Harvesting Power from a Glass Sphere

by Lillian Too

In December 2013, German architect André Broessel, of Rawlemon released a video on the Internet explaining how his newly-conceived glass sphere could well revolutionize solar power on Earth; in so doing, he might very well be describing how we can all have easy-access, affordable, renewable energy. He has already transformed his ideas into the real thing. This inventor has built this prototype and he has worked out how to harvest the solar energy captured (and maybe even stored) by this glass sphere shown here. Already, he claims he knows how to harvest the energies created by the sphere to power mobile phones and other digital products currently using electrical energy and battery power.

Here, the glass sphere is a spherical sun-tracking solar energy generating globe. Basically, it is a giant glass marble mounted on a robotic steel frame. It is very similar to the crystal globes I have been advising people to place in the center of their living rooms and inside their homes to generate excellent feng shui harmony, except mine are feng shui glass and crystal spheres that have been infused with mantra power. The glass sphere here uses solar power absorbed from the sun and it can concentrate both sunlight and moonlight up to 10,000 times. This makes its solar harvesting capabilities 35 percent more efficient than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs that are currently in use. Let me repeat that. This is 35% more efficient than current solar panels and is able to operate on cloudy days. It concentrates light by 10,000 times. André Broessel was a finalist in the World Technology Network Award 2013 with the globe’s design. Later, he produced this latest version, called Betaray, which can concentrate even diffuse light into energy, such as that from a cloudy day.

I have always loved the magic that is captured inside glass or crystal spheres. I know how powerful glass spheres are in transforming the sun’s rays into open fire. Just use a magnifying glass to demonstrate this to yourself. This is why I never place my crystal globes outside in the sun… but placed inside, it is still extremely powerful in absorbing the power of the sun’s rays, except in a far more gentle fashion. Nevertheless, enough to fill the home with the beautiful rejuvenating energy of the sun!

Every room in my home including my bedroom is positively energized with large crystal globes. Not just one. Usually I have several such globes and in varying sizes, although in my living room, they are at least 6 to 8 inches in diameter. Thus do the rooms of my home stay fresh with constantly rejuvenated energy. Anyone can do the same and with Andre Broessel’s breakthrough creation of the solar-absorbing glass sphere, we may soon have no more need for fossil fuels; definitely big step forward!
