This guy in Australia has done a heck of a lot of work making a real life Tesla Coil! Granted, they don't work in real life like they do in a game, but with a couple of enhancements, he was able to create a magnificent photo of a lifesized teslacoil zapping people.
Now read this carefully. 1 This is a single photo from a Nikon D70s digital camera and is a 17 second exposure of a real functioning Tesla coil and is the result of perhaps 100 hours of preparation. It is completely untouched. It is not, repeat not, photoshopped. It does however achieve the result using special effects which I will explain. 2 A real Tesla coil cannot make ultralong sparks and it can't direct them specifically to a point (like the enemy). This is not a real weapon.

Just as I posted this, I became aware of Another Tesla Coil! Not meant to look like RA2, these Double Tesla Coils are hooked up to a laptop and actually play Super Mario Brothers music. Seriously, you've got to take a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1O2jcfOylU
