening, but sound as well--how badass is that! A little dangerous yes, however so far, so good. They've performed over 300 live shows without incident, although they once tackled a cop to save him when the police shut down a rave, and the kid exhibiting next to ArcAttack had his wi-fi card fried the first day the gallery opened.
Like many electronic musicians, they craved the authentic live sound that only comes from a real drum kit. 2 months after one of those parties where you talk at length about such things, their friend turned up with a working robotic drum kit. He'd spent 15 years building animatronics for Disney and was able to make the whole thing out of spare parts in garage.
