WHO WAS NIKOLA TESLA?
“The Future belongs to me”
Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) this neraly forgotten genius, is referred to as “the Greatest Inventor of all Time”, “Wizard of Electricity” and “Ruler of the World”.
An ethnic Serb born in the remote village of Smiljan (in present day Croatia’s mountainous Northern Dalmatia region). He was a subject of the Austrian Empire by birth, before becoming an American citizen at age 35. Tesla invented radio (credited to Marconi), X-rays (credited to Roentgen), the rotating magnetic field, the basis of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system (which change the way we use energy), remote control, basics behind radar, electron microscope, computer technology, etc.
On top of all Tesla designed the first hydro-electric power plant in Niagara Falls. He was inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist.
Tesla dreamed of a better world – a world without famine and misery – and worked toward a Wireless World System – transmission of electrical energy as a solution for world energy crisis (note: more than 100 years ago!). Tesla’s vision: freely available and free energy for everyone – an “entirely new and unsuspected [energy] source” from the ether (aether).
