Today, I have for your viewing pleasure, an interesting documentary on one of Steampunk’s most beloved scientists, Nikola Tesla. This documentary is a basic introduction to Tesla’s life and legacy, and if you can get past the attempts to slant the information as some kind of conspiracy for his modern day obscurity, it’s actually relatively informative.
I think it’s safe to assume, given the incredible breadth of Tesla’s genius, that we do not at present know about all of his inventions and the power they contained. Fortunately, Tesla had a deep personal belief in his duty to protect humanity from the destructive capacities of his inventions and technologies, and worked to ensure that humanity wouldn’t manipulate his discoveries into weapons. He’s an inventor with a true conscience.
