Tesla - The genius who lit the world
Tesla - Man out of time
How often has one person affected humanity to such a degree that were the fruits of his labor withdrawn immediately from our day-to-day existence, the world as we know it … would essentially stop?

For a moment, we’ll take this wizard, this real-life person’s contributions to humanity away and… Everything Stops. Lights would go off around the world. Trains halt. Planes would fall from the sky.
Industries driven by motors? Silence. Cell phones? Dead. TV? Dark. Cars? Unable to start. Computers? Not without him. Radio? He was the “Father of Radio."

What about flourescent lights, neon lights, fax machines? 
Gone too. He was mucking around with them in the early 1890’s.

LIES! STOP! You just screwed up.  You made a typo.  1890’s?
No I didn’t. This person was demonstrating wireless electricity and lights at the World's Fair in 1893.

LIES! Would a picture help?
Tesla with wireless lamp
From Steve Kayser interview with MARC J. SEIFER, Ph.D. the author of the acclaimed biography WIZARD: THE LIFE & TIMES OF NIKOLA TESLA.Dr. Seifer is internationally recognized as an expert on the inventor Nikola Tesla.
You thought Roentgen rays? Not really. Not without him.

Wireless communications, wireless transmission of power?

Not without him. HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT WHO THIS PERSON IS YET? Let me give you some more of his inventions.  Radar. Robotics. Particle-beam Weapons. The original inventor of "STAR WARS" weapons.

NO WAY! Not one person. Surely not one person could bring to this earth such a diverse array of inventions over a single life span … let alone history be silent about him.

Hard to believe, but true.  There’s more.
Remote control, ozone-producing machines, bladeless turbines and pumps, reactive jet dirigible (precursor to Harrier jet), Hovercraft Flivver plane (precursor to Osprey helicopter/aircraft).
Surely we have crossed the boundary from science fiction into fantasy, right?
Wrong. We have crossed the boundary back from the systematic removal of the world’s greatest genius from the history books. And believe it or not, it was mainly because he wasn't a good businessman. He was altruistic - preferring to try to better humanity’s lot and improve living conditions for all human beings.

He created a distribution system that could deliver wireless energy anywhere on the globe. Once his financial backers learned the inventors’ true intentions, and that there was no way to meter and charge for this energy, they withdrew financial support. This crushed him. It drove him out of town, and in time, history. To that end, he was destroyed, and all have suffered since. What I mention above are just some of the remains of his contributions. He failed to patent a lot of his ideas, and he wound up simply giving them away – like the telephone speaker.

That Person’s Name?
Whose 150th birthday is being celebrated in 2006? Who counted as friends and confidants such luminaries as Mark Twain, George Westinghouse, John Jacob Astor, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, and J.P. Morgan. His name is - NIKOLA TESLA.
Nikola Tesla was born in the village of Smiljan on July 10, 1856. in Croatia (then part of Austro-Hungarian Empire). It was midnight when he came into the world, and the night sky was illuminated up by lightning, which later on became his life-long preoccupation.

The midwife commented, "He'll be a child of the storm," to which his mother replied, "No, of light."

Indeed,Tesla literally lit the world with his inventions of AC polyphase system. Tesla created first man-made lightning, producing flashes measuring 135 feet (41 metres). He also lit lamps without wires from a distance of 25 miles (40 km).

"Nature and nature's laws lay hid by night.  God said 'Let Tesla be' and all was light."
B. A. Behrend
Tesla was right in the end about so many things, it seems. Edison believed the filament bulb was the best method for generating light, while Tesla, the inventor of radio, advocated radio-frequency powered lamps and patented first plasma lamp in 1890. Tesla RF plasma lamp was reinvented in first decade of 21st century, and it is the most energy-efficient light source on the market, almost ten times more energy- efficient than Tom Edison’s incandescent bulb.

Osprey VTOL tiltrotor aircraft
Tesla's Flying Machine, that took off like a helicopter and then rotate the propeller into the airplane position,  was way ahead of its time, and obviously the precursor for modern VTOL aircraft such as the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey. It is an American multi-mission, military, tiltrotor aircraft with a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
V-22 Osprey first tiltrotor aircraft
The V-22 was completed in June 2005 and the U.S. Air Force fielded Osprey in 2009.
