In the 1970’s a self proclaimed ‘Telsa expert’ claimed to discover an amazing phenomena labelled The Hutchinson Effect.

What is the Hutchinson Effect?

As a fan of Nikola Tesla John Hutchison was attempting to recreate experiments made famous by Tesla. In the 1970‘s he came forward claiming that he had discovered a new phenomena. The effects of his experiment included things like metal objects floating to the ceiling, fusing with other materials, fracturing or shattering and other strange things.

The person who claimed to discover this phenomena named it after himself which I guess in a way sort of raises a little flag. His name is John Hutchinson who is described as an eccentric Canadian who was a big fan of Nikola Tesla. I mean who isn’t really? In 1979 he was working with high-voltage equipment and felt something hit his shoulder. It was a piece of metal. He threw it back in the direction it came from and it flew up and hit him again. This he claims was his discovery that fundamental frequencies can shield gravity. He then used Tesla coils, electrostatic generators and other equipment which created a ‘complex electromagnetic field’. He said heavy pieces of metal levitated and shot towards the ceiling. Some of them shattered. He believes the effect is caused by the opposing electromagnetic fields cancelling each other out and then creating a powerful flow of space energy. I don’t quite get it either so here is a video.

Is it a hoax?

Skeptics have long argued that it is all a hoax. Interestingly, it is only Hutchinson who seems to be able to recreate his claims. They suggest that perhaps Hutchinson has placed some sort of electromagnet on the roof and had pieces of metal hidden inside the materials he experimented with. If he held the camera upside and then turned the magnet off, the object which was stuck to the roof would fall to the floor. By having the camera upside down, it means that he could give the effect that the items were floating. He has been unable to convince the scientific community either. With no academic background and the fact his experiments were conducted from his garage, he has little to no credibility with the scientific community. He has also claimed to recreate the Philadelphia Experiment and a Death Ray.

Hutchinson himself says he can no longer recreate the phenomena and has admitted that some of the videos were faked, but not all of them. He claims that his work was destroyed by the government who then used his technology to perform the attacks on 9/11. It is a pretty out there conspiracy theory so we will leave that one alone.
