Nikola Tesla, legendary inventor, predicted Cell Phone in 1909


Tesla endured a frightening number of injustices during his lifetime. Perhaps that’s one reason why so many have forgotten the name of inventor Nikola Tesla.
Nikola Tesla was a pioneer in a staggering number of fields; AC power was only one of them. He has also done significant research and development in a wide variety of other disciplines, and his body of patents ranges through such diverse fields as robotics, wireless communications, turbines, fluid dynamics, radar, therapeutic equipment, VTOL aircraft, artificial lighting, X-rays, and computer systems.
Though history books continue to give Guglielmo Marconi credit for the invention of radio, Tesla’s lectures on wireless broadcasting precede Marconi’s radio patents by some three years.
The US Supreme Court ruled on the matter in Tesla’s favor, and struck down Marconi’s patent claim, in 1943.
It turns out that the legendary inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla (1856 to 1943) predicted mobile phones in 1909. In an interview with the New York Times, published in Popular Mechanics, Tesla states that "It will soon be possible, for instance, for a business man in New York to dictate instructions and have them appear in type in London or elsewhere. He will be able to call from his desk and talk with any telephone subscriber in the world. It will only be necessary to carry an inexpensive instrument no bigger than a watch, which will enable its bearer to hear anywhere on sea or land for distances of thousands of miles."

Nikola Tesla, leggendario inventore, nel 1909 aveva già previsto  l’uso dei telefoni cellulari

Si scopre che il leggendario inventore e ingegnere elettronico Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), nel 1909 ha predetto l’avvento dei telefoni cellulari.
In un’intervista rilasciata al New York Times (v. ritaglio fotografico pubblicato dalla rivista Popular Mechanics), Tesla afferma:
"Presto, per esempio, sarà possibile per un uomo d’affari a New York, dettare istruzioni per farle comparire in scrittura a Londra o altrove. Egli sarà in grado di chiamare dalla sua scrivania per parlare con qualsiasi abbonato telefonico in tutto il mondo.
In mare o in terra potrà comunicare ovunque a migliaia di chilometri di distanza.
Tutto ciò sarà possibile farlo con solo un piccolo strumento, economico, grande quanto un orologio".
