I believe that Joseph Newman has an idea that may work, but is too expensive or impractical to build to power a medium size home. I think that Joseph Newman is not capable of getting a three or four-year computer or electrical engineering technical college degree at an accredited school. I do not think that it would be a wise investment to invest any money in Joe's machine development efforts because the money will be squandered on more of the same activities that Joseph has been doing for the past many years--promotional exhibitions in large rented stadiums, more videos, repairs to broken down prototypes, yet more prototypes of various sizes, legal fees, law suits, and web site development. I think that Joseph must have gotten his right hand index finger chopped off and replaced by one of his middle toes, and that watching his hand gestures in his various videos is distracting for this reason. Because of Joseph's lack of formal education his dealings with other people is impaired by poor judgement. If someone else would have carried these ideas forward, we would all have the choice to order a Joseph Newman Energy Machine over the web, and major cities would have a couple of contractors certified to install them in homes. I think that Joseph should mend fences with people whom he has conflicted. I think if Joseph would have been magnanimous, informed, schooled, a cooperative team building player, humble, skilled in machine-shop work, calm, relaxed, not as paranoid, not as much a salesman, a good businessman then the machines would have been available a year or so after they were invented.
The reason that Joseph's motor-generator is too expensive is that it uses a huge length of wire, and for whatever reasons the price of copper has gone way up in the past few years so that Joseph's medium-large size machines would cost 15 to 20 thousand dollars.
Contrast this high expense to that of taking a used car and converting it to using a Joe Cell--Kits are available for about $400. Once done, you should have free energy to use in whatever way that you want. Oldspammer 18:31, 18 Nov 2007 (EST)
For Jean-Louis Naudin http://www.josephnewman.com/A_Cooling_Effect.html JNaudin509 at aol.com
I was visiting the web page above and noticed a table of temperature readings. The accuracy and number of readings were not impressive.
I have a slightly higher quality multimeter (that measures true RMS AC waveforms) that I bought a number of years ago. It came with a temperature probe. The digital meter is able to display temperature readings in both Celsius and Fahrenheit degrees.
My meter is one of those that can display a reading of 0 to +/- 2.999 before the digits overflow (and the scale automatically changes to the next higher one), however the temperature readings that come out of the device are nowhere nearly as many significant digits. (This dynamic range of this old meter is not as good as my current day computer sound card that can do 96 k samples per second at 24 bits in stereo with very low noise and excellent SNR.)
I determined by experimentation that the temperature probe attachment is actually a non-linear resistor and that by putting my digital multimeter into resistance measurement mode that I could accurately measure the resistance of the probe at any one particular instant in time. The resistance readings were always gradually changing upwards or downwards just a little bit indicating that the probe was much more sensitive to its environment than the temperature mode on the meter would imply. I realized immediately that by carefully calibrating all of the resistance readings, plotting or curve fitting them, and then mathematically modeling the resistance of the temperature probe that I could generate much more accurate temperature readings, and gather more of them in response to experimental stimulus of the probed environment.
From what I am able to remember from one of my previous projects involving industrial control process measurements, a thermistor can better track temperature variations if the mass of the thermistor probe is quite small, and thereby quicker to react to changes in heat or cold of the surrounding environment.
If you need to do so, please redo some of your prior experiments by using a computerized data logging system that uses accurate measurement of the resistance of calibrated thermistors to quickly and accurately gather experimental temperature data. The data can then be converted from resistance measurements back into accurate temperature readings. The volume of data collected by an automated system permits better and more accurate analysis of the information that will ultimately enable better mathematical modeling of the experimental system(s) under test.
I seem to remember from 20 or so years ago that some semiconductor companies had come up with temperature measurement integrated circuits with all sorts of compensations and calibrations pre-done for you. The units were able to provide very accurate digital output of the measured temperature, and the number of pins on the IC package were relatively small in number. Oldspammer 19:41, 18 Nov 2007 (EST)
I began my electronics experimentation work in the mid 1970s. I began using wire wrap and solderless bread boarding in the early 1980s. I got an IC-Master two volume set vintage 1983.
