Perhaps euromoder. The thing that first intrigued me in the site was their claim that their work is based off the work of Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein, I don't quite see where Einstein fits, but can see the influence of Tesla.

Wild claim.
Conspiracy against the idea.
Mythic shape (pyramid).
Videos that show nothing useful.
"Based on" the works of scientists that most people can't comprehend anyway (Einstein) or who's ideas didn't always work (Tesla).

Does anyone really need any more convincing ?

Oh, their free heating system refers to the free engine ... a double whammer !


I'm not surprised by their claims, I'm surprised it's legal to run this sort of "business".

True, sad thing about it is that there's probably one or two items that they sell that do work, at least well enough to keep the myth that the others work going.

I think that it might just be a very small capacitor (probably the whole thing is just a home made cap). Unless I'm not thinking this through right, it could simply be that without the 'device' the voltage spikes too quickly for the analog volt meter to show it, whereas with a tiny capacitor, it gets charged and holds the voltage long enough for the volt meter to display it. Being a tiny capacitor would also explain it dropping in voltage so quickly, as voltmeters usually make crap all difference to capacitors, and there is nothing else to cause the charge to drop (there is a diode stopping the coil completing the circuit).

I'm sure that's exactly what the device in the video was, why else would it need to be shorted across and discharged in between tests?
