MishoM Posted November 29, 2008 Share Posted November 29, 2008 Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was a Serbian inventor and is pretty much the reason you can view TGTAP today. Oddly enough, no one knows of the Serb or his contributions to humanity-- which are unmatched to this day. Tesla invented AC electricity, wireless electricity, the remote control, cellular technology, the radio, the electric motor, the generator (basically motor), X-rays, neon lighting, the Tesla coil (transformer), basic radar and laser technology, robotics, and "Star Wars tactical warfare." Tesla wasn't in it for the money, Tesla was someone who wanted electricity to be free for all, but in capitalist America, he of course couldn't get that and was considered "a threat to the world energy economy." The Serb was screwed over by the likes of Thomas Edison, who's company was going to go bankrupt, so he made promises to Tesla, Tesla improved everything, and he then fired him saying he doesn't "understand how American business men work." So who's heard of Tesla? I've been meaning to make this topic to talk about his contributions and inform people of what he did but never got around to it. A nice video can be found here about him as well. He was also played by David Bowie in the movie the Prestige. Let's talk about Tesla!
