According to legend, Tesla was born precisely at midnight during an electrical storm, to a Serbian family in the village of Smiljan near Gospi?, in the Lika region of the Croatian Krajina in Military Frontier (part of the Austrian Empire), in the present-day Croatia. Those pictures will show you what people can do now because of Tesla’s invention. Literally, they are playing with electricity, creates some shapes and it looks very dangerous.
Tesla then studied electrical engineering at the Austrian Polytechnic in Graz (1875). While there, he studied the uses of alternating current. Some sources say he received Baccalaureate degrees from the university at Graz.However, the university says that he did not receive a degree and did not continue beyond the first semester of his third year, during which he stopped attending lectures.Others have stated that he was discharged without a degree for nonpayment of his tuition for the first semester of his junior year.According to a college roommate, he did not graduate.
Tesla engaged in reading many works, memorizing complete books. He had a photographic memory.Tesla related in his autobiography that he experienced detailed moments of inspiration. During his early life, Tesla was stricken with illness time and time again. He suffered a peculiar affliction in which blinding flashes of light would appear before his eyes, often accompanied by hallucinations. Much of the time the visions were linked to a word or idea he might have come across; just by hearing the name of an item, he would involuntarily envision it in realistic detail. Modern-day synesthetes report similar symptoms. Tesla would visualise an invention in his brain in precise form before moving to the construction stage; a technique sometimes known as picture thinking. Tesla also often had flashbacks to events that had happened previously in his life; this began to happen during childhood.
