Nikola Tesla is arguably the greatest inventor of all time. OCD, highly eccentric, and burdened with a number of phobias, his extraordinary inventions include AC, radio, the hydroelectric generator, fluorescent light, the rotary engine, the laser beam, remote control, x-rays, the bladeless turbine, radar, and wireless technology, to name just a few.
Nikola Tesla “the forgotten genius,” died in 1943, alone and a virtual pauper. His only real friends were the pigeons that walked the streets below his small room at the aging Hotel New Yorker. As we approach 2017, it seems so obvious to me that now is the perfect time to honor this brilliant and humble man with a Hollywood biopic.
