Favorite quote

An inventor's endeavour is essentially lifesaving. Whether he harnesses forces, improves devices… he is adding to the safety of our existence.

Nikola Tesla


Nikola Tesla is one of the most brilliant minds the world has ever seen, and yet very few know much about the man himself. Amongst Tesla's many achievements, he is responsible for the development of the alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Today, we use AC to power televisions, kitchen appliances, and many other devices in our homes.

Tesla's autobiography, My Inventions, was compiled from a six-part article series that a then-63-year-old Tesla wrote for a publication called the Electrical Experimenter in 1919.

Tesla was known for his eccentricity, so his personal life was just as eventful as his illustrious career. With so little available on Tesla, My Inventions is perhaps the most intimate account of the genius's life.
