Sorry. I was not impressed.
If someone has something that will actually create more energy than is put into it, they need to post the details of how it works........
or, post details of how to build said something!
How could the MIB, PTB, oil companies or whoever stop that?
Me thinks they are mostly charlatans and snake oil salesmen.
p.s. I don't think these things are not possible, just like to see some proof.

This is what we are dealing with, people who see the populous as cattle and worse.
Reproduced is an old article called; The Inventor Who Smashed His Own Invention:
'Nikola Tesla - discoverer of the rotating magnetic field, which is the basis for AC electric current - once demolished one of his inventions to prevent disaster.
In the 1890s, Tesla speculated about uses for resonance, the physical principle by which a high note from a soprano can shatter a glass. He invented a tiny oscillator that could produce vibrations with different frequencies and tested it on a half-constructed building. The girders trembled like a tree in a high wind.
Later, in his New York lab, Tesla fastened the machine to a pole and turned it on. The vibrations reached the local police station, where the furniture began dancing. Guessing that the source was the inventor, the police ran to the lab to find Tesla smashing his machine (with a sledgehammer). It was the only way to stop the vibrations.
Tesla also postulated that by carefully timing the explosions, he could create waves of increasing force capable of shattering the earth. Scientists of the day denied the possibility.'
(The above describes the only known earthquake to strike New York; and it was produced by Tesla.)
A photomontage from The World Today illustrated Tesla's theory that the Earth itself could be 'split open like an apple' by applying the principle of mechanical resonance.
The ideas you can't fathom...it's really quite simple and you actually answered yourself in the same comments. It comes down to the whole monopoly you speak of. Most companies...especially everything related to oil, already have a monopoly. And in a way so does every big company that uses oil in it's products. The automotive industry is the biggest example. Electric cars were around a hundred years ago but why did it never go mainstream... because a monopoly could be had with very little cost involved in setting it up. Why has the electric car taken a hundred years to near reality... Because the big guys already have a monopoly and they don't want to screw with something that is working so good. Why rebuild an entire industry and all the companies that follow on the downside/aftermarket and retrofit everything that already exists to try to build a monopoly... when they already have it. Why change the infrastructure that the entire modern world is built around for the sake of making it new and different. Over the years things have progressed in the direction of those changes but it has come because of the ultimate need to change, because of our environment. If the pressures of lobbyists and you and me for a cleaner world and those types of ideas were not there, we wouldn't be going in the direction of change that we see happening now. If someone is successful in creating a device that can produce infinitesimal amounts of energy and the only cost associated with making that a reality is simply the cost of building that device, the release of that technology would instantly cause the big companies to follow suit.

What i cannot fathom is, if there are so many readily available and practical "free" energy options available, (I watched the video and noted there are hundreds of similar videos on the topic,and I've seen lots of them before, including some that have been tested and debunked for practical application by various documentaries) why doesn't a huge corporation develop and patent the rights to said technology and begin to manufacture the necessary components?
Lets face it if everyone on the planet is going to build one of the many multi component "generators" that can produce free energy surely there would be a highly and never ending market for part, repairs, manufacture of parts, etc for said devices.
Take solar and Wind power for example, YES the energy harnessed is free.But the components for creating the conductors are rather costly, and someone is making a lot of money from it.
The potential market created for such devices would surely be worth cornering.And it would not be a limited market at all.To start with parts would be needed constantly and if a company patents the technology they can have a monopoly on the product and charge, whatever they want for parts, service etc.
Having seen the video i note that his creation takes a lot of space up to light one bulb, he gives us no indication of how long the bulb will stay lit.
Can we see the type of system he must surely use to power his entire home? What he's not? WHY NOT if his free power works why show us one light bulb? WHY NOT A WHOLE HOME??
I have seen at several museums an exercise bike hooked up to a light bulb and you pedal until the light comes on.Yes its a fun little experiment to use your own pedal power to light a globe, but what is the practical application of this in an urban scenario? ITS just not viable.
I also wonder why we only get to see him drive his car a few meters.He does not seem to reach great speed.I would like to see him do a few KM or so around a racetrack with a standard petrol or hybrid or electric car that is available on the market today. To compare all aspect of performance and then a price breakdown before i could CONSIDER his alternative as a viable one.
