generator called the Wang Shum Ho Electricity Generator. Evidently a proof of concept device was demonstrated to Chinese officials on 15 Jan 2007. Lawrence Tseung, a colleague of the inventor states plans to build four 5kW units. One to be in Beijing, another in Hong Kong, the third one will be set up in the United Nations in New York, and the fourth one will be a roving demonstrator unit. All will be made available to universities for academic validation. Then 200 more will be produced. One each of these will go to every member country of the United Nations as a gift from China. Mass production is to begin in 2008.
Nr Tseung has written that these devices take advantage of electromagnetic wave energy that ssurrounds us all the time. Some call this Zero Point Energy. He states that the world energy crisis is now over.
