Wouldn’t it be great if you could tap into energy that is around you and charge your gadgets? No more shall you worry about your cell phone battery or how to charge it. How would you feel if we told you that Yes, there is now a device that can be used to gather up atmospheric radiation and provide you with free electricity. This device has been created by a German student. The device does exactly what has been mentioned; soaks up radiation and harvests electricity. It is capable of recharging a ‘AA’ battery by making use of the nearby free energy. It is capable of tapping into the ambient, environmental energy from almost all the sources and those include the power lines as well and even the household appliances (electrical).
In essence, this is wireless transfer of power. This groundbreaking invention was announced during the early 2013 and the uses of this device are almost endless. Just imagine the wonders that can be achieved by incorporating it into gadgets and other stuff. There are also reports of making use of the same technology in Smartphones so your phone can keep on charging even when its in your pocket.
Although this concept is quite amazing but there are still many questions which need to be answered. We need to calculate if this device is really feasible and how much of energy can it harvest, speaking of which we also need to ascertain how much free energy is really out there? Once that has been calculated, the next question will be if this device can be designed to harvest more energy and if its efficiency can be increased.
Still, the device is surely one step closer to the future where we all will be amazed, to say the least, by technological advancements.
This concept has been in use in Manila for almost 50 years now. No complicated gadget, just a coil of wire near electric transmission line to power nearby homes. The electric company says it’s a form for electric power theft.
How can it be theft, when all you are doing is using an alternating magnetic field that is freely available and wireless, to induce electron flow?
Telsa already knew that, but he was cut short of introducing it into our society by shear greediness…
It doesn’t steal. Induction does add load to systems. Basically, imagine that on a certain wavelength, all power-lines glow, like the wire in an incandescent light-bulb as electricity goes through it, just on a wavelength we can’t see. Then you make a solar panel geared for it. (it’s a different type of energy radiation, but in essence, it’s the same general idea.)
How about direct application systems without stray energy heating the planet & bouncing about the universe ?
There is no gain just conservation.
Dad demonstrated this by lighting a neon bulb next to a radio antena when I was a kid. Sixty five years later it is made useful in another application.
If it draws energy from other electrical devices, then there may be nothing gained and could be another way to steal.
What I would like to know is “Does this drvice merely steal energy, or does it result in a net gain?”
It is great if it does, but it could just be another form of the old “pepertual motion machine” which can never work or never gain anything, except at the expense of someone else or another device.
