It’s all about the magnets!
Sixty-two-year-old Andrew Abolafia claims to have built a "Static Field Converter" that extracts hidden energy from magnets — thereby staying true to the general rule that free-energy inventions almost always involve magnets in some way.
Abolafia feels sure his invention will provide the solution to the world's need for energy, replacing our reliance on fossil fuels. But for some reason, the scientific community hasn't shown much interest. So Abolafia has been reduced to demonstrating his gizmo to local news reporters, hoping this will get the device the attention he believes it deserves. [wnyt.com

The question then is he a self-deluded inventor, or a huckster out for donations/investors?
The video doesn't say what the actual patent is for. My understanding is the U.S. patent office will not accept a patent application for a free energy machines unless it is accompanied by a working model. So he probably called it something else to get around this.
