High Voltage Keyboard

Posted December 12, 2014 by Chris

"This ‘musical keyboard’ uses flyback transformers to create an audio modulated high voltage arc discharge. Each key controls a driver board. When activated, the key applies power to a high voltage transformer. The transformer makes an arc, which is modulated at a set frequency. This frequency produces audio."
