Northern Imagination, a California-based company, have a Kickstarter page setup to get a statue of the famous innovator Nikola Tesla built-in Silicon Valley. Northern Imagination need to raise $123,000 in order to get the statue erected, and at the time of writing they had $80,269 pledged with 35 hours to go.




If they meet their funding goal, they would built a statue in Palo Alto, California and would make the statue depicting Tesla holding a lightbulb, demonstrating a wireless electricity concept. Better yet, the statue will double as a Wi-Fi hotspot and house a time capsule with predictions from Kickstarter backers that won't be opened for 30 years, all the way in the year 2043.
