July 10th is Nikola Tesla Day. In my opinion Nikola Tesla deserves a week, at least. The Serbian-American inventor and engineer, best known for developing the AC electrical supply system, is also responsible for wireless communication, the radio, neon lights, and remote control. He held over 300 patents worldwide for his various inventions.
Were Tesla alive today, he could have taken advantage of Davenport Public Library’s Patent and Trademark Resource Center. Designated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the Patent and Trademark Resource Center offers free services such as assistance in using patent and trademark information, training on USPTO databases, and hosting public seminars on intellectual property topics. For more information on the Patent and Trademark Resource Center, call 563-326-7832.
And since Nikola Tesla never recorded a power ballad (don’t doubt for a moment that he could have if he’d chosen to), here is Love Song by Tesla.
