Four Quadrant Energy Exchange in Magnetic & Dielectric Fields of Induction The Magnetic Field of Induction, Phi, is directly related to the magneto-motive force, or “current”, i, in amperes. A constant, time invariant, M.M.F. constitutes a constant, or “direct current”, magnetic field. This constant M.M.F., or direct current, gives rise to no reactionary Electro-Motive Force, E. E.M.F. is a result of the magnetic field acting to maintain a constant current in a regulatory manner. Here the current, and hence the M.M.F. are already constant, thus zero E.M.F. In this condition no energy is exchanged, thus the magnetic energy is “static”, or all Potential Energy, in Weber-Ampere.Since Electric Activity, or Power, in watts, is the product of this constant current, i, and an E.M.F., E, which is zero, the Activity, or Power is also zero.

Tiny Houses - Forge Ahead FEATURED IN TINY HOMES: SIMPLE SHELTER by lloyd kahn The first two "tiny houses" (mobile homes) I built were included with a compilation of many interesting small structures in this book about "Scaling Back in the 21st Century".If you would like to see the blog I kept while building, click here. After traveling by bicycle for three years, I was ready to have a place to put some heavy books, a sewing machine, and stored foods.In September of 2009 I began building myself a tiny house on a flatbed trailer using salvaged materials.

Solar JOOS – Products Solar power, no compromises JOOS Orange gives you power anywhere without the compromises of other portable solar chargers. It’s tough: Super durable and waterproof, it reliably delivers power where and when you need it. The JOOS Orange works in real-world light conditions (low light, in the shade and even light rain) It works fast: Charges at least 3.5x faster than any other portable solar charger at the same price. The JOOS Orange is the best-performing solar charger under the sun. Powerful and fast The charming $200 micro houses made from junk By Daily Mail Reporter Published: 01:49 GMT, 5 April 2012 | Updated: 20:37 GMT, 5 April 2012 Made from scavenged materials, Derek Diedricksen's tiny houses cost just $200 to make. What the little wooden dwellings lack in space, is made up for in style thanks to plenty of decorative detail. The 33-year-old uses parts of discarded household items to ensure each home has basic functions, the glass from the front of a washing machine is converted in a porthole-like window while a sheet of metal becomes a flip down counter. Made from scavenged materials, Derek Diedricksen's tiny houses cost just $200 to make

Using a Clock Pendulum to Generate Electricity Bill Mehess has invented a system in which a clock pendulum mechanism swings magnets into coils, allegedly generating enough electricity to recharge the clock spring as well as power other devices. by Sterling D. AllanPure Energy Systems NewsCopyright © 2007 PORTLAND, OREGON, USA -- Bill Mehess has devised a closed-loop system that apparently keeps itself operating, while having energy left over for external use, implying some new energy source yet to be appreciated by modern physics. Without knowing of the work of Veljko Milkovic, Bill came up with a mechanical-electrical system that may employ a variation of the secondary oscillation effect described by Milkovic.

Sick to death of consumerism? Find freedom in a tiny house What is a house? I feel this is a dangerous question, which holds within it the seeds of a disruptive innovation, so read on at your own risk. Rethinking what a house is could change your life, and perhaps the world. Let me explain through my own experience.

Slumtube: Affordable Housing Made From Shipping Pallets! Remember the efficient and affordable Pallet House from last spring? Well designers Andreas Claus Schnetzer and Pils Gregor have bested their original design with an even lower-cost shipping pallet home that was completed this year in South Africa. The 'Slumtube' utilizes discarded pallets along with other local materials like clay and straw to make an insulated and affordable home that can withstand the extremely hot and cold temperatures of Johannesburg.

Patent US20130256066 - Mechanical motion system for energy generation - Google Patents This application relates to and claims priority from U.S. Provisional Application 61/636,276 filed Apr. 20, 2012, entitled SYSTEM OF MECHANICAL MOTION FOR POWER GENERATION, still pending. The contents of this application are incorporated by reference herein in their entirety. This application for patent registration is similar to my previous application called “SYSTEM FOR ENERGY PRODUCTION AND EQUIPMENT TO PRODUCE SAID ENERGY” dated Mar. 30, 2012 under number BR 10 2012 007288 2, however, it is different. They are separate and independent applications. In that application, the weight occurs over a rail while in this application the weight is fixed to the end of a bar.

Man converts truck into solar-powered home Living in a truck might not sound appealing, unless it's completely overhauled on the inside to be a bit more comfortable. With a bit of perseverance, carpentry skills and some thoughtful design ideas, fifty-year-old Israeli animator Joseph Tayyar converted a truck into beautiful home. According to Decoist, Tayyar was inspired to begin his project when he saw a television program about homes on wheels. Determined to enjoy the same kind of flexibility, Tayyar spent years fine-tuning his dream: converting a 11.5-meter (38-foot) truck into a real home. © Ilan Nachum Tayyar's improvements include properly-insulated walls that are seven inches thick, a modern kitchen, two separate sleeping areas (one of which is lofted up in the rear), an ample seating area, a dining banquette, work area, and a spacious bathroom.

Artificial photosynthesis breakthrough turns CO2 emissions into plastics and biofuel Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley have created a hybrid system of bacteria and semiconducting nanowires that mimics photosynthesis. According to the researchers, their versatile, high-yield system can take water, sunlight and carbon dioxide and turn them into the building blocks of biodegradable plastics, pharmaceutical drugs and even biofuel. Although renewable energy is making up a growing portion of the world’s energy production, scientists have suggested that the current trends of CO2 buildup in our atmosphere are still likely to lead to serious consequences, and do so sooner than we had anticipated. One way to keep harmful emissions under control could be to trap the CO2 coming out of smokestacks using materials like polymers or sponges. Taking inspiration from Mother Nature, scientists have now devised a system that uses sunlight and water to convert carbon dioxide into a wide range of useful chemicals.

How to Build Dirt Cheap Houses The following list summarizes some of the potential savings from using natural building materials and alternative construction methods. If you’re wondering why they’re not more widely used, it’s because contractors, banks, realtors and others in the housing industry make more profit from the current system. It’s up to you to get informed and switch to a sustainable lifestyle.
