OriginEdit

James Watt engineered a more efficient version of the 1712 Newcomen steam engine, helping initiate the Industrial Revolution on a massive scale. He realized that contemporary engine designs wasted a great deal of energy by repeatedly cooling and reheating the cylinder. Watt introduced a design enhancement, the separate condenser, which avoided this waste of energy and radically improved the power, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of steam engines. Eventually he adapted his engine to produce rotary motion, greatly broadening its use beyond pumping water.

EffectsEdit

Will absorb the raw energy output made by light sources and chemical reactions. The resulting energy becomes an equivalent amount of steam, which appears to be compatible with heavy machinery and even directly into electrical devices.
