Picture of Free energy generators
This instructable is my third instructable and it is about making free energy generators. Now, if you are some of those stubborn people that don't think this is true or that it works, GO LOOK AT SOMETHING ELSE because this is not for you. So a little background on the guy I used for a picture: his name is Nikola Tesla, he was born on July 10 1856, he died on January 7 1943, he was born in the Austrian empire. Nikola was also the world's leading scientist and continues to be today despite what anyone else says. Unfortunately, after he died, the big electricity companies almost wiped Nikola from history because of his free electricity inventions. If you want to know more, read the book: Tesla a man out of time.

Step 1: Components and parts

Picture of Components and parts
The main components are listed below, take note that the kind of the specific components are listed in the assembly part.

-electrolytic capacitors
-ceramic capacitors
-ground connection

You can assemble these generators on a bread board or solder the pieces.
*the construction of the antenna is the next step, though it has to be built in a certain way

Step 2: Antenna making

Picture of Antenna making
The picture is pretty self explanatory. Get a piece of cardboard that is around 1 foot by 1 foot. Get a piece of aluminum foil the size of your cardboard square. Then staple each corner of the foil to the board using staples. If you are like me and don't like going outside or don't have the time to mount the antenna, then hang it in a room somewhere and connect it to a generator. If you have the time and like going outside, put it on a pole at least 10 feet high off the ground. Also, the pole that holds up the antenna has to be made of some insulating material, like a PVC pipe. Refer to the second picture if you need help.

Yes you can capture electricity from the air but the current is so small it is practically unusable.

Have You ever seen a thunderstorm?

Okay so I don't know anything about pretty much anything but I would still like to comment. I am a bit disappointed. At first I was excited about your instructable but if it makes less than 1 volt what is it good for?! Please tell us how to build an extremely powerful one. I appreciate you show us the basics here though..

Ok so I just got back from my local hardware store. Not really sure if I have everything(fingers crossed). Gonna build it later this afternoon and hopefully be able to get it going by tonight. I'll come back and update later tonight with an update and how much electricity I was able to produce for free.

I remember doing this in university and never got the chance to explore further... good for you uploading this and crediting Tesla. One of the greatest men who ever lived.

There is a group doing this. Search Atmospheric Electricity Collectors.

You should check this document:

you spelled the to wrong its suposed to be "too."

2 machines power station level engineer validated, 1 for all children to understand attached as photo, on in link for all engineers who already know every bit of this is used exactly this way every day. Higher output than nuclear per ground space,

What if we connect two or three of these devices together? We will beable to get more volts.

I tried this using aluminium foil from kitchen and from that I hocked a long wire and used your schematic ....not working

techno guy (author)  sinergicus11 months ago

Did you try using insulated wire and/or also grounding the schematic? Also this doesn't make practical amounts of electricity, it is just to show that you can actually harvest energy in the air. That said, you might need a sensitive multimeter to actually detect anything, lighting up LEDs and things like that might not work with such low current.

At the contact with aluminum foil , the wire was uninsulated and also I used grounding like in your skematics...I obtained power in milivolt range and no useful current so for me this means no results...If you cannot light at least an lead the device have no practical value....

I observed on the you tube some guys have obtained over 12 volts power using similar method ( look for a guy named inventor or inventor3 i don,t remember exactly)

Here another guy
His skematic can be found in

#6 looks like the basic schematic for a tesla coil, missing a couple of parts. Tesla was fantastic. I was so fascinated with Tesla and his inventions that I built my own 6ft. tall Tesla coil with a 2.5 ft. diameter torroid, which produces around 75,000 volts. Props to you who gives credit to Tesla.

Take a building block of a bridge rectifier.Place high voltage capacitors to the ac input terminals,these will also be your collector inputs .Start with a group of 3.Tesla loved to use multiples of 3.A clue to the power of 3 is
1-2-3 That's all I have to say about that right now other than three is a fundamental number.

On the first bridge + output will go to your load capacitor.
I do not recommend using electrolytic capacitors at all.They just don't have enough electrostatic capabilities.
now connect - bridge1 to + bridge2 and - bridge2 to + bridge3 - bridge 3 will be your - load connection unless you use more blocks,in that case -bridge 3 will connect to module2 + bridge1 and so on.
Remember to place isolation capacitors on all ac in bridges and parallel connect those caps.
You now have a circuit of 3 series connected bridge rectifiers that + comes from bridge 1 and - comes from bridge 3
You can continue to series connect these building blocks in any quantity you choose.The first bridge will always be + output and the last will always be - output.
Although I have not done this, it is said that about 200 of these modules will power a house providing your collector plate is large enough and your dedicated ground is proper.That's 800 individual diodes and 400 individual isolation capacitors plus a load bank of capacitors or batteries, and as large a collector plate as possible,don't forget about the earth ground it's a key element to success.
My plan is to incorporate this into a multi floor(at least 2 story)building with an insulated metal roof.
I have a circuit board I'm developing and maybe one day I will post it.
WHOA! 200 to power a house?!?!?! I've never seen one of these things give more than 0.5 watts! Not to mention there is only so many EM waves in one area, so unless you live next to the local radio mega-station, you won't get much power.
what do you mean by isolation capacitors friend? also , parallel connect those caps? did u get this idea from how is your project coming? :)

