    Scary Ebay auction - free energy!

    Just saw this article linking to the following ebay auction. Note that it's already been highlighted to the UN's nuclear watchdog!

    Is that true, i'm intrigued if it is, do you have a link?

    if such a device exists i would be very surprised it would go completely against all the laws of physics as we know it and would have created a much bigger fuss than new scientist.

    shame but i dont believe one to be in existence.

    nuclear power still the best option we have at the current time though im not sure selling it on ebay to be the best way to go.

    I'm sure that's impossible. Energy cannot be destroyed or created, so where does all the extra energy come from?

    There have actually been several devices created that all test results suggest create more power than they consume or break the laws of physics as we know it in other ways, what's funny though is how they all disappear very quickly after their invention. I think it's a lot to do with the laws of Politics coming into play here, how many jobs would you lose if there was no more need for the power industry?
