‘Tesla’ Trailer: Ethan Hawke Electrifies in a Fourth Wall-Breaking Nikola Tesla Biopic

The movie biopic has become so rote that even the word can elicit a sense of nagging boredom. So how do you inject some life into the prestigious, but ultimately by-the-numbers, biographical drama? By hitting it with a little lightning. Tesla stars Ethan Hawke as the groundbreaking inventor Nikola Tesla, whose discoveries in wireless energy would change the world. And with his fourth wall-breaking biopic Tesla, director Michael Almereyda hopes to change our perception of the genre. Tesla Tr...

A 1947 French Film Accurately Predicted Our 21st-Century Addiction to Smartphones

When we watch a movie from, say, twenty years ago, it strikes us that both nothing and everything has changed. Apart from their slightly baggier clothes, the people look the same as us. But where are their phones? Compared to the recent past, the look of life today hasn't changed much, but thanks to the internet and even more so to smartphones, the feel has changed enormously. Most literary and cinematic predictions of the future got this exactly wrong, envisioning flamboyant aesthetic t...

1947 Film That Eerily Predicted How People Would Use Smartphones

This clip is from a 1947 French film about the imagined future of television called “Télévision œil de demain”. The film is based on a premise by science fiction author René Barjavel and directed by J.K. Raymond-Millet. It predicts not only handheld smartphone-like devices but also, with uncanny accuracy, the behavior that comes with them — like people walking around looking at screens, people on screens bumping into each other, oblivious screen users walking out in front of cars, etc. I mea...

Should you "hack" your sleep pattern?

A seemingly common trait of geniuses like Nikola Tesla and Leonardo da Vinci is that they operated (and excelled) on very few hours of sleep per night. BrainCraft's Vanessa Hill explains that while unorthodox sleep patterns may have worked for them, your mileage may vary. Attempting to sleep like a genius could "wreak havoc" on your brain and be detrimental to your health.There are three different types of sleep patterns: monophasic sleep (one chunk at night for a recommended 6-8 hours), biphasi...

How mysterious EV startup Nikola overtook Ford in one night — without selling a single car

If you hadn’t heard about Nikola, the startup that’s developing electric and hydrogen powered trucks, it recently went publicand is now valued at more than Ford, despite having no product. Here’s the lowdown. Before we get started, yes, like another electric vehicle maker Nikola is named after a certain Serbian-American inventor of the same name, Nikola Tesla to be exact. That parallel to Tesla is going to crop up on more than one occasion too, so take note. Nikola was founded in 2014, guided by...

20 things that were invented much earlier than you probably thought

Some products, especially those that use technology, seem like they were invented recently. However, many pieces of today's technology have been in development for decades. Vaccines seem like a relatively new medical innovation, but they have actually been around for over 200 years. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Though modern science and medicine have made great advancements in recent decades, many of their predecessors date back far earlier. Vaccines, for example, have ...

Nikola Tesla’s Grades from High School & University: A Fascinating Glimpse

In the history of science, few people got a rawer deal than Nikola Tesla. Cruelly cheated and overshadowed by Edison and Marconi (who patented the radio technology Tesla invented), the brilliant introvert didn’t stand a chance in the cutthroat business world in which his rivals moved with ease. Every biographer portrays Tesla as Edison’s perfect foil: the latter played the consummate showman and savvy patent hog, where Tesla was a reclusive mystic and, as one writer put it, “the world’s ...

Tesla isn't a car company, and it isn't a tech company — it's a new GE for the 21st century, and it's just getting started. Here's how it could dominate the global business world. (TSLA)

Tesla is already operating in the auto industry, the energy business, software, autonomous mobility, electric batteries, and residential solar. Tesla could move into numerous other enterprises, from healthcare to robotics — all industries that should be important and valuable over the next 80 years.

19 incredible things you never knew Thomas Edison invented

Thomas Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors of all time. He produced 1,093 patents and a trove of creations that helped shape modern history. That being said, he was falsely credited for some inventions, including the lightbulb, and much of his work never gained the recognition he had hoped for. From the precursor to the tattoo gun, to a phone that can contact the dead, here's a list of Edison's inventions you probably never knew about. Visit Business Insider's homepage for ...

Doctor Who's Latest Champions Invention With a Collection of Old Ideas

Glory to the Holy Wi-Fi Originator Nikola Tesla for an Electrifying Episode of ‘Doctor Who’

Doctor Who is a show of sky-highs and deep lows, and baby, we’re back up in the air again. After last week’s episode wasted a fantastically creepy monster design and an ambitious premise, Doctor Who is back to the well trod historical. Doctor Who has had an unusual history with its historical episodes — early seasons of the Classic series infusing as little sci-fi elements as possible, while the Doctor Who revival went full-tilt on “Shakespeare battles alien witches,” etc. In their inaugural se...

Name in the news: Cybertruck

On November 21, eleven days before Cyber Monday, Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk introduced his company’s newest vehicle: a pickup truck with an otherworldly, polygonal “exoskeleton”—what the rest of the autosphere calls a chassis—and a crashingly pedestrian name: Cybertruck.   Yes, that is the actual logo. On Twitter, Christian Wilkie said the Cybertruck wordmark “could only be improved with the ‘3000’ suffix.”   A family resemblance? {The Cyberpunk 2077 game will be released i...

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Teach Inventing To Kids?

dryriver writes: Everybody seems to think these days that kids desperately need to learn how to code when they turn six years old. But this ignores a glaring fact -- the biggest shortage in the future labor market is not people who can code competently in Python, Java or C++, it is people who can actually discover or invent completely new and better ways of doing things, whether this is in CS, Physics, Chemistry, Biology or other fields. If you look at the history of great inventors, the last tr...

Nikola Tesla Accurately Predicted the Rise of the Internet & Smart Phone in 1926

Certain cult historical figures have served as prescient avatars for the techno-visionaries of the digital age. Where the altruistic utopian designs of Buckminster Fuller provided an ideal for the first wave of Silicon Valley pioneers (a group including computer scientist and philosopher Jaron Lanier and Wired editor Kevin Kelly), later entrepreneurs have hewn closer to the principles of brilliant scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla, who believed, as he told Liberty magazine in 1935, that “we s...

AT&T Exec Predicted the Smartphone in 1953

In an April 1953 newspaper article in the Tacoma News Tribune, Mark Sullivan made an uncannily accurate prediction about the future of the telephone. In its final development, the telephone will be carried about by the individual, perhaps as we carry a watch today. It probably will require no dial or equivalent, and I think the users will be able to see each other, if they want, as they talk. The curious use of the word “users” made me think this was a hoax, but Snopes says it’s genuine. Any...
