…Antoinette J. Citizen can make you feel like Super Mario?

Super Mario Room

Antoinette J. Citizen created art that just about anyone that grew up during the Nintendo Era can appreciate: A working Level 1-1 Super Mario Bros. room complete with interactive question mark boxes and bricks that featured actual Mario sound effects.

Sadly, just being in the room did not give you an Italian brother, allow you to spit fireballs, or kill turtles by jumping on them (though I guess that last one is always possible) but it probably would make you feel pretty super.

…Tesla had tallent?

What do you do with a tesla coil, talent, and time? Program it to play the Super Mario Bros. theme, of course. Apparently:

    This is a solid-state Tesla coil. The primary runs at its resonant frequency in the 41 KHz range, and is modulated from the control unit in order to generate the tones you hear.

Though I’m not sure what that means exactly, I do know that electronic music will never be the same.
