I.T. company ioSafe set up the ultimate test for their new Thunderbolt portable hard disk with help from Austin Richards (aka Dr. Megavolt) and his one million-volt Tesla coil. Austin, wearing a suit eerily similar to Terry Blake's Dr. Zeus suit, holds the drive while it takes direct hits from the coil. Spectators look on in excitement from a Faraday cage near the coil. Austin also performs wood burning and other demonstrations with the coil.

I saw this the other day. Is this a gimmick? Is it really the hard drive or is it because it has a metal case?
