This video demonstrates a circuit design I found on YouTube called a Nikola Tesla Free Energy Air Circuit. That video showed a hand drawn circuit diagram that looked simple so I decided to build one. Actually, I ended up building a few. This instructable will demonstrate two of the circuits I made. One is just the basic design and the other is two circuits wired in series with a push button to control an led. I connect the circuits to my house ground and an antenna that was already mounted to the top of my house. The antenna was not being used and had been there since I moved in years ago.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: First, Follow the Schematic to Build the Free Energy Circuit
First you need to build the "Tesla Free Energy Circuit". So find a breadboard and follow one of the diagrams above.
The first diagram shows the basic circuit and the second shows the schematic for two wired in series.
You will need at least the following to build the first circuit:
4 diodes ( I used 1N34A Germanium Diodes)
2 100pF ceramic capacitors
2 100uF electrolytic capacitors
Step 2: Now Use Antenna and Ground Connect to Test Out the Free Energy Circuit
1. Find a good antenna
You can use whatever you want for an antenna. I use the one mounted to my roof. It's large and works well. Any antenna will work. However, the larger the better usually.
2. Get a good ground connection.
You can use your house ground connection which is usually really good. I've also used a metal stake in the ground (works best if the soil is wet).
3. Connect a multi-meter and start testing
a. Test the AC voltage of the ground and antenna
b. Test the DC voltage of your circuit (after connecting the ground and antenna to the circuit)
Step 3: After Hours Testing
I left both circuits connected to the antenna / ground for a few hours while I processed the video. Later on that evening after dinner I checked the voltage on the first circuit and it was near 20 volts! Keep in mind it's still not that much actual power. It would light an LED for a little while but the voltage would drop off quickly. Just being connected to the multi-meter caused the voltage to slowly start do drop. But over time, if dumped into a battery or larger capacitor bank, you could accumulate enough energy to do something more useful than lighting a LED.
Step 4: Testing With a Wimshurst Machine
These tests demonstrate that the circuit receives more than RF (radio) signals. Any electromagnetic radiation can be received. Any electronic device produces an electromagnetic field. These circuits can pick up this energy and convert it to DC power. This video demonstrates the circuit receiving energy "through the air"; otherwise known as induction.
Step 5: Testing With Fluorescent Lighting
Another observable repeatable test done with fluorescent lights. This test demonstrates two Tesla Air Circuits being tested with fluorescent lights. Proving that these circuits receive more than just radio (RF) signals. These circuits will harness energy from anything that produces a strong enough electromagnetic field. Anyone with the desire to build the circuit can demonstrate this proof of concept by repeating the tests.
Step 6: The Story Behind the Testing
More Tesla Air Circuit demonstrations and tests. Plus, the story behind the project and testing. I noticed that the circuits performed better at night. Find out why in the video.
