    I hope they build a record breaking wind farm to support it.

    Would be nice to see a flops to watt ratio, for sure.

    They are probably going to power it with zero point energy or cold fusion, no need for a wind farm. :D

    The Searl device, from what I saw of his vids, is nothing more than a non-traditional magnet/coil generator/motor.
    It will not be enough to power a 20 petaflop SC. ;)
    Was pretty cool to see magnets rotating on a ring, though not anything like what is postulated by Dr. Harold Puthoff.
