Tesla is better than Edison
Debate Rounds (3)
Edison was a thinker, a tinkerer
He had many important inventions that helped people (lightbulb) his inventions were cheap and could be used by poor families
He also invented modern innovation
NiKola Tesla was haughty and cared too much about fashion. His great distrust of other people lead to him dying penniless
Edison was a tinkerer and brought to light the idea of innovation, but for purely the reasons of capital gain. If it was not for Edison's workshop workforce then this air of innovation would not be so strong. Edison hired workers, Tesla being one of them, to work for him and invent and innovate. This is where a majority of his patents came from. They came from the hard work of other people.
Edison and Tesla were also both in a race with each other to create a useful form of electricity. What was created in the end was Edison's AC and Tesla's DC. This made Edison upset that Tesla created a form of electrical current that was better than his. To deter people putting favor to DC, Edison held a public demonstration where he electrocuted zoo animals using DC.
Tesla was also asked to help with the exhibitions at the Chicago Worlds Fair. Tesla used his very own light bulbs to light up the fair. To light the bulbs, Tesla used his own form of electrical energy, using a power source that was miles away, and without any wires. This was not only an accomplishment that Edison could not create, but has not been reproduced since.
Not only were Tesla's ideas miles ahead of Edison's, but Edison was also an unkind, and rude individual.
