I heard that in the 1900's Nikola Tesla patented specific components of a "coil for elctro magnets" using the Mobius strip. This was part of his design to globally transmit electricity without wires.

Does anyone know what, if any, developments have been made in technology using the Mobius strip and what Tesla might have been trying to do with one?

It was quite hard to read and try to extrapolate!  I think the "spiral" he refers to is the Mobius strip?  Has anyone worked through this patent?

I'm getting there. Only about another five million or so to go.

If I remember right he made his patents very obfuscate. He didn't want the competition to get into the game.

But this 'Mobius strip'?
Where do that one come from?
Don't remember reading about that with Tesla.

I have a link here to a lot of other links about him.

Re-Checking my links only a few of them works, da*n that internet :)
A library it's not.

(Well, most seem to work. I'll leave it as is :)

He was weird, but cool :)

That period seemed to have created so many imaginative guys and gals.
I'm getting jealous here, wonder what people will remember - 2000 + for?
The death of our ecosystem? Idiots starting new religious/race wars?
Hope not.

Anyone that think that we will grow up some day?
