Viktor Schauberger

Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 in Holzschlag, Upper Austria[1] – 25 September 1958 in Linz, Austria[1]) was an Austrian forest caretaker, naturalist, pseudoscientist,[2] philosopher, inventor and biomimicry experimenter.

Schauberger developed his own ideas based on what he observed in nature. In Implosion magazine, a magazine released by Schauberger's family, he said that aeronautical and marine engineers had incorrectly designed the propeller. He stated:

As best demonstrated by Nature in the case of the aerofoil maple-seed, today’s propeller is a pressure-screw and therefore a braking screw, whose purpose is to allow the heavy maple-seed to fall parachute-like slowly towards the ground and to be carried away sideways by the wind in the process. No bird has such a whirling thing on its head, nor a fish on its tail. Only man made use of this natural brake-screw for forward propulsion. As the propeller rotates, so does the resistance rise by the square of the rotational velocity. This is also a sign that this supposed propulsive device is unnaturally constructed and therefore out of place.[3]


In 1930, "Tragendes Wasser" was filmed, showing the functioning of the log flumes.
