I just came in my pants.

http://ep.espacenet.com has PDFs of patents from a shitload of countries. They have a search database consisting of the patent abstract and applicants going back to the beginning of the last (20th) century. That's further back than the USPTO patent server ( http://www.uspto.gov/patft ) goes with its search database. I've been looking at various Tesla patents written in Serbian I think. A good lot of them are for mechanical things as he was not only an electrical engineer but also a great mechanical engineer.

Oh shit that's cool. Building a mini Tesla coil would be so cool and scare the neighbors.

Terrorist? Hahahaha. It would just be cool, to have at shows really. Great stage prop. I wonder what the power consumption is like for a mini-tesla coil. I'm sure there are plans and supplies available online.

Remember, you'll know that you're too close to it when you'll start feeling heat behind your eyeballs but then it will already be too late.

Hahahahahaha. Too bad that never happened to the band Tesla.
