Happy 150th Birthday!

Tesla’s inventions and ideas make so many modern appliances and conveniences possible, it is impossible to list them all. Without Tesla’s innovative spark, the modern world would be a very different place. Since all our electrical energy is supplied via Tesla’s Alternating Current, and there would almost certainly be no TV, no Internet, energy saving fluorescent bulbs, or washing machines. The spark plug and coil system under the hood of you car is a direct descendant of Tesla’s work. Tesla’s work on the electronic AND gate paved the way for the computer processor. It is likely he invented the radio ahead of inventor Guglielmo Marconi. He even invented a “Death Ray” (I want one). Here is a small list of some of the patents by the forgotten genius.

PS. The Tesla legacy lives on – Fast Cars and Rock and Roll.
