I must say how highly disappointed I was after purchasing and viewing the so-called plans and blueprints for the Willis Generator today. I based my decision completely on the endorsements I found online; as an engineer and the fact that many declared that they had built it themselves, based upon the plans from the willis generator website.
I am experimenting with alternative methods of producing power for many years so far. I am an electrical specialist engineer (30+ years); My dad worked for Motorola and Zenith and was a Professor of Electronics at the Denver University for 27 years… so i grew up eating transistors…
To my disappointment – the website is one of those pervasive teaser-ad sites which tries to keep you from exiting and the document which I bought – is a hodge-podge of various old CAD drawings or worse; with nearly useless captions; no consolidated parts list; no true electrical schematic; no recommended part numbers from notable suppliers; and whomever wrote the text should have their high school diploma revoked for lack of grammar and spelling. It is a canard.
A thermoelectric generator uses the concept of difference in temperature between two materials to create electricity. So could this technology be adapted to make a thermoelectric generator at home? As a matter of fact one can quite easily, though the efficiency of such a generator is no going to be terribly high, it certainly can be put to practical use – Here is where you can buy small scale Thermoelectric Generator.
Moreover improvement in technology has addressed this problem to some extent. Peltier units are a thermoelectric material that help transform the difference in temperature into electricity. These are increasingly being used by the automobile industry to recover some of the heat lost by the engine and channel the power to the battery.

According to a fascinating theory of Quantum Physics: Vacuum contains a whole lot of background energy, which has been termed Zero Point Energy. This theory is based on the fact that even at an absolute zero temperature of -273 degrees Celsius, you can notice that elementary particles still display energetic traits.
Scientific advances are beginning to make it possible to tap into this vast resource of free energy.
Among the possible future uses for this uniquely sourced energy hat one hears about is spaceflight and also something called ‘warp drive’ space propulsion systems.
