In that link the reporter said they got to see inside the reactor but they did not show a video of that, and which one they opened. If they opened up the one from the demo they did not have video.
They also did not have to use aluminum foil to cover it, they could have made it totally out of glass so everything would have been visible. If it didn't produce quite as much heat, no big deal. It would show there was not a car battery or something inside producing the energy.
I would have to see them put one together from scratch, watch the entire assembly process and then see it start producing energy and not for just 3 hours at the claimed 5 kw output, that is only about 15 kwhr at best and that can be faked.
If I saw them assemble it and saw there was no energy source from current technology and THEN produced power not for 3 hours but for 60 hours or so, that would be about 300 Kwhr, an entirely different situation than one running for a couple or three hours, 300 Kwhr from a box the size of a toaster-oven like they showed would be impossible for any normal source. I would also have to rule out induction heaters under the table.
The energy could be transmitted from as much as 6 feet away and you would not feel it. There is technology like that readily available. I would like to see them put it together and me supply the table and let it run for a few days, that would satisfy me.
