“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.”
– Nikola Tesla (1856-1943)
The Inventor is the story of how one man stood against the goliaths of industry and changed the world with nothing but his mind, passion, and vision for a better humanity.
At the end of the 19th century, during a time when inventors were known as wizards and corporations considered their kingdoms, emerged an extraordinary league of gentlemen who shaped the modern world with their minds, money and machines. Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, J.P. Morgan, Guglielmo Marconi, Mark Twain, Lord Kelvin, Swami Vivekananda and others stood at the helm of the ship as the perfect storm was approaching.
At the eye of the storm stood TESLA, a mystic inventor whose genius bordered insanity as he blurred the lines between magic and science. His ideas and inventions were so progressive that he catalyzed the second industrial revolution giving birth to the Electrical Era. Yet despite his genius, passion and impact on humanity, his on-going battle with Edison allowed others to make great fortunes on his inventions leaving him penniless, alone and forgotten…until now.
