Random smattering of pictures compiled from the web, and chopped out of documentaries. places such as SVPVRIL run by Dale Pond, Dale Pond+related documentaries, and websites feature heavily. all copyright belongs to all the people who made the photos. this is just for my own purposes so i understand what he used the compressed air tanks for (im guessing for creating the waterhammer effect. come on, he had them for a reason, not because he was a fraud, but because he USED them). John Ernst Worrell Keely invented, reportedly, an induction resonance motion motor. He is supposedly to have used etheric 'technology'. In 1872, Keely announced that he discovered a
principle for power production based on the vibrations of tuning forks. Scientists investigated his machine which appeared to run on water, though Keely endeavored to avoid this. Shortly after 1872, venture capitalists accused Keely of fraud (they lost nearly five million dollars). Keely's machine, it was discovered after his death, was based on hidden air pressure tubes. wikipedia: He often used musical instruments to activate his machines, a "vibratory engine" connected to "liberator" made of brass wires, tubes and tuning forks. he kept changing the terminology he used, to "vibratory-generator" to a "hydro-pneumatic-pulsating-vacu-engine" to "quadruple negative harmonics". For the 27 years Keely was running his company, he faced legal problems, accusations of fraud and even occasional claim of sorcery and involvement of occultism. In 1890 Keely pronounced that he was on the verge of a breakthrough. The "liberator" would disintegrate air and release an etheric force that could convert one quart (1 L) of water to enough power to "send a train of cars from Philadelphia to San Francisco". After Keely's death, journalists and engineers went to his laboratory to investigate his machines; Keely's supporters had already appropriated most of them, though they failed to make them work. Engineer Alexander Scott and Clarence Moore, son of Clara BloomfieldMoore, examined the building. Inside the walls they found mechanical belts linked to a silent water motor two floors below the laboratory. In the basement there was a three-ton sphere of compressed air that ran the machines through hidden air pressure tubes. "Unfortunately the history books took the Scientific American debunking as fact and John Keely has been portrayed historically as a fraud and a conman, those who have any inkling of physics who have studied what remains of his work, know these reports to be mostly erroneous." -Jerry Decker, KeelyNet.com John Worrell Keely built an amazing engine that ran on a charge of water that it never consumed. It could rip steel cables apart, bend iron bars, and fire bullets through foot-thick planks. Renting a suite in the Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York, Keely attracted scores of hungry investors, who equated his genius with that of Carnegie, Bell, and Edison. Soon he had formed the Keely Motor Company, capitalized at $1 million. His showmanship became ever more polished. He talked of "vibratory energy," "etheric vapor," or the "interatomic ether" as he demonstrated a cannon that would propel a ball 500 yd. at a muzzle velocity of 500 ft. per second. He built a laboratory in Philadelphia where he continued to refine his engine to where it could turn at 800 revolutions per minute and produce 40 hp on less than a thimbleful of water, and keep doing it for 15 days with the same water. He even made promises that he could run a 30-car railroad from Philadelphia to New York at 60 mph on a quart of water and send a steamship roaring across the Atlantic to Liverpool on less than a pint. But the Keely Motor Company never built a single machine for commercial distribution, nor did it generate a nickel of profit. When Keely died in 1898, a pair of University of Pennsylvania professors, an editor of The Scientific American, and a well-known electrical engineer tore up the floorboards of his workshop to find a fraudulently concealed 3-ton tank of compressed air connected by a series of brass tubes to Keely's "magic" machine. One of the great perpetual motion frauds was John Worrel Keely who claimed to invent a generator that turned tap water into high pressure etheric vapour when vibratory energy was applied. The Keely Motor Company raised $5 million from spurious inventions based on a hydro-pneumatic-pulsating-vacu-engine, sympathetic equilibrium, etheric disintegration and even quadrupole negative harmonics. Even when Keely was dropped by his eponymous company he found a rich widow to support him. On his death in 1898 his house in Philadelphia was searched to reveal a labyrinth of pipes that conducted compressed air to
power his perpetual motion machines. The New York Journal ran a banner headline in January 1899: Keely the Monumental Fraud of the Century. pictures chopped out of "clash of the geniuses" documentary. if you have the dvd, please capture the photos in high quality!!

The secret of Keely's house in Philadelphia. After Keely's death, the house was stripped and found to conceal the wherewithal of trickery and deception on a massive scale. When T.B. Kinralde had completed his inspection of the Keely motor he stated> "The new force he introduced is mere bush. I have accomplished everything that we ever saw him do, and it is extraordinarily simple. I have a magnet concealed in the wall, as he did. Then i get hydraulic pressure and compressed air from hidden sources. One of the most unique pieces of mechanism I found... was a spring, to wind which it was necessary to use a key as big as a crowbar. With the proper winding this spring will run for three or four days and produces enormous energy. This can be wound and started running before the entrance of visitors. With the aid of these four unseen and powerful agents, Keely duped us.'
