Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I bet this would impress my Physics teacher into giving me an A. And if not– *ZAP*

    Forget that, give me the “I win button” from Fallout 3. Also known as the Tesla Cannon.

    Observe: (Not my video, just searched and found it.)

    Will that stop a velociraptor? If not, I have no use for one.

    Probably the people posting before still believe Thomas Alba Edison was the greatest scientist of all times. Totally misinformed. Nicolai Tesla was. Edison was jealous of him, for he lacked Tesla superior intellect.
