@Max, well I just did some research on Quantum Energy Devices and came to this page

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/home-quantum-energy-generator

Now Indiegogo ia a bit like kickstarter, you pledge money upfront to get a product as soon as it is available.  But this project rewards you as follows:
  • $ 100 - a Fix The World key chain
  • $ 250 - a Fix The World bumper sticker
  • $ 500 - a Fix The World tote bag
  • $ 1000 - a Fix The World sweatshirt.

I'd really like some of these but I live outside the continental US and they won't ship there.  But no mention of actually getting a QEG.....

Wikipedia, a source I trust a bit more, gives us this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energy

But this IS heavy physics and way above my head, but seems nothing to do with generators!.  I suspect it would be way above the heads of most of those people in Morocco as well.....

Sorry Max. I do bow to your superior knowledge.  I should have clarified, and do so later in the piece, and Tesla acknowledges in his patent, that most of the energy input will come from steam or compressed air.   What I should ahve made clear is that the generator might use 1kW for excitation - ie field coils - from a 10KW output.   Not to be confused with the excitation in the plans, which is a spark gap intended to get non-technical viewers excited I think!

According to the link to her GoFundMe URL, she has collected over $21000!

I wonder if the name of the donation engine is supposed to be suggestive or just happenstance and that there are nonfraudulent recipients somewhere on it.

 

I just took a look aound the home page of GoFundMe and it seems to me that the panhandlers got tired of sitting on the street and moved onto the web.

Did you see the part in the manual that says (in all caps):

IF YOU ARE TRAINED IN TRADITIONAL PHYSICS, AND HAVE NOT BEEN DOING THIS WORK FOR MANY YEARS, YOU MUST FIRST DO YOUR RESEARCH ON BASIC QUANTUM ENERGY DEVICES AND HOW THEY WORK

I love it -- "traditional physics" -- LOL

@David: You say "Maybe Tesla did produce a generator that gave 10KW output for a 1KW excitation input, giving it 90% efficiency electricity wise..."

Hang on, 90% efficient? If you put 10 in and get 1 out, you are 1/10 = 10% efficient, so if you put 1 in and get 10 out, that means you are 10X or 1000% efficient (which is pretty damned efficient, let me tell you -- I R an Engineer and I know these things :-)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
