A few years back I wrote about Nicola Tesla and his Wardenclyffe Tower building. That site is now for sale and Matthew Inman is trying to raise the money to buy the site and to start a museum dedicated to Tesla. If there is one thing you need to do today that is donate to this fund!
To see why this is such a good idea go to the article written by Matthew. Then go donate.
Update: As of a few days ago they reached their target to buy the site but there are still some days to go and they need all the money they can get to get the museum up and running. (via)
What if our buildings could harvest power from the air, not wind or solar but literally out of thin air? Its not as crazy as it first sounds with cities literally spewing out electromagnetic radiation from TV, Radio, and Mobile phones constantly. That’s just what Nokia is doing right now, actively researching this for future generations of Mobile phones.
It’s also not a new idea, in fact the first station to harvest the power from the atmosphere has already been built and now stands derelict in a plot on Long Island for sale for $1.6 million. (map)
