The Motionless electromagnetic generator
) is a proposed device which claims over-unity
operation, which would violate the first law of thermodynamics
. Allegedly, the device can eventually sustain its operation in addition to powering a load without application of external electrical power, by extraction of vacuum energy
from the immediate environment. The was issued to inventors Thomas E. Bearden, Stephen L. Patrick, James C. Hayes, James L. Kenny, and Kenneth D. Moore in 2002.
The MEG has never been independently verified and there is no known working prototype. Skeptics point out that the device strongly resembles a standard transformer, with the exception of a permanent magnet
and two actuator coils being included in the design. They also strongly criticize Bearden's methods and concepts in general.
History and controversy
In 2001, Bearden predicted that the first commercial products based on the MEG would be "rolling off the production lines in about one year",Tom Bearden, "
