Re: HENDO POLYWELL

Anyhow* I backed the project to get myself a white-box. I plan to run some basic experiments by pointing a TV electron gun at it and seeing what happens. I will report back the experimental results but it will take a while, the white box's won't even ship until July 2015 and that's if they ship on s...

Re: HENDO POLYWELL

Before I bust this HENDO POLYWELL myth it just occurred to me the mechanism for electron confinement would be quite different. The electromagnetic polywell has static magnetic fields and probably does need hot electrons to create the potential you describe as it's just bending electron paths so to s...

Re: HENDO POLYWELL

plasma will have ion speeds so high that the rotation of the arrays won't even be apparent in their flight time Good point. A couple of crazy counter points to consider * Actually, just thinking about it, it's the electrons the pollywell configuration has to confine and they don't need to be high s...

Re: HENDO POLYWELL

I don't think the HENDO is using electromagnets/AC Coils. This is the patent http://www.google.com/patents/US20140265690 In one embodiment, the moving magnetic field can be generated by one or more rotors with arrangement of permanent magnets. So its using spinning permanent magnets which is a much ...

HENDO POLYWELL

Hi Guys, So I was pretty amazed by the HENDO kickstarter. Apparantly a fast spinning array of permanent magnets can produce a magnetic mirror of some kind.. who knew.. Check it out : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/142464853/hendo-hoverboards-worlds-first-real-hoverboard I am tempted to pick up...

Re: Monroe's Quantum fusion theory

Will it be engineering or will it be science. Its a very interesting question. I think the fusor forums site is definitely in the engineering camp. The other questions seem to be 'big science' and beyond the scope of what we can hope for here. I agree that certainly for me also the question of how d...

Re: Fusor Computer Modeling

I was new once here too. Software simulation seems such an obvious step for such as seemingly simple device. What little I knew. Like many I was inspired by Dr Buzzards Google Presentation to investigate fusion. The fusor is a mixed blessing since it is in the range of the individual serious enginee...

Re: Fusion's promise

<t>I think humans are just not that 'organisationally' smart. <br/> <br/> I can't think of any examples of success in energy that are not iterative improvements of already net positive energy. A uranium lump is already net positive - just refine. Oil is already net positive energy - just burn. Wind,...

Re: F.I.C.S. Fusion a new concept in fusion

<t>Right so you mean two objects are equipotential when they have the same total energy, mass+kinetic+electrical. So obviously for the earth to be equipotential to a proton in this view the proton would be traveling at light speed but incredible mass energy. Not so much 'up' as in anti-gravity but a...
