It's exactly 70 years ago this day that one of the greatest minds of humanity, Nikola Tesla died in room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel. The poster boy for geeks before geeks even existed, inventor of the future and a man who saw into the world of physics better than ordinary mortals, Tesla was all of those things, and more.
Tesla's tireless dedication to invention and innovation, his curiosity combined with an unwavering work ethic, and his impact on the modern age of humanity are constant inspiration for scientists, engineers and visionaries across the globe. And for Infobip too.
Several of our offices are adorned with Tesla's portraits and quotes, reminding us at all times what hard work and ingenuity can achieve. His humble roots remind us of our own, and his gaze filled with curiosity and idea inspires us to go and look further, trust our gut and do things no-one thinks are possible.
Indeed, he saw things others couldn't and wouldn't imagine, and this quote sums it up perhaps the best:
Within a few years a simple and inexpensive device, readily carried about, will enable one to receive on land or sea the principal news, to hear a speech, a lecture, a song, or play of a musical instrument conveyed from any other region of the globe.
