Nikola Tesla was convinced that he could build power transmission towers to provide free wireless electricity for the entire planet, and he began building a demonstration tower in 1901. Wardenclyffe Tower was intended to transmit communications and power. However, JP Morgan withdrew his funding, and the tower was never completed.


This video shows a demonstration of the high voltage wireless transmission Tesla was experimenting with. The demonstration is at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
