Engine runs forever!

Check this out. I was given one as a gift and it's pretty cool (pun intended).

You place it over a hot cup of coffee or a cold cup of ice and as long as there is a delta T over T of about 10 degrees (temperature differential) the little engine runs. you can even place it on a stereo or cable box which is 10 degrees hotter than the room temp and it runs.

Kontax Stirling Engines

Sort of gives you thoughts about a larger one?

Too much junk/toys to mention, ever changing due to too getting bored too quickly. I need a 10 step program!
Want to call? I'm in the book. Want to argue....First explain the square root of negative one....lol

Purchased a 2007 Dodge, ThunderRoad Edition, QC, 4x4, 5.7L HEMI on 11/30/07.
Traded in my Travel Trailer for it, so no need for a Diesel.
