    pretty interesting read... was it a hoax or was Nikola just a super genius that was severely under appreciated in his time?

    Yes, there is a whole lore surrounding that. I think the thought was it was receiving RF power from a very high powered transmitting tower nearby.

    Back in his day, pre "electronics" he could transmit massive amounts of power and build specific devices to receive it. These days such a "stunt" would likely fry all sorts of other equipment nearby I would think. Or maybe he knew something that no one ever figured out?
