Thai man invents pollution free generator that doesn’t need fuel

Recommended Posts

I can see the application in low consumption appliances for a short time but how successful would it be in high consumption units like air-con , water heaters , etc hmmm not sure .. 

And the idea itself is not a new one 

Trevor Baylis invented the wind up radio and shot firing or explosives specialists use a wind up gen' to fire a charge ..

Even 1W of LED is enough for the youngsters to do their homework.

 

A step in the direction of a better education if you disregard how great the Thai education system isn't.

we have a few of those light bulbs that run off grapefruits and other assorted fruits and vegies,still waiting for the grapefruit trees to bare fruit.

It is just false economy if you consider just how efficient electricity is compared to the maximum output of the human body.

 

It would take approximately 10 people working flat out for an hour to produce the equal output of 1 kilowatt hour of electricity.

Not sure what the cost of Thai electricity is but let's say 10 Baht/kWh which means each person can, in one hour earn 1 Baht.

the Amazing Thailand is still amazing!!

It amazing that this guy works for the electricity authority, or did work for them, and he clearly has little understanding of what he has put his name to.

 

This is nothing more than an embarrasment to the Thai education system and level of skills.

He spent 16k on his prototype, he could have bought a couple of 300W panels, an inverter and a deep-cycle battery. 

 

And would now be sitting pretty without having to crank the beast.

 

Exactly, and "crank" was close but not quite the right word

 

I wonder is he related to the gangsters that are convinced they can reduce electricity usage by adding the gadget they invented

You beat me to it! I was going to mention the clockwork radio too. The idea was for people living with no power to be able to listen to the radio easily.

I see that was back in 1994. It was manufactured in South Africa.

But of course, no detail of just how much energy it produces for 8 hours.

 

 

Did you watch and listen to the video?

Yeah sadly he passed away last yr but what a great idea he came up with .. 

The Thai version might work on high consumption things if they upscaled the Hamster wheel generator idea .. and went for a long run .. or spin ..

A 1mof concrete (about 2.4 tons) lifted to 3m will have about 70kJ of energy

Would that be enough to do my Wife in?
