    I wonder how much energy it makes compaired to the ammount put into it. That air compressor isn’t free to run, I’m sure. Not to mention all the tubing that splits to each bottle to deliver the air.

    I like the idea, but in this case I’d be willing to bet that the implimenttion uses more energy that it produces.
