Nikola Tesla (July 10, 1856 - January 7, 1943). In 1884, a poor Serbian immigrant named Nikola Tesla arrived in the United States—at that time the land of the free....Though he was poor in this world's goods, he was rich in ideas that would eventually light up the United States . . . and the entire world. Wise men still come from the East because this Serb superman was Greek Orthodox and his father was a clergyman. While walking in Budapest Park, Hungary, Nikola Tesla had seen a vision of a functioning alternating current (AC) electric induction motor. This was one of the most revolutionary inventions in the entire history of the world.

This is the documentary film about Nikola Tesla, the scientist and inventor, one of the greatest men in history. Nikola Tesla was born on July 10,1856 in Smiljan, Lika in what later became Yugoslavia. His father, Milutin Tesla was a Serbian orthodox priest and his mother Djuka Mandic was an inventor in her own right of household appliances.
Below is a list of Tesla patents . Nikola Tesla was an inventor who obtained around 300 patents [ 2 ] worldwide for his inventions . Some of Tesla's patents are not accounted for, and various sources have discovered some that have laid hidden in patent archives. There are a minimum of 278 patents [ 2 ] issued to Tesla in 26 countries that have been accounted for. Many of Tesla's patents were in the United States , Britain , and Canada , but many other patents were approved in countries around the globe. [ 3 ] Many inventions developed by Tesla were not put into patent protection.

A plasma globe A plasma globe or plasma lamp (also called plasma ball, dome, sphere, tube or orb, depending on shape), is (usually) a clear glass orb filled with a mixture of various noble gases with a high-voltage electrode in the center of the sphere. Plasma filaments extend from the inner electrode to the outer glass insulator, giving the appearance of multiple constant beams of colored light (see corona discharge and electric glow discharge ). Plasma globes were most popular as novelty items in the 1980s. [ 1 ] The plasma lamp was invented by Nikola Tesla [ 2 ] after his experimentation with high-frequency currents in an evacuated glass tube for the purpose of studying high voltage phenomena, but the modern versions were known to be first designed by Bill Parker . [ 1 ] Tesla called this invention an inert gas discharge tube . [ 3 ] [ edit ] Description
Nikola Tesla , Serbian inventor and engineer, has appeared in popular culture as a character in books, films, comics, and video games. The lack of recognition Tesla received during his own lifetime, contrasted with his genius and obscurity has made him a tragic, mysterious, and inspirational character well suited to dramatic fiction. Tesla has particularly been seen in science fiction where his inventions are well suited, often exaggerated, but building mostly upon his own alleged claims of ideas.
The Tesla electric car anecdote refers to a supposed Tesla invention described by a Peter Savo (who claimed to be a nephew of Tesla), to one Derek Ahers on September 16, 1967. Savo said that Tesla took him to Buffalo, New York in 1931 and showed him a modified Pierce-Arrow automobile. Tesla, according to the story, had the stock gasoline engine removed and replaced with a brushless AC electric motor . The motor was said to have been run by a 'cosmic energy power receiver' consisting of a box measuring about 25 inches long by 10 inches wide by 6 inches high, containing 12 radio vacuum tubes and connected to a 6-foot-long (1.8 m) antenna .
Nikola Tesla ( Serbian Cyrillic : Никола Тесла ; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian - American [ 2 ] [ 3 ] inventor, electrical engineer , mechanical engineer , physicist , and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system.

A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891. [ 1 ] It is used to produce high- voltage , low- current , high frequency alternating-current electricity. Tesla coils can produce higher voltages than other artificial sources of high-voltage discharges, electrostatic machines . Tesla experimented with a number of different configurations consisting of two, or sometimes three, coupled resonant electric circuits . Tesla used these coils to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting , phosphorescence , x-ray generation , high frequency alternating current phenomena, electrotherapy , and the transmission of electrical energy without wires .
Introduction Welcome to the Tesla Coil Design, Construction and Operation Guide. Anyone with some electronics knowledge, free time and necessary parts can build a Tesla coil. I hope this guide will serve as a comprehensive step-by-step reference with easy-to-follow instructions covering all aspects of Tesla coil design, construction and operation. What can you learn from this guide? This page contains instructions for building traditional (not solid state) Tesla coils that can easily produce over 4 foot (1.2 meter) arcs using commonly available parts.
The tesla (symbol T ) is the SI derived unit of magnetic flux density , commonly denoted as B , (which is also known as "magnetic field").
Wireless power or wireless energy transmission is the transmission of electrical energy from a power source to an electrical load without man-made conductors . Wireless transmission is useful in cases where interconnecting wires are inconvenient, hazardous, or impossible. The problem of wireless power transmission differs from that of wireless telecommunications, such as radio. In the latter, the proportion of energy received becomes critical only if it is too low for the signal to be distinguished from the background noise . [ 1 ] With wireless power, efficiency is the more significant parameter. A large part of the energy sent out by the generating plant must arrive at the receiver or receivers to make the system economical. The most common form of wireless power transmission is carried out using direct induction followed by resonant magnetic induction .
A Teslascope is a radio transceiver that was alleged to have been invented by Nikola Tesla for the purpose of communicating with life on other planets. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] Even though Tesla talked about interplanetary communications on many occasions, it has never been confirmed that he built this particular device. [ 3 ] It is sometimes associated with the ' paranormal ' Hyperdimensional Oscillator . [ 4 ] [ edit ] Claims
Tesla's electro-mechanical oscillator or earthquake machine is a steam-powered mechanical oscillator invented by Nikola Tesla in 1898. The machine which Tesla tested was small, around seven inches (178 mm) long, and weighing one or two pounds; something "you could put in your overcoat pocket". It was reported that in 1898 Tesla's New York lab was nearly shaken to pieces by this little device, operated by five pounds of air pressure acting against a special pneumatic piston device. [ edit ] Houston Street lab Tesla established a laboratory on Houston Street in New York at 46 E.
