Have the crop artists suggested to us a better way to transmit wireless electricity over large distances? Their method seems plausible: let’s build a model and find out!
Several technological crop pictures appeared during of the summer of 2018, one of which was found near Sokolovskaya, Russia on June 19 (see Kuban 2018 ). It suggested an improved scheme for wireless energy transfer (see Kuban articlesl ). The upper part of this crop picture resembled Nicola Tesla’s original demonstration of a device to send wireless electrical power, patented in 1898:
Tesla used two separate “pancake coils”, linked by a conductive tube of charged plasma gas. Today we know that single “pancake coils” are excellent devices to transmit wireless electricity over short distances (see www.youtube.com or www.youtube.com). We also know that oscillating or resonant circuits will be required to transmit electrical power wirelessly over long distances (see www.youtube.com). The crop artists seem to be suggesting that we should use two “pancake coils”, which have been linked together as a single resonant circuit, to transmit electricity over a greater distance without wires:
Their suggestion seems eminently plausible. Should we build a model and find out? How much was wi-fi technology worth? What would long-distance, tuneable, wireless-energy technology be worth?
