Beautiful website for electronics and alternative energy

Take a look at Magnetricity The webmaster -- Rex Hebert -- is not only good at electronics, he has an excellent sense of design.

His website is one of the few that I like which violate the "no music" and "no animation" for the opening screen. Both are short, lush and fit the concept of the site.

Check out his Photoshop skills on these colorized photographs of Nikola Tesla and his laboratories. (Scroll down past the quotes although the quotes are very much worth reading as well...)

Nikola Tesla invented a few things that you may use from time to time.

  • His system of multiple-phase 60 Hertz power distribution is used in the USA. Other nations use it too but some use 50 Hz instead of 60. It's what come out of the wall outlets and runs everything.
  • The AC Motor? Tesla.
  • He invented Radio. Marconi? Challenged Tesla's patent but the US Supreme Court upheld Tesla's prior. (The fact that Tesla had demonstrated a remote controlled model submarine which started, stopped, turned right and left and dove -- all under radio control several years before Marconi ever sent his trans-Atlantic "S" helped establish the claim.)
  • Fluorescent Lights? Tesla.
  • Radio Astronomy? Tesla.
  • X Rays? Tesla.

The list goes on and on. My only gripe with this site is that Rex is also interested in "zero point" energy and generators that yield more out then put in. He has done some gorgeous work in designing and machining this unit but there are some simple laboratory mistakes that can trick people into thinking that more energy is coming out of a system then is actually there.

I don't see any hard data in his NeoGen page -- it will be interesting to check in from time to time to see what is developing.
