Sounds to me like another "Cold Fusion in a test tube" of the early 90's!

I truly hope that this is a real thing, but I find it so difficult to believe that it is possible-- Even if it was possible to only power itself, it would be difficult to believe.

Would love to see it, and would love to own one if it is true. Too bad we didn't get a company name, or website, or anything to back this up.

It looks totally viable to me. And if it works the man will make a ton of money and will help a lot of people especially where powering things is a problem.

Wouldn't it be nice to see these ideas were being worked on like the ideas of the industrial revolution. I would love to have a house that had my own power plant in the basement that not only powered my house, but powered itself too. How about a car using the same principles.

I fear that they will never be developed to be provided to the masses as there are certain large corporations, with obvious government backing, will never let that happen. I am not trying to start a political battle here or start a war of words, only that my opinion is that these devices are news worthy, but I fear will never make it to the masses.

As an engineer when I see schemes like this that violate the Second Law of Thermodynamics, I am very, very skeptical.
I won't believe any of them until I see a test run by engineers or scientists and the test subjected to peer review.

Unless you re-write the laws of physics, this machine will never fly as advertised. You can,t produce more power than you use in producing that power. No such thing as a perpetual motion machine under the laws of physics as I was taught.

While in no way related to me as far as I know, this man was doing what seems to be very similar research back in the 1970-80s. Check out this link: HERE I also looked up his "bio" and found he died "mysteriously" and was a target of legal actions which went "nowhere", but apparently suceeded in preventing his invention(s) from becoming comonplace.

Perhaps the Aussie inventors have heard of his work, and may have improved upon it. I'm not smart enough to know. ED