My suggestion to Stanley Meyer reproduction experimenters is to use as pure a rectified sine wave as possible into the water capacitor. To this end, rather than use a 555 timer like circuit that is filtered somewhat by inductors to approximate a rectified sine wave input waveform into the water capacitor, instead use a function generator IC like the XR2206, ICL 8038, or similar. A near perfect small signal rectifier can be achieved by using a high-gain op-amp circuit and signal diodes. Ideally, you would follow Stanley Meyer's plans of using a ramp generator modulation on the amplitude of the sine wave pulses, and a pulse gating circuit too that would stop the pulses periodically.
Perhaps it was the frequency of the periodic gating that minimized the energy usage.
A resonance oscillation would then be more readily established by any "tank circuit" constructed using a water capacitor, some inductors, and supplying a sine wave as its input. Pulsed LEDs would be the next stage of development, but what phase angle should the pulses be applied and for how short a duration? Stan's idea was to maximize voltage, but minimize current. In resonance in a tank circuit, voltage and current are maximized (a certain angle out of phase with one another), while applied energy to keep the oscillations going is minimized. With this maximum current kept in mind, it is important that the wiring resistance and RF impedance be as low as possible (minimize messy wiring connections) to keep losses to a minimum.
In 1981 or 1982 I used "AN-01 Stable FSK Modem Featuring the XR-2207, XR-2206, and XR-2211" to make a 4800 bps modem for audio cassette for my 8-bit microcomputer that I built from ICs, wires, transistors, diodes, heat sinks, transformers, inductors, and solderless breadboards. The app note I might still have burried somewhere says that the FSK modem used phase-continuous sine waves as the basis for its modulator and in so doing would incur little or no distortion troubles for whatever medium carrying or storing the waveforms.
Anyone involved in resonance and frequency math or physics knows that a pure frequency is one that can be decomposed via Fourier transform to a representation having only a single harmonic. A harmonic distortion on a sine wave means that the Fourier transform will contain other contributing frequencies.
Over the years since the early 1980s, the tendency has been away from dual inline package IC form factors to large semiconductor foundry ASIC circuits. Many of these older ICs are in shorter and shorter supply (harder to find). So your experimenter days are numbered in so far as using these rare and disappearing circuits. In future you might have to restrict yourself to constructing ASIC designs, then paying the huge setup and production fee (millions of dollars) to make your own IC circuits.

In building such a device, what parameters are best to optimize if the goal is for maximum quality of battery rejuvenation? Is it the amplitude to the high frequency voltage spikes? Is it the rise time rate of the pulse? Or the width of the pulse? ... and not voltage magnitude? Is it the magnitude of current of the HF spikes? Bedini mentions in one of his videos about impedance optimization being important--in which loop is this most important--driving battery circuit, or voltage spike to diode to charging battery circuit?
In the driving battery (the one not being charged): would putting in a series resistor be a good or bad plan to reduce the discharge from it? Would putting in a resonant tank circuit be good to reduce average current running out of the driving battery so that it does not discharge very quickly?
If maximizing voltage of the spike, could a 500 or more volt transistor be used and use a series of more than one 1000 volt rectifiers?
In the circuit diagram, the switch / pulse driver is a 100 to 250 Volt bipolar junction transistor, could this be changed appropriately in the circuit with a Power MosFet? Or would this cause a quick burnout of this kind of transistor if attempted?
What influence does the number of turns in the coil have on circuit operation? If the free energy from the vacuum is best extracted from electromagnetic coil induced delays, then would a longer wired coil be best as in the case of the Joseph Newman energy device, or would this reduce the high frequency effects needed to harness the energy from the vacuum into the battery charging?
I have a couple of spools of wire wrap wire that were originally 1000 feet each. Could stacking these two separate spools on the same common core work instead of winding these in a bifilar fashion? If not why?
Coil wire winding topology / geometry: would a parallel set of insulated fine wire wound as one winding work better than winding a coarser grade single insulated wire due to the skin effect of RF energy in the coil?
If voltage pulse size is not as important, could a lower voltage spike of much higher frequency be done if instead using a Schottky (impregnated gold barrier) low-voltage, high-speed diode work better for certain applications? And if so which applications--faster charging or better quality battery rejuvenation or slower drain on the driving battery circuit?
