What is the best invention of Nikola Tesla ?

Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors of all time with over 100 patents and 700 inventions was popular due tto his invention of the Tesla coil. Which by the way I regard as his best invention.

There are other inventions which are mind blowing, some of which are:

Tesla Turbine

Radio and Remote Control

Magnifying transmitter

Neon lamp

Shadow graph

Adams power plant transformer house

Induction motor.

This list happens to carry the most popular inventions by Nikola Tesla , however there are some of his inventions that was not actualized.

Nikola Tesla Patented the Earthquake Machine but never built it, he also patented some other amazing inventions like thought Camera, wireless energy, artificial tidal wave, electric powered supersonic airship, and death beam.

Personally to me, despite all his other inventions, the Tesla Coil Stands out to me. So I think that's his most awesome invention.


There are so many it is hard to chose so I will go with the best invention that not many people, even some Tesla fans, are aware of.

Many biographies that list Nikola Tesla's contributions have digital computers on the list but don't go into detail how exactly Tesla contributed to the field of digital computers. The reason is Tesla invented the AND logic gate in 1898 and got the patent for it in 1903. This came as a shock to many engineers who tried to patent the same concept decades later believing they were the first to invent the logic gate.

Nikola Tesla was a man with big ideas, if you couldn’t tell by the 300 patents to his name. Unfortunately, he was way ahead of his time and while a lot of his more elaborate ideas theoretically worked, they never really panned out. Still, while he never received the recognition of his chief rival Thomas Edison, the man was a brilliant inventor who gave the world some amazing and pioneering innovations. Here are some of the most incredible creations of Nikola Tesla.

The Tesla Coil

he Tesla coil was invented in 1891 and uses two coils, a primary and a secondary, with each coil having its own capacitor. A capacitor, like a battery, stores energy. The coils are connected to a spark gap, which is just open air where the spark can generate, and the result is that the Tesla Coil can shoot lightning bolts, send electric currents through the body and create electron winds.Tesla developed this innovation because he was obsessed with powering cities wirelessly. Today, the Tesla Coil is mostly used for entertainment and can be seen in places likescience centers and museums, and some elements of it are also used in radios. The importance of the Tesla Coil comes from the fact that it helped engineers understand the nature of electricity how to use it.
