Historical Replicas of the Worlds’s Greatest Technological Inventions

A number of fully functional historical replicas of Nikola Tesla’s famous inventions were produced for the Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan, the Croatian History Museum and the Technical Museum in Zagreb. Some exhibits made by our company were part of the travelling exhibitions that took place around Europe and were exhibited at various museums and institutions in places such as Madrid, Bratislava, Helsinki, Vienna and even in UNESCO headquarters. Furthermore, various authentic reproductions of greatest technological inventions were produced for the Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul, Korea.

  • We produce high quality museum replicas and historical reproductions for various museums, exhibitions and private collections using modern materials and production technologies in a way that provides authenticity on both technical and aesthetic level.

Museum replicas of various historical technological inventions produced for Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul, South Korea


Bell’s First Telephone

Tesla’s Induction Motor

Faraday’s Induction Exp.


Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone in 1876. It was the first electrical device to ever transmit speech sounds at a distance in an intelligible way.

This replica is based on Bell’s original notes and later reconstructions. While it is crude in its appearance in the same way as was the original it could be modified and produced entirely functional. It is exhibited in the Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul.

Nikola Tesla’s first patent regarding AC induction motor was granted in 1888. This motor is a working replica of the Tesla’s original 2-phase induction motor. He made this working model motor to illustrate the claims in his patents.

Michael Faraday conducted experiments using an iron ring to which he wound up two separate coils of copper wire. Faraday in this experiment used a large electrical battery to energise one coil and he connected a galvanometer to the other coil. In 1831 he detected a brief movement of the galvanometer at the moment he connected and disconnected the battery, proving that electrical energy can be transmitted across space by use of mutual magnetic induction. He also proved that the voltage levels can be transformed.


Volta Battery

Davy’s Arc Lamp

Swan’s Lamp


Alessandro Volta invented this earliest form of battery in 1799. It consists of alternating layers of zinc and copper disks separated by a thick layer of paper. When the pile is immersed into appropriate electrolyte like sulphuric acid it generates electrical potential and consequent electrical current. It is a replica of voltaic pile that Alessandro Volta presented to Michael Faraday in 1814 during his visit to Milan, Italy.

This replica is designed so that it could be made entirely functional. It is exhibited in the Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul.

Sir Humphry Davy was a chemist who invented the very first electrical lighting lamp in 1809. He used carbon rods between which a strong electrical current produces an electrical arc emitting bright white light that is sufficient enough for practical uses.

This is a non-functional replica of the arc lamp that was put into service in the South Foreland Lighthouse off the Kent coast in 1858. It was designed by a British engineer Frederic Hale Holmes. It is exhibited in the Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul.

Sir Joseph Wilson Swan was a British physicist and chemist who demonstrated a working light bulb during a lecture in Newcastle in 1878. Swan’s lamp consisted of enclosed glass bulb from which air was evacuated, platinum leads and thick carbon rod as a light emitting element.

This replica is designed to be made entirely functional with the addition of appropriate power supply. It is exhibited in the Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul.


 

Museum replicas of various Tesla technologies produced for Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan, Croatia

Classic Tesla Coil Functional Replica

A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891, which is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. This working replica of the Tesla coil is exhibited in Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan, Croatia.

Tesla’s Egg of Columbus Functional Replica

Tesla first demonstrated Egg of Columbus in 1893 at the World’s Columbian Exposition. We produced two working replicas of the Tesla’s Egg of Columbus, largest in the world both in their size and weight. They are exhibited at the Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan and in Croatian History Museum in Zagreb.
