Nikola Tesla

  1. This Musical Tribute To Nikola Tesla Is Approximately 1000000x Cooler Than Thomas Edison

    Seriously, Thomas Edison is the worst.

    Matthew Inman (aka The Oatmeal) loves Nikola Tesla. Like, really loves Nikola Tesla. Inman loves Tesla so much that Inman actually saved Tesla's former laboratory from destruction, owns it, and now wants to turn it into a Tesla Museum. So rad. To educate the rest of the world about how awesome Tesla is, Inman and Sarah Donner created this musical homage to his brilliance, and it's pretty great.

  3. Glenn Beck Is Making A Movie About Tesla And Edison

    Well, this could become a cult favorite.

    Glenn Beck says he is tired of politics, he's tired of Hollywood, and he's tired of all the fame and glory being given to "bad man" Thomas Edison. It's the biased biopic that I never would have expected: Glenn Beck is making a movie revealing the darkness behind the (debatable) inventor of the light bulb. Presumably, GE will not be sponsoring.

  7. Do We Over-Aggrandize Nikola Tesla? PBS Idea Channel Explains the Two Nikolas Tesla

    We all know Tesla was great, but we might be overdoing it a little bit.

    Nikola Tesla was a brilliant innovator, and the world owes him a lot, but he's far from the superhero many people make him out to be. In the latest episode of PBS Idea Channel host Mike Rugnetta looks at the idea of the real Tesla vs. the myth of Tesla, which is also real. It's complicated.

    And what do you do with a statue of Nikola Tesla that's also a Wi-Fi hotspot and a time capsule? Send it to Mars, of course.

    In spite of being dead, Nikola Tesla is having a pretty good year. His New York lab was just purchased by a group of admirers looking to turn it into a museum, he could be getting his own cartoon, and now there will be a statue built in his honor in Silicon Valley. And not just any statue -- this one will double as a Wi-Fi hotspot, triple as a time capsule, and it could even be going to Mars in 2043.

    Two animation and science enthusiasts are trying to make every geek's dreams come true. The guys behind Wood Goblin Studios have an Indiegogo campaign to fund the pilot of a cartoon about Nikola Tesla. To make it even nerdier and more perfect, his sidekick is Mark Twain, and they travel through time battling Thomas Edison, because of course they do. My only question about this cartoon is why doesn't it already exist?
