And he’s still a natty dresser. The list of Tesla’s experiments, inventions, and hundreds of patents reads like the plot points of an amazing science fiction movie: Electromagnetism, AC power, fluorescent lights, earthquake machine, x-rays, steam engine, helicopterplane,  radio waves from space… And, of course, the Tesla coil. Why collect books when you can collect the authors, and more? These dolls of famous figures, politicians, artists, theorists, scientists, and rebels make smart and clever gifts.
