Dr. Megavolt

Dr. Megavolt:
High Voltage Performace Art

The Dr. Megavolt project utilizes twin 1,000,000 volt tesla coils and a specially designed Faraday suit in a performance that has appeared on television programs and perhaps most notably, at the annual Burning Man Festival in Nevada. The suit and coils were designed by Dr. Austin Richards with the support and contributions of a tight team of artists, performers, and engineers. I've been a performer, driver, builder, organizer and all sorts of other stuff over the years. I designed the Dr. Megavolt website and was a chief organizer of the first team to bring the Tesla coil and faraday suit to the desert.
