    Anyone know if this works for not? Information?


    Actual blueprints

    THis is a link to the site that tested it

    I very much doubt this is antigravity. Even that second site you put up said it was probably some kind of magnetic force that produced the observed effects. I have seen nothing of this kind before with any scientific credibility, so for now I'll treat it as either a hoax or a misunderstanding on the inventor's part.

    My reaction as an electrical engineer is that the circuit is very crude, it could greatly be improved by using Power TRIACS and a microprocessor to check it at various frequencies, I conclude it has not been designed or put together by anyone more skilled than a car mechanic. Having said that I am aware that fires in running high power electric motors have been known to produce weird shaped flames, I have heard this from more than one source. I concur that it does seem likely that the effect is more about magnetic effects on plasma. Remember that in a fusion reactor huge immensly powerful toroidal electromagnets are used to confine plasma in such a way it does not touch any matter and thereby cool.

    As for 'electromagnetic gravity' this is well understood and used to run maglev trains run without direct track friction. Look up 'maglev' on google, MAGnetic LEVitation.

    It is not 'artificial gravity'.


    The IEEE is the professional body of electrical and mechanical engineers it is a credible source though only members have access to it's database papers, here is an abstract of a paper.

    The following article is dated as 1987.

    Effects of magnetic fields on combustion and gas-flow were studied. Methane, propane and hydrogen gases were burned, and flames of these gases were exposed to gradient magnetic fields up to 1.6 T and 220 T/m. Flames bent so as to escape from magnetic fields of higher intensities. Apart from the combustion experiments, flows of gases such as carbon dioxide and oxygen were exposed to magnetic fields up to 2.2 T and 300 T/m. The flows of these gases with a flow velocity 20-140 ml/min were blocked or modified by the magnetic fields. The changes of flame-shape and gas-flow by magnetic fields are understood to be the result of the role of oxygen. Under the intensities of magnetic fields concerned, oxygen gases as paramagnetic molecules are not concentrated but are aligned so as to make a "wall of oxygen". The wall of oxygen presses back flames and other gases.

    I am sure that even the victorians were aware of this 'phenomina' I will add an edit if I can find a reference.

    EDIT:

    I have found a book reference to the work of:-

    Hendrik A. Lorentz
    The Nobel Prize in Physics 1902
    Nobel Lecture
    Nobel Lecture, December 11, 1902

    In which "The various effects on flames of eletromagetism is discussed"
    is mentioned but no specific detail is given.

    It seems he still created a very strong magnetic field from only a 9v (from what I've read). That seems to be something worth looking at?

    Yeah but how much current? remember it is current multiplied by voltage = power. I'd say the current was probably no more than 10-20 amps which will create a pretty good field. The other thing is that the strongest field is actually created when you disconnect the voltage (that's the way an ignition coil works, 12v in and something like 8000 volts out). So if the the wire used to make the coil was really good quality it could generate a very short duration high intensity field, as he says, it seems to have generated such an EMP as to damage his cooker electronics. When we design electronics to operate high power machinery we always take into account this EMP field and protect the electronics accordingly.

    Honestly, nothing out of the ordinary on any of it.
