all of these generators still require the use of battery packs for 'storage'

i don't think we need new generators, although, smaller units with higher output and no moving parts are nice to have, what we need are new storage devices...

I just generated some wind that for a time was stored energy, then moving parts took over.

Which is actually the primary content in his channel using his conductive ink. Leaps and bounds have been made in this regard.

it's not you my friend, but i've grown up with phrases exactly like this one:
Leaps and bounds have been made in this regard.
and here I stand today, no ray gun, no free electricity, no free water, no regular round trips to the moon, our personal vehicles still move about on some of the most toxic things on the planet, Tires, etc......

no bro, these people lie just to get us to believe them...there's nothing in the near future, nothing even remotely scalable to replace the basic battery and if there was, it would end up being priced right along with what a Ah costs if it were to come from a generation facility...

This industry, the electrical industry, the battery industry, et al...they know their prices and we won't get anything until the prices all come up to the level it costs to make any of this 'new stuff', which isn't scalable, or practical...etc...and there goes anything 'cheap' which is what we were told through the 50's and 60's as 'they' scaled up our nationwide electrical system..."it'll be the best thing, you're paying now for cheaper electricity in the future"

sorry, it's all been a pack of lies, and i'm sorry to say, it still is...

You forgot the most important one of all.

No jet packs either. F'ers! I want my f'ing already! Lol

Au contre, mon ami


Just because we are poor bums that can't afford one doesn't mean that red bull doesn't have a dozen

or mean that I am not inanely jealous of red bull.

Flywheels for energy storage.
220px-G2_front2.jpg

This was a design funded by NASA's Glenn Research Center and intended for component testing in a laboratory environment. It used a carbon fiber rim with a titanium hub designed to spin at 60,000 rpm, mounted on magnetic bearings. Weight was limited to 250 pounds. Storage was 525 W-hr (1.89 MJ) and could be charged or discharged at 1 kW. The working model shown in the photograph at the top of the page ran at 41,000 rpm on September 2, 2004.

Would run a laptop for about 100 hours, then.
