    If u can get a near-perpetual contraption that still requires little manual input from time to time to keep going (e.g. spinning a big wheel or manually lifting a weight up high - think cuckoo clock), and get energy the rest of the day/week, that'd do me just fine.

    That's exactly what I'm talking about.

    I tend to make simple things very complicated. I've wired a deck with 5 lights, an outlet and an exterior switch for one of the lights. That kind of complexity is about it for me with electricity and I had to study for weeks over and over to make sure I was getting it right.

    So I don't really understand what this guy has done--is this feasible or a prank? Because this one thing would provide an entire home with power--free--after each time you get it going: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P-a8QAeCoNU

    Who understands this??

    If this works as claimed, he could sell electricity to the power company, right? Power companies do buy energy from homeowners.
    I would suggest you ask the YouTube "publisher" if he is doing that. And if not, why not?

    If only we could squeeze power from wit we'd have true perpetual power from LogHouseNut. Let's think out of he box.

    Giant herbal wheel?

    I designed one!
    It was magnetic induction drive.

    Stressman & I were in a hotel last Summer.
    "I said, "Peter, I want to show you something"
    and then pulled-up the design on my laptop.

    Peter looked at it, looked closer, pondered a bit,
    looked at me and said, "NO...!"

    (Aw man, that was my Magnum Opus!)

    "It won't???"

    "No, and besides, you're out of phase."

    "Oh, well I can fix that! Will it work then?"

    "No... well, not long-term."

    (Whew, I'm off & running!) "Well, that's good, I didn't
    need it long-term, just say... eighteen months or so."

    "No... more like five hours."

    (DANG!)

    The WITTS Generator is scam. You have to pay them to get the plans, and pay them consulting services when it inevitably doesn't work. The video's showing it working have an external power source keeping it running. The main place they confuse people is volts vs. watts. They'll show an increase in volts from using the machine, but fail to show the loss in amps to preserve watts (minus loss of course). They'll claim the increase in volts is 'over unity', which is non-sense. Watts is work, not volts.


    Its basically an over complicated step up transformer.