If the pulse width is to be minimized, and height of the voltage spike is to be maximized, I.E., could be shaped--Would putting in a high-speed R-C programmable width one-shot prevent unnecessary current flow from the driving battery?
In the diagram(s) and write-up on this web page, it says to only use ceramic magnets, but it does not explain why other types of magnets each do not work or do not work as well. Would using smaller, more powerful rare-Earth "super magnets" require less circuit energy to repel to make the motor run?
Air is a gaseous mixture that presents as a resistance to mechanical motion. If the air surrounding the mechanical moving parts were pumped away, forming a vacuum in which to operate, would the circuit operate even more efficiently for its draw of energy on the driving battery? Has anyone tried using a very high level of vacuum to test the circuit behavior?
When components burn out, which ones do? Why--is one due to poor switching time? Or too high a voltage causing breakdown? Or too high a current causing some form of secondary breakdown? Oldspammer 14:08, 10 June 2010 (PDT)
# Use Skype for interviewing people.Telephone interviews should be avoided if possible because of crappy sound quality.Instead consider using Skype and use Sound Blaster Audigy 2zs sound card or similar software that has "record what you hear" option that would record Skype conversations excellently. Afterward, high data rate recordings can be transcoded using better codecs to lower data rates and reduce file size without losses in quality.Consider also audio volume leveling or companding the dynamic range of the audio so that both interviewer and guests are speaking at the same volume levels. This presumes that the interview is setup using lapel microphones or shot-gun microphones that will nicely pickup only the audio of the individual no matter what surrounding activities or if the person wanders or turns their head the other direction. Joseph Newman's earlier videos suffered greatly because people with him not close to the camera could not be heard when Joe asks them for their comments, or a reading from the volt meter, etc.Listeners lose attention to your content if they can't make out what is said. In one show a person with a foreign accent replies to one of Sterling's questions and I can't tell what the heck the European guy is saying due mostly to the muffled lo-fi sound quality from both the phone line and the high compression of the mp3 settings used.
# Newer codecs make file sizes smaller, and lowers bit rates without compromizing fidelity / quality of the recorded video or audio content.Consider using AAC or vbr mp3 or vbr wma. Ultimately the goal would be to use AVC with AAC or AC3 in mp4 or m2ts files.Hauppauge WinTV HD PVR uses component or SVideo or composite video and / or optical audio inputs to record either mp4 or m2ts or ts video file format using variable bit rate compression set in the device settings options.Alternatively, non HDCP HDMI content in 1080i or 720p can be recorded via fast computer and an inexpensive PCIe x1 AverMedia Aver HD DVR card. Recordings can be done from HDMI or SVideo or Component or Composite video sources to mp4 files using higher data rate CBR AVC and AAC--necessitating transcoding for post-production file size optimization that can be done nicely by some of the newer Nvidia parallel processing Cuda supporting video cards. I am using the GTX 570 with an Intel i7 - 2600 and the transcoding speeds up from 0.7 of real time (slow) to 4.5 of real time (faster).
# If upgrading to video, use good cameras / webcams and nice lighting (arranged correctly behind the camera pointed at the subject matter).
Lots of new / free energy machines are shown in garages. The lighting levels are usually very poor.One trick that I learned from "The Lab With Leo Laporte" was that still cameras could take "ISO brightness bracketed photos" that could be combined into one excellent image using Photoshop or similar. Bracketed photos take 3 separate pictures (hopefully shake-free from a tripod)--low, medium, and high ISO gain images. By mathematically combining all three images, this can greatly improve the dynamic range of an image so that almost all areas of the picture could be seen with excellent clarity. Bright spots are thereby dimmed by the lower ISO shot, medium spots are recorded as usual, and dark spots are brightened by the higher ISO shot.
