Magnet Motors

Magnet motors are things that are just now beginning to make some waves. There have been several scientists who have found that it is possible to make and run a motor using permanent magnets. By permanent magnets I mean that they are not electromagnets--they cannot be shut off. In an electromagnet, a current is run through a wire and a magnetic field occurs. In a permanent magnet, the magnetic field is always there.

There have been big strides made in Japan with magnet motors. There are fans that are in production that utilize the magnet for motion. What happens is the energy contained inside the permanent magnet is harnessed and used. You then have a motor that does not need electricity or any other outside energy source to run.

This is wonderful for a world that is losing natural energy sources faster than we originally thought. This could open up a whole new way of producing energy that is cleaner and more effective than before. However, many scientists are skeptical about this new venture. They claim that this breaks the Law of Conservation of Energy. Well, at one point humans thought the world was flat, right?

Making Your Own Magnet Motors

There are ways that you can make your own magnet motors right in your home. You can make a CD motor if you like. If you really get into it, you may be able to cut back your electricity bill a little bit. If you are interested in knowing how to build your own motor, you can find instructions on the Internet. Just do a search, look around and see what you come up with!
