Zim inventor develops TV that doesn’t need a power cable, Is that even possible?

Maxwell Chikumbutso Radio Frequency TV Television

Zimbabwean inventor Maxwell Chikumbutso has reportedly created a radio-frequency powered television. This means that there is no power cable and the TV is powered purely by radio waves similar to WiFi and Bluetooth.

“With an RF-powered generator embedded on a TV set, it is now possible for many people to enjoy watching TV whilst they are off-grid. For me, this started off as a dream in 2003, but today it’s now a reality. We have successfully developed a solution that powers televisions, smartphones, laptop computers, fridges just to name a few.

“Goodbye to electric wired home appliances. Welcome to the future with the world’s first Free Energy powered 55″ UHD Samsung TV. The dawn of wireless self-powered gadgets is here!”

The concept isn’t new because Samsung debuted a radio-frequency powered TV remote at CES 2022 which also has a small solar panel on the back. However, what Maxwell Chikumbutso has done, if true, could mean that conventional electrical infrastructure is a thing of the past because it will all be antenna arrays. TVs, smartphones and all other devices will be radio frequency powered

But is this even possible?

    1. This guy is a fraud, ndiye futi wePower generator that harnesses RF radiation and converts it to electricity apparently. He hasn’t he brought even a single one of his inventions to market.

      1. He hasn’t invented a thing, modding is not inventing. TechZim munyore maheadlines kwawo. Better kutonyora nezve John Deere autonomous tractor and tillage tool

    2. Read and understand … read carefully when Samsung gets mentioned, understanding is key and keeps you away from anger.
      Thank you

      1. “Zimbabwean inventor Maxwell Chikumbutso has reportedly created a radio-frequency powered television. This means that there is no power cable and the TV is powered purely by radio waves similar to WiFi and Bluetooth.”
        “Goodbye to electric wired home appliances. Welcome to the future with the world’s first Free Energy powered 55″ UHD Samsung TV. The dawn of wireless self-powered gadgets is here!”
        Hey idiot did you understand that?? The TV was built by Samsung so it’s very idiotic and dumb to say someone created a TV when it’s very clear they didn’t

    3. How os he powering his rf generator? From micro-volts of rf to watts for TV powering…. mmmmm this dude is nt telling the truth

    1. He didn’t even customise anything?? He is very stupid now that TV doesn’t have a valid warranty 😂😂😂😂😂

  1. Lol, I appreciate the struggle to keep things diplomatic! The basic concepts of wireless power transmission have been theorised and proven for over a hundred years but I can accept that science can move forward. What feeds my scepticism here is the reluctance to just demo this tech in a controlled environment to observers. He doesn’t have to give up any secret recipes, heck, he could even call it straight up magic! Just set this up in a secure space on a plexiglass stand and let it run for a week. It would prove at the very least that it’s not just running on an internal battery and that something external and contactless is keeping it going. Short of that I can’t help but be sceptical.

  2. conventional electrical infrastructure is a thing of the past because it will all be antenna arrays??? Those antennas will still need power, so how will electrical infrastructure be a thing of the past?

    1. The key word is ‘conventional’. There will always be some form of infrastructure, but in this theoretical instance, it won’t be the typical traditional infrastructure we are used to.

  3. Iko kamunyati kake kaarikuti kanopedza masports hakazokonzeri interference with other gadgets?😂😂😂😂

  4. Bull – this FRAUDSTER keeps coming with silly, so called inventions which never materialize – I think it’s to scam gullible wannabe ‘investors’

  5. That’s great news from Sir Maxwell. Never backdown from your endeavours in breaking the long established and ruthless imperialist stronghold in technological breakthroughs and discoveries.

  6. Ndo problem vanhu vasina kudzidza zvakadzama vakatanga kunyora kunyora ma Articles..Staff Writer clearly dosent know what an Invention is….

  7. Guys is a fraud. Just check the imaginary adventures that he has inbetween his “inventions”. Did you know that he claims to own a private jet? Jet bought with what money since his fringe science creations never seem to make it to market. Add to that an imaginary company that apparently has the HIT vice chancellor as a board member and any normal person would be sceptical. Techzim can make a follow up on that and expose this guy once and for all.

  8. Mupei ma haloperidol tablets..ma piritsi e vanhu vanopenga!!
    Atanga kuda ku breaker ma rules of physics. A psych ward somewhere is searching for him. Hakuna zvinhu zvakadaro, hakuna. Vana Samsung invest billions of dollars in RnD pozouya tsoko hake oenda kumberi kwavo with “inventions” we have never seen working. A simple test run in the presence of actual engineers and our university profs and docs would do him no harm. Chawa gadzira ngachi shande tichiona, it’s that simple.

  9. There was a nigerian who claimed to make a water generator that consumed no water.
    At the time all his fans told us sceptics to bog off. 3 years later – nothing, no peer reviews, no research papers, no product release nada.

    perpetual motion machines/Infinite ‘free’ energy generators are always a scam.

  10. At this rate this guy will be talking about vibranium and infinity stones. You don’t increase power like that out of thin air. Psychosis detected.

      1. Yeah right….Great Zimbabwe ruins!!! We’ve been there before. The late RGM went right round the country’s provinces donating computers to schools with no electricity. Amongst his sycophantic goons were people with university degrees etc. We really are a desperate nation zveshuwa if we believe such BS. Maybe Chikumbutso is a ZPF project that is launched just before elections to fool those who are naive enough to be fooled and they seem to be the many….

