Instructables

its a bit late but someone had to do it

i would just like to thank nikola tesla for all his work for humanity he was a genius and in what i have heard about him even edison couldnt hold a candle to him
he invented ac electricty(widely used today despite EDISONS FALSE CLAIMS)
                    floresent bulbs
                    a more effective of way of maufactaring light bulbs(up yours edison)
                     the electric motor 
                    romote control
                    xrays
                    robots
                     tesla turbine
                     spark plugs
                     vtol aircraft
and many more patients and god knows how many great ideas in his head

 

but sadly he died penney less alone and mad in the new yorker hotel in manhatten 
                 
and the only reason why is best idea arnt in use today is because (im not conspiracy theorist)  that the  people who are in charge bankers oil companies extra are afraid if they cant control the electricty they will lose there power and be over througn by the masses

A very nice documentary about Nikola Tesla - Master of Lightning 2000

Fluorescents ? Mm. No.
Electric Motor ? Mm No. He invented a type of AC electric motor, yes.
X-rays ??? Hardly. Roentgen was the first to discover them.
Robots - Karol Kapek is held to have introduced the idea of "mechanical men" in his play "RUR"
Tesla turbine ? Neat, but largely a novelty. The Parson turbine is more efficient, at the penaltyy of greater complexity.
Spark plugs ? A French guy invented the first electric ignition, Tesla held SOME patents, but the first successful large-scale electric ignition system was by a guy that worked for Bosch, and clearly couldn't have used Tesla's patents - Tesla would sue him.

Tesla was a brilliant engineer - for AC distribution and the induction motor alone he is one up-there in the Pantheon of greats, but he didn't invent the modern world as a lot of conspiracy nuts would have you believe.

After reading your post I finally realized that the information in the posting is not accurate. I have made the mistake to read the posting without critical thinking. Thank you for pointing that out to us. I now hang my head in shame! :)
Tesla IS one of the Greats, no two-ways about it. He provided FUNDAMENTAL knowledge to electrical and electronic engineering, but it fdoes not serve the man's memory for all the mystical crud that's sprung up about him.

fluorsents yes world columbian fair
electric motor yes and no first ac motor not first motor
xray tubes yes
robots first to relise there potential
tesla turbine he still invented it
spark plugs first to make a timing system to actully make the engine

and to top it all off wardenclyffe if jp morgon hadnt have been a dratsab all we would have to do to get electricty would stick a metal pole in ground and there we go free electricity for everyone forever
I'd give more credence to your opinion, if you spelled it correctly.

"Free electricity" eh ? So where did the energy come from ?

More Tesla fanboi woowoo.
The ironman (author)  steveastrouk2 years ago
free electricity in which i mean you dont have to pay for it and the electricity would have came from hydroelectic plants but if he would have had he had his way it would have been solar satillites which beam the energy back to earth
So you can build and maintain hydro plants for nothing, just like you can design, build and orbit "solar satellites" for nothing as well. Wow.
The ironman (author)  steveastrouk2 years ago
im not saying there for nothing im saying once they would be place and have robot maintainse system and the people who work there would be doing it out of the good of their heart and the knowledge that through the power of electricty would be in the hands of many not the few like today

Edison
Westinghouse
J.P. Morgan
and others
were thieves
and thoroughly
despicable
representations
of
humanity
and are to be reviled.

That fierce criticism of those great Barons of Industry is painted red all over. Comrade! :)
You'd go mad too if you got the same treatment, bad press, bad run of luck, and where as misunderstood as he was.

On one of their trips into space, the Space Shuttle Members, unreeled a 36 mile long wire into a higher orbit.
When they opened the switch a 200,000 volt spark occurred and burned out several of the shuttles computers.
The subsequent interview with the astronauts revealed a bug eyed crew that did not want to repeat the experiment.

Free Electricity.
Over Unity.

Collecting does not give you "over-unity", space is full of charged-particles, this is "harvesting".

Free, if you have a 36 mile cable and a shuttle.
Over unity ? Cobblers.

because in my mind there are only two people smarter than him and thats Albert Einstein and leonardo da vinci

edison is a over hyped greedy self promoting capitlist who just wanted to make money

tesla wanted world peace by making the world resourse free for everyone to use and his death ray would have been so powerful that it would be to easy for counties to destory each other making war just a waste of resoures
"his death ray would have been so powerful that it would be to easy for counties to destory each other making war just a waste of resoures "

Yup just like the invention of the Nuclear bomb has ended the need for war today and everyone in the world is living in peace..

The ironman (author)  vanweb2 years ago
a nuclear bomb creates fallout a death ray aka a lazer doesnt
Which is a huge reason that nuclear should be a bigger deterent.. but it is not..
Can you point me to where the fella said or wrote that bit about "world peace by making the world resourse free for everyone to use and his death ray would have been so powerful that it would be to easy for counties to destory each other making war just a waste of resoures"?

I agree, Tesla was a misunderstood genius that did not receive the credit that he deserved. He conceived his ideas to benefit humanity. Edison was a capitalist, a shameless self-promoter. Many of Tesla's ideas were too far ahead of his time.
And a lot of his later stuff was pure woo-woo.
That is understandable, the man suffered from obsessive compulsiveness, years before psychiatry knew how to treat it.
