No. Guilliver's travels was fiction. We all know this.


Not really. It was supposedly some lost civilization that went down with atlantis... but maybe not....

Personally shadow, I'd edit the post of your sthat I am quoting and remove the details that I am not quoting here.

Lol So I meet my competition for geomagnetic propulsion. I'll give you the same advice as everyone else, don't post more than you already did about your device.
Also as proof that you came up with it first (proof that stands up in court) get a big manilla envelope enclose one complete set of plans drawings technical summary etc and mail it to yourself certified mail. Do not open this envelope when it comes back... leave it sealed in a desk drawer somewhere and if you are ever forced to enter court over the device the postmark on the sealed envelope proves the date you came up with the concept.


I told you that! Nyah!

See how quickly ideas get stolen when you talk about them? *laugh*

Seriously, though. Doing this is a great idea. It'll stand up in court as well as a copyright or patent, since it does have a date from a federal institution (the postal service). Once you have the envelope in your possession, feel free to talk about it all you want, and feel free to sue the pants off of anyone that steals your idea.

Just, a word of advice before any legal matters take place - if it appears that someone has stolen your idea, look into it to make sure that it is, in fact, YOUR idea. Many technologies have several different means of accomplishing. Just look at the diversity among computer printers: laser, inkjet, dot matrix, glorified typewriters, bubblejet, etc. They all print things, just using different means.

I'd look into getting a patent on yours....


I find it rather amusing that in the ads at the bottom of the page, they offer plans for the same personal hovercraft that a friend of mine and I built when we were 12. We also modified it, so it travelled faster and higher off the ground (we hovered at about 4-5 inches, and got a top speed around 25 mph). That thing was LOUD though.

As an aside, I've been thinking of trying to build another hovercraft from scratch, using the same old air-cushion tech that's been around for ages. I just want it to hover higher and move faster. Highway speeds should be nice - especially over water or rough terrain.

*looks around for that old Chevy 451 Hemi* Now where did I put that thing?

Ahhh ok, if it works off of some little known force then it could work. I think that the PTB seed movies/shows with tech thats already here/do-able, though in that way, its already done by some one else.

If you can get get it to lift 100lb (edit: to a hight of 1-2 feet) with 30watts in a second then you could also make free energy as well by lifting a weight and dropping it.

If I knew how to make it, I'd give it away to watch the govt and the oil comp.s sqirm and try to answer why they didn't do it first or why they didn't let it out. You could get rich just by writting a book and public speakings, because anyone sitting on this tech is just as bad as med comps holding onto the cure for the common cold or canser.

"free energy" patents are seldom approved.


I remember seeing a program about some old guy that made a device that generates free energy, and nobody would believe him etc, and he tried to get patents in the states but could not get any.

i cant remember the device. it was all covered up. all i remember is a series of car batteries and a rotating shaft...

this whole concept reminds me of this story.

Free energy is quite possible. Tesla designed it 100 years ago. I'm working on replicating it.

I refuse to pay for more than I have to.

i think when im finished im going to produce a novelty set of hoverboards from back to the future. i will need to get copywrites first though...

Any idea what the MSRP would be?

(Manufacturer's suggested retail price)

I might add i've already been told off once for talking about recruitment and management related things before so please dont ask anymore about retail etc because they remove it from the sci/tech page, but i can say this:

Well as you already know i'm not going to go into specifics as many people so thoughtfully suggested, but in relation to the board design (not cars or other vehicles that it could be applied to, the hoverboard i estimate so far:

Prototype: £350 - £450 (to account for all the tests, equipment, damages, exploding experiments etc)


Mass production building cost: £90 (as they can get the parts in bulk cheaply)


Retail price (past break even point) : £100 - £200 (i'm not sure what companies would sell them for so dont quote me on this!

As a side interest is there anyone else out there working on theirown hoverboard projects (not air powered *coff* sucks *coff* futurehorizons*

No. It wasn't. I majored in English lit a long time ago and we have letters from Swift and his other writings. Atlantis never entered the picture.

They might have used the same technology..........


Edit: MODs, that looked a lot bigger than it does in the little post box thingy............................Not a one-liner

since it would be best if you dident post any specifics, and we have gotten onto random side subjects, why dont we discuss what future aplications the teck would have? that would be fun...

ZERO G ROOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!

Well i suppose, as with many things the possibilities are endless.

you could PERHAPS, like you say apply it t a room......but it would have to just a floor of the devices as all the walls having them would most likely crush you in the centre


but yes think of it as those wind tunnel/fake skydiving things, only your levitating in a massive room in a super kickass way


yea cars.....spaceships.....floating toasters.......boats like the one on fifth element..........you name it!

Try never approved (aside from Tesla and Joseph Newman). It's all about the wording, I would use something along the lines of 'Energy efficient design' as opposed to 'Free Energy'. It's a clear red sign in the patent office.
