Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) has been called founder of modern electrical technology. Among his creations are the channeling of alternating current, fluorescent and neon lighting, wireless telegraphy and giant turbines that harnessed the power of Niagara Falls. A man ahead of his time, he is credited as the inspiration for radio, radar, robots and even TV and the internet. He held over 700 patents. He believed that cheap, abundant energy could be made available to everyone.
