Nikola Tesla

nikola tesla quotes

Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American engineer and physicist who made dozens of breakthroughs in the production, transmission and application of electric power. Tesla is best known for invention of AC (Alternating Current) motor and his contribution in designing modern alternating current electricity supply system.

Born on 10 July 1856 in Austrian empire, Tesla conducted a number of experiments attempting to develop inventions he could patent and market, but he was never able to translate his copious inventions into long-term financial success.

Tesla’s countless experiments also includes Tesla coil, an induction coil widely used in wireless technologies. He obtained around 300 patents worldwide for his inventions. Throughout his research and experiments, he continuously faced financial problems, which later led him to go bankrupt.

At the age of 86, on January 7, 1943, he was found dead in Room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel. Nikola Tesla was no doubt one of the greatest inventors of all time, and we will be always thankful to him for his precious gifts to mankind in form of inventions.
