Birth and Death
  • Born on 10 July 1856
  • He was born at Smiljan, Croatia what is today Republic of Croatia.
  • Death – 7 January 1943
  • He past away in hotel New Yorker in room 3327
  • This where Nikola Tesla was born.
  • This where Nikola Tesla sadly pasted away
his field of study
His Field of Study
  • He was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicists, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
what he was famous for
What He was FAMOUS for
  • Rotating Magnetic Field (1882): A motor powered by alternating current (AC) instead of direct current (DC).
  • AC Motor (1883): the revolving part of any electromechanical device to whirl around the motor.
  • Tesla coil (1890): The electrical coil named for its inventor is one of Tesla's most prized inventions, and he used it to its full dramatic extent in demonstrations held in his New York City lab.
  • Radio (1897). Tesla first sent a wireless transmission from his lab at Houston Street in New York City to a boat on the Hudson River -- 25 miles (40 km) away -- in 1897; he would've done this sooner but a fire started that destroyed his previous lab in 1895.
  • Tesla built on these discoveries and inventions to create the first wireless remote control boat, fluorescent and neon lights (which he did indeed bend into letters), wireless bulbs that were lit by energy from the earth and an AC power plant that harnessed the hydroelectric power of Niagara Falls. He even had a hand in the creation of robotics.
where nikola tesla worked
Where Nikola Tesla worked.
  • Nikola started working as an assistant engineer in Maribor.
  • Then he wanted to fulfill his father wish to finish college, in 1880 Tesla enrolled in a school in Prague.
  • 1884 Edison gave Tesla a job in his laboratory in New York, but their collaboration did not last very long.
  • Tesla went to work in Paris for the Continental Edison Company, and, while on assignment to Strassburg in 1883, he constructed, in after-work hours, his first induction motor.
  • Tesla sailed for America in 1884, arriving in New York
nikola was famous for
Nikola was famous for….
  • He was famous for the alternating current (AC).
  • He did it be making a motor with wire and magnets. The magnets spin around the wire which causes electricity .
  • He is also famous for the radio.
  • Nikola also created the X-Ray.
how his accomplishments benefited the world
How his accomplishments benefited the world.
  • His inventions benefited the world by creating one the first motor worked by alternating current instead of direct current. Also he created the wireless light bulb. Nikola created the radio before the Marconi. He also created a the x-ray.
two interesting facts about nikola tesla
Two interesting facts about Nikola Tesla
  • HE DEVELOPED THE IDEA FOR SMARTPHONE TECHNOLOGY IN 1901; In the race to develop transatlantic radio, Tesla described to his funder and business partner, J.P. Morgan, a new means of instant communication that involved gathering stock quotes and telegram messages, funneling them to his laboratory, where he would encode them and assign them each a new frequency. That frequency would be broadcast to a device that would fit in your hand, he explained.
  • HE HAD A PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY AND A FEAR OF GERMS; He was known to memorize books and images and stockpile visions for inventions in his head. He also had a powerful imagination and the ability to visualize in three dimensions, which he used to control the terrifying vivid nightmares he suffered from as a child.
