The power may be "free" but the devices used to gather it are not. Robert Heinlein wrote a short story about the idea in 1940.

The story concerns the invention of "light panels" - devices which turn electrical power directly into light (similar to LEDs, invented in 1962). In the course of their discovery, the inventors also discover that these panels can also be used to derive power from light. In attempting to bring their discovery to market, they encounter the active opposition of the Power Syndicate, a conglomeration of energy-producing companies dedicated to preserving their monopoly on power production. Rather than trying to maintain a patent on their invention, the scientists then publicly release the scientific details of their discovery for a small royalty, allowing anyone to obtain their own power, and thus outwitting the Power Syndicate.

Gosh imagine cars in the future using these huge antennas on the roofs. Not very aerodynamic nor cool to look at, but hey, free gas!

From what i understand of tesla's energy project-

He identified that there was a natural current flowing through the earth. I believe its called the schuman resonance frequency or something like this.
what tesla did with his huge towers (wardenclyffe) was to pulse energy into the atmosphere. Much like what tesla did with his alternating current (AC) instead of sending electricity through the wires (DC) what he did was charge the wires and then hit them with packets of energy, sort of like if you hit the back of the train, the whole train would move foward. This was much more efficient than what edison wanted to do.

So he was using the same concept as this. He was pulsing energy into the atmosphere and then recouperating it. there is a difference between sending energy through a line and pulsing it through a line. It still required an energy input, so it wasnt exactly free energy. just an interesting way to send it out and recover it where needed.

I deff feel this is the way of the future!

Tesla's wireless system transmitted electrical energy through the Earth. He did not believe that transmission through the atmosphere was possible.

The prevailing misconception of the mechanism involved in the wireless transmission has been responsible for various unwarranted announcements which have misled the public and worked harm. By keeping steadily in mind that the transmission thru the earth is in every respect identical to that thru a straight wire, one will gain a clear understanding of the phenomena and will be able to judge correctly the merits of a new scheme.

He was wrong about the effciency of his system.

There is so much misunderstanding in most of the comments here that it would be quite a task to go into each misunderstanding.

So for those of you that really want to know what's going in this Tesla device and others I would direct your attention to,
peswiki.com , Check the Aviso device that does what Tesla was doing with upgraded solid state technology. The Phillipine government has validated the technology and the working model.
Aviso has released a set of clips describing this technology on the internet. You can get the web address on peswiki.com. You might also want to check the menu on the left side of their page for updates on other evolving technologies.

Another good source for tech minded interests is panaceauniversity.com. They supply info on how to build various ZPE devices.

The info is out there, you just have to look for it.

They also failed to mention that he devised his system using vacuum tubes, which are a rarity to find now days.

With an antennea you could never boost the current to such an impossible level needed to power a car. I don't know how Tesla did it, but I don't think he was transmitting power to be received by an antennea.

Did you know, you can place a mile of thin wire 6 inches above the ground, in a loop and receive a current from the " flow of energy" which surrounds the earth? I do not know how much or how powerful it would be, but this was shown be true by Faraday himself.

If you want to bring about a true revolution in automobile transportation, convience the government to lay a cable within the surface of all major highways. Then have the auto makers install a device on their electric cars which would pickup the magnetic field and transfer the induced current to power the car. At the same time you drive the current would recharge a battery for "off highway" driving.

By including devices to track your usage of this system, you could be billed monthly for this use and never have to stop at a gas station again. This usage fee could easily replace all the taxes now paid for the usage of gas to keep up the roadways and only eliminate the cost of the gas itself. This would also be a tremendous savings on the driving public and leave more disposable income for other things.

I will also be the first to say -- this will never happen.

It was shown to be possible at the 1939 World Fair in New York City and proptly forgotten. Some have tried to revive it but to no avail as yet, and I don't believe TPTB will ever allow it to happen.


i concur with your conclusion. long ago the independent vehicle / roadway system was chosen over a more mass transit approach found in Europe. and all that $$$ made from petroleum products, they aren't about to walk away from it.

My BS detector went up right away too. I like Tesla and think he was onto more than anyone about what could be done with electricity and other inventions, but I am not buying that story. I think some of his discoveries have been suppressed. He made a LOT of enemies in high places during his life.

phage, its been a while!
Thank you for the enlightening post. Not being an electrician, I have less than a laymen's understanding of the concept and was trying my best to regurgitate what I have heard.

Im surprised I havent heard yet that his atmospheric transmission rates were less than respectable. Although I can see how the earth itself would be a better medium than air.

Im still confused as to why tesla built wardenclyffe. It was my understanding the these towers sent pulses through the entire earth system (atmosphere/physical earth), but you are saying he was working on two distinct systems, one for air and one for the ground?


I will however stand by my assumption that this method of electricity delivery would be the best method(no power lines? energy anywhere?), as long as we can figure out a way to do it efficiently (gooo science!) and at the same time, deal with existing power structures. and yes i know... its a long stretch.

In this thread at least 5 different topics are being discussed and no one seems to know that they are talking about different things, quite confusing and irritating to read through:

1. people (OP was first) talking about Tesla's radiant energy antenna (collector) as I showed in the video in this post;
www.abovetopsecret.com...

2. Tesla's wireless power transmission as demonstrated in this post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

3. Electrostatic energy as discussed in this post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

4. And a modern twist to solar panels as spoken of in this post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...
and this post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

5. and last but not least Tela's electrical transmission through the ground as so eloquently spoken of in this post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I wish you dummies would stick to the topic in the OP which is Tela's radiant energy receiving antenna invention.
If you have no idea what the topic is do some research before posting and avoid looking like a dummy.