A good camera has a large area image sensor to capture more available photons (light energy) using the same low noise sensor technology as the less expensive cameras, thereby lowering the noise levels even further, permitting either better dynamic range, or higher ISO settings be used before noise artifacts degrade the image quality. A good camera usually has a nice selection of good lenses available for it with nice wide-angle, telephoto, and low F-stop for low lighting or fast motion capabilities. The lens' f-number is better when as low as possible. Most consumer still cameras have lens f-numbers of f2.8 to f5. Better lenses have f-numbers like f2.0 or f1.4. For example, Google (Stanley Kubrick Barry Lyndon candle-lit OR candlelight lens NASA Zeiss f0.70) to see what I'm talking about. Both Kubrick's camera and lenses were priceless one of a kind items towards which one must aim one's own intentions should one try to hope to have similar successful low-lighting or fast motion shots.
The cameraman has to be thinking about scene lighting when he uses autoexposure modes because a camera quickly becomes dazed or dazzled by lighting or bright colored objects in the scene that shine right into the camera lens, forcing the camera's autoexposure to darken the entire rest of the image, dramatically lowering the lighting / exposure quality of everything else in the shot. Most thinking cameramen hit the "backlighting mode" button (if that fixes everything), or switches the camera to manual exposure and adjusts it quickly to not spoil the entire shot. To do all of this, the cameraman has to know how to operate the camera properly.
Lots of times a video is posted to YouTube or Google Videos, and the picture resolution is reduced by a huge factor. Knowing this, LCD volt meter readings must be quickly shot from a distance of about 4 inches to 1 foot with a macro lens focus adjustment so that the reading practically fills the entire video picture frame to clearly view the reading at such low resolutions (and maybe low lighting conditions too) in the final viewed video. I do not care if the quick close-up zoom / macro physical movement makes people watching dizzy, as long as the small, hard to see volt meter reading is registered nicely within the shot / scene. If such a movement is quick, the auto-focus on the camera must be quick in the low light conditions to quickly focus the shot on such a LCD volt meter--yet another reason for a good sensor and good low light lens to permit such quick autofocusing.
Autofocus is usually done through a separate through-the-lens sensor that "looks" through a hologram. When the sharpness of the hologram happens, the picture is in focus. When there is low lighting, the sensor has a much tougher job to even see its hologram let alone notice that it is sharp. If you have a cheap camera with a poor lens system attached to it, the camera may never focus properly in such low lighting conditions.
For further information about cameras, Sony has some development videos concerning the upgrade for movie studios to using 4k imaging equipment and the challenges with designing professional camera and editing systems that will use this technology.
See Sony web page on it OR

Reply to MileHigh's April-17-11, 10:41:21 AM comments...
Maybe I'm completely wrong, and I apologize if this is so, but...
What is to say that the buoys are NOT tethered on a reciprocating cable line, and NOT acting like a teeter totter / seesaw with a small shifting weight of air between them with a switched ratchet flywheel used to keep the momentum going, and that the buoys and air lines are NOT completely rigid with respect to water pressure effects?
What I'm saying is that the buoys and connecting hoses are extremely likely to be rigid and not subject to water pressure influences... The differing weights of the two counter balanced buoys is what is causing the differing buoyancies that results in the observed motion used to generate moving magnetic fields in proximity to pickup coils.
The initial / starting input power would only be needed at a point about half way down or so for each buoy whilst they were side by side to pump a little bit of air from one buoy side into the other.
At some position in the travel of the buoys, the valve controlling the direction of the small air pump transfer between one buoy and the other would open, then switch directions to reverse the process, and maybe the pump could be shut off during the transit times when the buoys were about half way in the tank level? Because the entire set of buoy tanks and air line hoses are completely free of the influence of water pressure, the required effort to shift air from one buoy tank to the other remains just the nominal pressure differential regardless of the depths of either buoy tank. Obviously, for a brief moment, no pumping action is needed in order to equalize pressures in both set of buoys by simply opening the air line between them.
The elasticity of the air pressure equalization may be the factor producing any over-unity effects for this system?
After pressure equalization, then the air pumping would be required to shift the air weight from one side of the teeter totter / seesaw to the other side.
If it were practical, the energy from the flywheel could be used to mechanically impart energy to the pump, eliminating the need for an electrical pump in the first place making the input energy side be zero once operation was initiated via winding-up spring to initiate operation of the small air pump?
