5 inventions that have been commercially suppressed

Various inventions, alternative fuels and energy that has been suppressed

5 inventions that have never seen commercial production.

Free energy

 

Tesla's free energy

Nikola Tesla was a genius. His imagination gave rise to many inventions that we use today, including alternating current. He had other ideas and dreams, like free energy for all. In 1899, Tesla figured a way to harness energy without the need of fossil-fuel-burning power plants. Tesla discovered that energy could be harnessed by using ionization in the upper atmosphere to produce electrical vibrations. Tesla's vision was to produce free energy, without power plants and power lines, for all to use. When J.P Morgan, who was funding Tesla's research, found out of Tesla's intention for free energy, pulled the plug and chased away potential investors so that Tesla's dream would never see the light of day. Why would J.P Morgan be interested in giving away free energy, when they could charge the public for every watt?

 

Water-Powered vehicles

Wouldn't it be amazing not to pay the high petrol prices, and instead have your car run on water? It sounds ridiculous, but water-powered vehicles do exist. The most famous being Stan Meyer's dune buggy, which achieved 100 miles per gallon. Unfortunately Stan curiously suffered a cerebral aneurysm after dinner at a restaurant on 21 March 1998. Insiders and conspiracy theorist suggest that it was to suppress his water fuel cell invention.

When our cars run on gasoline, it is actually running on hydrogen. Meyer used electrolysis to separate the hydrogen from the water and used it to power his buggy. The National Bureau of standards figures show, that when water is used, the energy release is roughly two and a half times more powerful than gasoline.

 

Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

 

TENS

This is a device that was created to alleviate pain impulses in the body, without the use of any drug. In 1974 Johnson and Johnson bought out StimTech, which was one of the first companies to sell the TENS device. Johnson and Johnson apparently began to cut funding to the TENS division, causing it to go under. StimTech sued, claiming that Johnson and Johnson purposefully stifled the project to further sales for Tylenol, their flagship drug. Johnson and Johnson stated that the TENS device did not perform as well as was claimed and was not profitable, yet the founders of StimTech were awarded $170 million, although the ruling was appealed and overturned on the basis of a technicality. The court's finding that Johnson and Johnson purposely suppressed the TENS unit was never overturned.

 

Overunity Generator

An overunity generator is a generator that produces more energy than it takes to run. There are many arguments both for and against, but it would seem that working prototypes are yet to make commercial production due to various corporate and government forces working against the technology. Quite recently the Lutec 1000, an “electricity amplifier” has made steady progress toward a commercial version. It has acquired patents in U.S, China and India, as well as nearly 60 other countries, after steering clear of public spotlight for six years.

 

Hemp Bio-fuel

 

Hemp

Hemp is largely mistaken for marijuana, and although from the same family, they are not the same. Both have incredible uses. Unfortunately government forces prevent hemp from becoming the leader in extracting ethanol, instead opting for corn which is environmentally damaging, even though hemp requires less chemicals, less water and less processing to the same job as corn.

So, what are the other energy sources and techniques the corporations and government prefer to these alternatives? Read one of my other articles about fracking, and find out the illogical mentality of the corporations.

Wow--I think this is not only a good article--but a vital article. Every school kid ought to read this...every thinking adult--every person who worries about oil or power--I remind you the light bulb was invented to last for around 75 years and could if they want to make them to last that long. I could carry on but instead I'll just say 10 stars for this one and keep up the good, daring work.

Thank you Marlando, your words are kind :) There are actually plenty more inventions and concepts that have never seen it to the commercial market. How different our world would be!
