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:


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?

Yes, simply rectify it and drive the motor direct.  -Greg
