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

Recommended Posts

How dumb is that, even by local standards. It needs no fuel, and neither does a horse drawn carriage. Horses for courses, here it happens to be a human who supplies the energy - innovative, I think not!

When I saw the headline I thought, at first, he might be the brother of the Thai guy who invented the Ebola cure but, on reading what is said he might be onto something. The gearing must be quite something but I guess it could be done. Good on him. Maybe short on info and detail but ......just what if it does work? I don't think we should knock him until all is reveled. I await with bated breath.

Peak power output of a top cyclist is about 500 Watts so if Chris Froome wound this generator's spring for 15 minutes if would give us a total potential power output of about 0.125 Kwh. Not everyone is Chris Froome, and of course we are not taking into account the energy spent in the mechanism.

Just another Thai joke, a small one though.

Pretty sure the old boy would generate more power than Chris froome right now,as he

fell off his bicycle recently and is not too flash.

"gear system which needs to be wound up by hand"

 

Now imagine you let an animal do this that runs in a circle. What a future proof invention. The water buffaloes could do this. But no idea how many of such things I would need to power my aircons... 

..you could hitch the animal a large round stone there and grind rice whilst charging the battery.

Thais have never really invented anything, unless you want to count red bull, a couple of gambling games and silly Ebola claims.

+ a bit more … :thumbsup:

BTW - the amusement parks (walkingstreet's) was not mentioned … 🤔

You could use an exercise bike and get some cardio workout at same time.

He can join the doctors who cured Ebola, the researchers who cured HIV and all the other claims down the years. UNLESS he's right of course than he'll be a multi-billionaire and Elon Musk will be phoning soon.

Providing his invention can generate enough power to charge his phone so that he can actually receive calls.

Even if it has a ghosts hope of working, the energy retailers will buy the patent of him and shelve it for ever
