Thanks to Tesla

One of the greatest scientists and inventors that has ever lived, Nikola Tesla has made many remarkable discoveries that have advanced the human race. He is best known for the invention of the Tesla coil and alternating current (AC) electricity. But, there are many other reasons why we should all be thankful for this genius. His contributions are part what we us on a daily basis – X-ray, radio, remote control and the light bulb to name a few. With much of his work underappreciated, it is our mission to carry on his legacy giving him the recognition he deserves.

Thanks to Tesla: Inventions that Help Humanity

Every day, we benefit from technology developed by Nikola Tesla. Thanks to Tesla, we have wi-fi and remote control, radio, x-ray, fluorescent and neon lighting, and many other innovations. Thanks to Tesla, we also have the alternating current (AC) system that runs our modern power grid and virtually every electric device we use. Tesla dedicated his life to harnessing science and nature for the benefit of humanity. Here are some of the innovations he developed to better our lives.

  • AC motor & power distribution system
  • Remote control & wireless technology
  • Radio & fundamental systems of wireless communication
  • Vertical take-off & landing (VTOL) aircraft
  • Devices for x-ray imaging
  • Bladeless turbine
  • Bifilar coil
  • Devices that use rotating magnetic fields
  • Speedometer & tachometer
  • Electronic ignition for gas engines
  • Devices for lightning protection
  • Devices for high-voltage discharges
  • Fluorescent & neon lighting distribution
  • Laser technology
  • Coaxial cable
  • Devices for charged particle beams
  • Radio frequency oscillators
  • Devices for voltage magnification by standing waves
  • Apparatus for producing ozone

The World Saved Wardenclyffe. Now It's Time to Build.

Over 33,000 people from across the globe united in a 2012 crowdfund to raise the funds needed to purchase Wardenclyffe and save it from demolition. Since then, TSCW and our supporters have persevered to acquire permits and approvals, develop site plans and operations, and do whatever it takes to move the project forward. Now, it's time to break ground and renovate the only laboratory in existence built by the great inventor, Nikola Tesla--but we need your support! Donate today to help create a world-class museum and innovation center that continues Tesla's legacy of advancing science for the betterment of humanity.
