The life story and work of Nikola Tesla. He invented AC electricity, Neon Lights, Radio transmission, The Electric motor, Wireless electricity transfer, Remote control, Hydraulics, Lasers, Space weapons, Robotics, and many, many more things.
Some Electromechanical devices and principles developed by Tesla:
* various devices that use rotating magnetic fields (1882)
* induction motor and high frequency alternator
* means for increasing the intensity of electrical oscillations
* alternating current long-distance electrical transmission system (1888)
Right off the side of Rt. 25A on Long Island, NY lay the remains of what was once Nikola Tesla's Wardenclyffe Tower!
The Power Station/Laboratory still stands to this day. The site is currently part of an out of business photographic development company.
Encyclopedia Britannica lists Nikola Tesla as one of the top ten most fascinating people in history. He was an electrical engineer who changed the world with the invention of the AC (alternating current) induction motor, making the universal transmission and distribution of electricity possible. So why is he virtually unknown to the general public? This rare film stars Orson Welles and features a dramatic recreation of a meeting between Nikola Tesla, Industrialist J.P. Morgan and Thomas Edison, that would decide the fate and future of today's Electric Power Industry in America and the world. But what happened to Tesla?
