Imagine that, Oklahoma! I received an email asking if I had posted erroenous data because of the mention of both Popular Science and Popular Mechanics.
Well, I simply quoted the source (no editing) but I looked on both of these magazines and found no mention of this Baird guy. So told them to contact the source to correct the story unless they can prove he was really written up in these two magazines.
“A local inventor whose creation was recently featured in Popular Science magazine unveiled his latest invention Saturday. Ada area resident Jeff Baird’s newest invention is an engine that uses a technology that really isn’t new at all. “It’s electromagnets,” Baird said. “They’ve been around a long time. It’s probably 60 or 70-year-old technology.” An official open house to display the creation is set in June at Conner State College in Warner but Baird wanted local residents to get a look at it while it was at his company, Plumb New Ideas Ltd. in Allen. “We’ve had a lot of support from folks here in Allen,” Baird said. Many have tried and failed to get these engines to run efficiently and Baird said he has fixed what others couldn’t. “All we’re doing is pulling on the pistons which has been done before, there are several patents out there,” Baird said. “They’ve run into problems with how to fire the magnets and we just got around all those and filed our own patents.” The current prototype can generate enough electricity to power lights, televisions and computers. It is a work in progress and bigger and better engines are on the way, Baird said. “We’re just simply converting very little wattage into a lot of energy,” Baird said. Large batteries fire the magnets and the motor acts as an alternator that keeps the batteries charged continuously. Because it does not use fossil fuels, Baird said it is environmentally friendly. The technology works like windmills except it uses magnets instead of wind. Baird recently made the news when his invention — the PermaFLOW — was featured in the December issue of Popular Mechanics. Baird said he wants kids to see his creations and get excited about inventing things that help people. He said it is all about helping others. He’s helped many people from young inventors to the disabled. “I just want to make things easier for people to live,” he said. / The current prototype can generate enough electricity to power lights, televisions and computers.
