It is the concept that is far ahead of the time. In Tesla time, the radio required a huge room and enormous power supplies. To be able to talk around
the world was not even a dream.
As for science fiction and fantasy, suggest more reading especially of the authors from about 1930. Robert A. Heinlein foresaw a take over of the
United States by a "Prophet." With a religious dogma similar to radical Islam or the early Christian sects, and just as cruel and vicious in the
name of the "Prophet" as any presently running around. It would require a bloody and vicious rebellion to overthrow the yoke of his religion. But,
there are many tidbits among the other authors as well. It started with Jules Verne, try reading his book (manuscript found decades after his death)
about Paris in the Twentieth Century. It sometimes seems by looking into their thoughts and imaginations, they saw things years and decades into the
future. Mr Heinlein, can't help it I have about every book ever written by him, described the water bed in "Stranger In A Strange Land." It was
used to deny a patent application for the water bed, as a published description made the concept public domain. Arthur C. Clarke did more then
describe the concept of using satellites for communications purposes. Issac Asimov, a totally brilliant individual, famous for the concept behind "I,
Robot", spoke to the concept of automation and dealing with humanities children the autonomous, artificial intelligence.
