U.S. physicist visualized the idea of SMS in 1909

Texting may be a boon in today's world, but the idea was visualised more than a century ago. And, it was a original American physicist who had predict about the portable messaging service, similar to the SMS, via a hand-held tool in the 'Popular Mechanics' magazine in 1909, its Technology Editor Seth Porges has claimed.

Nikola Tesla, the physicist and a mechanical engineer, whose name lives on at the electric car maker Tesla Motors, saw wireless power as the only way to make electricity thrive, according to Porges.

Telsa wrote in the magazine that one day it'd be likely to 'transmit wireless messages' all over the world and imagined that such a hand-held device would be simple to use and one day everyone in the world would communicate to friends using it, Porges said.

This would usher in a new era of technology, Telsa wrote in the publication. Nikola Tesla was talented to predict technology which is still in its nascent forms a hundred years later. He talked a lot about his other huge passion, which was wireless power.

It has taken a little longer to get off the ground, but work on attractive wireless conductive transmission is going on right now in investigate centres at MIT and Intel and other places, Every day Telegraph quoted Porges as saying.

Porges disclosed Tesla's forecast at a presentation, '108 years of futurism' to industry information in New York.

The magazine, which has nine international edition that is read by millions, has been trying to imagine how the world will look in future years since it was first published in January 1902.
