Thane Heins is nervous and hopeful. It's Jan. 24, a Thursday afternoon, and in four days the Ottawa-area native will travel to Boston where he'll demonstrate an invention that appears – though he doesn't dare say it – to operate as a perpetual motion machine.

The audience, esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Markus Zahn, could either deflate Heins' heretical claims or add momentum to a 20-year obsession that has broken up his marriage and lost him custody of his two young daughters.

Whoah - this sounds...well... "Too good to be true".

Although you cant deny the observations, the science behind it might be interesting to observe from an outsiders perspective. He wouldnt be the first to stumble on a ground breaking idea.
