Wow.

I reciprocate Gun's comment...

Saw a program about this ages ago. ;) Had some Xmas tree decorations power themselves from nothing but Radio Waves, and a Plasma Screen being powered over a distance (without being connected to its plug socket).

Very interesting. ;)

Didn't Nikolai Tesla invent power transfer, without cords, a long time ago? I wonder if its finally going to see more widespread use.

I was going to post a question about that GL, about radio waves, satellite signals, current wireless phone signals... where is the limit for this possibility? Also, with the cancer research as of late and trying to link cell phones to head/brain neoplasia, I was curious if a breakthrough like this could be added to the possibility. (whether it is fact or fiction I don't know)

Tesla made a lot of wondrous inventions and claims. This barely taps his theories and very few put his ideas to public practise. Besides screwballs and colleges. Tesla theories are to modern electrical engineering as linux, which is free and better also, is to the windows consumer market you could say. With that bad analogy I'm saying we will never get close to a free energy state, so don't hold your breath for more energy-capture systems. Despite the coolness. This device is only a step up for posers at your local Starbucks.
Could crack the sucker open and plan a nifty science fair project if you like. ;)
