The Current War: Director’s Cut

October 29, 2019, mkrause


Welcome to another film about the “war of currents”, and another actor (Nicholas Hoult) re-creating Tesla’s character. It seems to be more of a Vaudeville show, a period piece, with lacking momentum at the finale set during the 1893 Chicago World Fair. Certainly, it is always fun to watch Benedict Cumberbatch, this time as a bold Edison. The film’s story in itself is also interesting, as its release was planned originally in 2017 by Weinstein Co. The rest is silence. Go see some fabulous Tesla pieces re-created in this movie!

VIZIV Tesla 08122018


Viziv Technologies, a tech firm, is going to further develop the transmission of wireless energy. Their mission is the “commercialization of the Zenneck surface wave”, as stated on their website (www.vizivtechnologies.com). Jonathan Zenneck (1871-1959), a native German, became assistant to Ferdinand Braun at Strasbourg in 1895. There, Zenneck was introduced to the art of wireless transmission of any kind by the lectures of Nikola Tesla. Zenneck worked on Maxwell’s equations, i.e. on waves located around an interface between conducting and non-conductiong medium (“Zenneck waves”). During WW1, Zenneck became was a leading figure in the patent case Telefunken vs. Marconi. After the war Zenneck studied the properties of the Ionosphere. Viziv Technologies will utilize mentioned Zenneck waves and claim that they “can propagate around the Globe from a single location with until-now unachievable efficiency.” The concept seems to be quite similar to Tesla’s Wardenclyffe project. Good luck!

Why is Nikola Tesla so important today?

September 9, 2017, mkrause

Chicago Tribune, 1897


In the last decade, many books, films, articles have been published about Nikola Tesla. National Geographic will showcase a whole series about the inventor, and even cars are being built nowadays with his name on it. Can you tell me (and us), why is that so? Why is Nikola Tesla so important today? Please send comments. Thank you.
