LaserSaber is one of the coolest garage inventors on the Web. He has experimented with homemade supercapacitors in place of his car battery, built a self-contained solar generator with its own supercapacitor instead of a battery bank, and even flew to work propelled by a supercapacitor among other amazing tinkering. Oh, and all of his projects are open source with material lists and instructions (See Here).
In the video below, he connects his supercapacitor to a homemade transformer to boost the battery output by over five times.
Imagine charging the supercapacitor with something like a WiFi harvester seen here. It could be a closed loop system that powers your home. The future looks bright for energy because of open-source inventors like this. Who said we couldn’t innovate our way out of an energy crisis?
