Running Magnet Motors Witnessed
Four of twenty New Energy Congress members who responded to a week-long poll said they had personally witnessed a magnet motor in operation in which magnets were the only motive force.

Have you ever seen a magnet motor in operation? By "magnet
motor", I mean a motor in which magnets are the only driving force.
Maybe its via magnets repelling magnets, or attracting, or both; and the result
is continuous rotation.
Four of twenty New
Energy Congress members who responded to an anonymous poll this past week
said they had. One out of every five -- twenty percent -- of those
who answered the poll have personally seen a magnet motor in operation. I
wasn't one of them.
Conventional physics says that it is "impossible" for magnets to
provide a primary energy source. Yet thousands of researchers worldwide have
been pursuing the task of building a working magnet
motor. Many claim to have achieved this objective. Most of those are
quiet about their accomplishment. None have reached the marketplace.
Science tends to lag behind inventors who don't know what is or is not possible,
revising their laws to fit the new observations. If magnet motors really
are possible, scientists will no doubt figure out where the energy is coming
from, whether it is from the Zero Point, or from some new principle of magnetism
hitherto not appreciated.
The Steorn "Orbo" is allegedly one such motor, which was supposed to
have been debuted for the world to see on July 4, 2007, but it ran into
problems, and instead the world saw a gizmo not running. (Ref.)
Meanwhile, millions have seen a video of what appears to be a running magnet motor
-- the Perendev, originally coined from the phrase "perpetual energy
device," but later changed to the more politically correct, "permanent
energy device". (Ref.1, ref.2,
Myself (left) with Mike Brady,

I happen to have been involved in that motor. I helped assemble it in
Johannesburg in December of 2002 when it came from the machine shop, but we
couldn't get it to run during the week that we were there. The video was
produced a couple of months later by the inventor, Mike Brady; and I was given
permission to publish it in Aug. 2004 prior to a German television debut that
was supposed to take place but which never materialized. (Ref.)
We had our mechanical engineer associate, Douglas K. Furr build a 1/4-scale replica of
the Perendev design, with Brady's permission, but were not
able to get it running. For some reason, often when people see a video that has
been posted of that motor, they think it is a functioning device, even though
the video shows me spinning and stopping the shaft with my hand, and I state
that we've not been able to get it to run on its own. I guess their
thinking it is a functioning magnet motor is due to a wishful thinking syndrome
In all this time, I've heard of a lot of claims to working magnet motors, some of
which seem credible, but I've never personally witnessed one running.
I've also surrounded myself with a lot of experienced people in the field who
are open minded but who require proof. I founded the New Energy Congress a
couple of years ago in order to review the various exotic clean energy
technology claims and then rank them according to a set of the criteria
including renewable, affordable, credible, and safe. We compile these in a
Top 100 Clean Energy Technologies listing.
Then a couple of weeks ago, when I was consulting John Dunlap, an entrepreneur who wanted to
advance magnet motor technology, I was embarrassed when I couldn't answer
whether or not any of the approximate forty NEC members had personally witnessed
a magnet motor running. I could answer for myself, but I couldn't answer
So on Sept. 19, I wrote to the NEC:
- "Have any of you members of the NEC seen a magnet motor in operation
- "By 'magnet motor' I'm referring to motors that run only on magnets,
with no other motive force. A separate question would be whether you were
able to confirm that the magnets were not diminishing in gauss in the
process of providing rotational power, but my present primary question is
more broad, relating to a magnet-only-powered motor.
"It seems like maybe one or two of you have witness one in person, but I can't recall who or what. I've heard of some 20 - 25 different claims to working magnet motors that seemed possibly credible, but have never seen one in person.
- "My second question would be, if you have seen one in operation,
would you be willing to go on record as having done so?
"Since it is possible that if you have seen one, you are under NDA not to disclose that, I've created an anonymous poll"
The wording of the poll was simple:
- "Have you seen a magnet motor in operation in person? 'Magnet motor'
= a motor that run only on magnets, with no other motive force."
Two members of the congress came forward in the private NEC forum to discuss
One said that he had not yet confirmed that the magnets were not diminishing over time, and that he was under NDA from giving any details, but that he was very encouraged by what he had seen. Formerly, he was among the skeptics who did not think that such a motor could be built.
The 20% affirmative response by the NEC members is not
representative of the public at large, inasmuch as the NEC is composed of people
who pursue exotic energy technology.
A follow-up poll has been prepared for the general public (posted
above). I've also created a poll
(Sept. 29 - Oct. 12) for the fe_updates newsletter group who received my email
notices of the daily FreeEnergyNews.com news items. That group is more
likely to have results resembling those of the NEC, than of the public in
general. Also, the general poll above is not going to be a true reflection
of the general populace inasmuch as people who come to this news page in the
first place are likely to be an unusual set to begin with.
I also plan to follow this NEC poll up with additional polls of the NEC about some of the other
exotic technologies we cover, such as electromagnetic overunity, electrolysis
overunity, gravity wheels, and cold fusion.
Though such such polls are not the same as a scientifically sound validation
using calibrated measurement tools, video documentation, and other data
collection, it does help increase the hope factor for these technologies that
science rebuffs -- as they did human flight, among other things they said were
