    Motor also invented by Nikola
    Speeds up to 90 Mph (September 16, 1967)
    Death Ray (Ray Gun) - theoretical particle beam or electromagnetic weapon
    Wireless communication - transfer of information over a distance without the use of enhanced electrical conductors, wires
  • Tesla Coil
    a type of resonant transformer circuit
    It is used to produce high voltage
    Tesla used these coils to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting, x-rays, electrotherapy, and Wireless energy transfer
