On 10 July 1856, Nikola Tesla was born. His birthday is now commemorated around the world as Nikola Tesla Day, celebrating this fascinating figure of science and technology, and one of our lasting sources of inspiration.
Nikola Tesla's place of birth
We've already blogged about Nikola Tesla and why his pictures and visionary quotes adorn several of our offices – and not only offices. We can relate to his origins, his creativity, free spirit and the endless aspiration to new challenges. His inventions and projects made the modern world possible, and it's safe to say nothing of what we do would be possible without him.

Just like the entire mobile tech community, we're indebted to Nikola Tesla and his inventions, ahead of his time and out of this world – for his contemporaries, as well as for us. So when you snap and post that selfie today, think of this great man and honour his memory; learn more about his life and the impact of his inventions. Maybe you'll be inspired to take up programming, electrical engineering or just science fiction writing. It's the least you could do for him on his birthday.
