The main criticisms seem to be from the "perpetual motion" angle which, as I've already mentioned, I'm taken as a given (that it wont)
I am, however intrigued if this thing might be producing energy at anything approaching "zero point" because, if this is the case then I'm guessing I could hook the power supply up to the aforementioned solar/wind source to provide the extra juice.
I realise that I'm probably being totally naive and making some fundamental error here. I got no clue how any of this works. Figured if I ran it by someone who can check the maths or physics or whatever it is then I could either look into developing one or at least get my mate to stfu when he goes on about it.
There's also the whole "cult of tesla" thing that's baffling me at the moment. Mainly because it all just goes over my head but I'm getting the impression he was a nutjob that invented AC then made some fucked up claims in the throes of a breakdown and conspiracy theorists have been lapping it up ever since. That about right or did the guy actually imply something we still don't understand about the properties of electricity and for some reason science has never worked it out?
Devices that pull energy from ambient sources (wind, solar, possibly stray radio communications) shouldn't be considered overunity. Would you call a wind-chime a perpetual-motion machine? It kind of is, but not like any seeker would probably admit.
I'm not suggesting those things are perpetual motion - the plan is to "cheat" and use these readily available sources to tip the balance.
