Every now and then humanity comes across a genius who’s ideas are so great that, if implemented, may change the world forever. Some of these ideas are suppressed and never see the light of day. But thanks to the internet, this teen’s invention may not only see daylight, it may produce it… for free!
Max Loughan, 13, loves to invent things, in fact, he says he has known his entire short life that his purpose was to change the world with his inventions. And he may just do it.
Inspired by the geniuses Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein, Max has created an electromagnetic harvester out of a coffee can, some wire, two coils, and a spoon! The harvester conducts radio waves, thermal, and static energy, and turns it into electricity. His invention looks somewhat reminiscent of Tesla coil, and operates on some of the same principles described by the electric visionary.

When asked about his motivation, he said: “As cheesy as this sounds, from day one, on this planet that I knew I was put here for a reason,” said Max. “And that reason is to invent, to bring the future.”
The device is rather simple, harvesting electromagnetic energy from the atmosphere, then converting it to direct current which can be used to power electrical devices. What’s even more incredible is that Max built his free energy device out of materials he purchased for less than $15. That’s right, for the price of an average lunch, it appears that anyone can have access to free energy!
Wearing a lab coat while speaking in a televised interview with KTVN Channel 2 in Reno and Tahoe, Nevada, Max explains the free energy device that he made in his parents’ boiler room turned laboratory. Holding one the wires, he says: “This wire takes energy from the air.” And the inside the coffee can, “We turn it from AC to DC.”
In the video below, Max uses current created by the machine to power a strip of LED lights that he had wrapped around his twin brother, astonishing to both his own family and the visiting news crew.
Max’s achievement is impressive, to say the least, and the fact that works of Nikola Tesla are now inspiring the next generation of inventors is quite inspiring. We need to clone this kid!
