There is a statue of Tesla in Silicon Valley that radiates free wifi



Nikola Tesla is an under-recognized inventor who was instrumental to our mainstay system of electricity transfer (alternating current) and made hundreds of significant and groundbreaking inventions in areas of wireless energy, wireless communication, magnetism, radio, x-rays, cosmic rays, radar, robotics, engine-powered aircraft and much more.

Silicon Valley enjoys an elevated lifestyle derived from advancing the foundation Nikola Tesla helped lay.  This project pays respect to the person who used his brilliance to advance society, not for personal wealth.  

The Tesla Statue can inspire entrepreneurs - who come here from all over the world - to think similarly, especially on big topics like energy and wireless information transfer.

The free exchange of information and affordable access to sustainable energy have the potential to solve the critical issues of poverty and education, and inspire 




Nikola Tesla was a visionary inventor who immigrated to the United States in 1884.  Tesla poured all of his time, money and energy into the advancement of his inventions, caring little for the lure of financial outcomes.  Wireless and energy remain two of the Silicon Valley's biggest opportunities.

The Tesla Statue will embody Tesla's belief in the power of the creative spirit and will inspire entrepreneurs living here and those who visit from around the world to think creatively about humanity's greatest challenges.



What did Nikola Tesla accomplish?

Nikola Tesla is credited with the most significant contributions to the alternating current electricity system which we all now rely on every minute of every day.  Tesla also made hundreds of significant and groundbreaking inventions in areas of wireless energy, wireless communication, magnetism, radio, x-rays, cosmic rays, radar, robotics, engine-powered aircraft and much more.  In 1943, the Supreme Court of the United States gave priority to Tesla’s radio patents over Marconi’s.

Tesla’s inability to sustain substantial personal wealth from his inventions should not be confused with a lack of commercialization or financial success.  In 1888 Tesla struck a deal for his alternating current and induction motor patents with Westinghouse, valued at $24 million cash in today's dollars plus a rich royalty; he agreed to tear up the royalty contract ten years later to aid the near bankrupt Westinghouse.  Around the same time, Thomas Edison lost ownership of the electric company that he started to financiers who did not show the same mercy as Tesla.

Tesla was a visionary who thought beyond the profits of wire and sought to make energy and information freely available around the world.  Tesla remained respected and very popular throughout his lifetime, gracing the cover of Time Magazine at age 75 and receiving reporters regularly for press conferences.
