RUNNING ON WATER
Update on Freddy: prototype 7, lab tour, forum
The open source project to replicate Future Energy Concepts water fuel cell technology is getting under way. A forum has been launched, a project domain name has been registered, and more photos and videos posted. Freddy shows a glimpse of his machine shop.

Quite a bit has been happening with Frederick (Freddy) W. Wells' water fuel cell
open source project, which we at PES Network are helping to coordinate.
Our PESWiki feature page for this technology, which you can get to through the
shortcut url: http://www.FreddysCell.com
will serve as the project home page, with sub-pages built as needed. Since
the cite is wiki, you can log in and help keep those pages up to date and
Several people are working closely with Freddy, of Future Energy Concepts, Inc.,
to replicate the effect, as part of the process of documenting how he
accomplished allegedly running a Dodge 2004 pickup truck on hydroxy gas along,
electrolyzing water on board, sufficient to power the vehicle.
He wasn't setting out to actually be able to power the vehicle under load.
He was just hoping to get it to idle.
As mentioned in a previous story,
prototype 6, which was the one powering that set-up, has been disassembled, due
to damage incurred.
Now Freddy is working on prototype 7, which he hopes will be far more
robust. At $8,000 for components, he may be overdoing it, but he wants to
be sure that his unit will hold up, given all the scrutiny that this technology
is coming under. Both he and his associate, David Seiglar, have liquidated
some assets in order to come up with the funding needed to press forward in this
project. I personally think that this speaks volumes about their integrity
This time, rather than apply the cell to run a truck, Freddy plans to run a 36
kW generator that usually runs on propane. He hopes to have it ready to go
within a couple of weeks. It will be housed "in a beautiful Ό-inch acrylic vessel, impervious
to heat and pressure," said Freddy in his update video 1 below. The new
cell is probably going to be called a "cascade cell", using a cascade
wave effect. He said it is a combination between a Meyers
cell and a Joe
Freddy has confirmed that he is dedicated to open sourcing the core concept so
that this technology can go out into the world quickly, and benefit from many
sharp minds and skilled people tackling the myriad of issues associated with the
technology. One of the things that open source projects are great for is
finding cheaper/easier ways to do things, as well as finding local materials
sources around the world. Another key issue will be how to get vehicles to
run on the HHO fuel. That is not simple matter, which a lot of people
involved in hydroxy research have been working on, with varying levels of
We've commenced a Yahoo!Groups discussion list is for those who wish to be part of this open source project to replicate, characterize, optimize, and improve
Freddy's water fuel cell technology. This is an open forum viewable by the public. Usual rules of decorum apply. Violators will be put on moderated status or blocked from posting. There will be little tolerance for unproductive skeptical or critical comments. Please keep it professional and scientific.
Even though the project is going to be open sourced, doesn't mean that
everything will be given away for free with no revenue source. There will
be well formatted plans made available for download for a fee, kits will arise,
which will help bring in revenue, and finished products will likewise provide a
revenue source. If you are involved in commercializing this technology in
any way, we ask that you coordinate with us to see that Freddy gets a piece of
the action -- e.g. at least a 5% royalty on all devices.
Freddy appreciates the "prayers" that people have been putting up for
him. He's is not feeling well today, having another ulcer. In his
first update video below, he said that he came close to death with his illness.
He has plenty going on. In addition to this water fuel cell project, which
is kind of a hobby on the side, he runs a sporting good store business.
And he told me he has 2 horses, 58 chickens, 18 dogs, 2 hybrid wolves, a milk
cow, 2 goats, 2 acres of crop, and a cockatiel. And he's looking at other
renewable energy technologies that he might help out with. Meanwhile, he's getting tons of emails, phone calls inquiring about his water
fuel cell technology.
Hopefully some of the people that are coming along to help will reduce his load
so he can focus on what he does best.
Adam W., who also lives in Prescott, has agreed to serve as a project
coordinator. His first task will be to replicate the technology
himself. He was hoping to meet with Freddy today to get some parts and
instruction, but apparently Freddy wasn't feel up to it.
James Sharp is going to be helping with Freddy's website, and he's going to help
coordinate the open source project. He travels regularly between
California and Prescott, AZ; which spurred him to get into HHO technology a
couple of years ago, by which he was able to improve his mileage.
Professionally, he has experience in corporate communications, especially in
making presentations, including 3-D animations and other multimedia.
Freddy is also grateful to have the assistance of Square1, which we featured in
last week. They have donated laboratory space, instrumentation,
and a special controller being fine-tuned for this application.
"Hopefully working together we'll have something that works
Freddy seems undeterred from some underhanded things that have been going on,
including possible poisoning being behind his illness, having been shot at once
in the last two weeks, and a bullet having pierced the propane tank at his house
(which gratefully was empty). The ATF audit of his shop ended well, thanks
to his good documentation.

The stainless steel tubes have to be firmly anchored, to facilitate the
crucial resonant vibrations.
Here are a few photos Freddy sent me on Aug. 30. The time stamp on the
photos was June 30. You can click on the photo to download a much higher

real estate he's looking to to build an off-grid, "earth ship",
powered by solar/wind energy farm.)
