Nikola Tesla, electrical engineer and scientist was best known for his extraordinary contributions to the development of electric power and electromagnetism. While some of his theories often seemed to nudge the line between science and wizardry, the apparent impossibilities of his reasoning were an illusion created by the lack of understanding of emerging technology in his time.
Although our technological capabilities have since come a long way, the fundamental science behind much of what we take for granted goes unexplained. This unawareness has become a comfortable state, justified by the convenience that technology brings us – which is the real illusion.
Today, our gadgetry and electronics rely on unseen forces as much as we rely on them. The following effect celebrates the wonders of natural science and the impossibilities made possible through man-made technology.
