I'm sitting in a Faraday cage getting hit with 4 million volts!!!
Is that at Mindport?
I would be very impressed if you were standing there without the cage! Of coarse you would be crunchy and a little bit dead.
Actually that would be cool and I would think a bit scary!
It's at SPARK (formerly the Museum of Radio and Electricity). It was insane. And LOUD!
It was pretty intimidating. It was also majorly fun.
Hmmm...I recall doing that in B'ham, but I don't remember going to a place called SPARK or Museum of Radio and Electricity. The Faraday must've effected my memory. :tongue:

Or... you could be The Flash
Pacemaker field testing? I am old and very impressed.
Meanwhile in New Jersey, USA just another day at the office.[ame=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA9oBEHRLqQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player]AMERICA REVEALED | Live Wire | PBS - YouTube[/ame]
Oh man, missed photo op from inside the cage! Please share that photo!
While it can take a whopping high voltage to get that arc going the current levels can be embarrassingly low (not like the live wire segment - that's just death waiting). One can gauge how much current is flowing by the strength of the odor from the ozone generated - ozone has a very distinctive smell. I guess you do have to spend some time 'calibrating' your nose ...
