I accidentally stumbled upon this three-year-old video today, watched it and realized that the guy has just demonstrated what many people don’t believe or want to believe: that magnetic motors exist, work and can provide useful effects to humanity.
This is a demonstration of a linear magnetic motor in which the experimenter puts a piece of magnet at one of its ends and the magnet travels by itself, or should I say, with the help of the other magnets surrounding it, to the other end of the machine.
What’s to note in this video is that the shuttle magnet stops before reaching the other end. However, if there would be no end to it, the magnet would travel indefinitely.
The guy who made this linear magnetic motor explicitly says at the end that it’s nevertheless possible to reproduce the machine in a circular form and make it ever-spinning.
