Nikola Tesla and the Tesla Coil

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest geniuses of the 19th century, inventing the AC motor, radio, and our present electrical power system. We will discuss his life, and his inventions up thru 1905. He invented the Tesla Coil in 1890 to generate Extremely High Voltage power that he planned to send wirelessly around the world. A 500,000 volt Tesla Coil that generates spectacular 3 foot long arcs will be used in various experiments, along with a 100,000 volt Induction Coil, a Jacobs Ladder, and other high voltage devices. People with implanted medical electronics should not attend these demos due to the strong Electric and Magnetic fields generated by these apparatus.
