Back in May we posted about a Kickstarter project by entrepreneur Dorrian Porter to erect a statue of Nikola Tesla in Palo Alto, California. After the success of the Kickstarter project, Porter commissioned artist Terry Guyer to sculpt the statue. The statue (complete with Wi-Fi) is scheduled to be unveiled in Palo Alto tomorrow, December 7, 2013.

UPDATE – Here’s a video of the live stream from the statue unveiling shot by Eddie Codel.
