Photo Of Tesla Coil Shooting Electricity Thru the Air
Thanks for the NEW Wire-less electricity info.
Nicola Tesla is mentioned many times in your links.
Tesla invented Radio (Not Marconi) & invented the exact AC current and Alternating current motors we use today.
Then he figured out how to send electricity - without wires - thru the ground - for miles. (It worked. Tesla got light bulbs to light by sticking them into the dirt - 5 miles away from his lab.)
After measuring the vibration frequency of the Earth. He sent power thru the air too at his Colorado test lab. Finding best results High up in the atmosphere - above the ground where the Air did not interfere with power transmission.
Needing Money to fund more research - Tesla wrote an article which got J. Pierpont Morgan to put up 150K for his Wyercliff Tower Project. A cheap method of transferring electric power.
But then the banker discovered that Tesla planned to send electricity thru the air FREE.
So Morgan bankrupted Tesla. Who had a nervous breakdown after he ran out of money.
George Westinghouse stopped paying him. None of Tesla's other partners wanted FREE Electricity or long distance transmission without wires, either.
They wanted to CHARGE for it.
100 years ago Tesla figured it out in his head. Then successfully tested all of this.
Including pulling electricity out of the air and ground. Tesla discovered that electricity is all around us, inside us - everything is made up of electricity.
He thought of the Human body as a "Meat Machine" powered by electricity. One of his machines measured the sudden power spark when an arm muscle was flexed.
Now we come forward 100 years to today.
7 feet vs 5 miles
In your Article links - Modern Scientists sent electromagnetic power 7 feet. By tuning the motor and the light bulb to the same wave length. (Despite what they say I think it dangerous to have Huge amounts of ODD vibrational Electromagnetic energy in the air around us.)
Tesla's electromagnetic energy was SAFE.
HE tuned power supply and receiver to the same EARTH Frequency. We're living inside that frequency already so it's pretty darn safe. Then Sent power many miles with crude equipment.
Have you seen this photo of his Tesla Coil
shooting electricty btwn the coil and the "ground" in Tesla's lab? As long as you wore rubber soled shoes it was safe.

We collect all kinds of WEIRD
Munny making ideas...
Nothing as WEIRD as Tesla, tho...
