Maxwell Chikumbutso of Saith Technologies is back – Claims generator powers 10 houses at once

[Image Source: Saith Group]

Maxwell Chikumbutso is a more interesting man than most of us. Lets get that out of the way. If at any point I sound envious or jealous, it’s because part of me might wish I was actually him – lol.

Anyway, the serial inventor is back with a bang. Yes serial inventor. For those in the dark – Maxwell claims to have invented a self-powering Generator, the first locally built WiFi Meshing technology, an electric car and a drone.

The stuff he made was so ahead of its time he said he couldn’t patent any of the technology because it defied the laws of physics.

Anyway what’s new?

Well, it’s not exactly a new product but the Microsonic generator that is actually back. Maxwell Chikumbutso recently held an event showcasing the generator and one of the journalists in attendance tweeted this;

The above video doesn’t go into detail regarding how the Greener Power Machine works and the only technical detail we can take away from this is that the Generator runs silently.

From the press event, Maxwell shared one clip on his Facebook page

  1. Title should read “Alleged serial scam artist returns with new claims”

    Why do you keep promting this person? You, TechZim are feeding a fire of ignorance and stupidity that the average educated person in Zimbabwe is unable to differentiate from the truth, and who therefore defaults to adulation, simply because he is a local player. How many investors have lost their money with these dubious claims that you are directly responsible for perpetuating instead of batting such trite away with the derision such obviously impossible claims demand?

    It is simple… No closed system can provide more energy out of it than is put into it. This is basic physics, and until this nut provides incontrovertible evidence that he has by-passed the laws of physics, then do not give this guy a platform to potentially con more Zimbabweans out of their hard-earned income based on false promises.

    Stop being complicit. All it would have taken is the effort to speak with one Zimbabwe University physics lecturer (or student even) to realise just how dumb these claims are. Obviously you’re no expert, no-one expects you to be, but every single one of your posts on this guy have been fawning, sychophantic puff-pieces, lacking any journalistic effort, that have been sure to help dupe the unsuspecting public into believing these crazy claims. It is ridiculous! How on earth does this help Zimbabweans improve their appreciation for STEM subjects?

    Come on TechZim, you’re better than this. For the love of Knowledge, Truth, and Zimbabwe’s future, cease the pathetic journalism and find a bit of integrity!!

    Failing that, I’ve got an amazing bridge you might like to help me sell… 😀

    1. well RF harvesting is a technology that works but at a far smaller scale for poering very small devices
      besides it is specific of area and radiation available so harvesting 50kw is far fetched considering a single basestation will use up to 10 kw and dissipate way less than that and most of the energy is actually used by mobile devices and losses in the air… i personally wouldnt say it doesnt work but i would like to test it myself

  2. A little while ago, I was reflecting (procrastinating) on how these days, a ‘small’ country like Zimbabwe could not only get by but flourish on the back of a handful of great tech patents/ip. If this thing is for real, its on a level that would give us ‘pfutsek’ money on the UN Security Council! Thats something i wouldn’t mind seeing in my lifetime! 🤣😂

  3. Draxenal… You are quite angry man🤣… However look the simple fact is this even science itself is inconclusive on various issues. What makes sense is testing someones claims and by the way Zimboz and or the chinese in particular steal peoples ideas its no wonder the how this thing works is not smething anyone wuld jus want to put out there.

    1. lol @ TheRealist – In a time when we have had pyramid scams rising exponentially, of course I am frustrated when categorically unproven claims are sprinkled on the masses as if they were mana from heaven, and a pancea for a nation’s ills, only for the con-artists to rape our citizens of what little dignity and wealth they have left. Stories like this make us a laughing stock to every scientifically literate person on the planet.

      Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and after 6 years of this particular person and company supplying no evidence to support a claim of ripping apart the universal laws of physics, and no explanation why he claimed a drone and a car bought on Alibaba is his “own invention” how can anyone not be frustrated and angry with the delinquent journalism that surrounds these absurd claims?

      Where are these previous miracle appliances that can make more energy than they consume. Just one of these, after 6 years, should have made this guy richer than Elon Musk, especially with all the backing he has had. Build one factory and make these devices for Africa, he will be a trillionaire in 2 years. No. Instead we have another “invention”, supported by nothing except his charisma.

      This is no different from the n’anga proclaiming that processed diesel can come from a rock, which our scientifically illiterate ministers fawned over and paid tax dollars towards because they believed such bogus claims. We know that our Zimbabwe military spent Zimbabwean tax-payers’ dollars entertaining this fake-science for some small period at least. Are you not angry when your money gets wasted so frivilously?

