The Forgotten Genius

The Forgotten Genius

Scientist, physicist, engineer, inventor, none of these words describe sufficiency the life of Nikola Tesla. Maybe genius only can minimally describe the life of this man. He had fascinating mental abilities which allowed him to elaborate in his mind complex electrical machines and build them without taking any notes.

Nikola Tesla was a visionary that changed the history of humanity with his inventions. Tesla's vision was always ahead of his contemporaries; he imagined already two centuries ago, a world where people could communicate with radio waves, illuminate cities without using wires.

Free Energy

Nikola Tesla suggested the use of the earth energy to feed human activities, leading consequently to a world less dependent on fossil fuels and with fewer wars.
