This Hollywood-budget film, to be released in 2015, follows Nikola Tesla’s life from his rivalry with Edison to his relationships with Mark Twain, George Westinghouse, JP Morgan, for universal free energy at his lab in Wardenclyffe.

A project of Northern Imagination LLC, a creative community projects company founded by Dorrian Porter.

The bronze statue is fitted with free wi-fi, in tribute to Nikola Tesla’s vision of free wireless distribution of electric power worldwide. A time capsule is buried in the statue, to be opened 30 years later in 2043.

The project was funded by donations and was unveiled on December 7, 2013 in Silicon Valley.

This statue of Nikola Tesla was unveiled in Shoreham on September 23, 2013 and the museum takes shape in the newly acquired property, Wardenclyffe from Agfa Corporation. More than 100 volunteers continue to clean up the place ravaged by overgrowth, vandalism, dust and decay.

A careful examination on what, how, and why Nikola Tesla invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla’s private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an “idealist” inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through myth-making and illusion.

This major biography sheds new light on Tesla’s visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.
