Dr. Joseph Neuman demonstrated his prototype for the Chill Wave Amplifier to an audience of General Electric executives in 1957. The waves produced by the simple device shown above cooled a 87 degree f. room to 68 degrees f. in just twenty minutes. Neuman claimed the machine worked by harmonizing and resonating with the positive bio-energy in any given room, and spoke of "accumulations of standing orgone waves".
Predictably, the free-energy based concept was locked away by GE under a number of different patents. It might have remained hidden had not the technology leaked. It first surfaced on the revolutionary Beach Boys single Good Vibrations, said to have been recorded entirely in rooms conditioned by the Chill Wave Amplifier.
