Crowdfunded Tesla tower project seeks to recreate inventor's wireless energy transmission system By many accounts, the iconic inventor Nikola Tesla was years ahead of his time. His ideas for a worldwide wireless communications system, and a wireless energy transmission technology, never got the traction they perhaps may have deserved during his lifetime, and but now, over a century later, two scientists are retracing his steps and plan to build a prototype of his Wardenclyffe tower using modern materials and advanced electronics.

Like the emperor’s new clothes, they have made a popular culture of the sacred invisible, and are selling it to the highest bidder.