      1. Have some faith, you are clearly someone that does not understand certain things. Do you know how Coca Cola is made? But because he is Zimbabwean you water it down. Blessed is he who believes without seeing. Stop the pull him down african syndromes. Ask yourself why those people are in the room asking and taking photos and yet the machine is working.
        Remember the patenting associations are paid lots of money to protect certain patens, among those some physics proven concepts.
        Let techzim share his work. After all, time will always reveal if he is conning anyone including you. Relax! Let the guy show his work and let him be vindicated.

        1. Kkkk…..mmm….Science means knowledge,science is not about faith.You dont get to send a man to the moon by faith.Faith is good,but in its appropriate context.Rega ndireve neShona… Kubvuma pfungwa dza baba avo kudzungaira kukuru.We need practically innovative people like Daniel Chingoma.Uyu murume haana chaanoziva.Kuvhengedzera chete nekudzimaidza vanhu vakaputirwa nekupusa.

          1. Saying something is impossible is the same thing as proving a negative. You have no idea what science is, that is why you use it so conclusively and as a religion. Dogmatically and insulting to any new ideas. Coincidentally like every single genius in history was met with “academic ridicule” from people who with their arrogance and ego said it was unscientific simply because THEY were not the “genius” who understood it. You are clueless. I personally know someone who made a gravity based perpetual motion device. Been running his motorcycle for 4+ years. It doesn’t even HAVE a fuel tank. Saying something is impossible ensures everyone who believes that will NEVER attempt to make something “impossible”. When science tried EVERYTHING imaginable in ALL imaginable environments and ALL science is “settled” and ALL scientist have retired, then it can being talking about “impossible” things. Science is not all knowing god. If it could prove impossible things it could PROVE that god does not exist. But if he does not exist, science can NEVER prove that as it has NOTHING to examine and draw potential conclusions from. You do not know what science is. That is why you are religious, dogmatic and insulting about it, more worried about reputation by people in fancy robes and letter in front of or behind their names rather than the truth. Go get another booster. It works because the previous ones did not. Science. Right? Believe in and follow it. Does any other religion require that? Sorry, I mean “science” require that? No. ONLY belief systems or religions require blind belief and devote following. And you call that crap science. Nice!

      2. Agreed.Only persons lacking scientific understanding believes this conman.All of his inventions defy the laws of physics.I studied Physics.Anyone who has a basic understanding of science should see this as pure comedy.Even just a kid studying physics at form 4 can critique this better.This makes me wonder if the claim that as Zimbabweeans we are among the most educated in Africa is true at all.Its embarrassing to see a publication like TechZim producing something like this.But its no surprise to me.Its just a trend in our country.From the politicians,the pastors,and now to these ‘technoprenuers’…. They are all taking advantage of our ignorance.Science is not about believing,its a methodical and pragmatic arena.Only the scientifically uninformed or gullible people believe these fantasized ideas.We do not have a pull him down syndrome.We just have been empowered by knowledge to stop entertaining ridiculous propositions.Its a shame we have people publicly defending these ideas.His ideas do not even need testing.They are unfeasible.Seeing people believe this pains me.It just shows that the ‘education’ that we have is just of speaking good English and no other utility.Its ridiculous journalists give guys like these a platform.But…like i said,its no surprise,Even the Madungwes are given a voice.This guy is just like the Madungwe of science.This makes me wonder whats really in peoples heads…As Zimbabweans,we should do better than this!!!

          1. The RF Harvesting technology is feasible but I disagree with what he has displayed.

            1. A RF Harvester must have an impedance matching network system which is not there in his prototype.

            2. A RF Harvester requires a rectenna. Although RF produces an AC voltage, the voltage is never a pure sine wave, therefore, the rectenna stage will convert the AC to DC voltage, then of course you need to tune in the frequency and convert the DC to AC voltage.

            3. I cannot see any Antenna (Rx) in the topology. How can it convert radio frequencies to voltage without an Antenna?

            These 3 components are the basic of RF Energy Harvesting. Without them, they cannot work. I hope he goes back to conduct more R&D on this topic. If he can explain how he broke through those 3 points, then definitely people can start believing him.

