No wonder it has been a known secret for ages.
The Searl Effect Generator developed in the 1960s is allegedly capable of cheaply and safely producing electricity without fuel, pollution, friction, or noise. Anti-gravity effects also involved.
Now a mock-up version has been produced demonstrating some of the core principles.
"Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive world's machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other fuels."
On the occasion of Tesla's 75th birthday, he was featured on the 20 July 1931 cover of Time Magazine. Further accolades came his way, but financial setbacks prevented continued scientific work. He moved from the Waldorf around 1933 to the Hotel New Yorker, greatly in need of the $7200 stipend later paid to him by the Tesla Institute in Yugoslavia, in honor of "the greatest inventive genius of all time". He died alone in the hotel 7 January 1943, and was found two days later by a maid. The funeral was attended by thousands; he was cremated and his ashes encased in a golden sphere. He left no will, but had verbally bequeathed all of his papers and effects to Yugoslavia, where a Nikola Tesla Museum was begun in 1952. His ashes were transported to the Museum in 1957, where the sphere remains on display.
When Tesla's nephew, a minor Yugoslavian diplomat, arrived at the hotel to see to his uncle's effects, he found that many of Tesla's papers were missing. The F.B.I. was called in, and because World War II was in progress, the U.S. government took custody of everything: two truckloads from the hotel, and dozens of barrels from storage elsewhere. A post-war U.S. Army particle beam weapon project made use of 'copies of Tesla's papers', but after discontinuation of testing, the papers were again lost. The papers that were finally released to the Museum in 1952 were incomplete.
