Agreed but what if there's a way to cheat! thats something us humans are good at
all thats needed is to somehow create an imbalance and maybe
thats what has been found.
Someone mentioned "A model is one thing". Well maybe thats why they've built this?
Is this a hoax? We don't know yet, and I don't think that just because we've had hoaxes in the past automatically makes everything a hoax.
Every time I look more parts have been added so its difficult to know how it might work. But one thing is for sure - People have been persuaded to
pump money into it.
I'd be really surprised if someone pumped all that money into this without seeing a WORKING model. And now we see another being built in the US. It
does seem people believe its worth looking at.
People mentioned wind power etc. Its too unreliable, Theres a wind farm just a few miles from where I live and I so often see it just sitting there
with nothing turning.
*IF* this machine works, I think its a very viable alternative. It would be silent and completely pollution free, only needing maintenance when parts
wear out. It could also be sunk into the ground out of site.
Someone said "Only
30kw". 30kw is a lot of power. We have to look at the *average* that a consumer needs, and that is not a lot because most
of our electrical items these days our so efficient. Compare a flat screen television to an old CRT TV. I remember when the early televisions had
large resisters that glowed red hot, they were full of valves/tubes that glowed red hot. The old TV's consumed several hundred watts, but now we have
flat screens that consume just a few tens of watts. We have LED lighting that is highly efficient too. Our homes our thermally lined and easy to keep
warm. We can put panels on the roof to heat water etc.
I think if this machine works it will be a very viable source of energy.
