    Read the claims about this hovering thing. It can run for six months without recharging and it only takes a couple seconds to recharge - let alone that it works at all.

    I think it's a bunch of BS.

    You don't need to be a scientist to recognize a crackpot when you see one. Man I love the pic of John Obik. It looks like a woman who got shot in the face.

    I can't watch the utube video at this point, but a cursory glance at the site seems more like the ravings of a madman than a scientific breakthrough. Their pure energy systems page has a lot of confusing buzzwords that really don't make much sense when you throw them together, and doesn't offer any real explanation of the process. The idea of using ionized air masses to levitate is ludicrous, as ionized gases don't work that way.

    Any power source that needs only 6 seconds to recharge and stores enough charge for months seems essentially impossible at the residential scale, as current battery / energy cell / supercapacitor research can't even come close to that at this point. Oh, and it charges using microwaves? Yeah... that doesn't help their claims, especially when they claim metals are microwave reflective.

    I'd also like to point out that the only Academic connections they mention is using a college machine shop to make their model, using the college as a "resource for R&D" and taking their degrees there, which appear to have taken them 7 years.

    If this is fake, that's some pretty snazzy video editing for a troll. It just seems like a lot of work for, what exactly? The bit about the electromagnetic power source on the website here: http://peswiki.com/index.php/Directory:Project_Home_2010 was pretty interesting as well.

    Just noticed this:

    How utterly convenient. They build a machine that defies all we know that could make them billions and they plan to destroy it in their homemade particle accelerator (or some such thing, their site isn't exactly written in any comprehensible way).

    The BS is THICK.

    I like the part about how they were both recruited at 12 to work on this.

    -edit-

    This is a Portal/Aperature Science spinoff ARG, isn't it.

    Video looks heavy on edit, especially the bit where he circles underneath and over the hovering device with his arm. The lighting on his arm is all screwy.

    my guess is viral marketing for something. Maybe it ties in with a movie or video game somehow.

    I'm with Bumblethumper on this one. This could be some sort of viral marketing for a movie or video game.


    *Looks up instructions on how to build one on google*

    Fixed emf is not only possible but it's in use and has been for a while but not in this way. I'm talking high speed trains and sliding shuttle doors. FIXED being the obvious word here.

    When the chick waved her hands around the thing I could swear I saw video composite artifacts.

    You'll notice the shot never shows her arm directly in the path of what I assume are the wires suspending the object.

    Also, fixed emf doesn't mean the object just sits there, as an emf field is always in motion, and usually means that to stay in one spot the object must rotate/spin.

    That's why the guides on things such as those trains. So the trains don't slingshot somewhere.

    Those trains hover on magnets, against magnets in the track. There's a lot more to it than just "guides".

    This is something else entirely (if it were real).

    If they didn't have the guides (or something equivalent), would they still count as trains?

    Any research involving "energy" that isn't taking place in a legitimate institution is going to be backyard bullshit.

    No, they'd be slingshotted away haha.


    That's why it's not possible. You can't control things "floating" in an emf without having something to "guide" it or hold it to avoid it flying off or spinning crazily. So yes it is possible to "hover" things as long as they are physically restrained from flying away.

    The weird, to me, thing on that basis is the magnetic engines that use the same theories that cannot sustain constant movement (would be the biggest discovery in human kind if they could but last I checked Perpetual Motion was still a myth).
