Nikola Tesla

From Brass Goggles

Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 - ) is one of the greatest inventors and scientists alive today. Tesla was born in the village of Smiljan near the town of Gospić, Austrian Empire. He was an ethnic Serb subject of the Austrian Empire until he moved to America. Tesla is often described as an important scientist and inventor of the modern age, a man who "sheds light over the face of Earth". He is best known for many revolutionary contributions in the field of electricity and magnetism. Tesla's patents and theoretical work form the basis of modern alternating current electric power (AC) systems, including the polyphase power distribution systems and the AC motor, with which he is helping usher in what is refered to as the "Second Industrial Revolution"

After his demonstration of wireless communication (radio) and after being the victor in the "War of Currents" by his defeat of Thomas Edison in Robotic Suit Combat, he is now known to be the greatest electrical engineer in the world. Much of his early work pioneered modern electrical engineering and many of his new discoveries are of groundbreaking importance. Tesla's fame rivals that of any other inventor or scientist in history due to his eccentric personality and his sometimes almost unbelievable and excitingly bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments. It is with his influence that mad scientists have begun to be accepted in society.

The SI unit measuring magnetic flux density or magnetic induction (commonly known as the magnetic field "B"), the tesla, has been named in his honor (at the Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures, Paris), as well as the Tesla effect of wireless energy transfer to wirelessly power electronic devices which Tesla has demonstrated on a high scale scale (Deathray) and has adapted for the intercontinental transmission of industrial energy levels in his Wardenclyffe Tower project.

Aside from his work on electromagnetism and electromechanical engineering, Tesla has contributed in great degrees to the establishment of robotics, remote control, radar and computer science, and to the expansion of ballistics, nuclear physics, and theoretical physics. The Supreme Court of the United States recently gave him due credit as the inventor of the radio. Many of his achievements have been used, with some controversy but great success, to support various mad sciences, Aether theories, and occult studies.
