It does look familiar, doesn’t it?
Is it possible Nikola Tesla was hacking around with a Blackberry prototype in 1909? That’s the buzz in articles from such diverse sources as the UK Telegraph and the Huffington Post. And, in an even odder twist than having a Blackberry in 1909, the Huffington Post links to and credits Foxnews.com – has that ever happened before?
You do realize there is a reason this website is in BLACK?
Tesla wrote this article in the October 1909 edition of Popular Mechanics ( pages 476-477, excerpted from the New York Times.)
So is that picture really a pre-Blackberry Blackberry in 1909?
Nah, not really.
It’s one of Tesla’s mechanical oscillators. I was just trying to start a little BlackBerry conspiracy theory.
What Tesla did was way more impressive then having a Blackberry in 1909.
