"My brain is only a receiver; in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration." — N. Tesla
Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 during a lightning storm, a prelude to his life-long relation with electricity. He had a powerful mind, always focused on new and more incredible inventions. His career launched when he moved to New York to work in the company of Thomas Edison as electrical engineer.
Tesla proposed the use of alternating current to transport electricity. Building on this idea, he also invented the induction motor and devised a way to transform the power of the Niagara falls into electricity, making the first step towards renewable energies.
His dream was to invent a wireless system to transfer energy, to connect the entire world. With that in mind, he created the Tesla coil and came up with many other innovative ideas, which were ahead of his time and set the basis for our society. Today, we use his alternating current to transport energy to every house, and we are all connected through wireless electromagnetic transmissions, just like he had envisioned over a hundred years ago.
