Nikola Tesla Predicted the Cell Phone in 1909

Posted By: Xeno Oct•27•2010

Spencer – In this article written in the New York Times in 1909 and published in Popular Mechanic, Nikola Tesla speaks of a device that “will only be necessary to carry an inexpensive instrument no bigger than a watch, which will enable its bearer to hear anywhere on sea or land for distances of thousands of miles.” And that “””It will soon be possible, for instance, for a business man in New York to dictate instructions and have them appear in type in London or elsewhere. He will be able to call from his desk and talk with any telephone subscriber in the world.”

Sounds a bit familiar now, doesn’t it?
