Hi Michael, Everyone,

Good work with your science fair project, I am just curious about something.
First, do you think it would be possible to connect a small LED across the
output of the receiver to show that the energy from a TC can have a somewhat
practical use? (even though it's not entirely too efficient to power a tiny
LED with a couple hundred watts, even if it is from a distance :-)) Did you
measure the current output as well? I am not even sure if it would work, but
if there is sufficient current at 0.5 meters, the 1.4 V should be able to
illuminate the LED, if it has a small enough voltage requirement. I just
think it would be kinda cool...
Just a thought...
