13 Year Old Harvests Electricity from Air

Here is Max Loughan – a 13 year old who made an energy harvester to take radio waves and other energies from the air and turned it into electricity to power LEDs.

It is similar to crystal radio technology and harvesters are not new, but seeing that a very bright 13 year old is passionate about invention and what it could do for the world is worthy of praise!

We need to encourage more children to move in this direction. Awesome job Max and thumbs up to your Tesla T-shirt too!

    Well I hope he won’t drop out of school, where he can learn 2+2=5 and reach is full potential in a 9 to 5 job where we are all meant to be by the powers that be !

    But for real I hope his dad is wise enuf to help his kid patent his invention so that they can be financially secured and be free of the system…

    • But will the patent office except such a device? They are tied to the big Oil and Power companies and won’t allow this type of energy to go any farther. Sad greedy people!

    Excellent.. The controlling forces are starting to be out numbered.. If Max ever visits Australia he can come to my house and i’ll show him my work with inductors and motors 🙂 It is soo true that you can generate a much stronger magnetic field for work then the required DC current running through that coil… I measure over 200% magnetic field strength (and thermal energy apparently) then a coil driven from a DC only (non pulsed) source. Simply pulse the coil and collect back emf,,. as power is returned, the forward current in the coil is still present.. When I realized this the biggest smile was on my face for weeks… 🙂 Been working on a modification to my generator that dropped an intake valve and smashed it back up into the head… nothing else to do with it now but play with this knowledge 🙂 fast switching is the key.. and the hurdle…
