The concept of the electric car has been around for a very long time, and as with any other world revolutionizing technology, it’s taken a while to actually bring them out and have them on the market. It would be great to just throw out all of the red tape that delays the process, but our world doesn’t work that way, in fact, it’s quite the opposite and in an industry dominated by oil, it’s hard to make your presence felt.
Giant corporations have monopolies on technologies like this, and they themselves are going to want to control the clean energy market, just as they have been with regards to oil. Clean energy technology has huge implications, not just from an environmental standpoint, but a geopolitical one as well. Perhaps that’s why it’s taken so long for many of them to see the light of day, and many of them never do. It’s great to see companies like Tesla out there, but by now, it should be illegal for any manufacturer to make a car that runs on oil rather than electricity or some other form of green technology.
Take for example, the “Invention Secrecy Act,” it was written up in 1951. Under this act, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders. These orders can restrict their publication if government agencies believe that their disclosure would be harmful to national security.(source)(source)
Could this be the reason why so many revolutionary inventions never saw the light of day?
As reported by the Federation of American Scientists, there were over 5000 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2014, which marked the highest number of secrecy orders in effect since 1994. Steven Aftergood from the Federation of American Scientists reports:
“The 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies in “excess of 70-80%.” (source)
Pretty crazy, but definitely gives you something to think critically about, which is what we’re all about here at Collective Evolution and why I put the information above in this article, but let’s get to it.
We are pleased to report a new development from Sangulani Chikumbutso, who has now become the first Zimbabwean to design and make an electric powered vehicle and a hybrid helicopter, among other gadgets through his company, SAITH Technologies.
What’s so special about this? It’s that he is producing electricity via electromagnetic waves; radio frequencies. As his website explains,
“By revealing undisclosed substance (industry secreted) to radio wavelengths, the Eco-friendly power generator has the capacity to funnel the power generated into function electrical energy. His assertion is always that he has moved past the rules of preservation of energy as generally comprehended as equivalent shift of energy from a single form to a different one proclaiming that this kind of “discovery” displays the application of basic gel battery packs in series of 220 volts generating a greater output in electrical power (500,000 Watts). We aren’t certain how this claim could be allayed, therefore we wish at some discussion board researchers will put the statements to test.”
This may be old news to some, but Collective Evolution recently came across it. A news broadcast from Zimbabwe aired the story, one of Africa’s news leaders SABC Digital News.
Absolutely ZERO Publicity/What’s Happening Now
You would think that an electric car that does not require a charge, and can basically run indefinitely (as long as the parts stay intact) would be huge news. But, it’s not, and it seems such technologies never are.
