Some of Tesla’s achievements:
Alternating current — We would not have long distance power lines without it.
Hydropower — Westinghouse utilized Tesla’s patents to make hydroelectric power.
Radio and television — In 1891 Tesla invented a transformer for the production of high frequency and high voltage electricity used in every radio and television.
Remote control — Patent for remote control by radio of moving vessels and vehicles, laying the groundwork for wireless telemechanics, robotics and satellite communication.
Radar — Principals dealing with frequency and power level, that were established in 1917 by Tesla.
Wireless energy transmission — World Fair in Chicago in 1893, Tesla transmitted electricity by firing up a series of phosphorous light bulbs with what he called electrodynamic induction.
X-rays — Röntgen is credited with the discovery of X-rays in 1895. However, Tesla’s experiments revealed some of the inherent dangers of using radiation on human flesh.
Robotics — Tesla imagined that robots would be able to perform labor in the future.
Earthquake machine — In 1898, Tesla claimed he had built and deployed a small oscillating device that, when attached to his office and operating, nearly shook down the building and everything around it.
