TESLA’S ODYSSEY demonstrates and proves or disproves new exotic energy devices that could power our home, automobiles, and the electric grid. It combines the do-it-yourself , practical “does it work?” philosophy of Mythbusters with scientific integrity and out-of-the-box thinking. Follow each episode as we delve into the strange world of eccentric inventors and cutting-edge companies that are challenging the current system that is powering (and polluting) our lives.
Imagine a car that runs on nothing but air or water, an electric car that recharges itself while you drive it. That technology is here today. What if your home allowed you to turn on all of your appliances at once and run them indefinitely free of charge? Sounds impossible? It’s not.
A Green-based smart grid system totally powered by solar, wind, and wave technology has reached the planning stage.
The United States has fallen behind the rest of the developed world in the implementation of new green power. But with this series, we will introduce brave maverick innovators who are putting it all on the line. In addition, Tesla’s Odyssey will entertain and inspire young people to continue learning and perhaps pursue careers in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Each episode will attempt to either prove or disprove a particular emerging technology with fair, unbiased, scientifically-based benchmark tests. Every show will feature two different technologies, interviews with their inventors and independent technical consultants. We will focus mainly on point-of-use energy systems that consumers can install and generate on site as well as radical new advances in conservation and efficiency. They will be put to the test to demonstrate real-world applicability and affordability. Viewers will find out if a particular invention passes the Reality Check Meter, is inconclusive, or fails.
Tesla’s Odyssey rests on the cutting edge of what is scientifically imaginable and possible.Launch website »
