Inventor Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943) developed many new electrical components or improved the existing electrical components. Nikola Tesla often did so in a radical way, such as the alternator, the transformer, the induction motor, the fluorescent tube, the principle of the radio and the principle of wireless energy transfer (the Tesla effect). Later in life, he developed outside the box and worked on a 'deadly beam', an earthquake machine, anti-gravity and an alien contact device. In 1960, the SI unit of magnetic flux density and magnetic polarization was named after Tesla, the Tesla (T).
