Artificial Daylight

September 27th, 1899

Tesla has succeeded in making artificial daylight. In his laboratory he shows numerous balls of glass of different sizes which look like miniature suns. The balls are empty: there are no wires in them nor outside of them. They do not burn the fingers. The light does not hurt the eyes as sunlight and ordinary electric light do. A number of leading New York and Chicago photographers will have this artificial daylight supplied to their studios. Tesla says: “The reason I have chosen to introduce the new daylight to the photographers first is that I believe them to be the severest critics in the matter of light. If it succeeds with them a new light will succeed everywhere.” - N. Y. World.
