Nikola Tesla's patents for aircraft, ships, railways, autos, and more

Electric Circuit Controller

Tesla did some very early work in Electric Circuit Controllers. In this first of two designs, he uses a rotating spindle that rapidly makes and breaks an electric circuit. He uses a liquid conductor and a solid conductor to achieve the circuit. This patent was the last in a series of patents based on this design.