Tesla was working on one system, the ground transmission of electrical energy. In the article I quoted he stresses that the transmission of power via electromagnetic radiation could not possibly work.

Wardenclyffe was designed to be used as a wireless telegraphy station.

my take:

this is indeed possible. However, i do not think it is a good idea. Electricity is the driving force of Earth. Our planet is a leaky dipole Electric charge creates weather patterns and is critical in keeping out high energy particles from space.

The effects of pumping huge amounts of electricity into the atmosphere could have horrid consequences. There is an ATS user named Matyas that, if he is still around, could elaborate on this nicely. Perhaps i will have time to dig up some old emails/threads where we discussed this. Later, later.....

I am unsure. Humans create so many unintended consequences.

i have a few books on tesla and in one of them they talked about it being done with huge tesla coils and basicly shooting electricity into the atmosphere and than you could just run whatever without cords. but you still had to provide power to the coils.

now i actually read the article and hmmm wonder if thats actually possible? sounds simple enough. also wonder if the switch from anolog to digital can control this energy and make it not so free. making you think this was part of the plan?

Are you serious? You've never heard of this Tesla vehicle before? I've read about it countless times in the past few years. Never did know how factual the story was though.

In 1931, under the financing of Pierce-Arrow and George Westinghouse, a 1931 Pierce-Arrow was selected to be tested at the factory grounds in Buffalo, N.Y. The standard internal combustion engine was removed and an 80-H.P. 1800 r.p.m electric motor installed to the clutch and transmission. The A.C. motor measured 40 inches long and 30 inches in diameter and the power leads were left standing in the air -no external power source.

At the appointed time, Nikola Tesla arrived from New York City and inspected the Pierce-Arrow automobile. He then went to a local radio store and purchased a handful of tubes, wires and assorted resistors. A box measuring 24 inches long, 12 inches wide and 6 inches high was assembled housing the circuit.

The box was then placed on the front seat and had its wires connected to the air cooled, brushless motor. Two rods 1 /4" in diameter stuck out of the box about 3" in length. Mr. Tesla got into the driver's seat, pushed the two rods in and stated, "We now have power." He put the car into gear and it moved forward.

This vehicle, powered by an A.C. motor, was driven to speeds of 90 m.p.h. and performed better than any internal combustion engine of its day. One week was spent testing the vehicle. Several newspapers in Buffalo reported this test.

When asked where the power came from, Tesla replied, "From the ethers all around us." Several people suggested that Tesla was mad and somehow in league with sinister forces of the universe. He became incensed, removed his mysterious box from the vehicle and returned to his laboratory in New York City.

His secret apparently died with him. It is speculated that Tesla was able to somehow harness the earth's magnetic field that encompasses our planet. And, he somehow was able to draw tremendous amounts of power by cutting these lines of force or causing them to be multiplied together. The exact nature of his device remains a mystery.

www.bibliotecapleyades.net...



CAR RAN ON FREE ENERGY?

Tesla kept a much lower profile regarding another invention. The story— seemingly impossible to document, generations later—is that when he was around sixty-five, Tesla or his helpers pulled the gasoline engine out of a new Pierce-Arrow and stuck in an 80 horsepower alternating current electric motor. But no batteries! Instead, he bought a dozen vacuum tubes, wires and resistors.

Soon he had the parts arranged in a box which sat beside him in the front seat of the car. One account says the mysterious box was two feet long, a foot wide and six inches high, with two rods sticking out of it. From the driver's side, Tesla reached over and pushed the rods in, and the car took off at up to 80 miles per hour. He is reported to have test-driven the loaned Pierce-Arrow for a week. If this story is true, the secret of his power source died with him.

There are clues that indicate he could well have driven a car on "free energy." For example, Tesla wrote to his friend Robert Johnson, editor of Century magazine, that he had invented an electrical generator that didn't need an outside source of power. In the early 1930s, Tesla announced that he had, more than twenty-five years earlier, harnessed cosmic rays and made them operate a moving device.

Trying to discover what he had been talking about, today's researchers comb through his patents, such as "Apparatus for the Utilization of Radiant Energy," U.S. Patent No. 658,957, 1901. The research indicates Tesla was working on his "free energy" generator before he hammered out a major article for Robert Johnson's June 1900 issue of Century, in which he describes sending power wirelessly.

That would be interesting to read.

Can you quote those statements from a reliable source? And was he talking about a real car that he actually built, or just hypothetically?


In reply I must, sadly, admit no.

After my many visits to this site, I have become aware of the lack of credibility given to anything which cannot be absolutely verified by either an audio or, preferably, a video showing the persons being quoted making the statements first hand.

I will, however, endeavor to find as close an acceptible quotation of his statements as I can find available.

What's wrong with written sources which can be verified such as the following?

Newspaper articles
Magazines (other than tabloids)
Professional journals
Published letters to/from Tesla
Patents

I've seen numerous things Tesla said in sources like those and I haven't found much reason to doubt that he said them, though there is more than ample reason to doubt that what he says is true in some cases, like his claim that radioactive substances aren't really radioactive, they are only being stimulated by rays from the sun. I would have thought that was pretty widely known to be false even in 1931 when Tesla said it, and for the 25 years before that when he preached about the illusory nature of atomic power:

www.todayinsci.com...


The idea of atomic energy is illusionary but it has taken so powerful a hold on the minds, that although I have preached against it for twenty-five years, there are still some who believe it to be realizable.
-New York Times (5 Jul 1931), Section 2, 1
So I think that would be an example of an acceptable written source, published in the New York Times.

OK everybody who thinks atomic energy is an illusion, raise your hand.
