    here is the youtube link to the presentation on dragon's den. I would like to know what happened but i can't find any video after the show was recorded.

    YouTube - Dragon's Den - Vorktex MagnaCoaster Power Generation

    Here is this guy's youtube site where he has this thing running on a dead car battery closed loop he has the machine connected to the battery along with 2 power inverters which he uses to run some power tools. minimal power from the battery runs the machine which feeds power back to the battery to power the inverters really cool and expensive but definetly worth $14,000 to run your house!!

    As with all these schemes, it's just a money making scam - but if you want to throw money away, feel free to 'invest' with him :D

    Here's an excerpt from of all places overunity.com about the Magnacoaster on Dragons Den.

    I wouldn't lose a dime if I was going to buy one of these units I would go to pick it up and I would want to see it work using my own dead battery and inverters. i would also want it set up outside where there could be no hidden power source. If it worked i'd hook it up to a grid-tie converter and sell as much as possible back to the electric company. I get very skeptable when someone asks for payment via western union, because most scams use western union. I figured if it's good enough to get to Dragon's Den is might be the real deal.

    Read the overunity thread on the Magnacoster. And PS you'll never get to see one working...

    It's a scam, it cannot and does not work, in the con business you would be referred to as a "dupe"

    "Dead" battery is a loose term. The Eveready battery engineering manuals give curves on alkaline batteries. Comparing the loaded voltage against those curves on "dead" batteries out of several devices I've checked, they still have more than half of the watt-seconds of energy left in them that they started out with. In the YouTube video he doesn't even say "dead", he says "run down". Doesn't surprise me that a run-down car battery can still power a drill. Also, notice that he is another fat, stupid, self-important crank. All these things indicate that it would be a mistake to invest the fourteen grand in this.

    yes, i realized that too, by dead battery i meant i good battery that didn't have enough charge to start a car or power a drill using a power inverter, if you watch that video where he uses a dead battery you will notice that the lights on the inverters were on but there wasn't enough juice to run the drill until he started the machine.

    It's smoke and mirrors. Are you really that gullible?

    Hey if you actually buy one I have a bridge for sale.

    You can never convince these guys. It's like trying to argue with a creationist.

    Ever notice how there's no women who ever work on perpetual motion machines? I searched the net one time, and out of a hundred years or so of records on this sad phenomena, I could only find one female perpetual motion tinkerer. It seems like there's some genetic defect that makes people believe in this $hit, and I get the sinking feeling it must be on the Y chromosome.

    Perpetual motion research sadly is a middle aged all male club.

    Great. I'm in my 40's now, hope I don't succumb to...

    Wait! I've got it! All they need to do is put a Mu-metal shield between the magnet and the pyramid crystals! BRB - have some work to do in the basement.

    Oh crap me too, I'm 47 and I think they've tapped my phone line. Fortunately SHADO will protect us from the UFOs.

    Awesome. I loved that show as a kid. Bought the DVD's last year and watched them all again. Ed Bishop always seems like he was really from the future. Pity his acting career died with the show.

    Yea UFO was great, I have all the DVDs for that and Space 1999. I loved Gerry Anderson stuff and still watch it from time to time.
    The Eagle is still one of my favorite SciFi ship designs.

    I had a plastic model of one of those as a kid. It went on some great adventures on alien planets in the living room next to the coffee table. My favorite episode was "Dragon's Domain" with the space-junkyard and the monster. Also loved the one with Balor, forget the title, good philosophical weirdness.

    Those were about the best episodes. Dragons Domain scared the crap out of me as a young teen. Then again I even watched the super crappy Starlost series here in Toronto.

    Never saw that one, but I watched every episode of both incarnations of the super-lame "Starhunter" series. Best thing about it was the theme music.

    I could never get into Starhunter, Michale Pare was such a wooden actor. Same with Andromeda, just not really interesting to me.
    Now I'm eagerly awaiting the conclusion of Battlestar Galactica.
