Nikola Tesla

 

Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943) is the inventor of the modern alternating current system, radio, remote control, the first hydro-electric power plant at Niagra Falls, the Tesla Coil, and what he called his “best invention” in his autobiography: the wireless transmission of energy around the globe. These are only some of the highlights of the 700+ patents he held.

Despite these mind-boggling and visionary inventions, you usually do not read much about him in university text books, which has been one of the main motivations for starting this website.
