Somehow I doubt this can really work, but I just want to hear some feedback about it. It is not a power saver device. It is a generator. Either way the 2 videos are interesting at the very least.

I didn't watch the video, but I very much suspect it's going to be another one of these scam perpetual motion machines that popped up all over the place in the mid 70's. They are generally looking for capital rather than selling the machines.

This site is trying to sell an e-book on how to make your own. They claim it's easy to do and cheap. Parts will cost under $100. What makes me skeptical is that they want to sell a book rather than an actual machine.

Yup. Sounds like a rehash of the old scam. They're making their money, 100 bucks at a time, and they can always claim you did something wrong when it doesn't work as expected.

Well they have a 60 day no questions asked money back guarantee. I know that doesn't mean too much since most people probably won't have one built within 60 days of buying the book though.

If you're considering buying the eBook, just think of it as money spent educating yourself on the scam of perpetual motion machines. It will never actually work. Can't change the laws of physics.

There's a guy that tows a huge one, on a trailer, around the country trying to raise venture capital. It's basically a big ass flywheel. He impresses people with the fact that there is no perceptive slow-down for hours and hours that he has it setup.
