Somewhere I believe in San Jose, there is a fire department that has a light bulb of 4 watts.
It is bright enough for all the use they need, and has been running for 114 years.
The only problem is the company that sold those light bulbs, went out of business LONG ago.
Like 104 years ago I believe.
I'm sure you can make yourself a 4 watt bulb if you want, or get some kind of "power switch" that only allows the equivalent of 4 watts of power
into your light bulb.
It's like having those pretty dimmers and just leaving it on a really low setting.
You could see around perfectly but reading would be a strain
Oh I see K_OS already mentioned a long lasting light bulb lol...well I'm not sure the exact year but it was at the turn of the century, mabye the
bulb was 104years old...because the light bulb came out what...1898 or something like that?
Ugh me and my skim reading...1901, ok so that's 102 years
I knew it was up there...it is the 4watter right? or .4 watter? lol
Ok as for the "water powered car" it's actually powered off of hydrogen, you just get it from water, but you must put in as much energy as you'll
get out in an "ideal" situation so at most you break even.
Because you can never have that "ideal" situation Hydrogen only makes a great fuel, not energy source.
We still rely on nature as an energy source.
