It sounds too good to be true — not to mention the fact that it violates almost every known law of physics.
But British scientists claim they have invented a revolutionary device that seems to 'create' energy from virtually nothing.
The device seems to break the fundamental physical law that energy cannot be created from nothing — but researchers believe it taps into a previously unrecognized source of energy, stored at a sub-atomic level within the hydrogen atoms in water.
If the technology can be developed on a domestic scale, it means consumers will need much less energy for heating and hot water — creating smaller bills and fewer greenhouse gases.
A computer without COBOL and Fortran is like a piece of chocolate cake without ketchup and mustard.
