I remember it being so much bigger. But I saw it when it was at the Buhl Planetarium. I think it used to be at least a story and a half high. It also was not as colorful. Just black or brown. I am wondering if they moth balled that one. If I remember correctly George Westinghouse built that one. Possibly even with Tesla himself since he funded some of Teslas work,Aww, how cute, they have little tesla coils.
(I'm from Long Island, we had the BIG ONE here)
I remember it as being about 20 feet tall at the Buhl also. They said it wasn't allowed to be turned on because of the FCC. Disrupted TV reception.I remember it being so much bigger.

And that is exactly why the power companies would have gone down the drain. It's a lose-lose for them. Either they take over the free wireless electricity industry and they go broke, or other people give it away for free and it takes the business away from the power companies. Either way, the economy would certainly change, regardless of the method. The same goes for cars that run on water, or air. What if they ever come into existence? The gas and petrol companies will lose income, and will have to shut down. And how would this affect the economy? That's the problem with technology nowadays. We have a limit to what we can invent because if we cross the line, the economy will take a dip. IMHO the world should have been more careful about building its entire foundation on the fragile economy. One small hit and the entire thing could come crashing down....I don't think the power companies would have taken a hit. If something costs and you give if away for free, you will quickly go broke. This is basic economics.
That was the genius of Tesla's design. If I'm not mistaken, once the wireless transmitters were set up, the idea was that it wouldn't cost anything to keep them running.The people trying to give it away would quickly go bankrupt, which is my original point.
Nothing is free that is made by man. Without some profit, no matter how slight, any enterprise is doomed.
