You know, ol' Nik was as close as you can get to being a real "mad scientist" I think. Some amazing discoveries; some far out theories....which may prove correct one day.

=p

So true. :lol:

I think that game is the first time I heard of Tesla. :nodding:

It's also the game that thought me words such as "acknowledged" and "affirmative", though at the time (primairy school) I thought it was Russian, I tried looking it up in the ENglish-Dutch dictionary but coulnd't find it. In highschool I sound learned those words were English afterall (as I at first thought but finding no result I thought they had to be russian of some sort, never really heard any russian up to then either) and what they meant. Hehehe.

Just came across an article that might be interesting for the Tesla-fans here: BBC NEWS | Technology | Wireless power system shown off

Looks like wireless transfer of electricity is about to enter the market almost a century after Tesla started working on concepts for this.
