Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist who lived from 1856-1943. He is best known for his design, which is still used today, with the alternating current(AC), electricity supply system.

Although Nikola Tesla  is not a household name, many believe he was one the greatest minds that ever lived, with his die-hard fans arguing he was way ahead of his contemporaries Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison. Plans are underway to build a crowd, funded a museum dedicated to the inventor, and the project is spearheaded by Matthew Inman, proprietor of the webcomic The Oatmeal.
