A couple of weeks ago Sneak talked about the potential for harvesting wasted energy - using piezoelectric crystals to recoup the energy expended when pounding fists in frustration at shoddy software, for example. This clearly set reader Jonathan McColl thinking... “Dr Wilhelm Reich in the 1930s proposed harvesting 'orgone' energy released during orgasms. I notice that Googling for 'orgone energy' hauls up lots of articles on this jolly interesting subject including the sale of orgone-accumulator blankets. I'm not sure whether to wire up people in series or parallel, but finding out sounds more interesting than studying windmills.”
