Hippolyte Pixii (1808–1835) was an instrument maker from Paris, France. In 1832 he built an early form of alternating current electrical generator, based on the principle of magnetic induction discovered by Michael Faraday. Pixii's device was a spinning magnet, operated by a hand crank, where the North and South poles passed over a coil with an iron core.

I like that Tesla was able to shoot fireballs out of his butt while sucking energy from the universe through the aether, all the while while solving mysteries like how black holes are formed, time travel and anti-gravity.
Tesla also suffered from a disorder we now commonly refer to as "being bat# insane." Tesla hallucinated and often had a hard time differentiating between reality and his imagination....
Thomas Edison was an idiot; Tesla was the greatest geek EVER!
judging a man that helped build the ideas you use for powering your computer

Nice to see Tesla finally starting to get the recognition he deserves. it's questionable that Hippoltyte Pixii's generator was practical while Teslas fathered our modern electrical world.edit on 6-6-2012 by hawkiye because: (no reason given)

Is a company trying to place the name Tesla with a negative association of the youth of tomorrow?.
Screw you Disney. Illuminati scum to the core. too much MKultra connections with Disney...
