    Vetical wave electricity generator is the way to go,
    Using a propeller in the sea generates little electricity, but my vertical wave technology means we can have tonns of pull on an electric generator dynamo.

    What do you think?

    I believe with enough of these, we can have electric cars, plains, trains and heating for the world with 0% pollution!

    I believe I have seen better heads on a glass of beer. Hydraulic heads, dotcomrade. And with enough generators coupled to arms of beer drinkers, we could accomplish same thing.

    Keep brainstorming, maybe try some engineering first to save time and, um, energy.

    (Surface) sea wave aren't high enough and move very slowly... So you get only very little energy (at one time) and most of them will be lost to friction trying to move the gears and belt very very slowly. In the end you don't get any positive net energy output with your machine, so it won't work.

    Best one is using tidal: on the night you collect water in a dam, then on the day you release as hydroelectric.
    Also you can use underwater current. But this need underwater propeller. There's underwater sea "highway" (that transport cool water to equator), and also seawave itself which create shallow underwater current.

    Good call.

    That's true. I've never been a fan of costly-to-engineer gismos either, even when efficiency is good after construction expense.

    I had a similar invention, after looking at existing energy sources currently idle. Locally I found the forest industry log booms and docks moored all along the (large tidal range) BC coast. They go up and down with the tides, like clockwork, so the energy is pretty constant and reliable. Moreover, they are mostly far removed from the power grid where electricity, to our shame, comes from small gas powered generators.

    A dock's vertical movement could supply modest marina needs. I reckoned the cheapest low-friction gearing solution to be large clock-springs essentially (they actually buffer the unwanted wave movement), made of recycled lumber strapping bands (temper the steel to spring steel). The dock requires pilings anyway. So you don't have to build much or get your feet wet.

    Could work to charge some batteries, any estimate on yield?
