Hoax or not? This little article in CNN Tech (already taken apart by Slashdot note) reports that an Irish inventor has done the impossible and created a machine – the Jasker Power System – which will power devices whilst delivering extra power from its operation.

Quote:

‘In a demonstration for Reuters, a prototype — roughly the size of a dishwasher — was run for around 10 minutes using four 12-volt car batteries as an initial power source.

Emitting a steady motorized hum, the machine powered three 100-watt light bulbs for the duration.

A multimeter reading of the batteries’ voltage before the device started up showed a total of 48.9 volts. When it was switched off, a second reading showed 51.2 volts, indicating that, somehow, they had been reimbursed.”

The /. mob are convinced it’s a hoax. Is it?
