If this holy man, would still be alive, what would change? Unlimited energy? Flying cars? He would've changed the goddamn world, he is the Jesus of science/technology.
This. Tesla claimed a lot of bullshit. The only reason he died poor is because of poor money managing and failure to deliver his magic devices.
Tesla made some really interesting developments in terms of studying general energy transmission, but a lot of his ideas were borderline quackery.
Turing did revolutionary work on biology, mathematics, computing, artificial intelligence, and cryptography.
He basically made a method of wireless energy transmission with a theoretical "energy gatherer" that was more like a solar panel than anything else, and would likely have had that much efficiency.
The funny thing is, it even needed its own classical generator to work.
Jobs wasn't obsessed with developing magical technology. Jobs' spiel was basically to take pre-existing ideas, package them with a user-friendly UI, and sell them at an extortionate markup.
>they don't know the DOD took all his death ray shit when he died
>they don't know how wardenclyfe actually works
>they use tesla coil backwards for 100 years
its only magic if you don't understand it.
I don't expect anyone here to get it though, that there could be something else than ac and dc is a meme to you before I explain shit so I won't bother.
I mean for fuck sake there are multiple videos now of people doing above to prove it happens and 'science' is like "nope."
Tesla made a better version of Edison's shit invention. After Tesla did that, everyone on the world used his invention. No-one was interested in Edison's shit motor, after Edison scammed the shit out of Tesla.
he's overrated into pseudoscience.
he was gonna create a wireless electricity source for huge areas? a century ago? how? that sounds plausible?
he spent the last decades of his life feeding pidgeons
high frequency tesla coils
I can tell you haven't even watched the standard documentary covering colorado springs and stuff, let alone actually given a fuck to research this.
i don't want to debate science on this planet anymore .farnsworth
Jobs was a brilliant marketer who basically paved the way for Apple to become what it is today, which is the most valuable publicly traded company on the planet. He wasn't really a visionary or pioneer in the scientific/technological aspect but he's without a doubt one of the greatest salesmen of all time.
Tesla was more of an eccentric mad scientist than a salesman, as evinced by the fact that he was basically penniless with no real business prospects when he died.
If I remember well enough he sold his patents to help a friend, at the end of the day he got sad because his pidgeon friend died, and then he died alone in this apartiment room.
About the claims, I think he just said that to tease Edson or just to get attention of the media.
Jobs was obsessed in manipulate dumb people and take their money, how many iphones are used just to to send text and facebook? why the extra $$ for a brand? you can buy 50 chink phones with the same built quality.
The whole free energy thing would only work with relatively low power devices, You couldn't run something like power tools or electric heaters from a tower. Also there's a ton more people now then when he was around.
Nice to see that you folks can reserve some respect for long-now diseased scientists...
Truly internet is a great invention. Unfortunately, people of little or no sense were allowed to become used to it. I'm sure many in the past thought instant communication and messages would improve everything. It goes to show, people ought not to write before they've had time to process and gather their thoughts properly.
Reminder that Tesla as an SJW Cuck
>In 1926, Tesla commented on the ills of the social subservience of women and the struggle of women toward gender equality, and indicated that humanity's future would be run by "Queen Bees." He believed that women would become the dominant sex in the future.
>The only reason he died poor is because of poor money managing and failure to deliver his magic devices.
Sure thing retard. It totally had nothing to do with his adversaries that owned a powerful established monopoly on energy.
From reading what tesla wrote, I get the impression that he thought he could electromagnetically couple circuits to upper atmosphere wind currents.
I'm on the fence about how much of his shit I believe. He did invent some useful shit, but also made a lot of wild claims.
6. During the war of the currents, alternating current (AC) -- favored by Tesla -- battled for wide acceptance with direct current (DC), favored by Edison. At stake was the basis for the entire nation’s electrical system. Edison launched a campaign against AC, claiming it was dangerous and could kill people; Tesla countered by publicly subjecting himself to 250,000-volt shocks to demonstrate AC’s safety. Ultimately, alternating current won the fight.
Why are people so dubm?
I think it's possible, but it'll only happen if a relatively small group of first-world, intellectual, open-minded individuals can break off from the rest of humanity and start over, likely as a space colony of some kind.
Anything of the vein attempted as part of earth's society within the next 50-100 years will fall flat on its face because we have too many people who'd be unable to cope with a system in which scarcity plays no part. Even if a handful of people achieved it, outsiders would ruin it through mob-minded paranoia.
Nice judging the past by the knowledge of the present there friend.
It doesn't even take 1600s era knowledge to know not to fuck around with your eyes. Humans have known how fragile their optical organs are likely since they started communicating. It's not rocket surgery.
fuckin kekked and im a faggot
Loved this guy in The Prestige. Didn't knew he was like real n stuff.
