This Is Exciting, I Just Punked Myself!

No batteries, gas, oil or coolant.
You could use this thing to power your house, barn, whatever.
A regenerating super efficient electric motor with an automatic behind it.

H/T to my buddy Dale, my dad's oldest friend.

Cross posted at Fixer and Gordon's.

I've had Bullshit called so take it at face value until I can look into it.
I put it up right after getting it.

Update two
OHHHKAY, I see where I screwed up now. A nice gentleman pointed out the way I said regenerating violates the second law of thermodynamics.
Gotta love Google, I didn't have a clue.

Second Law of Thermodynamics - Increased Entropy
The Second Law of Thermodynamics is commonly known as the Law of Increased Entropy. While quantity remains the same (First Law), the quality of matter/energy deteriorates gradually over time. How so? Usable energy is inevitably used for productivity, growth and repair. In the process, usable energy is converted into unusable energy. Thus, usable energy is irretrievably lost in the form of unusable energy.

Thus the word regenerative would imply something along the lines of a perpetual motion machine, my bad.
I did find a reference to Mr. Reed and his remarkable engine here;
Conspiracy Central.
It concludes that attempts to locate Mr. Reed were unsuccessful.

Update 3.

Turns out he never did have a self sustaining motor and the video is bogus.
Thats what I get for getting excited and putting it up without thinking critically.

My sincere apologies.

Go here for what happened and where it stands as of right now.

H/T One Fly for pointing me to the error of my ways.
Thanks bud.

    Nice vid, looks good, but real short on specs, don't you think? Does he mean s spinning countershaft is solving everything?

  2. I agree it's pretty spotty.
    I threw it up as soon as I got it.
    I'm sure we are going to hear more about it and when I get a chance, I am going to do a little digging.
    For instance, how do you get the thing spinning in the car in the first place?

  3. From what I found it doesn't look good Busted. It appears he does not have a working model. A link

    I put a video on the blog on a car run by air that may be in production now. Had an air hog plane and it amazed me how long it would fly on this tiny chamber of air powering a single piston motor. Sounded real good too.

    No matter what I like shit like this. Some of the small air cooled motors made these days are amazing in their longevity and fuel effieciency meaning they would be a good partner in an electic vehicle.
