Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!

Nikola Tesla, one of the most famous scientists and inventors of all time, was born 153 years ago today. His work helped pave the road for many modern uses of electricity and among other things, he is credited as the original inventor of radio. However, perhaps the most famous product he created was the Tesla coil, a type of resonant transformer that is still one of the most popular and visually stimulating electrical inventions ever made. For more information about Nikola Tesla, feel free to check out his wikipedia page, as well as a museum you can visit if you’re ever in the Belgrade, Serbia region. Here are a couple of cool youtube videos of tesla coils.
