  5. 5. Tesla Coil<br />a type of resonant transformer circuit<br />It is used to produce high voltage<br />Tesla used these coils to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting, x-rays, electrotherapy, and Wireless energy transfer<br />http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/27/Maker_Faire_2008_Tesla_Coil.ogg<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Edison vs. Tesla<br />Became rivals because the invention of Tesla’s DC, Direct current, and Edison’s AC, Alternating current<br />Edison wanted to make people pay to use AC rather than Tesla giving free DC.<br />Edison wanted to prove that DC was harmful so he shocked an innocent elephant to prove that DC was dangerous.<br />And of course people picked<br /> Edison over Tesla. <br />
