DIY shock mat


Can someone please help me out with instructions for this item? Not interested in alternate methods or opinions on how cruel it is, I just need to know how to build one of these.

Good luck with that. Especially on a forum with as many professionals as this.

What is it for, a prank? You could probably use one of those shock pens and wire it to a bigger surface. I would not build something when there are plenty of things you can already buy and are designed for this. I think the key here is high voltage, little to no current. Without knowing how to properly limit current and what to limit it to, this can be deadly. Would not advise to do it.
