Introduction: Free Energy

In this instructable I will teach you how to suck energy from this planet called earth, even I don't know exactly how it works, but it works, can't argue with results!

Sorry, no video will be added, where I live it's been snowing and it's producing terrible results. Right before it started snowing it produced a thrid of a volt in a couple of hours, now that it's snowing and that it's officially winter it's only charging up to 0.03 volts, which is terrible. If you know how to solve this problem then please comment!

THIS IS REAL, NOT A HOAX

Step 1: The Theory

This was invented by the ultimate genius of all time, Nikola Tesla. I'll basically try and crack it down to how I understand it, and how a normal person would understand it (mind you this is how I interpret many difference sources, what I'm saying may not be right)

The earth and it's atmosphere is basically a giant capacitor, when lightning strikes it discharges it. Tesla's device sucked power from that infinitely charging capacitor to charge a man made capacitor. By putting an electrode in the air and an electrode in the ground, you tap into these energy source to charge your own capacitor.

Step 2: The Materials

What you need is:

Aluminum Foil

Glue (not shown)

Paper

An Electrolytic capacitor

alligator clips

A multimeter

Step 3: Clarification

This instructable is a proof of concept. If you would like to line the roof of your house with this stuff then you should be smart enough to do it if you're going to attempt it. This has some advantages and disadvantages over solar cells:

Pros:
Cheaper
Lighter
Easier to Make
Doesn't require sun
It won't really break

Cons:
Doesn't produce as much electricity for the same size "cells"

Step 4: Tape

Tape the foil strip to the big piece of aluminum foil so that it acts as a lead, make sure the aluminum foils are touching.

Step 5: Glueing

Glue a piece of aluminum foil to the piece of paper. I'm not sure why this is necessary, but Tesla said so. Tesla said to insulate 1 side, so I insulated it with paper.

Step 6: Clip It

Clip an alligator clip to the aluminum foil and attach the other end to the positive side of your capacitor. Clip the other alligator clip to a ground such as the third prong on a wall socket or a metal water pipe (make sure it's all metal, not plastic).

Step 7: You're Done!?!

It may not look like much, but you just created a device that will obtain you free electricity! During my experiment using a 560uF capacitor it took about an hour to get to .08 volts. Not bad considering the size of the panel and how low it is. Later I got after several hours 1/3 of a volt, exciting!

Step 8: Taking It Further

Now that this proof of concept is done you can scale up!

You can:

Line your house with it

Make conductive balloons (should work really well) so that you get both huge surface area and a high altitude. The only reason why I didn't do this was because I didn't have the resources.

Use this as a science fair project and win 1st prize.

I'm going to be experimenting with aluminum tape and see if it works really effectively outside

Step 9: Trouble Shooting

1) My capacitor charged and then discharged.
Something went wrong with your panel so that you capacitor is actually emiting the little energy that it has.

2) My capacitor isn't charging.
Make sure that your ground is a real ground.
Using it outside works better for some reason
use a smaller value capacitor (between 1000uF and 100uF is good)

This is good source of free energy for everyone. Thank you Gregory !

free energy is nonexistent and implausible

There is NO such thing as FREE energy.

Your assembling a simple antenna and picking up radio energy. If you do this on a big scale - And you can - You create a radio black spot and quickly upset the owners of the transmitting station.

In most parts of the world there are big fines for doing that.

IF Free energy were available in such a simple way don't you think we would all by not be powering our houses with it rather than paying excessively for generated power??

Not true. Radio energy is actually a vibration at a certain frequency. Whether its RF or EM, it can be picked up by this (crappy antenna) but will not produce any measurable current without first being picked up by a coil or solenoid. The circuit described here is purely capacitive/resistive and has no inductance. So where is the power coming from...

Not really so, RF energy can be easily turned into voltage and current, given enough Rf energy, and commercial radio transmitters give out mega watts, you can pick up with a suitable antenna enough to easily run lights and in principle relatively heavy electrical equipment.

My inductively charges tooth brush does this on a small scale, the fact it is operating at RF levels can easily be proven by putting it close to am Am radio.

You live with believe that humans are honest but its unfortunately you wrong. There is a free energy as example magnetic rotation which creat movement and that creats energy now i cant tell you how (because of different reasons) however lets put this way how is our universe works? (i mean our solar system) with position of each planet and sun with they size and etc makes it perfect to pull and push and create an rotation around other big force the sun... same theory :) (i can make a small round object lets say it is 2 times bigger than tennis ball and gives enough for 1/4 of the house :) but energy from Air ot is complex but possible and not from radio its just need to be strong enough so caches from sky ... but people make very weak once so it caches from radio waves...

THATS NOT FREE ENERGY. thats how motors work. also, the enrgy holding our solar system. wil... die hard

1 more way to make energy... this one im not sure but i explain... 20 years back there was a batteries (i seen it) it was 5cm to 10cm big and had plastic box so you pull water in it and inside creats quimical reaction and produces 12 volts (nice ha?) as u see i told u 3 ways but there is even more way to make free energy :)

Everything on this and all other planets has an electromagnetic signature, the very FACT that you are alive to read this, SCREAMS that Free Energy exists EVERYWHERE...

Gravity the force that holds you to the ground, is electromagnetic in nature...

DC / Direct Current is organic Earth Energy...

AC / Alternating Current was invented by Nikola Tesla using his Poly Phase Generator...

I strongly suggest RICK, that before you open your mouth and insert your entire Foot, that you ( DO THE RESEARCH ) and know exactly what your talking about...

I am absolutely certain that energy without doing work is not a reality.

You can use gravity, example a water wheel, but some how something di the work of carrying the water uphill for you.

that may not have been you but in the sense of physics it isn't FREE.

(Please don't "Shout" it won't make me listen better, accept what you claim or pay better attention)

Offer me conclusive proof of an example of FREE energy - that is energy that comes from a source that requires no input of any kind just tapping out the energy.

Everything produces a natural magnetic energy field,this is what Tesla's research was entirely based on,Utilizing that ambient energy and then magnifying it...

nope. he was trying to wirelessly power the world.he did succeed, but not to the extent he was hoping for

Possibly, but at a microscopoly small and almost undetectable level. Our mechanical machines, motors, generators, electronics produce a magnetic field many millions of times greater but we still cannot harvest meaningful energy from this source.

the term freeenergy means to create energy from, essentally nothing. basically somethingwith a >100% efficiency. not possible.

Firewood if you have proven gravity is magnetic you need to turn in your papers and pick up your Nobel Prize. Gravity is not magnetic. All mass has gravity even neutrons with no charge or a neutral charge. DC is not " Earth Energy". DC is direct current created by dynamos. Earth is one, induced magnetics . Perhaps read basic electrical?

Sorry but you need to do some research and try it yourself, it's NOT radio energy, it's Radiant energy, Nicola Tesla was a genius and the only reason we don't run on his energy grid today was because his backer owned stock in electric companies. The tesla coil, designed by Nicola Tesla, is commonly used in YOUR CAR. Radio waves are one of the types of energy which float around the planet, but lightening does not come from radio waves. Tesla figured that out, and recorded several patents based on the fact that static electricity can power the world.
