You get what you pay for. Of course it's free energy. The reason it's free is because it is so unreliable. If you want something that works when you need it and when you want it sorry but you will have to pay for it.
People years ago weren't brainwashed by political correctness. It isn't that they couldn't comprehend wind energy. It has been around for centuries it's that they were smart enough to know they needed something more reliable.
Now I know a lot of you will reply saying "hey maaan, of course you scientists have got things wrong" and I accept that our model of the way the universe needs a lot of improvement, but it's going to take a lot more than a desk fan to throw away everything I know and replace it with who knows what? Does this guy even have any coherent theories?
I did a spectral analysis of the audio from the demonstration. Here is a spectrogram for ~3 minutes of the video while the machine is running. The machine slows down over the course of the demonstration by about 3.3%.

I know, you don't have to tell me. Once we have several of them built, we can use the free energy from them to power a factory and build more of them. Oh, wait a second, they can't put out enough energy to run the machines needed to build... Well, it's free energy what did you expect. There's an old adage, "nothing is free". It also applies to science and physics.

Actually, I know the guy who made this video and he was very much impressed with what he saw that day. Me too for that matter because I never saw a working concept before.
Problem with this thing though, is that the inventor only took part of the machine apart and nobody (except for him) seems to know exactly how this thing works.
If the technology is not completely shared and reproduced by somebody else, it is just a very complicated and expensive fan.

Desk fan? See what you did there?
You belittled the invention to lessen its importance while trying to raise the importance of not throwing away everything you know. If scientists couldn't entertain a concept without having to accept it then we would never discover anything new unless it branched from previously accepted theory.

Have you considered other variables?
Such as the video wasn't continuous, the guy filming the demo changed audio settings or other parameters, the machines bearings loosened up, reducing or changing the audio.
The video was edited to fit with Youtube duration limits, i heard that they had ran it for 10 minutes, then one of the people asked for another ten minutes running time, then who knows how long it ran after that before they stopped it to open it up?
No, that's not exactly right. I said that it would take more than some guy with a desk fan (because that's what we saw in the video)

Oh come on mate, that is not what we saw, and you know it.
The fan was on there to demonstrate the thing can produce power, illustrate that the shaft was spinning and continue to spin against the resistive force of the air.
Not exactly a desk fan.
