Info

Austin Richards of Santa Barbara, CA, is zapped by his homemade Tesla Coil. Richards wears a homemade robot outfit with a birdcage covering his head. The electrical "lightning" bolts his Tesla coil zaps him with do not do any harm because he is surrounded by metal that acts a Faraday cage, harmlessly channeling the charges to the ground and protecting his body from shocks. Richards performs these stunts for trade shows and parties. Here he is doing this for a block party near Santa Barbara. California, USA
