Nikola Tesla: The Most Important Person You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

“The life story and work of Nikola Tesla. He invented AC electricity, Neon Lights, Radio transmission, The Electric motor, Wireless electricity transfer, Remote control, Hydraulics, Lasers, Space weapons, Robotics, and many, many more things.”

Today would have been Nikola Tesla’s birthday, and Google has put a spotlight on the work of this very brilliant, but very perculiar man. I read a book about Tesla recently, and while the book was quite awful (here’s my review of it), Tesla remains an interesting figure in history. The 10 minute video above is a good summary of his life, and it certainly shows the dark side of Thomas Edison.
