Check Out Who Wins The War Of Currents. Edison Or Tesla?
In the history of science, we've read about tons of inventors who came and changed the world with their inventions. But nothing in this world can ever be concluded without number of controversies associated with it. And today, we are addressing one such controversy. A controversy that everyone wants an answer of! Who was better? Who Wins The War Of Currents. Edison Or Tesla?
Well it'll be unfair to pick one randomly as both of them are regarded geniuses. So let us see some facts about them and then decide. "They're different inventors, but you can't really say one is greater, because American society needs some Edisons and it needs some Teslas" said W. Bernard Carlson, the author of "Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age". Check out the pages ahead to see who was better...
#2 Most Brilliant
It is difficult to decide who was more brilliant than the other as both of them have invented tons of things. Tesla, though, had an eidetic memory, which meant he could very precisely recall images and objects. This enabled him to accurately visualize intricate 3D objects, and as a result, he could build working prototypes using few preliminary drawings. "He really worked out his inventions in his imagination," Carlson told Live Science. Let's talk about Edison Now.
"If you were going to the laboratory and watch him at work, you'd find he'd have stuff all over the bench: wires and coils and various parts of inventions," Carlson said. In the end, however, Edison held 1,093 patents, according to the Thomas Edison National Historic Park. Tesla garnered less than 300 worldwide, according to a study published in 2006 at the Sixth International Symposium of Nikola Tesla. So Edison definitely wins the battle of patents. But when it's about memory, there's no one better than Tesla. To see the final conclusion, check out the next page!
#1 The Conclusion
Let's discuss who had a bigger impact on science. Edison's enduring legacy isn't a specific patent or technology, but his invention factories, which divided the innovation process into small tasks that were carried out by legions of workers, DeGraaf said. For instance, Edison got the idea for a moving picture camera, or kinetoscope from a talk by photographer Edward Muybridge, but then left most of the experimentation and prototyping to his assistant William Dickson and others. "He invents modern innovation as we know it," DeGraaf said.
On the other hand, Tesla's inventions are the backbone of modern power and communication systems, but he faded into obscurity later in the 20th century, when most of his inventions were lost to history. And despite his many patents and innovations, Tesla was destitute when he died in 1943.
Now after knowing all this, it becomes really difficult to choose one of them. What I believe is that, Practically, you could definitely choose Edison's work over Tesla's but emotionally, you can never rate Tesla any less than any other genius in the world. Maybe, Tesla wasn't a good marketer as Edison but he was equally brilliant when it comes to science! The number of people following Tesla in this modern age are far more than the ones who follow Edison. So whom do you follow? Who according to you was better?
