Hi All,Made a short video of the new 'Tesla Roadster,' a small vehicle powered completely by ambient fields as per Tesla's original patent.This one includes a bunch of improvements over the first one. Lower rolling resistance, better drive ratio, and better tuning and coupling for the onboard Tesla coil. All of the small improvements had a much bigger impact than expected:https://youtu.be/NfKOD0XqR14 There's some wireless history at the beginning, test starts at 2:22.
Pretty cool. I'm assuming you limit the power to the "transmitter" to keep breakouts from happening (although there was at least one).
What's the "receiving tesla coil" like? I assume it's tuned to the same frequency, but how do you get DC power - rectify the LV winding output?
