The Sullivan Generator is a conceptual machine by inventor Mark Sullivan. Mark went into the Shark Tank with his patents and drawings and asked for $1 million for 10% equity in his idea, but failed to make the impression he was hoping for. Sullivan claimed his generator, if built, would use the Coriolis effect caused by the Earth’s rotation to create electricity from salt water, or industrial waste water. The water would undergo a desalination process where it is turned to steam. Sullivan says the machine would then create a steam vortex powered by the rotation of the Earth. This controlled hurricane would turn turbines that would produce electricity. Sullivan claims that aside from generating cheap Earth-driven power, the Sullivan Generator would also make clean water as a byproduct, as well as mineral deposits including gold.
