Why don't you just build it Jonathan? I want one. And you better shut your mouth. Corporate fascists will assassinate you. Best way to do it is to make the machine, patent your findings, and spread it all over the world via the internet. Then, even if somehow the patent is bought, it can no way be eliminated.
I've done what experimenting and testing of the idea I can within my shoestring budget; to really test the idea properly, I'd need access to a reasonably well-stocked optics lab containing the type of equipment used to manufacture lenses, as well as thermometers accurate down to the mK range.
One of the reasons I posted the idea here is to have a dated, verifiable record of my theory via Google and other search engines' web caches, and as a means to get it circulating among people who are recognized experts in optics and physics for some meaningful peer review (hopefully sparking some interest within the scientific community, and eventually from corporations capable of building the device). The other is that I figure my odds of "surviving the assassins" are better if I'm widely known to be associated with the project than if I'm one of only a small number of people who know of it. Public figures are harder to dispose of without anyone noticing...
How much would you need to build the machine? If yuor idea is that revolutionary, then I'm sure if it isn't millions, the community would help. I mean this could change everything in all people's lives all over the globe. It would be the energy equivalent of the Emancipation Proclamation. This is no small thing here.
Given access to a decent optics lab, I could conclusively prove or disprove the validity of my theory for less than the cost of a MFDB, perhaps as little as a thousand dollars. The trick is finding someone in charge of such a lab who would be willing to let me use the equipment, or have lab staff conduct experiments to my specifications. If you know of anyone, please feel free to send them the link to the presentation (http://www.visual-vacations.com/physics/
) and/or email me at jonwienke(at)yahoo.com.
If my theory is conclusively validated, devices could probably be manufactured in quantity fairly cheaply, but I don't know enough about what is possible with current manufacturing methods to intelligently estimate how
cheaply. And even if the devices were very expensive at first (say $100/watt of output power), there are plenty of commercial applications for wireless devices where such a price premium would be acceptable: watches, PDAs, MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets, GPS navigation devices, satellite phones, emergency distress beacons, any electronic device operating in remote areas where AC power is not available and battery resupply is inconvenient, etc. And like I asked before, would you pay an extra 25% premium for your next car if you never had to visit a gas station again?
