Free energy? They fail to explain where the energy comes from, so I dont believe it.
From what I have read there are electrodes either side of the protein film, then just add water vapour from atmosphere to make a current flow.
It must have some credence if it was reviewed in the journal Nature

There is another "free" energy collector, collecting electricity from the electro-magnetism all around us!
It does work but only gives very LOW power suitable for minute electronic circuits.

The old crystal sets did not require power, they picked it up from the transmitting stations!!
You can pick up "free" power using a Rectenna, (a rectifying antenna) which converts electromagnetic energy into DC electricity. Invented in the 60's !!

Expecting belief in the perpetual motion machine this promises is a "big ask" to use modern parlance!
However I do wish them luck, but fear "luck" may not be generated!
So many words that don't quite "explain"
Gosh -  even "The creator" didn't manage this!
Perhaps "THEY" are better?
They will NEED to be!  ???

Kim, plot a course for KIR and I'll make sure they keep a slot for you ;) ;D

Thanks for interest guys :)


This one is even better than the last one Tom!


Ronnie - maiden flight has to be done by a test pilot solo (Paul Dewhurst who im sure you know of) so it’s my wobbly iPhone footage from a long way off. I went of the second flight to gather some more flight data with him - it’s a brilliant aircraft 8)


Ian - the hover height is great (climb rate 1200 ft per minute 2 up) but I suspect it won’t float as well as my Otter with the engine off :o [size=78%] [/size]

It’s a wonderful feeling watching something that you have built fly for the first time.
Were you on board or the cameraman?

Look at the hover height on that baby ???

Guys - thought you might be interested in this 2 minute video of the maiden flight of our Skyranger Nynja fixed wing microlight which 4 of us have built from a kit over the last 15 months 8) . It took to the air in the last hour off daylight on Thursday last week on one of those rare days when it wan't blowing a hoolie or the cloud being on the deck ::)

Makes for "Classy reading"!
I wonder on what grounds they appealed?
Watching "Saving lives at sea" ref RNLI ATM.
I wonder if this will feature?

Human "variety" apparently knows NO bounds.
Ho (hum).  ::)
