I have recently seen several you-tube videos showing easy to create apparatus capable of producing useable amounts of free hydrogen that is instantly used to run a small portable "gas" generator. One actually shows a complete construction sequence on how to build a hydrogen separator from common everyday materials (with the exception of a powdered chemical needed to be added to the hydrolysis chamber). Another shows how to make a simple hydrolysis container from a sock, some steel wool and a pop bottle. Are we being scammed? It seems that if extracting hydrogen from water is that easy we are missing out on the answer to our fuel problems. Any other thoughts out there?

Yep. Very much all a scam.

Beware the beautiful false allure of the never ending trail of Perpetual Motion machines...


Note that energy is required to be input to be able to split hydrogen from water... And you ain't going to get all of that energy back further down the line of the Perpetual Machine mechanism...

Keep searchin'!
