Tesla predicted a great many things about the future and much of it turned out to be spot on.

Smithsonian Magazine said:

In the 1930s journalists from publications like the New York Times and Time magazine would regularly visit Nikola Tesla at his home on the 20th floor of the Hotel Governor Clinton in Manhattan. There the elderly Tesla would regale them with stories of his early days as an inventor and often opined about what was in store for the future.

Tesla was an intelligent man but I don't think coffee, tea and tobacco use will go away all together at least not for a very long time.  We still spend more on war than education.

He managed to light up a room without electricity, but died before telling anyone how he did it, nor did he leave any notes about it. He was a fascinating man.

Tesla was something special, sadly didn't fit into our nasty system because he was too good for it.

If it was up to Tesla we would all have free energy.

'' Often
regarded as one of the foremost
visionaries of his time, Tesla
foresaw a future in which scientific
advancement would take
precedence in society over war and
politics, natural food and clean air
would be more greatly valued''
.

The powers that be during Tesla's days did not want anything they couldn't put a price on, so when it came to free energy...that flew out the door right away...yes, the world would have benefited from this visionaries inventions. Unfortunately, it is the elite and a few corporate giants that will continue to put stops to some of men's greatest inventions, all due to greed and power.

Believe what you want and I'll believe whatever I want...it's an open field, and
everyone is given a chance at making a home run...

Tesla doesn't nearly get the credit he deserves, true visionary.

A true genius and visionary, he was the future!   His life had a very sad ending.  The world was just  not ready for free energy because of corporate politics of greed.   His projects were not embraced as well as they should have been and the conspiracy people back then accused him of the "death ray" and being an ally to the Germans and destroyed his "treasonous"  energy transmission towers.  He had many unpublished works that were put into a museums and in his home country under lock and key.  Maybe in another hundred years they will come out and he will be appreciated for the visionary he was :)
