This is purely out of interest, nothing more. Without Googling or anything, what comes to mind when i mention the name 'Nikola Tesla'?

And then what do you say when i mention the name Thomas Edison?

I think that there was some contention between who invented electricity between the two? I also think that Telsa had something to do with the radio.

Tesla rings no bell besides the Tesla Roadster, an electric sports car.
Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb. He may not have been the first, but it worked better than the ones before him.

Thomas Edison was a jerk who robbed Tesla of all his inventions. Nikolai Tesla was a genius and it's sad (and obvious by this thread, as no doubt was the TCs intention) that the world still doesn't know.

I know who Nikola Tesla is, but the first thing that came to my mind were Tesla Coils in Red Alert.

It was, im confused as to why so many people know of Edison but barely as much know about Tesla, he practically invented the 21st century.

Because it would cost too much for a reprint?

Tesla was a genius and invented both electrical transformers and Alternating Current both of which are needed to make Electricity work in practical terms

Edison was a tool who flew a kite in a thunderstorm, invented the horrendously impractical Direct Current and had tesla not existed the sky would be basically a mesh of wires of various different voltages and amerages in order to not destroy most of the equipment that currently exists (if even possible - the priciple used in transformers is very similar to the principle resistors work on and no resistors means no transistors which means even the old fashioned radios would've been impossible.)

Very true and very sad, however its Edison who is credited with all these inventions when he was nothing more then a heavily sponsored fool with no genius in him at all.
