    Looks like it could also electrocute you as well.

    Umm Holy Crap i wanna do that, i would destroy hundreds of cds before that became uncool

    That was awesome! Gives me an idea: I've got a transformer out of an old neon sign (about 70,000 volts, I think) I'm going to try and do this with that, although I'm not sure how well it will work, being the resistance across the cd platter might be too high … if I catch the garage on fire, I'll post pics on theChive! 😉

    • Nazz1962

      oops, my bad – it's only 7500V

      • blah

        please let us know how it works. I have a franceformer also and want to try

        • Nazz1962

          I tried to make a version of my own using a CD player motor and a neon sign transformer – not as impressive at all 😦 My 7500VAC transformer doesn't provide enough power to continue zapping the foil off the disk as the disk spins 😦

    lol cool, but that does more than erase a CD, that completely gets rid of the recording surface. Your erasing the CD and making it useless

  • Cody Symes

    Mind… Blown…

  • @rjmcke

    Didn't that just burn off all of the foil from the CD? Isn't the data etched on the other side of the disk from the foil? From what I know the foil is only used to reflect the laser. So isn't the data still there unless the heat from the electricity burned that off as well?
