Al, i think if you employed a couple of big flux capacitors hooked in series then parallell, you might just get it to work
I imagine if you could build a flux capacitor about the size of California coupled with the Texas coil you could generate a bolt of lightning the could strike the moon .Talk about a mosquito zapper .

Al, looks like we are behind the curve.  Flux capacitors are available a Walmart, O'Reilly auto parts, etc.
Only $379.99.  Imagine running your sawmill on 1.2 gigawatts! Certainly lighter to carry around with you than a stone pyramid.  If your saw carriage hits 88 mph you might travel in time not to mention the hospital.
Looks like the only hang up is weapons grade plutonium, maybe a road trip the Hanford, WA to see if they sell that at the gift shop.

opps. Mr Fusion is also available for only $369.99.  No plutonium needed!!  Sawdust, banana peels,  daughters boyfriends truck keys, the possibilities are endless.

The human existence is set in a paradigm.  Those who control technology control all of us.  Life would be better if they did not suppress all of this technology. Think of the future now on all the technology we have then think back 10-20 years ago.  It was already invented. I was laughed at years ago when i said one day they will charge for water bottles in a store. I often think of what other inventions Nickolas Tesla had in his apartment he died alone in in NYC the govt came and cleaned him out after his death.  And dont look towards Hanford for a gift shop try going to Los Alamos.

A rare person trying to make a difference.

Interesting, he has some problems identified and has some solutions.

The pedal generator would no doubt be useful to people with out electricity, generators, and fuel.  The mechanical energy output of 1 human is roughly 140 watts per hour, his meters verify this.  1 gallon of gasoline contains 33,410 watts of electrical equivalent or 238 hrs pedaling. at 100% efficiency for both methods- ICE/generator/battery and pedal/generator/battery. That is roughly 1 1/2 months of 8 hr day/40 hr weeks of pedaling in just 1 gallon of gasoline.  Wrap you head around the implications!!!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gasoline_gallon_equivalent

Excluding lighting.The generation of pedal electricity to run anything is less efficient than direct coupling. 

http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2011/05/pedal-powered-farms-and-factories.html

Replacing our FF use while having our current US lifestyle is unlikely at best imo.  US housing sprawl thanks to cheap FF and car use may be viewed someday in the future as the biggest misallocation of resources in the history of the human race. The FF problem is too big, too long range for our society to tackle. Too many of us are busy buying things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like.  We want happy and that is OK, because looking at problems squarely in the face isn't always pleasant.  I fear that as things get tighter we will collectively, openly embrace some form of tyranny as a solution.

I would add 1 thing to his list which might make everything he is working on pointless.  The global storage of spent nuclear fuel rods.  Why did we ever make something that remains toxic for 10,000 years and needs constant cooling.  We might actually be the dumbest species on the planet

The possibilities are endless .For one harness the hot air coming out of Washington DC might be a starting point  .

To cut to the chase there is no free wood pile nor is there free electricity which is just a means of transmitting  power any way .746 watts of electrical power is one horse power ,34500 btu per hour  of steam is one HP .One big Clydesdale is probably is two HP, depending on how you look at it .I don't have the figures for mules and goats .

Then there was dear old Ben Franklin supposedly discovered electricity .He knew what would happen conned his  assistant  to go fly the kit .Might also add old Ben said where there is not good drinking there is not good living and beer is a gift from God who wants us to be happy. I'm not so sure the WCTL approved of Ben. I'll bet he had a tin foil hat and didn't tell anybody about it .

Here you go, a device powered by the energy in the radio waves from a WiFi router.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/12/08/iot_sensor_using_radio_waves/

Quote
It draws power from a Wi-Fi router via a tiny antenna, takes a reading, and then broadcasts it back, using a slightly different frequency to give the temperature figure.

Only downside is that the range of the prototype is only about 1" from the antenna.. But hey, it's a start.  :-\

Oh Lawdy we have so many radio waves floating around this planet .What happens if they mix and the third harmonics are the resonant frequency of a dentists drill .Think of all the toothaches by the zillions .

Garage doors will be going up and down on their own,lights going off and on, trains running backwards .Computers getting stuck on porn sites embarrassing aunt Lucy and grandmother .The entire world in an uproar  .Not good .

Actually, the garage door thing has already happened. 10 years ago the garage doors in one neighbourhood of Ottawa (capital of Canada) started randomly opening and closing. Reporters noticed that all the affected homes were within a certain radius of the US embassy. Just after the media contacted the embassy, the problem disappeared ::).

It seems that his has also happened near US military bases.

What a bunch of bull....
Energy can be neither created nor be destroyed, but it transforms from one form to another,
Period... The only free stuff is something like solar collecting or hydro and sooner or later
we will be taxed for that.

Collector and builder of many things.
I have a
machine shop
Wood work shop
And a Weld shop
And now a saw mill
and a bunch of new forum friends.

 None of it is actually free in the true sense of the word. Solar,wind,hydro ,even geothermal like they have in Iceland needs money to install and maintain .
.
As far as taxes if given the chance all those hot air generators in Washington D.C. would figure a way to tax the very air we breath. < oh don't get me started on that one :D

I say all energy is free. It is mankind that puts a price on it, All our energy comes from the sun and last I checked I could still step outside on a sunny day and be warmed by it.  Magnify it with a water lens and cook with it . Let it grow trees and I have a stored fuel produced by the sun. Leave it long enough you get oil. All without spending a dime. Back to the power generation in a pyramid. I think they are called noble gases, when a relatively small electrical charge is introduced they glow (argon, neon, ect...) Would not take much energy to make a cloud of gas provide some light in a dark pyramid. You could even do it with a simple electrostatic generator. We seem to be stuck on the levels of consumption of today and declare that any that can power a microwave is a waste of time or a hoax. Something to think about ( a radio transmitter. yes it consumes energy to transmit but is there any limit on the number of receivers that receive that energy.) Is it theoretically possible to receive more energy than is transmitted? Now eliminate the radio transmitter and just look at all the background radiation out there. Even just from our sun. Tell me again how you can claim energy is not free. This guy is building a collector of background radiation that has and always will be there. All those who still think energy isn't free can send me a $1 sun tax so you can still be right. I have enjoyed reading all the posts and look forward to harvesting some free energy with my new MP-32 sawmill.

Welcome to the forum. :)

What free energy are you powering your mill with?

Hi, Just found this, sorry the young fellow went away, would like to have heard about his finish build.

Like to know if he did build one or was laughed out of it.

Tesla kept talking about AC current when told it wouldn't work, today that is what the world uses. Tesla proved it work, went on to build the generators that produced it. We all have small ones in our cars.

Wonder if he'll drop back by.
