Tesla's birthday

by Anonymous on Jul. 10th, 2009

Nikola Tesla, inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical genius was born on this day in 1856 in the village of Smiljan, Croatia. We had a recent posting about Tesla here on the Buzz if you want to learn more about him. And you should want to learn more. Life today just wouldn't be the same without his ideas and inventions. And I can't think of a more fitting way to honor his genius than this video of two Tesla coils playing the Super Mario Brothers theme song. Happy birthday Nikola!

Google paid tribute to Tesla's birthday, too, with their search page.
Tesla is my favorite scientist. I am reading every biography about Nikola Tesla I can. You should too. You will be amazed, I promise.
