Quotes: Nikola Tesla In 1926

WHEN WOMAN IS BOSS: An interview with Nikola Tesla by John B. Kennedy

When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole. We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance. Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone. A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket.

We shall be able to witness and hear events — the inauguration of a President, the playing of a world series game, the havoc of an earthquake or the terror of a battle — just as though we were present.

Emphasis added by me.

What would he have thought of the iPhone!?

And get this:

It is more than probable that the household’s daily newspaper will be printed ‘wirelessly’ in the home during the night.

He saw this in 1926!

That’s eighty-two years ago.

Can you see eighty-two years ahead?

  1. He only missed one thing. He didn’t foresee that men would no longer be wearing vests. lol He probably saw a man pulling out this device from his vest pocket, attached to a fob like his watch used to be, holding it out at arm’s length and peering at it through his spectacles. Well, a man can’t see everything. cell phones, yes. The demise of the vest as an item of daily wear, no.
