Man develops method to transmit power to the entire world cheaply and efficiently.

Spends last few years of life penniless and talking to pigeons.

**** happens in real-life too.

Man was supposed to become world's first billionaire, but tore up the contract and GAVE his patents for free, because he wanted his technology to spread and benefit as many people as possible as fast as possible.
Problem with his wireless distribution was that there was no way to charge for electricity people were getting. And producing electricity and distributing it still has costs. Today we could do it with autmatic drain sensors. but Tesla was too far ahead for his time.

I was just referring to AC, which was, and still is, in use throughout most of the world. No need to even go into his deeper catalog for evidence of his brilliance.
