This 13-Year-Old Invented a Tesla-Inspired Free Energy Device for $14

(WAKINGTIMESInspired by the geniuses Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein, teenager Max Loughan loves to invent things, in fact, he says he has known his entire short life that his purpose was to change the world with his inventions. And he may just do it.

“As cheesy as this sounds, from day one, on this planet that I knew I was put here for a reason,” said Max. “And that reason is to invent, to bring the future.”

Wearing a lab coat while speaking in a televised interview with KTVN Channel 2 in Reno and Tahoe, Nevada, Max explains the free energy device that he made in his parents’ boiler room turned laboratory.

His invention looks somewhat reminiscent of Tesla coil, and operates on some of the same principles described by the electric visionary. The device is rather simple, harvesting electromagnetic energy from the atmosphere, then converting it to direct current which can be used to power electrical devices.

What’s even more incredible is that Max built his free energy device out of materials he purchased for less than $15. That’s right, for the price of an average lunch, it appears that anyone can have access to free energy.

“He created an electro magnetic harvester out of a coffee can, some wire, two coils, and a spoon.”

In a demonstration with KTVN, Max uses current created by the machine to power a strip of LED lights that he had wrapped around his twin brother, astonishing to both his own family and the visiting news crew.

The harvester conducts radio waves, thermal, and static energy, and turns it into electricity. “This wire takes energy from the air.” And the inside the coffee can, “We turn it from AC to DC.” 

Max’s achievement is impressive, to say the least, and the fact that works of Nikola Tesla are now inspiring the next generation of inventors is quite inspiring, although one has to wonder why Tesla’s ideas have taken some 75 years to reach the mainstream.

  1. Nothing new.
    If you run a large loop of insulated wire parallel to HT transmission line you can get free power. Farmer can testify to this. The problem is you can’t get something for nothing. The electrical coupling between is very inefficient but still puts load back onto the grid and can be dangerous, Ask the farmers whos cattle have been electrocuted on fencing wire.
    Physic dictates that for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction this applies to induce electrical current by EMF.

  2. Oh i think we all know why Tesla’s idea took so long…..and why its a 13 year old who thinks he can make it work…………mind you this kid is far from the first, second or even 40th to do this….its just been reported this time is all…… lets see the kid market his idea LOL….yeah right.

  3. It might weaken the ionosphere and/or Earth’s electromagnetic shield if you Harvest too much energy from it. We need that energy to protect us against the sun’s enormous radiations. HAARP is already enough playing eround with our planet’s shield. Be careful what you do with our “Spaceship” :p

  4. As I understand it, we are being drenched in electro-magnetic waves at all times and from multiple sources. If you are unfortunate enough to live close to High-Tension overhead cables and, for your own purposes, decide to harvest some of the ‘free’ electric ‘noise’ that this creates , you may find that you are technically guilty of theft.

    • lol, it would prove to be an interesting court case. This person is charged with stealing invisible spectrum energy, which isn’t actually regulated by anyone, but because they aren’t paying for the energy, they are stealing it. It would get laughed out of court

  5. Sadly, if he were brown they’d have him investigated for bomb making… way to go kid! We need innovators like this young man, in every color.

  6. I feel like I have seen this kid before at the UN, was a video of him being interviewed about this same device.
    The interesting thing is that these ‘free energy’ (I use that term loosely as it isn’t exactly free, it is just using an inexhaustible source) devices have been created before and do exist around the world in many different shapes and sizes. The principle that governs their function does not go against any laws of Newtonian physics but instead, supports and adds to them. In brief;
    There is a pool of ‘energy’ all around us, throughout all of creation, it is a field of unlimited, infinite potential, that is constantly tapped into by planets, stars, solar systems, nebulas, and galaxys. It is not electromagnetic in nature. Yet it’s very nature encompasses all spectrums of all feilds beyond and within the electromagnetic. Thus allowing it to be tapped, if the correct and acute parameters are met, in any plane of existence. It can be used for far more than just creating a flow of electricity through a circuit. Yet with our still relitively primitive and linear human perception we need first harness it for its ability to provide us with clean, inexhaustible electricity, before we move onto its other applications. Such which require us to break free from our linear perception of space-time.

    This device is merely scratching the surface and I feel is actually utilising ambient electromagnetic disturbances caused by high voltage powerlines, and or transmission towers. It is on the right track. However it is, I feel, tapping the wrong pool. Either way kudos to the little grom and I hope he keeps it up, and when he or another human does fine tune this equipment in the future and taps the right pool, tey will offer it at cost of the equipment and it’s matinence for residential uses.
    Industry should be made to pay a higher fee that can then be placed back into offering the equipment to places and people who cannot afford the cost.
