hmm interesting but wouldnt there be a problem with the energy that it is expelling interfering with other electronical devices like bionic hearts and other artificial organs that are sensitive to electronic interferience?....and what about the cost of the electric bill..if it was on all the time t would run the bill up..and if you could turn it off and off wouldnt that kind of defeat the purpose of having it to provide power?

Wow yall are dumb.
I've built a tesla coil. This is a rip off from Nikola Tesla. They`re presenting it as new tecnology when it`s been around over 100 years.

a few things to address-
1) the frequency of the radiated energy will not allow you to be `electrocuted` in the classical sense. However, while most of the power should travel around your body (look up the `skin effect`) nasy RF burns are still possible.

For an "in home" application, this is really not nessicary. Tesla tried to implement a system to provide power across the atlantic, the Wardenclyffe tower was supposedly a giant tesla coil, but there was evidince that tesla was aiming at something much bigger.

And before anyone harps on about cancer and ionizing radiation and cancer they really ought to do their homework. Electrons can ionize atoms as well as light can.

If this has the kind of range they're expecting, then the distance between the two sides of a loop in any electrical circuit will be negligible compared to the distance from the transmitting coil. When the feild is applied, currents will be induced in both sides of the loop simultaneously, but acting in opposing directions within the loop and the difference between the two will be negligible. The only way to make this feasible is by either moving the loop extremely close to the transmitter so that the loop size is large compared to the distance between the two, or increasing the loop size to get the same effect. I`m assuming people don`t want 6 feet long mobile phones for example and reducing the range to a usable one defeats the object as if it`s going to be placed a few centimetres away, then a simple contact arrangement as seen in a cordless phone charger housing would be far more efficient. For effective wireless electricity, you should just put a solar cell on your lamp.
