Been there and played with Nitinol

Nitinol pretty much does what is claimed for it. However, after playing around with it we found it retains heat longer than that heat can be efficiently dissipated. The material requires an input of heat and a removal of that heat within its cycle of operation. Unless the design is highly engineered we found no way to use it as a prime mover. Of course we never tried every conceivable engineering solution.....

I would be curious

I would be curious about the long term susceptibility to fatigue?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Still haven't heard about this stuff?

It's amazing how they can keep existing things nonexistent.....

The Narrator at 13:24 said why Nitinol will

never be used: "... it will serve a national interest."

The Energy Dept spokesman said, "We'll take this up with the Bilderberg Group and get back to you."

This is another astounding revolutionary invention right up there with the other greatest energy invention of the 20th century: the energy-on-demand hydrogen thingy invented by Dennis Klein in early 80's. How'd that work out for us?

Govt has invented its own brand of perpetual energy calling it "slave labor". They only recently perfected their ability to create never ending wars, false flags, terrorism-on-demand, even false environmental catastrophes.
To continue my energy-related rant, Govt is no longer concerned about thrashing the 2nd Amendment - in the very near future all their anti-citizen personnel will have body armor that can withstand even a 50mm cartridge; they are ramping up development of American-killing robots, and just to be sure - lead is now a "terrorist metal" and its use will become illegal.

I'm praying for a peaceful 2014 with wars diminishing and a realization by tptb that their power trip is really not a good idea. I'm praying for an overwhelming grass roots movement to rally around a genuine Libertarian statesman like Ron Paul; with all American citizens in his corner we can overcome anything.
From my mouth to God's ears. Happy 2014. God bless all Libertarians ... and trumpet players.

Thanks for posting!People

Thanks for posting!

People are making their own energy devices and uploading their tests and results to youtube. The channel for this video is full of videos. There are many more channels like this.

If you watch enough documentaries online you can spot the channels that are really doing some interesting work, in other words (life changing work), and copy them. Its free any way. Then spread what you know. Remember, they are smart people, and watching videos themselves and sometimes putting up channels they recommend from their experience of information.

Something great for storing

Something great for storing energy but after the amount of reading I have done, I am of the opinion that any sort of "free" energy is going to need something exotic and mundane arrangements of magnets and what not just isnt going to do it.
With that said however, I have no illusion as to who stands to lose should cheap(but not free) energy come about.
Something I suggest everyone look at is the E-cat device. I have been paying some attention to it and so far, it hasnt proved to be a scam, yet it also hasnt taken off either, its kinda just lingering for the time being.
The guy behind it doesnt exactly have a stirling reputation, but he hasnt exactly tried grabbing all the money he can with this either. Plus the fact that other very similiar things are now starting to pop up in places(even the US gov I think I read). He might be stalling for time while getting by ok, which seems rather odd. However, the alternative to what hes done and the best I can come up with is a methodical process to slowly get it introduced until the cats out the bag so to speak. If you think people really will try and silence you, you dont suddenly proclaim to the world you have all the answers. You do almost basically something like Rossi has done.
Eitherway, if this is something serious, we will see because its getting too widespread to contain.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.


I like this one

The Germans were working on this process during WWII

It was a synthetic fuels program. The only problem I see, from an efficiency stand point, is how much energy do you have to add to break down the compounds and also what materials are left over? This process makes a whole lot more sense than dumping it in a land fill.
IMHO, everything we use should be recycled or composted, but that's just me and it's voluntary.

Look, I'm upvoting the Granger

Good Garbage Bump...

I'm more interested in the perpetual motion machine though

The perpetual motion energy is cool

But the energy out of garbage.. (and they could also collect the methane).. I like it because it does two things.. cleans up the garbage and makes fuel.

Thank you for the bump. Note, I bumped you too.

Og gosh what a happy new year

Happy New Year Ira Freedom and your family. And may you achieve your goals to be energy independent.. I really hope it happens for you!!

Can spring back 55 tons per sq in

With Skynet (NSA) looming around and Google purchasing robotics companies, maybe they are working on a Terminator cyborg to exterminate r3VOLution.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

That's really interesting, this metal, Nitinol woud be perfect,

Not for a motor, but for an exoskeleton! The ability to control the movement with heat/cold could easily be regulated with electronics and a computer, this metal could make an Iron Man suit. I bet they are working on a Nano-Nitinol gizmo now, the possibilities are endless.


Shape shifters too!

Picture it: Super nitinol shape shifting exoskeleton......

Hey this stuffs been around for a while now, I'm sure they've been playing with it enough to do things that are not even crossing our minds here......

And the mad men going in that direction with this stuff are all doing it in the name of "American Exceptionalism" ............ of course.........

They should make car bumpers & bodies out of this stuff

Your car gets dented just run it through a hot water car wash and the dents will be gone.

Something like this?

Gone also would be body shop and

insurance co. profits. This is why big biz likes to kill this kind of stuff