How can you criticize a system's behavior if you are only poorly guessing at its design characteristics?
Why must the air pump used by you in your mental replication be "a huge air compressor" with lots of PSI pressure requirements to displace water pressure, and all the inherent mechanical losses unless you intended for the buoys to be affected / influenced by large water pressures and unbalanced hydrodynamic resistances? If this was so, then have you deliberately intended to trick others that the system you describe (that will not work) is the one being used by these Hidro+ guys?
If so, have you presumed that the system's operation is impossible in you own mind and want to pass this thought onto other people reading your information?
I suppose if you were the Discovery Channel's Myth Busters trying to hoax a non-replication of the unit, then you would embarrassingly use the design elements that you have suggested, and hope that everyone would be tricked by your questionable design reasoning or that no one would notice that their original machine might actually work?
The Myth Busters never request assistance from any other people who have successfully replicated / built tricky projects to make dammed sure that they get it right, making critical viewers laugh at them while they scientifically poop their pants.
Someone who was honestly investigating this scientifically would go sign the dammed NDA, and witness the thing or would reserve judgement until they did see the full patented schematics / engineering drawings to know for sure what physics / engineering principles were being used.
In my explanation of it, optimizations could be done by using longer runs for the buoy floats to go before changing directions, but the hoses and buoy tanks would have to withstand a greater water pressure due to deeper water travel. There would also be diminishing returns in so far as the length / volume of hosing that the air would have to be pumped. Pressure volume equals work (or whatever) and this would increase with longer runs / taller water tank columns. The expense of bigger water tanks, longer hoses able to withstand greater depths without deformation would be problematic at some point too.
Google video search for ("machine to die for the quest for free energy") to see an example of a couple of perpetual motion machines, especially the Ferris Wheel type run by the guy in France.
Google video search for (angular force generator) to see a couple of examples of the teeter totter / seesaw method of balance plus recoil spring using gravity to generate a rotating shaft from which energy is generated. This machine could probably be designed to use a capacitor bank rather than a battery, and then it would be clear that the machine and not the battery was powering the test loads.

Off the top of my head I noticed the following things:
The inefficient conventional shop motor used by the busters was enormous and would / did drain the driving battery within seconds because it drew a sizable number of Amperes current in order to run.
For all we know it could be worse than a car's starter motor? (Hundreds of Amperes)
The inefficiency of the motor stemmed from the fact that it was off the store shelf purchased, did not use permanent magnets in either the stator or the armature (this kind is unavailable / generally difficult to find) so one of the opposing magnetic fields had to be generated by drawing further current from the driving battery, and the rotor would have a magnetic field interaction topology that would run far below 50% efficiency. Because the big motor was of inefficient conventional design, it did not employ any pulsed magnetic field drive mechanisms under control of the battery recharge circuitry, but instead drew its heavy current continuously (very high power & torque, moderate RPMs). The energy consumption specifications of this motor were never described to let the viewer know how much energy loss there was in this one system component.
There was an error working with the wiki: Code
Maybe the pickup coils had a slightly heavier / coarser magnet wire thickness so that the busters could not create coils having as many windings as are conventionally used in Bedini motors? The coils were wound not around nice plastic bobbin forms. Busters, if honest about it, could have tinkered with the coils to determine if inserting and using any different shaped or types of ferrous cores (into the plastic bobbin forms) could be used to concentrate / boost / optimize any incident moving magnetic fields. The Bedini motors typically use a transistor switch trigger coil wound in bifilar manner with the pickup coil winding and these coils are supposed to propel the motor armature, but this option looks to have been ruled out?--and clumps of the coils' leads seem to be interconnected in a way not presented to the viewer.
