“TOWER TO THE PEOPLE-Tesla’s Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues” 

Written by Joseph SIkorski & Michael Calomino

Nearly a century ago, Nikola Tesla dreamed of sending free wireless energy from a mysterious tower and lab on Long Island called Wardenclyffe. Deteriorating for decades, the remains of his great work were almost lost forever.

Until that is, a grateful world united to save it.

“TOWER TO THE PEOPLE- Tesla’s Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues” explores the genius inventor’s dream for Wardenclyffe, and shares the important story of how the last lab of Nikola Tesla was ultimately saved by various groups of dedicated people, using technology Tesla himself helped develop. From a local non-profit organization, to a popular web-comic known as ‘the Oatmeal’, to the generosity of people throughout the world, “TOWER TO THE PEOPLE-Tesla’s Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues” sheds light on the promising future of web-based philanthropic crowd-funding.

With an historic internet campaign to save his lab, a new feature film on the horizon, and growing international media attention, Nikola Tesla is transforming from cult-hero to mainstream icon. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of his life revolves around a small building in Shoreham, NY called Wardenclyffe. It is from here, Tesla had hoped to transmit free wireless energy to everyone on the globe. Destitute and without sponsors, Nikola Tesla was forced to abandon his dream. Almost a century later, a new generation picked up the torch, hoping to rescue the historic property from decay, and preserve it forever.

We invite you to experience the mysterious past, uplifting present, and exciting future of Nikola Tesla’s lab at Wardenclyffe. Featuring interviews with Penn Jillette, the Oatmeal’s Matt Inman, Peabody Award-Winner Jack Hitt and other distinguished guests. Music by Emmy-Nominated Composer Marina Arsenijevic. Directed by Joseph Sikorski.

A Brick for Nik: Forever Becoming a Part of the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe

Nikola Tesla’s last remaining laboratory was about to be scrapped and turned into a shopping center, thanks to all of his fans the world turned a wrong into a right and now, slowly but surely, Tesla’s laboratory will become the Tesla Science Center.  On August 15th 2012 theoatmeal.com did a comic piece on Nikola Tesla, “Why Nikola Tesla was the was the greatest geek who ever lived.”  There was a call for action to donate to the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe. On May 2nd 2013 Tesla’s laboratory was saved.  The property was bought for $850.00 and well over a million dollars has been donated.  Today the property is in good hands but the building and the land around the building needs to be updated.  The most recent campaign was started in September 2014 to raise more money.  “A Brick for Nik” is your chance to become a part of history and help keep Tesla’s memory alive.  A great idea to permenantly be a part of history and have your family name presented to the millions of people who will tread on the walkway leading to the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe in Shoreham, NY.
