Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

Free energy is a reality, I have experienced it first hand when some thug drained my gas tank.

I'm willing to bet every single one of those people who discovered free energy are still paying their electric bills

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

When a real free energy device is constructed, it won't be considered free energy, there will be a completely logical reason it can produce energy, some law which appears thwarted in reality, all normal physics.

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

No such thing as free energy. Even the quantum field mentioned that does exist borrows what's known as zero point energy on the basis of the uncertainty principle to produce ripples and or virtual photons in the vacuum of space.

If it's not considered free energy, then a free energy device will not have been constructed.

Thought this would work before I learned about Newton's 2nd law of thermodynamics.

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

I came up with this same idea when I was 12 years old, told my father and he laughed, he had tried the same thing when he was young. Free energy will never be, but that doesn't mean something won't be made in the future that we might see as free energy today, not having an understanding of the physics.

It will probably be something like the electron pump in Asimov's novel The Gods Themselves. Interesting story.

Haha I was around that age too. And I was close to 6 when I tried powering the house by looping a power cord.

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

Once we can drive across the U.S. off a single banana peel, energy is free enough for me

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

My idea when I was a kid involved using a battery to dissociate water. Then use a fuel cell or combustion device to produce power (obviously this doesn't produce enough power to completely recharge the battery, but my genius has not yet been accounted for). However, the key to getting some free energy is that the dissociation is happening at the bottom of the ocean, and the bubbles produced are collected in some kind of bells or balloons which are attached to a cable/pulley system which runs a generator as the bubbles rise to the surface. This generator is what recharges the battery (or just powers the dissociation directly - as long as the water is deep enough you can guarantee enough energy from the rising bubbles for this to work), allowing the free harvesting of oxygen and hydrogen which can be recombined into water releasing energy in the process!! Now, who wants to poke a hole in my vision of fame and riches for solving all of the World's energy problems?

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

I'm actually kind of pleased that my idea is now sort of a reality. When I was a kid I wanted to have a home in the sky. Literally. Problem is, the only option, a balloon, is more or less static, and I wanted to be able to fly it. Again... kid So my idea was to construct super lightweight home that would use solar power. The same fans that provide lift could also be used to recharge in an emergency, by a rapid descent, and there would be compressed gas bladders that can deploy like air bags. Not to mention of course, parachutes.

Now, solar powered drones are a reality, and likely to become more commonplace in the future.

Never mind all of this rarely takes into account the energy expenditure in creating the "free" energy to begin with. Tried explaining why a prius is far worse for the environment than just a small car with good mileage, all I got back was a blank stare.

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

Ooo! I just had an awesome idea! We could build a giant fan on a stick with a generator in it and get free energy from the wind! We could call it a wind turbine!

Or even better, we could build a HUGE water blocker with turbines in it and get FREE energy from big rivers! I would call it a Hydropower Plant!

I need to put a patent on these ideas.

Re: "Free energy" bullshit.

Or, and hear me out here, this is complicated stuff, we make a giant wheel, WITH PADDLES! Stick it in a nearby river, and voila! Water pushes the paddle and you get to grind your wheat. Oh crap, I think it's been done

It's not really a question of free energy, just energy being cheap enough for us to think of it as omnipresent and never an issue, in the same way that we don't think about running out of air.
