It can also be used to satisfy the needs every home for electric energy without consuming any from the electric transmission lines, and can supply industrial systems.
His worked managed to make scientists doubt their own knowledge of the electromagnetic nature and ultimately, his finding will dramatically change the economic bases which we’ve always known.
Facing the wrath of the petroleum and power industry holders, who would lose their fortune and influence if his technology was to be used, Gray started his own partnership called EVGray Enterprises, Inc. and proved his work to the public.
He then introduced Richard B. Hackenberger, who used to work for Sony, Sylvania, as well as the U.S. Navy as an electronic engineer. Another member was a former VW mechanic, Fritz Lens. Both of them were almost as excited as him about the new technology.
A reporter from Tattler, who was granted an exclusive demonstration by Gray, was given the privilege to report facts about Gray’s innovative and revolutionary system. Gray and his associates assured their vision of a clean world based on their new technology.
During the interview, Gray stated that he won’t let it his technology be overcome by greed interests. He spent 10 years trying to promote his technology, trying to have the attention of interests but it was the same ignorance everywhere he turned to.
That also included both government and private agencies and enterprises. He was then tuned to international support and eventually found some hope in Japan.
The words were soon spread about the Japanese interest in Gray’s work and strangely, the Americans started gushing to him. Soon, his small facility was overcrowded with visitors from various fields of finance and industries.
Then the deep wallets started to show up, some of them offered him 20 million, $25 shares of some new corporation, that’s half a billion dollars worth. In return, he’d file bankruptcy of EVGray Enterprises, Inc. and lose all his associates, friends and backers.
Although it was a filthy generous offer, he was almost certain that even if he did what he was asked, he won’t get anything of that.
Almost everyone in his corporation was really determined to overcome the “Money” hurdles and make this new technology known worldwide.
In Gray’s demonstration in front of Tattler, he proved that he came up with a new form of powerful, yet cold electric current. He used an ordinary 6-volt car battery, connected to the core of his discovery, a series of capacitor and then connected them to two electric magnets through a switch. All the wiring connection was made using lead wires.
Under normal circumstances, that battery won’t last more than 30 minutes. Add to this, the magnets would be ridiculously hot due to the current serge through them. As Gray activated his circuit, he connected the battery to the capacitor network and the voltage reading was steadily increasing till it reached 3 kilovolts, only then he closed the circuit connecting the magnets, a loud pop was heard while the top magnet was flung a couple of feet up an then caught by Hackenberger and strangely it wasn’t even near hot!
He also noted that this massive power jolt only consumed 1% of the battery’s power while the remaining 99% returned back to battery itself.
He clamed later that they’ve been repeating the same experiment over and over for more than 18 using the same battery used in that demonstration. Such extremely low energy consumption means that this batter would have a very long life of operation.
He attributed this success to the ability of his capacitance network to “Split the positive”.
As he said that, two physicists, who attended this demo, gazed in wonder, trying to understand what he meant. Normally an electric current needs positive and negative charges in order to take place. In Gray’s experiment, he managed to use only positive charges and in a highly efficient way.
It was obvious back then that the current physics textbooks regarding electromagnetic needed to be rewritten. For the past few months, engineers were working on formulating that system, which very hard because it contradicts with almost everything known about electromagnetism back then.
The part of the demonstration that was really unbelievable was the fact that the magnets didn’t heat up, which is one of the major problems in all electric systems. Add to this, the usage of only the positive part of the energy. Gray also said that the full capabilities of this system would astonish everyone.
Adding to the amazement of all those present in the demonstration, he got a 15-amp rated motorbike battery which was hooked to a pair of capacitors which were hooked to an outlet panel.
As soon as the capacitors were charged, he hooked up six individual 15W light bulbs, a portable TV with a power rating of 110 volts, as well as two radios. Amazingly, the bulbs lit brightly, the TV worked perfectly and the radios were intensely high. And yet, that small battery remained almost fully charged, which is, by all means impossible under normal circumstances.
The president of McCulloch Oil Corporation, C.V. Wood Jr. said it was the most astonishing thing he had ever seen in his life, and then he started to doubt that Gray actually used a hidden conventional wall outlet.
To prove that there was no hidden outlets used, Gray actually unplugged a 40W lamp from it’s regular outlet , plugged it to his circuit, then dropped it in a cylinder full of water and soaked his had next to it.
If Gray was using an ordinary electric outlet, he would have been seriously electrocuted and his system would short-circuit or even blow. Shortly, the reporter came and put his water into the cylinder and didn’t feel a thing.
It was clear now that it was a brand new from of generating electricity, and engineers stated that there were no physics laws being violated, and it was just a new discovery put to work.
Edwin V. Gray, born in Washington, surrounded by 13 other children. When he was eleven he got attracted to the new-coming field of electronics when he saw the test of a primitive radar system across the Potomac River. He then learned all about radar systems during his three years service in the US Navy in the Pacific campaign of World War II.
Thanks to his fascination of capacitor and coils, he learned to “Split the positive” back in 1958 and spent the next 12 years trying to find funding for his projects.
Any short description of the technical details of Gray’s innovation would be absurd, but some of the greatest minds of the US were helping Gray to enhance and improve the performance of his technology.
Gray pointed to the submerged light bulb and said it would take millions of dollars to make power plants, transmission lines and electric networks to light this bulb. While, on the other hand, he clamed he could power a whole American house using only a couple of hundred dollars. This would have a great impact on the economy, needless to say, the ecological effects due to the use of such absolutely clean source of electricity.
