    As the scientist and inventor, not the car. For sure one of the gratest of all time, but incredibly unknown to the masses. AC, asinchronous electric motors, neons, radars, etc etc etc

    I've had a chance to stop at his birth house which is now a museum, and a nice one too. Took some pics, and processed them in B&W to give them a kick I think would be in line with the style of the genius:

    The house where he lived:

    A neon with the numbers of his patents:

    Darn, I was hoping for maybe some shots of the band. :wink:

    Jokes aside, your images are great and Tesla's impact has been sadly overlooked.

    There's a free Kindle book right now titled "Tesla: The Man Who Invented the 20th Century."

    He was a genius but also a little on the insane side, especially late in his life. In any list of great inventors he is in the top ten and often #2 or #3.

    I love the first picture!
