    Don't worry, my title is a bit of an exaggeration but something has appeared which could cause a huge loss of earnings for the greedy oil companies (hopefully!)

    ZPEnergy.com - China -A New Entry in the Magnetic Conversion of Zero Point Energy Has Surfaced!

    Directory:Wang Shum Ho Generator - PESWiki

    A Chinaman has invented a free energy generator and is planning on sharing the device with the world, as a gift from China

    Imagine a device that doesn't need any fuel because it is claimed to run on the energy that surrounds us - Zero Point Energy.

    So what will be the reaction from the world leaders if it takes off?
    No need for any energy plants! No meters in our homes, No need for oil!!!!
    I wonder how they will try to suppress this device.

    I will be following this story with interest

    Lol, such device doesn't exist, and can't exist... It would be perpetuum mobile, and based on the current Physics not feasible...Just on the level of good fun :)
    Not saying that Perpetual motion machine inventors don't have principles. Unfortunately the physical principles they assume are often ones not obeyed by nature.
    Have a good day...

    That's really cool, if it is real. It seems like the inventor is willing to offer this with greed put aside too. The thing i don't understand is the video on wikipedia...seems a little fishy. I guess only time will tell

    First a car that runs on water, now a machine that runs on nothing.

    Is it just me or does this sound a bit like we are going to attempt to power everything on earth, basically by "using the force"?

    ZPE theory states that there is enough energy in the space of a coffee cup to boil all the world's oceans :confused:

    UK-Channel4 program Equinox, Episode- It Runs on Water
    water2burn
    Complete program on Google Video

    There are interesting ideas out there but some of them will never pan out. You think if the ZPE device worked the way described don't you think the Communist Party of China would mass produce that in a heartbeat? Every car could be electric no more oil imports and the economy grows even faster employing more people.

    Well if it's real, I'm sure they're spending time trying to make it more efficient and more poweful before mass producing it.

    why is he looking for investors on Wikipedia?

    every venture capitalist and investment bank and super billionaire in the world would be rushing to meet this guy and finance him immediately?

    This seems a bit like the Nigerian email scam...just with energy...and chinese people :boggled:

    Any suitably ignorant mass of people is always a ripe target for pseudoscientific exploitation.

    I have some magic beans for sale, if anyone would like them.

    however they are stuck in a bank account in Lagos and i cannot retrieve them since all my currency is in rubledollarpounds, a special currency that nobody uses but me.

    If you will kindly email me your bank accounts and passwords, i will promptly remit with these important and magical beans.

    thank you and i look forward to providing you with this fantastic bean based magical miracle and a long fruitful relationship

    graciously

    That word pretty much equates to calling a black man a nigger or a latino a spic.

    You could be right, there have been scams mentioned on the Peswiki site before, luckily they are usually identified quickly and proven wrong by other experts.

    I wouldn't be surprised if oil companies have a department whose task is to quickly identify such business threatening inventions and either buy the invention and rights outright or even use less ethical methods of removing the invention from public knowledge.

    I just wish that some invention like this will exist and soon! I'm sick of being ripped off by oil companies :mad:

    Well no. A man from China is a Chinaman the same way a man from England is an Englishman, the same way a man from France is a Frenchman. I don't see any insult in simply using a word to denote gender and nationality in identifying the sex and nationality of someone.

    Now if he said, "Chink," then I think you'd have a case.

    This is beginning to sound more and more like one of those projects that George Jetson is working on and can never make work, causing Mr. Spacely to pop up on the ginormous video screen and yell "JETSON!!!!" and then fire him for wasting the precious time and money of Spacely Sprockets.

    :cool:

    time for a Big Lebowski segue


    The Dude: Walter, the chinaman who peed on my rug, I can't go give him a bill, so what the fuck are you talking about?
    Walter Sobchak: What the fuck are you talking about? The chinaman is not the issue here, Dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.

    Pretty much! It's the, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride theory on energy production.

    Now this is an interesting renewable energy source:
