Hi I’m JD Houvener and I’m the host of the bolt today’s show were you the inventor and entrepreneur get your daily dose of inspiration to make the world a better place all right so we’re doing a two part series on one of my favorite inspirations today Elon Musk yesterday we talked about the SpaceX and his Falcon X and the huge rocket two just went up a couple weeks ago they don’t talk about his other little company he calls Tesla okay you all pray heard about Tesla right seeing the cars on the road one of the newest models they’re coming out with is the model 3 if you haven’t checked it out go online check out model 3 they’ve got this car unbelievably it’s gonna go 220 miles on a battery charge and it’s only $35,000 that’s insane right I mean how much did you just spend on your most recent vehicle so that’s your challenge today if you could actually make it work with your budget would you be willing to make the switch to an electric car yes No why why not put your comments below I want to hear about it okay so Tesla right Elon Musk is not necessarily related to Nikola ‘the nicholas tesla the inventor but i want to talk about nicholas Tesla he’s the inventor of over a hundred patents I had a heck of a time looking at all of his patents and thinking about which one I want to talk about today this one right here is actually his last invention not necessarily the most greatest but I was like wow this actually has some cool linkages to what we just talked about last week this is his invention it’s over it’s in the 1 million number okay filed in the 1800s it is a aerial apparatus we’re going vertical takeoff and horizontal travel okay if you look closely at this and this drawing you’ll get the idea that it works as a helicopter to launch vertically and then once you’re airborne the pilot flips over and is able to go horizontal I mean that’s pretty amazing right so Tesla was this brilliant mind and all of inventions most of his inventions were an electrical domain but the obviously thought out of the box basically a modern-day Leonardo da Vinci what’s important about Tesla and these types of attentions is that you can you can sort of as the inventor as an innovator right you can start out in one industry and sort of slowly transform and transcend into other industries what you’ve become is an innovator of sort of beyond your original technology you might cover initially might just be on mechanic and talk about gears and linkages and cogs but eventually you could be talking about in underwater applications a lot of different things that can come up as other inventors also bring the technology to the market your inventions have new applications so always keep your mind open for that kind of thing all right well again so I want you to consider electrical cars so I want you to think about Tesla appreciate the innovations he’s given share this video with a friend to help them get inspired to innovate and invent in the market have a great day everyone I’m your host JD Houvener the bold today show go big go bold [Music]
