Electrical Experimenter (04:07) November 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The man was seated near the apparatus solely for the purpose of showing the relative size of the high frequency coil. The photograph was obtained by double exposure; that is, the plate was exposed with the man, while the apparatus was not in operation; then he was removed and another exposure made of the sparks on the same plate, as it would not be very healthy for anyone to be there when the experiment was conducted."
This is the November 1916 issue of Electrical Experimenter from November 1916. The cover story is “Lightning Made to Order,” reviewing some of the work of Nikola Tesla. Also included is a Baron Münchhausen story entitled “How the Martian Canals Are Built” and a construction project to build a radio-controlled robotic dog, 1916-style.
