Nikola Tesla was an inventor, mechanical engineer and electrical engineer of Serbo-Croatian origin, born in modern-day Croatia.
He is known above all for his numerous inventions in the field of electromagnetism, developed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
Tesla’s patents and their theoretical work helped forge the foundations of modern systems for the use of electric power by alternating current (AC), including the polyphase system of electrical distribution and the AC motor, which contributed to the emergence of the Second Industrial Revolution.
He is the man who electrified the world. But he did more than just that. He was the man who envisioned a world built around technology and free energy.
More than one hundred years ago, he had plans and visions of a world powered by free and clean energy.
He was the mastermind that laid the foundations of today’s technology.
Much of what we have today, from radios to self-driving cars, robotics, etc, are all technologies that Tesla worked don intensively during his lifetime. He predicted smartphones, and invented drones, and could see the future like no other inventor before.
Tesla died in his hotel room on January 7, 1943. After his death, the US government accessed and took possession of his research papers, patents, and technology.
There are even reports suggesting how Sasa Kosanovic, Tesla’s nephew witnessed how his belongings, including an unknown amount of Tesla’s personal notes, and research papers were confiscated by a mystery organization.
Luckily, most of Tesla’s Patents ( at least the ones that have not been tagged as top-secret technology by the Government) are freely available at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
But instead of going to all the trouble to look for each patent one by one, here’s an awesome pdf file with almost 500 pages filled with Patents and technologies invented by the great, one and only, Nikola Tesla.
