Tesla's investors dropped the project when they realized there was no way to meter the power to make money on the end user. We've been trying to catch up for 100 years and are still far behind where he was with his understanding of radiant energy. With reportedly over 700 patents awarded him worldwide, no wonder it has taken us so long to catch up. The man who shaped the twentieth century, with his invention of the radio, radar, x-ray, AC power, and the induction motor, is now shaping the twenty-first century as we finally begin implementing his methods of tapping and distributing free energy.

Inventions of Nikola Tesla


Tesla accumulated in excess of 700 patents.

Free Energy Related Inventions

Radiant Energy

Nikola Tesla had a special conversion tube for radiant energy. Its function was to convert a normal electric current into radiant energy. This tube had a sphere of copper for an electrode and a sphere of carbon for its counter-electrode. (Does anyone know which was the anode and which was the cathode? Powerful magnets were arranged to create a magnetic field perpendicular to the discharge path between the electrodes. This is similar to a maser except that instead of swirling the electrons in a magnetic field to release light the electrons are "disintegrated" into light. This means a very large quantity of "radiant energy" (high energy photons) is produced from the electron. How? The electron is not a particle it is a self-sustaining vortex of aether. The electron spins in a vortex absorbing aether from the medium to sustain itself. By sending a stream of electrons at high voltage against a magnetic field, it interferes with the electrons ability to sustain itself; it becomes light. For more information on this you can look up data from Peter Lindemann or Roentgen (the German who investigated electrons then called "cathode rays" and believed contrary to the British that electrons were vortices).

  • Featured: Radiant Energy / Nikola Tesla >
    Radiant Energy System a century in waiting - An article reprint that has been making the rounds through email, and posted around the web, points out that Nikola Tesla had a clean energy system in 1901 which could have taken the world in a completely different direction than the fossil-fuel-based path they chose instead. (PESN; Jan. 22, 2010)
  • Electromagnetic / Electrostatic >
    Bearden: The Real Cause of the Energy Crisis - "In 1891 Nikola Tesla -- who gave us AC electric power, the rotating magnetic field that makes modern motors and generators possible, and radio -- had already discovered how to take all the EM energy one wishes directly from the seething 'active medium' -- i.e., in modern physics terms, from the active vacuum. He was already briefing technical societies that this could be done at will." (Hasslberger Blog; April 1, 2011)

Magnifying Transmitter

Tesla's Magnifying Transmitter is the largest Tesla Coil ever built (a variation). Located in Tesla's Colorado Springs lab, it measured 52 feet in diameter and produced lightning bolts more than 100 feet long. According to accounts, Tesla used it to transmit tens of thousands of watts of power wirelessly. It was the final basis for the Wardenclyffe tower.

See also Directory:Wireless Transmission of Electricity


The Wardenclyffe Tower was meant to be the start of a global system for wireless telecommunications and a national (and later global) system of towers broadcasting power to users as radio waves. Instead of supplying electricity through a current grid system, users would simply "receive" power through antennas on their roofs. The tower was scrapped for metal to be used in WWII (so that today we can war over oil). Today, its principles are implemented by HAARP, which is used for weather modification, and was recently bought by the Carlyle Group from the U.S. Govt.

Technologies Not Yet Fully Tapped

Tesla Turbines

  • Directory:Tesla Turbines - Rather than using blades and friction, the Tesla Turbine uses parallel, closely spaced disks that tap viscosity of the gas passing by.

Wireless Lighting

Tesla invented cordless gas discharge lamps.

Jeff Bahary of ElectroTherapymuseum has replicated this device and says that it is a feasible technology that should be implemented today.

  • Lighting / Tesla > Wireless Transmission >
    Ville Piippola' Wireless Lighting and More - "I have been researching wireless lighting based on Nikola Tesla’s research and Ronald R. Stiffler’s Spatial Energy Coherence. The results are exciting. These pages contain unconventional research on natural energies. Special interests are in the fields of magnetism and subtle energies. The purpose is to search new innovations for future well-being and share information with researchers alike." (VillesResearch; September 12, 2012)

Extraterrestrial Radio Transmitter

See PESWiki article: Teslascope -- Extraterrestrial Radio Transmitter - Radio transmitter designed by Nikola Tesla and featured on his 75th birthday in Time Magazine, was intended to communicate with extraterrestrial life on other planets. Speak into one end, and the signal goes out the other end as a cosmic ray emitter, and vice versa.

Dynamic Theory of Gravity

Tesla's work on flying craft is perhaps the least well known, and perhaps the most revolutionary in how it would change the way we live if it were implemented today. As of this date, Tesla's work in this area is still classified by the U.S. Government.

There are several references to an "ideal flying machine" Tesla wanted to develop (see). It had no "sustaining planes, wings, propeller nor gas bag". Tired of all the recurring hostilities and hoping that with such a machine these wars could be finally ended, Tesla proposed his ideal flying machine for a patent at the Swiss patent office. Prior to this, he had proposed his machine to the American government (as he always did with his inventions) but nobody there believed him. Even after his death his discovery remained unnoticed to the American government until reports started coming in about strange flying objects in the European skies. Nearly one year after his death, all his notes and dossiers (truckloads) were hastily transferred from the Office of Alien property warehouse where they were stored at his death to a secured place, and all of them were classified, and are still today.

