Nikola Tesla is still alive in Silicon Valley providing free wi-fi to visitors from across the globe through one of his wireless lightbulbs.
While Tesla may have passed long ago, he is still providing visitors to Silicon Valley California with free wireless internet access. The famous inventor had many dreams and visions of wireless technologies but unfortunately passed roughly 30 years before the first wireless telephone call was made.
Terry Guyer, a well-respected artist, was commissioned to create a life-size sculpture of Tesla holding one of his large wireless light bulbs. Within this lightbulb sits a wi-fi router that broadcasts to visitors in the area.
While Tesla's influence lives on in many other ways through his advances in technology and electricity, it is nonetheless cool to see a physical image of the inventor providing wireless technology to the masses. Inside the statue also lies a time capsule to be opened on the 100th anniversary of Tesla's death, January 7, 2043.
