Except Tesla never addressed 3 problems regarding his "Idea".

1.) How to counteract the drop in efficiency through wireless transmission, currently our best form of transmission are those giant fucking towers that spread all across the country. Even the loss rate is pretty damn high, to transmit it wirelessly? Holy fuck you would need roughly 10 times the input for a short range transmission (Which is generally why most wireless transfer devices have to be pressed right up against the fucking thing), I can't imagine the ridiculous input/output ratio for long distance transfers.

2.) Health effects. He never once gave an shred of evidence to show how his idea would somehow not be detrimental to animal health much less humans. Since we know the process which he put forth, would be incredibly dangerous.

3.) The cost. Yeah I can see why his investors fucked off, because as I said, my first problem is the amount of input you need for this method. You therefor need a larger source of energy. How would you pay for that? Especially for the ENTIRE world?

He was a great mind for his time, but that shouldn't be attributed to all of his ramblings.

Maybe I should have been a little more clear on this but I can see those as problem needing to be addressed. Electrical Engineering student here.

Basically in simplest terms I can tell you that an electric field is not the same as a magnetic one. there are really no health problems associated with such a field, if so then your electrical outlets, car batteries (any batteries really) and power lines would cause problems (and those are moving charges, not just static ones).

Tesla was also very conscious of the possible health complications of fields and radiation. A good anecdote for you to read would be the story of what happened when he told Edison not to shoot people full of X-rays (let's just say it didn't turn out well for Edison's intern).

As far as energy losses I'm not educated enough to give you hard numbers but the basic principle of the design would be that these transmitters would be in a sort of resonance with a receiver in people's homes (conspiracy theorists will tell you that these receivers were actually free energy generators but they're full of shit) and using the earth as a sort of spherical single point transmitter. Truthfully Wardenclyffe would have been more of a proof of concept but the argument holds true.

In the end they honestly would have SAVED money since they wouldn't have to pay for maintenance and construction of power lines throughout the country. Not to mention that downed power lines are a huge safety hazard.

Honestly It's hard to say if it would have worked. Tesla consistently did things that people once thought impossible. Here's the closest thing I can find about the principles of the device but I warn you, it's a lot if reading.

Hmm. Maybe you need to read about the Telsa Coil a little more. He walked through enough electricity to power several homes and was fine.
User avatar #121 - noblexfenrir (09/01/2014) [-]
Got a source for that considering the amount I do know about Tesla coils is that the amount of power you're talking about, being transferred the distance you're talking about, would not let someone near it who was fine. Again, I may be wrong, but source please.

For the first thing you said, I have read an article in Science Illustrated where Tesla supposedly built a tower that could send wireless energy across the US with a lot more efficiency we have to day.
User avatar #122 - noblexfenrir (09/01/2014) [-]
I highly doubt that, none of his schematics or explanations give any sort of indications he did. Science illustrated is no a science journal and can be just as much a victim of hype pieces or just overall false information like any other magazine.

you do realize that someone has to pay for the electricity, its not free. he didn't just invent a machine that perpetually created energy.
