Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. Throughout space there is energy.
— Nikola Tesla, 1892
When Tesla invented the first wireless communication device, he also discovered a form of free energy radiating throughout the whole universe. He planned on displaying wireless electric power with his Wardenclyffe Tower until it was sabotaged by financier J.P. Morgan.
Tesla conceded that his World Power System project was “retarded by laws of nature. The world was not prepared for it. It was too far ahead of time. But the same laws will prevail in the end and make it a triumphal success.”
Perhaps the the world is now prepared for this technology as small applications using Tesla’s discoveries are finally being revealed to the public.
In a 1900 magazine article, The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, Tesla discusses a machine that can gather heat from the ambient air and other forms of harvesting energy from the natural world.
Just a short 112 years later, in March of last year, scientists in Hong Kong built a graphene battery that turns ambient heat into electric current. This technology was picked up by UCLA researchers who claimed this same discovery as their own, seen in the video below:
More interesting Tesla technology came out earlier this year when a German university student invented a device that harvests electromagnetic waves to charge a battery.
Two more significant achievements have been announced in this month. One was seemingly being rolled out to acclimate the public to this coming technology, while the other quieter story is one where similar technology is already being used to power space propulsion.
Researchers from Washington University unveiled a wireless communication device called Ambient Backscatter that requires no battery.
They describe their device as:
Ambient Backscatter transforms existing wireless signals into both a source of power and a communication medium. It enables two battery-free devices to communicate by backscattering existing wireless signals. Backscatter communication is orders of magnitude more power-efficient than traditional radio communication. Further, since it leverages the ambient RF signals that are already around us, it does not require a dedicated power infrastructure.
They included an informative video explaining the technology and its possible uses:
Now try to imagine this type of self-harnessing power technology used on a larger scale. It’s currently being tested on the International Space Station.
