Nikola Tesla- one of the highest minds on the earth.

  1. 1. Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. Throughout space there is energy. -- Nikola Tesla, 1892
  2. 2. • On 10 July (O.S. 28 June) 1856, a legend was born in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire (modern-day Croatia) to Milutin Tesla, a Serbian Orthodox priest and Đuka Tesla (née Mandić). The legend was named
  3. 3. NIKOLA TESLA
  4. 4. In 1882, Tesla began working for the Continental Edison Company in France, designing and making improvements to electrical equipment. In June 1884, Tesla relocated to New York City. During his trip across the Atlantic, his ticket, money, and some of his luggage were stolen, and he was nearly thrown overboard after a mutiny broke out on the ship. He arrived with only four cents in his pocket, a letter of recommendation, a few poems, and the remainder of his belongings.
  5. 5. But could the trials of time maul him down?? In 1885, Tesla claimed that he could redesign Edison's inefficient motor and generators, making an improvement in both service and economy. According to Tesla, Edison remarked, "There's fifty thousand dollars in it for you—if you can do it"
  6. 6. The world had not always been just to him…….. After months of work, Tesla fulfilled the task and inquired about payment. Edison, claiming that he was only joking, replied, "Tesla, you don't understand our American humor." Instead, Edison offered a US$10 a week raise over Tesla's US$18 per week salary; Tesla refused the offer and immediately resigned, just to land up launching his own venture, Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing in 1886.
  7. 7. He was undoubtedly persecuted by the energy power brokers of his day -- namely Thomas Edison, whom we are taught in school to revere as a genius. He was also attacked by J.P. Morgan and other "captains of industry." Upon Tesla's death on January 7th, 1943, the U.S. government moved into his lab and apartment confiscating all of his scientific research.
  8. 8. Let's take a look at what Nikola Tesla -- a man who died broke and alone -- has actually given to the world. For better or worse, with credit or without, he changed the face of the planet in ways that perhaps no man ever has.
  9. 9. Alternating current The DC current that Edison had been working on produced dangerous sparking from the required converter. Regardless, Edison and his backers utilized the general "dangers" of electric current to instill fear in Tesla's alternative: Alternating Current. Tesla responded by demonstrating that AC was perfectly safe by famously shooting current through his own body to produce light.
  10. 10. LIGHT Of course he didn't invent light itself, but he did invent how light can be harnessed and distributed. Tesla developed and used florescent bulbs in his lab some 40 years before industry "invented" them.
  11. 11. RADIO Guglielmo Marconi was initially credited, and most believe him to be the inventor of radio to this day. However, the Supreme Court overturned Marconi's patent in 1943, when it was proven that Tesla invented the radio years previous to Marconi. Radio signals are just another frequency that needs a transmitter and receiver, which Tesla also demonstrated in 1893 during a presentation before The National Electric Light Association.
  12. 12. REMOTE CONTROL This invention was a natural outcropping of radio. Patent No. 613809 was the first remote controlled model boat, demonstrated in 1898.
  13. 13. ELECTRIC MOTOR Tesla's invention of the electric motor has finally been popularized by a car brandishing his name. This invention has fundamentally changed the landscape of what we now take for granted: industrial fans, household applicances, water pumps, machine tools, power tools, disk drives, electric wristwatches and compressors.
