Proof that Tesla coils make for dapper hats

This is MIT student Tyler Christensen's Tesla coil hat, which — in the name of sheer comedy — he programmed to play the theme from Mortal Kombat (recently) and Harry Potter. Sadly, strapping a Tesla coil to one's head isn't always the best idea — the hat blew up before he could show it off on Halloween.

Pretty neat! I wonder if he can make it a little smaller though, seems like those batteries and caps might strain the neck after a while.
