Radio Radio is the technology of signaling and communicating using radio waves. Tesla Coil Tesla coil; it is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. Tesla Turbine Induction Motor The Tesla turbine is a bladeless centripetal flow turbine patented by Nikola Tesla in 1913. The induction motor is an AC electric motor uses current to produce torque obtained by electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator winding. Impact Nikola Tesla's Impact Many of the inventions created by Nikola are still very important in our daily lives still such as the radio, remote control and induction motor. The remote control is something used in your everyday life.

Life Watt’s father, who was the the treasurer and magistrate of Greenock, ran a successful ship- and house-building business. Watt was taught for a time at home by his mother. Eventually, in grammar school, he learned Latin, Greek, and mathematics. His father’s workshops, where, with his own tools, bench, and forge, he made models (e.g., of cranes and barrel organs) and grew familiar with ships’ instruments. This gave him an early opportunity to use his creativity and put them to reality. His father's impact Early life James gave up his plans to go to university. Instead, he trained in London as a scientific instrument maker, specializing in mathematical and nautical instruments. Within two months, his skills were higher than others who had been in training for two years. After a year in London, he found work at Glasgow University repairing instruments for the astronomy department. His professors soon realized Watt in the workshop was way ahead of his peers. They began calling on him to discuss their work. Taking his opportunity Education The steam engine helped pave the way for more advanced modern power sources today. Without the development of the steam engine, you may not have power in your house today since modern power sources wouldn't of been developed yet (without the help of the steam engine) The steam engine today... How it effects us today In 1776, James Watt invented an improved steam engine. This was a major turning point for the industrial revolution as now all the brand new machines that were coming out, now had a reliable power source. Watt's invention drove the industry forward.