To make matters worse, there were no moving magnetic fields for the coils to pick up because the moving / armature flywheel being spun in front of the pickup coils had no magnets of any kind affixed to it (these are conspicuously missing in the busters' initial block schematic diagram too). The material of the flywheel was not described--if ferrous, this would draw any existing magnet's field flux away from the coils. The outer diameter of the flywheel appears to be smaller than to be able to present a magnet in front some of the coils' centers? In one picture the coils are mounted on plywood of 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness. This distance alone will significantly reduce the intensity of the magnetic flux presented to the coils, especially when there is no ferrous core material to intensify / concentrate the magnetic flux / field strength. To concentrate the magnetic fields into a ferrous core, the distance from the magnets to the core should be as short as possible without the risk of the magnets colliding / scraping into the coil pickup cores, say less that 1/32 inches via careful adjustment and oscilloscope measurement of the coil outputs while the magnets are in motion.
The MIT guy or the busters provided a high level block schematic diagram that was very simplified so that its operation was dubious to start with. They did not employ the proper two battery banks used by Bedini: 1. running battery to operate the circuit, and 2. battery to be recharged. It is likely correct that a battery in the midst of being discharged has an input impedance to charging that is not conducive to using so called radiant energy spikes from coils as a charging source? Busters did not outline any of the conventional equations involved to estimate or predict the amount of induced current in the pickup coils that was to be the source of their so called free energy produced--had they done this, they would have had to have provided the field strength of the magnets used that were to be mounted on the flywheel, and the distance the faces of the magnets were to be set on the flywheel from the pickup coil ends, since everyone knows that magnetic field strength varies inversely with the distance raised to some power. The current induced would also be in proportion to the rate of change of the magnetic flux presented to the pickup coils--so they could also calculate the needed RPMs of the motor to achieve some stated goal of induced current. The circuitry to collect the induced coil energy was not disclosed--all the viewer sees is the pickup coil leads fastened together via twisting and some solder. For all we know, had there been any, the incoming collected energy could have been cancelling each other out by being out of phase with the other coils? Bedini motor circuits typically use a high voltage diode to direct the high voltage coil pulse spikes (per each coil?) to the battery to be recharged--that appeared to be missing also?
Bedini had always claimed that the high voltage, high frequency, radiant energy spikes from the coils induced a greater charging reaction in the battery being charged than they probably should have according to conventional wisdom. Bedini attempted to characterize one of his systems as acting like a negative resistor. The commercially available car battery desulfator circuits use high frequency pulses to attempt to recondition batteries.
The magazine article clips below describe how a school girl used the motor in a science fair, yet the busters' and a MIT professor couldn't do this? Bedini suggested that, if honest, the busters should have asked for some sort of critical supervision from himself or others when they attempted this reproduction.

Video from a couple of guys who did successfully reproduce the SSG motor that rejuvenates older batteries without discharging much of the operating battery's charge.
In videos and information that I have read within the past couple of years, it is explained how ZPE is known to exist & work (contrary to notions popularly attributed to Einstein?): liquid helium was attempted to be frozen solid. Just as the atoms were about to freeze, they would gain energy from "no where" and remain in liquid state. The source of energy is the zero point energy of the vacuum or ether.
I've noticed something about Wikipedia: scalar waves, longitudinal Tesla coil emissions, mention of the theories of successful Tesla experimenter Eric Dullard are just not treated seriously--why is all serious mention of such information nowhere on Wikipedia?
Nazi Bell, Searl Effect Generator, Hutchison Effect -- all the same sorts of stuff--Ether physics. When a person of the scientific stature of Boyd Bushman former Lockheed Martin Chief Scientist says that Searl and Hutchison are OK, why do wiki science contributors not permit these citations of legitimacy? Why no extensive coverage of these important science topics? Maybe it's because of Einstein?
In the early 1970s it was explained to me that Einstein's wife may have been the smart one. Recently I've read that all of the 1905 papers were in her name. Just Google (Einstein Thompson Maxwell Lorentz). All sorts of interesting reading comes up--some documents mention of Zionists promoting Einstein over his wife (supposedly because women of the time were not supposed to be smarter than men?).
The conspiracy theorists say that Einstein was a means to halt all serious study of extracting ZPE or of FTL scalar or longitudinal Tesla coil transmissions? Supposedly, according to these "engineering school" claiming documents about him, almost all of Einstein's early theories were documented by his predecessors--hence the Google search includes Maxwell, Thompson, Lorentz, etc?
