Small Ocean Wave Generator Makes Power

I thought it interesting to see this working. He hooks up a sander and youcan see it start and stop as the waves make it work.
in the video he says something like $65 worth of parts.

Re: small ocean wave generator makes power

Here is an interesting company trying to make a go of a similar device:

OPT | Ocean Power Technologies

Last I looked they were burning through cash losing more money than their revenues. Still interesting though, and the way alternative energy will eventually succeed is through private enterprise proving it in the marketplace.
