A physicist claims that empty space can set objects in motion

The funny thing is, it doesn't seem to violate any known laws of physics (including conservation of energy, meaning this isn't going to result in any perpetual motion machines).

I've been thinking about the possibility of using "vaccum energy" since last summer. If they can actually pull it off one day...

OK, you're tapping the "zero-point" or "vaccum" energy. Woo hoo. Coolness and all that.

What happens if you use it up?

How do you recharge it - there ain't that much of it to start with.
