Amazing Video- Electricity from Only Water and 4 Buckets

This experiment is very interesting it shows that electricity is being generated from the flow of water through metal buckets without touching the sides of the buckets. The water also fans out when the electricity is about to discharge. I know that if the water flow were to be slowed down you would see a larger discharge, but you would not be able to see the water fanning out before electrical discharge.

He should try to use the electricity to power a pump so that the system becomes a cycle.
Although maybe the energy generated would be the same amount needed to pump the water back...

It reminds me of this guys work:

www.lightnet.co.uk...

Victor Schauberg.

And the device in the video is also very similar to something called "Kelvins thuderstorm."


It is possible to build a very simple high-voltage generator which has no moving parts and is powered by the energy of falling water. By dribbling water through some old soup cans, several thousand volts magically appear. The magic lies in the fact that water (as well as everything else!) is made of vast quantities of positive and negative electric charge in perfect balance. It's not too hard to cause an imbalance. Water normally has zero net electrical charge because it contains equal and opposite charges. "Kelvin's Thunderstorm" is a gravity-powered charge un-canceller.

It would be good to try to reproduce the experiment.


Interesting thread!


Edit:I found a YT video of a "kelvin thunderstorm:

Nice post.

Never knew it was possible.

That would turn some heads as a science project ( A+ ).

Wouldn't this explain lightning/rain storms pretty well?

The part at 4:35 where he puts his microphone near the bucket and you hear the water slow down and then the thump of the shock just made me think of miniature lightning...

If this works,it could be an endless source of power to anyone with running water nearby.
All you got to do is,connect those spark points to some big ol battery/capacitor bank and off you go.Free power...

Although I am not sure if this idea works exactly as its presented to us in th YT vid,running water does have the potential to generate electrical energy.

Pretty much anything that moves has the potential to generate electricity.

Ahh,the benefits of living in the electromagnetic universe....

I think the cans are acting as sort of a capacitor. Still water can yield current as well. I made this to light a led a while back to see if it works. Just regular tap water, copper, and galvanized wire.

Current is very low though so no powering your house with this

I was thinking that if you lined your rain gutters with some copper and galvanized strips, you could have free power for your christmas lights.

I think it has something to do with the water molecules, which are slightly magnetic, are inducing a electromagnetic force on the tin cans and as it falls changes polarity and hits the bucket and transfers the charge. Like magnets that induce an electromagnetic force on a conductor to create a current in a generator. The EMF builds up until the potential is enough to jump across the air gap and cause a spark.

To improve the efficiency, what I would try is to replace the tin cans with coils of copper wire.

Truly amazing I wonder waht Tesla would have done with this knowledge...

Thats a cool project Freezer!
I did something similar by using trees and the ground connected by wires.
VEry low current though,but it did register on the multimeter.