Sorry, but this is small scale only.
@techno guy -just because you limit yourself why should we
@hifiman- awsome my thoughts exact

Mind If ask, but how does adding diodes help anything?
Diodes themselves have a resistance (very small, but they do) so they would drop the voltage slightly. Since the capacitor is polar (only works one way around), then surely you don't need them. To me this is just #1 but with two unnecessary components.

If there is someone out there with more electrical knowledge than me, please correct me here.
the goal of the diodes is to block one half of the radio waves in the air so they can charge the capacitor
Well done for having the insight and curiousity to try this out.
Unfortunately, you have confused two different effects here and both are well understood by science. The first is that the earth is surrounded by the ionosphere which is a highly charged shell of atoms and molecules surrounding the earth; it starts at a height of around 50miles and is at a potential of around 300000V. There have been proposals that power could be tapped from this. In fact, what you have created is a working but inefficient self powered radio receiver which in the 1930s they would have called a crystal set. In effect you have rectified the many signals in the radio environment around your antenna and converted it into the dc current that charged your capacitor. The square arrangement of diodes that you've drawn is called a bridge rectifier and is a commonly available component.

If you want to make your circuit more efficient then I suggest that you look at using schottky diodes and a low leakage capacitor otherwise charging your capacitor is like trying to fill a bucket with a hole in it.

Thanks for your work and good luck with your experiments and your future.

Since the sky gets charged, the ground also gets charged oppositely by laws of physics.

Um, explain this one to me.
If the air gets positively charged, then surely the ground also gets positively charged as there is a net decrease in electrons.

What you may be thinking of is if you have a closed system: If you move the electrons to one side, then that will create a positive charge on one side, and a negative one on the other.
This doesn't apply here as there is an addition of the solar wind (not a closed system), which by the way, according to wikipedia, has both protons and electrons, and thus no charge.

I'm not meaning to pick holes in your ible (ok, maybe I am), but would like to point these out, and that I don't agree with this.
I am not a physicist, so I may be wrong but:

My threory:

The facts:
+ve charge in the atmosphere
-ve charge in the ground (I agree with you here, I cannot deny it, because it works)

The Speculation:
The charge difference has to come from somewhere, and you suggested solar wind. I suggest a system similar to thunderstorms: Friction has the ability to knock electrons around. The direction of where the electrons go is determined by the elements electronegativity. Air, made up mostly of nitrogen, with a high electronegativity value of 3.006, and the ground (most other elements, like metals and such making up the ground) would have a much lower overall value.
What all that means is that when the air hits the ground (wind etc) some electrons are knocked out of the air, giving it a positive charge, and the ground a negative charge.

Anyone got any other theories?
iceng sdfgeoff2 years ago

Yes, that its radio/other electromagnetic waves below the IR spectrum. All electronics have a tiny signature, big things like power lines and cell towers much higher. It works because it acts like a cell phone/radio/whatever antenna. They take a teeny-tiny ammount of power at a specific frequency and amplify it, this takes a teeny bit of power from a lot of frequencies, and stores it so over time it charges a capacitor. That's why you get so little. Plus, EMPs from the sun, other stars, and the earths magnetic field may also play a part.

How can we up the scale to power a family home of a modest size?
tamaran2 years ago
I would like to make a sterling engine that i can power my house with.
I have read they are relatively simple to make even for the non engineer type.
my question is once built how is ones home electrical sockets, appliances and the like connected to use this energy?
do i hook up the engine to my fuse box?
or rewire the house?
juanvi tamaran2 years ago
how are you going to do the sterling engine?
do you know sterling engines also need an energy source of some kind?
Stirling engines are not very efficient, thou fun to build and make them work with a candle
Look at what device #5 and a plasma ball can do here
paywithlove3 years ago
wasnt there a few people aware of this system by NT knew it was possible to scale it up in power and down in size? i think we all missing something important maybe.

dude you just stole my ideas and findings, wtf, energy device 4 is described in MY instructable, and energy device 6 is described by me, in the comments of MY instructable, you even posted comments on it asking me questions, you cant just take other peoples ideas and work and say there your own, im reporting you to a moderator.

A link to MY Findings
Check the publish dates if you guys dont believe me.
Yes I seen that as well he plagerized what you did, he even says thanks so he can use it in his IBLE. Some people cant think for themselves
techno guy (author)  itsthatsguy4 years ago
I got energy device 6 off the internet so not from your 'ible.
