Last August Freddy Wells rocked the free energy world with his claim to have run a pickup truck on nothing but water. He has joined with Square1 Energy to refine the technology an prepare it for the market. They recently held a conference call to probe the level of interest in an introductory, experimenter's product.
LEXINGTON, KY, USA - On February 4, Future Energy Concepts, Inc. and Square1 Energy held a Skype conference call to get some feedback from potential manufacturers and distributors in the hydroxy community about the level of interest that might be out there for an on-board water fuel generator based on Frederick (Freddy) Well's "Hydrogen Hog", version 6.
Last August, Freddy from Prescott, Arizona, USA rocked the community with a video showing him allegedly driving a Dodge pickup truck on nothing but hydroxy gas generated from water onboard by the Hydrogen Hog, version 6, which Freddy said he would open source. That unit had a critical malfunction the day prior to a big demonstration. We launched the open source platform for him, registering the domain name FreddysCell.com, but had difficulty getting clear plans, inasmuch as Freddy is very right-brained, inventing on the fly, so it proved nearly impossible to pin him down on one complete design, though we finally published something on November 30, which has not yet resulted in a replication of his claimed effect yet.
Also in November, once Freddy had built a modified version of the cell (version 7), he traveled to Kentucky to get some assistance from the team at Square1 Energy, which specializes in optimizing hydroxy units. He's been there ever since, and plans to remain there at least until the technology is being manufactured and sold in the marketplace.
Apparently version 7 is too large and expensive, so the team has honed in on version 6 and is now far enough along to begin exploring what kind of interest there will be in this product. The version 6 they are working on introducing is a variation of the open source version, and includes proprietary improvements that will not be open sourced.
In order to prevent too much disruption and raising the ire of the powers that be, who serve as pimps for the oil-addicted society, they do not plan to introduce a unit at first that will enable a vehicle to run on water alone. Instead, they will advertise a modest fuel efficiency improvement, such as 30%, with a 'wink, wink' among those in the know that the improvement is likely to be much greater than that.
They said the unit will be around 6 inches in diameter and 16 inches long. Also, it will be modular, so that increased production requirements can be met by ganging multiple units together – up to 12 per controller.
There is an entire industry that uses hydroxy gas to improve fuel efficiency – "fuel augmentation". Running a vehicle completely on hydroxy gas could be considered an extreme version of that effect.
At the approximate $3500 price point they are pondering, the improvement will need to be much greater than 30% to justify the expense in installing the technology.
Also, their first target customers will not be the lay public, but will be more of the researcher, hobbyists, or experimenter types, inasmuch as this is essentially a beta-testing phase. The problem is that those types are typically on a shoestring budget. Though they would love to get one of these units, most of them will not be able to fork out around $3.5k, even though it also includes the Square1 controller, which Square1 launched into the marketplace this month, selling for between $600 and $7000, depending on which of the seven products are chosen, from the BaSIC to the Advanced Lab Kit.
Square1 is also contemplating selling plans for this Hydrogen Hog version 6. The plans would include all information needed to build the parts, assemble them, and condition the cells. I'm not sure how this e-book approach would work, with them wanting to keep their improvements proprietary. Maybe they plan to file international patents and/or copyright on the material by the time they release the plans. Their controller unit is patent pending.
They say they "want to encourage innovation in the broader community." The controller they sell is for the purpose of hydroxy researchers to be able to characterize and improve the performance of their unique systems, facilitating the emergence of quality products in the marketplace, in which Square1 is also a player, including soon with this new Hydrogen Hog product and plans.
