There goes the neighborhood.
Two Brazilian inventors,¬†Nilson Barbosa and Cleriston Leal, claim to have invented a free energy device and are now selling this device to the public. ¬†The device is called the Earth Electron Captor Generator, or “GERADOR CAPTOR DE EL√ČTRONS DA TERRA” in¬†Portuguese.
There is one catch, they are presently only offering the device to people who live in the city of¬†Imperatriz. ¬†However, they are working to license production with several manufacturing firms that will allow for online sales. ¬†Their website says they will update their page with distributor information when it becomes¬†available. ¬†Rumor has it that global distributors will come online in January of 2014.
The device requires a small amount of initial input power to start some kind of sensor rolling, which then produces over-unity power. ¬†The device looks small, which means it could be used for vehicular power, as well as residential power. ¬†They advertise it can be used in either role, as well as an industrial power source. ¬†The site claims the input power needed to run it is around 2% of its output power.
They have several sizes of the generator. ¬†The smallest prototype they built is capable of generating 12.1 kw of power, with a load of 6000 watts, using only 21 watts input energy. ¬†The prototype unit weighs 1.5 kg measuring¬†20x30x15 cm. ¬†The average home needs around 15 kw of power. ¬†
PESN is reporting¬†that one of their people witnessed a firsthand demonstration of the generator and has verified that it performs as claimed.
I have posted some videos of the product below. ¬†One of the comments on one of the video feeds says the system costs 12,000. ¬†I’m not sure if that number is accurate, and if it is accurate, what currency it is denominated in. ¬†If that’s in Reals, that would be around $5,500 US Dollars. ¬†I’ve seen another person saying it was going for 11,000 Reals in a forum thread.
Peswiki posted an article on them¬†here.
NOTE:¬†This company is in a vulnerable stage right now. They are not equipped to handle the barrage of inquiries they have been receiving because of our coverage. (Nov. 12 update:) The company is ready to license the patents.
The local power company confiscated the first two devices they installed in homes for lack of proper UL-equivalent certifications. Sales are suspended until they get expert opinion, which is already being provided.
They’ve asked if I could remove this page, but instead, I’m posting this notice. Give them some breathing room. They are not bi-lingual. For now, they have enough brain-power and input coming from their Brazilian counter-parts.
Back in September, a¬†Brazilian newspaper¬†reported that the two inventors were arrested for supposedly¬†receiving¬†stolen goods. ¬†Apparently they had all of their equipment confiscated during the raid. ¬†As best I can make out, the report says they were found to have two energy meters that belonged to a Brazilian energy cooperative.
The two said they were given the energy meters by an engineer of the cooperative. ¬†Their lawyers said they were going to file a¬†corpus delicti motion, which means they don’t believe any crime has been committed because they were freely given the meters to use, and the engineer who gave them the meters had even published a report on the internet about it. ¬†The two were released on bail. ¬†The rumor mill says “that everything is fine now.”¬†From the Peswiki notice, it appears that they are still in operation.
Here’s a video that apparently shows the device being used to power an industrial facility in Brazil. ¬†This video was published on October 3, 2013, not too long after the device went on sale. ¬†If this is a hoax, it’s a pretty damn elaborate one.
PESN is reporting that one of their people witnessed the Captor in operation first hand, stating that, “Fernando Lins, witnessed the Captor produce 169 kW (797 A at 212 V) while being powered from a 12-V battery through a 2,000-Watt inverter that was providing the Captor with just 1,650 W (7.5 A at 220 V) — a gain of more than a hundred times!”
