Re: Cool, but it's stealing

You're welcome, notarboca. I'm quite frankly surprised by the level of comment I've received on this one. You  never know as a writer what is going to provoke a response, and there are opinions and angles to this story that people have posed that I have never thought of. Thanks for reading.

"Stealing" is not the same as harvesting

"Stealing" is not the same as harvesting.  There was no intent of malice here, but rather to indicate a potential mechanism for energy recycling, from whatever source may be available.  There are currently (no pun intended) myriad devices and techniques for "energy scavenging" technology already being used or in development.  Why should this be considered any differently?

Anne, You are absolutely correct i too dont agree with the idea of stealing energy because this is not stealing energy we are just utilizing the wasted or excess energy as we know all these electromegnatic devices continue to emit energy even when not working .Harvesting energy from air is an excellent idea we can use these devices at airports where radar and communication devices  emit energy to harvest and power wireless sensors that could detect nuclear material .

Thank you for your comment, charles000. I, too, thought a lot of the concern about stealing the energy was unwarranted. As you say, many of these devices are just showing the potential for taking advantagae of the energy that's out there and available, so it's not really so different.

Debera, I think I may have missed your comment earlier, as I just replied to another user that I agree with you all who are commenting that this isn't really "stealing." I think it's a creative reuse of what's already out there and I think that this type of technology should be promoted.
