Now this is cool. You have to watch the video to get the full flavor of what Joe has accomplished here. This is quite different from Hendrix smashing at guitar into the amp (which was great in its way). Joe's got something way more techy going here. Nice going, Joe.

Ozone Generator?

According to my calculations, this arc would produce ozone.  

So this could help replenish our ozone layer.  

And ozone reduces global warming.

So, rock and roll and heavy metal could be good for the environment...

Rock on!!!

I hope you are kidding. Ozone in the upper atmosphere blocks UV.  However, Ozone is poisonous, corrodes metal (very bad for electronics!) and degrades plastics.  An ozone generator in the home is not exactly an ecological triumph.

Fair enough, at outdoor rock concerts, the ozone can go directly into the upper atmosphere.  

And it is best to use your Facemelter 3000 in a well ventilated area.

Not just ozone ...

Sure, this should be a great ozone generator, but besides that it ought to be possible to listen to it from miles away on any AM receiver.  Definitely my kind of project!
