    Engineer 3D Prints Amazing Wirelessly Powered Tesla Desk Lamp



    When we look back in history at some of the most notable inventors of the past several decades, one man stands near or at the top when it come to making contributions to technological development. That man is Nikola Tesla, and one of his mentors (and rivals) was another well-known inventor, named Thomas Edison. Tesla is responsible for patenting the design of the alternating current electricity supply system. If it were not for him, most of our electronic devices wouldn’t be here today as we know them.
    Sometimes I wonder what Tesla would have contributed to society if he were to still be alive today. What would he think about today’s super computers, smartphones, tablets, and LED lights? What would his reaction to 3D printing be, and how would he use it to aid in his inventions?
    Unfortunately Tesla passed away 72 years ago, and he never had the opportunity to see a 3D printer. However, one man, named David Choi, has taken some of Nikola Tesla’s contributions and combined them with 3D printing.
    “Nikola Tesla’s life and experiments have always intrigued me,” Choi tells 3DPrint.com. “After seeing Tesla Coils light up fluorescent and incandescent bulbs without wires, I was enthralled. I even named my cat Tesla.”


    Choi admits that he failed physics in high school, but then decided to pursue it on his own. He majored in physics at Wesleyan University but in his spare time he studied electronic design in his dorm room. He tells us that physics taught him the amazing power of resonance.
