Nikola Tesla, the eccentric, enigmatic, and brilliant scientist who revolutionized electricity and set the stage for future wireless technology, was born on July 10, 1856. Throughout his life, Tesla registered more than 300 patents and envisioned many more inventions. In perhaps the best foreshadowing in history, Tesla was born around midnight during a fierce lightning storm in Serbia. Serbian-American engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) made dozens of breakthroughs in the production, transmission and application of electric power. He invented the first alternating current (AC) motor and developed AC generation and transmission technology.