Telegeodynamics is a system for geophysical exploration. Based on his reciprocating mechanical oscillator, it employs a mechanical earth-resonance concept for underground seismic exploration. It is published in his book, Nikola Tesla's Teleforce & Telegeodynamics Proposals ISBN 0963601288. Tesla explained that a long sequence of small explosions could be used to find ore and create earthquakes large enough to destroy the Earth. He did not experiment with this as he felt there would not be "a desirable outcome". (Wikipedia)

Conventional Energy Inventions

Devices that have made it into everyday life in the modern world.

A.C. Power

The backbone of today's energy distribution system -- alternating current -- was invented by Tesla.

  • Tesla did not "invent" AC - Alternating Current was being taught in schools, but it was through Tesla's invention of the AC induction motor and the superior efficiency of Tesla's designs that brought about the implementation of AC power over the opposition of DC investors. (PESN footnote; June 12, 2006)
  • Alternating Current - an electrical current, where electrical charge oscillates (i.e., moves back and forth), rather than flowing continuously in one direction as is the case with direct current. (Wikipedia)


Tesla made the first public demonstration of radio communication in 1893 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Claims have been made that Nathan Stubblefield/PESWiki Nathan Stubblefield/Wikipedia [invented radio before either Tesla or Marconi, but his device seems to have worked by induction transmission rather than radio transmission. (Wikipedia)

  • Electromagnetism > Nikola Tesla >
    Tapping Tesla to Save Trapped Miners - The noted pioneer in electricity and radio showed over a century ago that a magnetic wave generator could be used for wireless communications. Basically, the generator works like an electromagnet. Powered by standard alternating current or battery, it runs electricity through a wire that is coiled around a metal cylinder, creating a harmless, low-energy magnetic field that extends for hundreds of meters. (ScienceMag; Aug. 20, 2010)



Tesla conceived of radar in 1917, and built the first primitive device in 1934. ([1])

Tesla Coil

A Tesla Coil is a high-voltage, air-core, self-regenerative resonant transformer that generates very high voltages at high frequency.

Induction Motor

Tesla built the first induction motor (electric motor), invented in 1882.


  • Tesla's Solar Ideas - According to The Electrical Experimenter (1916), in addition to his prolific electrical work, Tesla patented a sun motor. The article also discusses the Shuman-boy's engine and sun boiler installed in Egypt with output of 100 horsepower.

Military Inventions

Tesla Shield

An electromagnetic shell which armaments could not penetrate. Tesla shields would transmit electrical energy without wires and produce destructive effects at a distance. ([2].)


A charged particle beam projector for "Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media." It was was primarily intended to be used as an instrument of national defense akin to an invisible "Chinese Wall of Defense". Tesla stated that nations, when detecting invading armies, could destroy their opponent's military units and reduce incoming aerial craft as far as 200 to 250 miles away. In 1937, Tesla remarked, "But it is not an experiment ... I have built, demonstrated, and used it. Only a little time will pass before I can give it to the world." (Wikipedia > Teleforce.)

Death Ray

  • FBI: We Don't Have Tesla's Death Ray - As part of its centennial celebration, the FBI just released a list of the "Top Ten Myths in FBI History." Among other things, the list debunks the silly urban legend that the FBI spies on innocent Americans -- you know, like war protestors and people with phones. "We won't have a 'file' on you unless you're a spy or terrorist or criminal or are suspected of being one." Myth #10) The FBI has Nikola Tesla's plans for a "death ray." (Wired; July 24,2008)

Tesla was ignored by the US War Department when he told them had been working on some form of teleforce weapon, or death ray. But when he wound up dead in his apartment a few days later, they classified his documents Top Secret. (Wikipedia)

The concept of a death ray is generally portrayed as some form of directed energy weapon that projects energy at a person or object in order to destroy them. Tesla's iteration was apparently related to his research into ball lightning and plasma. (Wikipedia)

Earthquake Machine

  • Weather Control > Nikola Tesla >
    Nikola Tesla's Earthquake Machine - He put his little vibrator in his coat-pocket and went out to hunt a half-erected steel building. Down in the Wall Street district, he found one--ten stories of steel framework without a brick or a stone laid around it. He clamped the vibrator to one of the beams, and fussed with the adjustment until he got it. Tesla said finally the structure began to creak and weave and the steel-workers came to the ground panic-stricken, believing that there had been an earthquake... (BeforeItsNews; December 7, 2011)

Other Discoveries

Mechanical Amplification

  • Tesla / eMedia Press >
    Jim Murray on Tesla's Hidden Discoveries - "Everybody knows that Nikola Tesla made extraordinary discoveries in the field of electrical science. But did you know that he also made monumental discoveries in mechanics? It's true! He even discovered how to make a 'Mechanical Amplifier' to multiply mechanical power!" (PureEnergyBlog; August 27, 2013)

Extraterrestrial Signals

In the Colorado Springs lab, Tesla recorded what he concluded were extraterrestrial radio signals and announced his findings in some of the scientific journals of the time. [3] He noted measurements of repetitive signals from his receiver which are substantially different from the signals he had noted from storms and earth noise. Specifically, he later recalled that the signals appeared in groups of clicks 1, 2, 3, and 4 clicks together. He published these findings and his interpretations in an article: "A Giant Eye to See Round the World", Albany Telegram; Feburary 25, 1923.
