In addition to the crazy and as-yet futile attempts to win the powerball with a one-line system, I also enjoy trying to split water into hydrogen and oxygen for eventual use as fuel. Sure electrolysis has been around since Faraday (1800's) but it's just not efficient...
I play around with off-the-wall theories that combine the resonance work of my favorite inventor (Nikola Tesla) with elements of molecular string theory in an effort to find and exploit the resonant frequecy of the O-H covalent bond in a water molecule so that water may be split with much less initial energy than brute force electrolysis requires.
So far I have about 3 years of research into just forming the hypothesis, now it's time to build test sets and try to find that elusive frequency and the rig that will make it viable. But I must learn how to program my microcontroller in 'C', already proving to be a challenge! WHY must everything interesting have such a huge learning curve? Maybe I'm just stupid. BUT like the lottery quest, apparently noone has done that either.
I just may have better luck at winning the powerball :-(
But it looks at least possible on paper.
If I ever win, I'm buying my own LAB.
