I stumbled on this last night: it’s an interesting little two-minute video of a guy putting together a machine that “produces electricity” from magnets. Obviously, something isn’t quite right about it – if it works the way he says it works, then we could produce free electricity. And we know that isn’t possible. I haven’t quite figured it out. Is it a hoax? Is there something going on – something that’s producing energy – that isn’t quite obvious? I’m not sure, but I’m leaning towards ‘hoax’.
Magnets are also quite common in the whole ‘perpetual motion machine industry’. What do you think? Have an explanation for this one?
