History Hacker Fraud.
- Recently seen this guy that does a show on cables History
International Show where he is supposedly going to "hack" Tesla's
inventions, namely by making a bicycle generator by glueing neodymium
magnets to a bicycle rim. That just fine with me and when he
demonstrates it; it does produce 15 volts. Then he goes to make his
hack of the neon tube invention, which was very informative on the
method of gas tube production. But near the end of his show he puts
the bulb on his bicycle generator of only 15 volts and lights it!!!
I have spent years researching bulb discharges through resonant
voltage rise, and also in this resurrection of assets, explored
transformer voltage rise, and found many perplexing things about gas
discharges, (powered through small alternators and resonant circuits).
I am so totally amazed that the history hacker guy can propose to use
some kind of automotive transformer to light a longer neon bulb
through his bicycle generator, especially since in the beginning of
the show he talks it about how when he pedals the generator around
town it will power his GPS locator in New York City, but when he stops
it don't, it even won't, so he put a rechargable battery between the
bicycle generator supply; and then it will. I find it fascinating that
near the end of the show he does the same thing with the neon bulb,
whereby he stops pedaling to make his discourse and the neon continues
I asked Doc about this; saying what kind of battery is that which
will continue a neon discharge after ceasing the power input? Doc,
being more astute then I replied "I think that when he quits pedaling
the wheel is still revolving, it is on a stand." Perhaps so, but I am
dubious and should review this again, as perhaps it is not a fraud.
But I just hate seeing someone do something easy, implying that I have
done it in a difficult manner.