            1. The antennae is the framework it could work like a sort of inverted Yagi or similar, being as the invention is outside of “normal” parameters then a kind of modified Quasai-Doppler technique might be used as a power transmitter. Nikola Tesla referred to something similar in his research also. The Pyramids in Giza are thought to have had some advanced (now forgotten/ covered-up?) for electric transmission. Wait N see ! 😉

        1. “I’ve been really well indoctrinated. That’s why I know this is not possible. The oil and gas energy industries pay my university a lot of money to tell me propaganda, just like how all doctors basically go to Pfizer school. But that’s just another one of 50 million coincidences in history. Conflict of interest does not exist. And science can totally prove impossible things. Because proving a negative is science. We just looked at what does not exist and then we told you what thing is. Science. See? You just have to believe in it and follow it. I learned that science church. I mean school.” <- That's basically you bro. It's hilarious! 😂🤦‍♂️

    2. 1) The inventor hasn’t made his invention available for testing to anyone. I’m pretty sure a lot of people would line up to perform tests provided they are given access to any of these ‘inventions’.
      2) Optionally (suppose theft of technology is a genuine fear), the inventor could conduct a an extensive demo proving the ‘no power source” claim? I’m sure the setup would be pretty easy – just place, say, the self powered generator at a neutral venue and have it power my fridge or something.
      3) Just make the products commercially available already and sell them. The believers are free to spend their hard earned cash and be the first to buy them and please, feel free to lord it over the naysayers as the inventor proves everyone wrong.

      If he can’t do any of the above, then why the heck should anyone believe his claims?

  4. This guy is a scammer who goes and orders a generator from some country and claims he has invented something just like that Munya at Astro mobile who just goes to China and puts a label on some cheap phone and claims he manufactures phones, got stuck with his poor Chinese phone.

  5. Nhaimi varume imi ana doubting thomas nyaya yenyu ndeyei apa
    Hanty chinhu chinotestwa here before we start investing and mass production…….how then is he going to scam pple ipapa
    Another issue irimu zim ipull him down syndrome ndiyo ikutitadzisa kuita zvinooneka

    1. Eazy, (1) you require electric power to drive radio transmitter (2) to then drive the Microsonic device (3) in tern will drive the generator, (4) that pulls motor vehicle, see eazy.

      Question, where does electrical current supply come from to drive radio transmitter and produce radio waves, in the first place ?

    2. Napája iba jeden dom preto, že iba jeden má k dispozícii. Nechajte aj vy si napájať svoj dom zariadením ktoré zabezpečuje 5 kW, 50 Hz, 230 V. Zariadenie je za 5014 dolárov US.

  6. It pains me that all the comments I’ve read so far as feedback on this space are from fellow African. But i am also very glad no one has come out to claim he or she was scammed. You have eyes, but you cannot see, ears but cannot hear and and a mind that has fooled and betrayed your common sense. Who made these laws of physics that yo’all are ranting about? Man or God? If the answer is man, then who owns man? If your answer is God then i ask you, is God not the author and finisher of all things?
    Before you condemn another man’s work, show us yours first let us see how it was made. Otherwise, shut the f up and mind your own business.
    My name is Austin Uzim, and i firmly believe in the Saith Technology products.

    1. i like your mentality mos. people will always fight you when you discover things. if it was a white man who discovered people would have applauded him but because its a black person who discovered , its a perfect shame coming from our black brothers and sisters who do nothing but sit and criticise other peoples invention. laws of physics are being broken daily but you never hear them criticise . before you oppose an invention show us yours first . how typical from someone using a free website.

  7. there are companies in zimbabwe building solar farms & hydro power projects to sell power to the national power utility.why is Chikumbutso not doing the same & get himself rich.am not saing his invention is false but am just wondering why he does not do so since at the end its all about getting money out of his invention.

  8. The machine is now on sale and they have over 5000 orders as we speak, visit their Facebook page and see. He was on Thrive 11 who validated his invention. So its time to take back your words and apologise because he has proven you all wrong

    1. You are lying, or you’ve been lied to. The machines only exist in fantasyland – it’s a shame, but that’s how it is. I hope at some point you see through the lies

  9. To the Saith Technologies group; well done. Many have not been able to actually see the technology straight from the books. Very Good. I’d like to have someone get in touch with me that we may conclude a vest of knowledge for conversion in technologies. In other words; Can you take another associate ? Or employee ? I may be of service. General Engineer; Junior Grade: ElectroMachanical to further in chemical

  10. The RF Harvesting technology is feasible but I disagree with what he has displayed.

    1. A RF Harvester must have an impedance matching network system which is not there in his prototype.

    2. A RF Harvester requires a rectenna. Although RF produces an AC voltage, the voltage is never a pure sine wave, therefore, the rectenna stage will convert the AC to DC voltage, then of course you need to tune in the frequency and convert the DC to AC voltage.

    These 3 components are the basic of RF Energy Harvesting. Without them, they cannot work. I hope he goes back to conduct more R&D on this topic. If he can explain how he broke through those 3 points, then definitely people can start believing him.

  11. guys need to think outside the box.everyone seems to be well vested with yester researches but bear in mind that all technology advances in time and new ideas pop up.this guy put some real work and got a bit more understanding than all else that thrives on history.this kind of knowledge doesnt come on a silver platter.inspiration from beyond and criticism is obvious from persimistic individuals.
