( 1856 – 1943 )
Nikola was a Serbian American inventor and futurist that is best known for his contributions to the design of Alternating Current (AC). He was visionary and a lot of his research achievements were so complex, We still can’t figure out today. Here is an example: In 1898 he Demonstrated a radio controlled boat that he tried to sell to the military a a radio controlled torpedo, and they showed no interest at all, imagine that. So far ahead of his time, and since the all powerful Thomas Edison wasn’t exactly his best friend, his works are largely forgotten today. There has however, been a recent renewed(and much belated) interest in his research.
Read about all of the things he was into, it’s like science fiction…..
His ashes are on permanent display in Belgrade, Serbia, at the Tesla Museum, along with his death Mask.
