Rock out to the Pacific Rim Main Theme Played by Singing Tesla Coils and a Robot

If you want to know what music will be like after the robot uprising, we've found it.

The Pacific Rim Main Theme has reached its ultimate form in being performed by a robot with singing tesla coils. We can think of no better treatment for the score of a movie about giant fighting robots than being played by a creepy robot drummer and humming Tesla coils. We also can’t think of a better way to play any music at all.

Not impressed? Why not watch a member of Arc Attack control the Tesla coils with gestures using an Xbox Kinect? It basically makes him look like some kind of super villain — and it’s also way cooler than any super villain effects we’ve seen in movies and/or trailers recently… (Yeah, we’re looking at you, Amazing Spider-Man 2.)
