11/20/06 - Self-Running Generator powered by Static Electricity

  Interesting article. Walter is right that static is everywhere. But it has 
its set of 'special' problems. I have played around quite a bit with static 
elctricity, even to the point of building my own very large Van de Graf. The 
one thing that I could not do was to hold on to the charge long enough to get 
it to any useful work. It just wouldn't stay in the wires. Every time I tried 
to make a transformer with static, the juice simply ignored the coil, and went 
wherever it wanted to, including right through the dielectric. It was like 
trying to push a rope. I wonder how this guy solved this problem, if indeed 
this is even legit. Another problem is static's dependancy on lower humidity 
conditions. Moisture seems to 'kill' the field, so how does Walter's machine 
perform on a rainy day? I think we need to find this Walter Owens guy, and his 
pending Patent. Mitch
