Radiant Energy from Wind
« on: March 16, 2009, 09:24:27 PM »
Has any one tried to use Teslas idea on a car? Since the radiant energy that he is collecting is primarily static you should be able to collect the large amount of static from a plate area where a solar panel is unusable. This plate could be the inside of a hood scoope that has been chrome coats or an actual metal plate. It could be a skid plate under the car that is exposed to air friction. This combined with a joule thief should give some good results.

Let me know what you think. If you get a chance to try it let me know how it turns out.

This is an easy experiment, build an electrostatic motor from soda bottles (google it), mount pvc pipe on your vehicle with rubbers mounts and glue, wire it up correctly, then drive, depending on your atmoshperic conditions, the faster u drive the faster the motor spins. 747's in the clouds only get about 75 watts i believe so the useful power at sea level doing 65mph aint enuff to make much a dent in anything but you are correct in your thinking.
