Tesla would be 159 today & was one of technology's greats

Nikola Tesla, what an awesome individual (and I use the word with its original meaning). He's meant more to all of us than most of us will ever know and helped shape so many things we take for granted today. A genius, geek and consummate weirdo. Happy 159th birthday.

No-one quite celebrates him like The Oatmeal and you can keep an eye on the Tesla Museum, which was crowdfunded by The Oatmeal, here.
