  2. 2. Table of Contents<br />Humble Beginnings<br />Recognition<br />Interesting Facts<br />Inventions<br />Showcased invention: Tesla’s Flying Machines <br />The End of a Genius’ Life<br />References<br />2<br />
  3. 3. The Beginning<br />Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika (Austro-Hungarian Empire, region of Croatia.)<br />Studied at the Carlstadt in 1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague.<br />Specialized in physics and mathematics, but fascinated by electricity.<br /> Moved to the US on June 6 1884<br />3<br />
  4. 4. Where He Worked?<br />Telegraph company in 1880. <br />Thomas Edison in 1884. <br />Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturingin 1886.<br />4<br />
  5. 5. Recognition<br />Inventor <br />Scientist<br />Visionary<br />(2)<br />5<br />
  6. 6. Interesting Facts<br />Robert Underwood Johnson, Mark Twain, and Francis Marion Crawford<br />Although being a remarkable inventor Nikola Tesla had many limitations such as:<br />Not good with money<br />He had a germ phobia<br />He was not a business man<br />Splitting the earth directly in half like an apple<br />6<br />
  7. 7. Inventions<br />Rotating magnetic field<br />Wireless technology<br />Particle beam weapon<br />Death ray<br />Electrogravitics<br />Terrestrial stationary waves<br />Bifilar coil<br />The oscillator<br />The electric car<br />Egg of Columbus<br />The turbine<br />Alternating current<br />The Induction motor<br />Telegeodynamics<br />7<br />
  8. 8. Inventions<br />The Oscillator <br />Is a mechanical oscillator invented in 1898. <br />It is also referred to as the "Earthquake Machine." <br />Seven inches long<br />Weighing only one or two pounds<br />Purpose: To locate ships, submarines and buildings anywhere on a global scale<br />(3)<br />8<br />
  9. 9. Inventions<br />Egg of Columbus<br />In 1893, the Egg of Columbus was introduced.<br />Explains the principles of rotating magnetic field model and the induction motor.<br />A rotating magnetic field changes direction at a constant angular rate.<br />An induction motor alternating current motor where power is supplied to the rotor.<br />(4)<br />9<br />
  10. 10. Inventions<br />The Turbine<br />Also known as the bladeless centripetal flow turbine<br />Nikola patented the turbine in 1913<br />The turbine was used for steam turbines to operate automobiles<br />(5)<br />10<br />
  11. 11. Showcased Invention: Flying machines<br /><ul><li>Dream of his long life research over 20 years
  12. 12. Flying machine/airship propelled by an electric motor(without airplane engine, wings, ailerons, propellers, or an onboard fuel source)
  13. 13. To fly using an electric motor powered by ground base stations
  14. 14. Run’s electro-mechanically</li></ul>(6)<br />11<br />
  15. 15. Showcased Invention: Flying machines<br />His vision was:<br />Heavier than air, but not an airplane (“not a sporting play-thing” )<br />Substantial, solid and stable build<br />Able to move through the air in any direction safely at higher speeds, regardless of weather or downward currents <br />Remain stationary in the air even in a wind, for great length of time<br />Lifting power will not depend upon any such delicate positive mechanical action<br />12<br />
  16. 16. Showcased Invention: Flying machines<br />Powerful air currents produced by engines and compressors(light and powerful) able to lift a heavy body off the ground and propel it through the air<br />destructive invention will go through space a speed of 300miles per second<br />The plane would weigh only eight hundred pounds and could if necessary enter and depart through a window<br />13<br />
  17. 17. The END of a Genius’ life<br />Died of heart failure on 7 January 1943 (aged 86)in new Yorker hotel in New York City, USA<br />Died alone with significant debts<br />(7)<br />14<br />
