Plasma Portal designed by Bernard V. Maets.  Unfortunately, Bernard did not believe in patenting his work and our understanding of his incredible work is limited.

Type and Function:

The true power of the Plasma Portal is unknown.  Testing to date has shown it to have unlimited potential if sufficiently powered. The unit operates in two modes.  The first is the warm up or standby mode, indicated by the original Edison bulb on top of the unit.  The second is full plasma mode.  Both are shown in the photos of the unit.

Recovery Site:

This unit was initially recovered from a collection of crates containing primarily artwork and personal items of Claude Monet.  It significance was unknown until rediscoved in the 1980s during preparation for a show Monet work at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.  It was presented to the Maets Foundation in 1989 for further study and analysis.
