The Nexus Tesla Coil was first built in 2005 and used in many events including Decompression, The Hatch Festival, Burning Man, Love your Mother Earth and many others.
The Galaxatron is a 33 ft powder coated dome with 5 elemental pyramids surrounding it with the Tesla Coil in the middle.
2010 was the debut for the complete Galaxatron
and although the Tesla Coil did run, it was in need of major rebuilding from the years it has been out at Burning Man, the toll the environment has taken and the new parts that need to be tuned to the coil for optimum performance. In the video below, you can see the coil running but it is making a loud unhealthy noise and the arcs are very small. After Texas, these arcs will be striking the dome, 3xfarther than in this video!
We will need to take the Coil from Montana to Houston Texas. There it will be completely refurbished, gone through with a fine tooth comb and readied for its return to Burning Man 2012!
The amount we are requesting will cover costs incurred for this to happen. It cannot return to Burning Man in its current state. We need your help to make it happen!
