It Runs on Water - The story of Free Energy

On Sunday, 17 December 1995, viewers in U.K. saw an hour-long T V. program which, at long last, puts across the clear message that "free energy" is on the way. A world powered by water might seem like a dream today, but 100 years ago, that is exactly what the men of steam would have thought about a world powered by oil. Enjoy the show.

  • Tesla promoted "free energy", too, look what happened to him. Co-opted by early corporate America.

    I'm afraid that the word "free" followed by the word "energy" disrupts the very fabric of our capitalistic society. They'll never let it happen.

  • Oh, and by the way, what they say in this documentary goes against all fundamental laws of thermodynamics:

    1- energy cannot be created or destroyed, only converted from one form to another.

    2- if energy is put into a system, you cannot get all that energy out again.

  • I noticed from the camera shots where the guys walk into the building that there are overhead electrical wires leading to the building... If they have a machine that makes more energy than it takes, what are those wires for?

    Seriously, if they were really onto something it would be so easy for them to prove - remove the electric wires to the pump and instead run the pump with electricity generated from the steam. The fact that these devices still need to be plugged in is firm evidence that they are *not* onto some source of free energy, but are simply poor scientists not properly measuring all their inputs and outputs.

    P.S. It still may be a very efficient electric water heater.

  • My first thought was the same as zugi. The efficiency quoted means it should have been able to power itself.

    Also, this was aired almost 12 years ago. If it was real what happened to the prototype car that was almost completed.

  • Yeah, most people would think that 12 years later, things would have moved if any of this was true..

    But like was said in a previous comment.. capitalists will never let technology like this happen.. just like at the electric/ water powered car.

  • Brian:

    Yes, it disrupts the fabric of capitalistic society...but they don't have to let it happen. It will be forced upon them. Change is coming.


    Kiltak:

    Energy is everything, therefore its not being made, only converted from a form we don't normally perceive to a form that is easily tangible to us. As for number 2, they're not getting it all out, they're converting from one form of energy to another(in theory). I do not, however, believe their machine works as it is supposed to. You also forgot law 3, which also applies, even moreso directly than the others, to this case. "As temperature approaches absolute zero, the entropy of a system approaches a constant." -- and as we all know, entropy ain't what it used to be.

  • capitalists will never let technology like this happen, just look at bittorent and pirated software. They disrupt the capitalists

  • While every single point here is plausible, credible and well accepted in both society and society, you all fail to notice a constant which was mentioned, the way they use the electricity.
    Its not just being dumped in straight off the mains, they were using "stepped up" sources - ie High Voltage, Low current at modified frequencies.
    Frequencies...... ever seen a crystal glass smashed by a singer? Its not caused by how loud someone sings but by the FREQUENCY.
    If this applies to all matter in the universe, whats to say its not possible that modifying the frequency of an energy like electricity could have a similar feedback effect?

    The Best scientists in the world have one thing above all else, insatiable curiosity.

    Stan Meyers was poisened, and died on March 21, 1998.

  • I know its not what y'all want to hear, but if something like this worked, it would be worth a FORTUNE.. It would make a lot of capitalists VERY rich. No doubt. The automobile industry would go NUTS. The bottled water people would jump on it like crazy. Oil is still needed for a lot of other stuff, and they would probably just up their prices to make up for it. It would be a long time before oil would stop making them a ton of money, and in that time they would most definately find other ways to make it. The cool thing about capitalism is that it bends, weaves, and accomodates. Its a system built on change. Some individuals may not enjoy change, but our system thrives on it. An invention like this would make too many people too much money to be shelved if it really worked.

    Also, Tesla was great, don't get me wrong, but he was also totally nuts.. Thats what happened to him..

  • Thank you, TheTechnicalRevolutionary.

    Honestly, this is one of the oldest and most effective conspiracies ever - "free energy".

    Always hyped, always false.

  • Science said the earth was flat until our technology improved and said otherwise. Science said we'd never get to the moon until we did. Science, with all its technology, still hasn't improve human existence a single iota and in fact has only made it harder in that science has put limitations on what man can and cannot do. Until we overcome that limitation, Science is a sham religion and is really just as good as any other religion in that it's only as good as the one who practices it.

  • @above

    your an idiot

    the Babylonians figured out that the world was spherical, and the lived 4000BC.

    When exactly did science "say" that we could not reach the moon? Considering that through scientific endeavor we actually accomplished that feat of technological and engineering prowess...

    Oh an penicillin has done nothing for the human condition, oh no. The ability to cure infection has not made life easier for anyone has it.

    Science is a sham religion? WTF. Honestly, if you had more than 2 brain cells to rub together you'd realize the difference between science and religion.
    Religion: a belief system which has unprovable tenets and does not provide proof of its veracity

    Science: A system of checking ideas and concepts for veracity within the physical domain, using mathematics and logic as the primary methods of creating the initial hypothesis and theories, with physical/empirical experimentation to assert the truth and accuracy of the theory.

    If you don't like what science has done for the human species, good for you. The rest of us will continue to enjoy lifespans past 30 years.

  • One thing they didn't tell is when water breaks down into oxygen and hydrogen energy is released in the form of heat.

    What they have done here is failed to insert the energy stored in the water to the equation.

    Just like fuel, a tiny bit of energy input can release large amounts of heat energy. Thats because a large amount of energy used used to form oil.

  • The company originally featured here, Hydro Dynamics is currently selling their hydrosonic pump devices marketed as "high efficiency" steam generators. I haven't been able to find their "actual" efficiency rating nor any conclusive results of third party testers so it looks like either they successfully got discredited on the over-unity idea or just changed their market image

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:41 PM  

  • To all people who are saying "why not just take the electrical wiring out of the buidling and let the machine run it for them" such as zugi: The problem is that it's incredibly in-efficient to turn steam into electricity. The machine may be producing 70% more energy that it takes to run, but in turning that to electricity, all of it it and more would be lost. That is why it's so hard to prove.