  11. Maxwell Chikumbutso is a genius in the Radio Frequency Green energy.
    On it not being on public is coz
    1) the technology is going through some tests to ascertain its safety and reliability since it was once labeled a perpetual energy device.
    2) to create formal intellectual property procedures.
    3) protect his life since the energy sector have so many moguls who feel threatened by this free energy thing. Maybe those who are saying he is a Scam are some of them who are baying for his blood.
    Our planet is surrounded by magnetic waves which make us to have the north and south poles
    Further our galaxies have some energies surrounding and protecting them. Some of these energy are even harmful to us.
    It only need us or anyone who need further knowledge to ask him.
    Let’s take into consideration that he have managed to brake 3 laws of physics. These laws are now void and they need to be deleted.
    One thing I like is that he work with professionals in the emerging energy industry and myself i am convinced with his work.
    Guys let’s take note that this issue of free energy have been researched for long since the days Nicole Tesla and none have made such mind blowing discoveries till Max come into light.
    Yes. When science is studied it not starting from zero since a lot have been done. All the recent scientists work with the available equipments and develop them to the next level.
    Yes he didn’t devep the Samsung TV but he add his technology which make it to be able to work without connecting it to the main system.
    Ngatidzidzei kurumbidza zvaitwa nevamwe especially us maZimba, musatinyadzisa.

    Let’s all appreciate this great invention of our time. It will revolutionarize the global energy sector.
    With Maxwell Chikumbutso, our globe is going to be clean again.

    Take us further Maxwell Chikumbutso. I am long waiting to use your generator, car and TV powered by RF

      1. I wouldn’t know the correct terms or laws, but here is what sticks out to a TV-Sci-Fi-Taught layman like me:
        – creating something out of almost nothing (his claimed outputs seemingly exceeds the primary source)
        – bending the natural behaviours of Electromagnetic Emissions without visible aides (waves would have to converge on his devices on their own, like they are being sucked in)
        – near or beyond perfect efficiencies (usually there is significant loss at every step of energy generation, transmission, conversion etc)

        I’ve now lived long enough to see some previously fictional tech come to life during my lifetime, but my scepticism is strong with this one. Its no joke to say that if its true, it will usher in a new historical age like the bronze or information age.

    1. Google his name and find out other stupid “discoveries” or “inventions” to his name.
      Zvekupemberera zvemahara zvauraya Zimbabwe.

  12. Lol…People will believe that a white man came back from the dead and flew to heaven but cant comprehend that the laws of physics can be broken and new deeper laws found out. It was once a law/belief that man can not fly. Alas. Here we are. Shanda Maxwell shanda.

  13. Hahaha funniest thing I’ve ever read. I’ll call this one joke of the year and that says something coz tiri muna January. A demo won’t hurt anyone. So u think what u said is reason enough for him to sit on “discoveries” that would change our way of life and prolly make him a trillionaire? Magetsi haaawe dzerwe like that. That’s wrong. The day “he makes it “; i will fly off Joina city building using cardboard wings. Hell , I’ll even swallow my phone whilst im at it.

  15. You Africans always hating on a fellow African.Inventing is not an easy thing to accomplish.And first and foremost he is not even using your finances to accomplish his inventions.You will always be under other races because of your retarded thinking.Many companies put through concept inventions that never make it to market.Maxwell is going to make it big irregardless of what you think of him.He is trying to change his circumstances,what are you doing besides complaining about the economy and such.You think because you studied on the topic makes you understand it all.Science does not yet understand everything, many inventions are coming that will break the laws of physics and other scientific discplines.Let the Man prove himself true or a fraud.

    1. Im making cardboard wings that have anti gravity thrusters. I can fly at any altitude for as long as i want. Sometimes i break the sound barrier but im still in testing. Wouldn’t u want to invest in a fellow Zimbabwean’s work? Im telling you, cardboard wings are the future of aerial travel 🙂

  16. What I know is AliExpress and Alibaba are very useful these days, you can buy buses, helicopters,fones,cars etc and claim u have designed(manufactured) your own brand of product with your own logo as Chinese suppliers can customize products to your own taste and will.Even Infinity stones are available for sale😆😆😆😆

  18. It might be interesting to just Google “Maxwell Sangulani Chikumbutso”. This fool can never be anything close to being called an engineer. He is a fraud period, find out more “diesel from Chinhoyi”-like stories for those who are lazy to use their brains.

  19. Ginimbi akafa guys – the dude needs new backers saka has to hook them with new promises give him a break kani kkk

  20. u want him to come to your house and show u his tech,who a you?its you who need pills,just bcoz u haven’t seen it iwewe does it mean it dsnt exist,,do u no everything au google,we saw his tech if u have nothing gud to say shut ur mouth

    1. It’s always suspicious when an individual calls him/herself “we”, are you counting your bollox as well? Or your other hair-brained colleagues? Watumwa ne zanu here isingadi criticism?

    2. He has no tech my angry friend. I know we as Zims want something to hope for, something positive but truth be told that guy is a liar and a fraudulent bastard. By the way, where have you seen his tech… working?? Christ , people really are gullible 🤣

  21. This seem to be in violation of the universal law of energy conservation. Which is not possible. Let the inventor disclose the actual energy source. Energy transfer by radiation is itself not new.

  22. No wonder why africans remain poor the hate i see from all of them here is just to much he did it period . Just because yoy haven’t seen it elsewhere doesnt mean it can’t be done no wonder we lose people like this and the tech ends up being sold to the whites coz a black man will likely never appreciate another black mans work

  23. What is the source of the RF why arent this journalist asking him this simple question? And doesn’t the source that is generating these waves need conventional power?
