WHAT'S NEXT; Soaring Into the Air With a Boost From a Laser Beam
: "SOMEWHERE, Nikola Tesla is smiling.
More than a century ago, Tesla -- as famous for his discovery of alternating current as for his claim of inventing a giant death ray -- dazzled onlookers by sending bolts of electricity crackling 30 feet through the air. To him this was proof that one day information and electricity would be sent across the skies instead of through copper cable."

Tesla was great, he had an intuitive understanding of science and technology that was amazing, he invented the AC motor/Generator while on a walk in a garden which he promptly drew into the dirt to capture it. It is better to carry a Hipster around now.

He also invented the fluorescent bulb. It is amazing what he did. He is worth some study if you are into the history of technology.
