Serbian-American Nikola Tesla (Smiljan, 1856-New York, 1943) is a fundamental actor in the history of progress. He died and was forgotten until the beginning of the 21st century. His discoveries, inventions, contributions and predictions allowed the development of the electric civilisation that we still live in. Tesla devised alternate current and the radio, he was also a pioneer in visionary technologies such as robotics, vertical take-off planes, low consumption lamps, alternative energies or wireless electricity…

The App “Teslapedia”, developed by Unit Experimental in collaboration with Telefónica Foundation and Turner publishing house allows the user to access and enjoy the interactive contents of the book. Through augmented reality, the user can visualise additional contents, such as interactive notebooks, videos and 3D animations.
