I've been working on this video for the past month. Even though this technology is in it's infancy and has lacked funding for further research. I did find it rather interesting. The flaw in this technology, is the running life of the magnets. Eventually, they die out. But with further research and ingenuity this technology could be a winner in my opinion, and is probably one of the safest options out there at the moment compared to other so called energy technologies. The term 'Free Energy' may not be deemed as 'free'. Simple fact is this technology uses batteries, to power the system. So you're not getting something for nothing. If it's a couple of batteries i have to pay for rather than forking out the money for expensive fuel, i like that idea.
Reed has invented and patented a motor that consumes no fuel and emits no fumes. It is powerful enough to turn a 7,000-watt generator, which is enough electricity to run an average home. Production of the Reed Magnetic Motor for use by the general public may begin by year's end. Reed, 57, has also invented an automobile called "Surge" that employs his new technology. Unlike a battery-powered car, Reed's Surge does not have to be plugged in to be recharged. The car recharges itself as it rolls down the highway at speeds of up to 85 miles an hour. Reed and actor Dennis Weaver, a cousin and inventor in the project, plan to make the first highway test-run of the car this summer. The 1989 prototype uses a horizontal shaft with several magnets on it. Above the shaft are four vertical spring-loaded pistons with a magnet on the end closest to the shaft. Turning the hand crank spins the horizontal shaft and the magnetic spring-loaded pistons move up and down to trigger the motion of the shaft and the magnetic force field. Once the shaft is put into motion, it continues to spin until a brake is applied. Instead of moveable pistons, the latest model of the motor uses and electronic system and stationary magnets to start and control the motion of the shaft. Consequently, the only moving part in the motor is the horizontal shaft. In the current model, the shaft turns in bearings, but Reed said the mass-produced model will not have the bearings. Instead, the shaft will be magnetically suspended inside the motor casing. Suspending the shaft means there will be nothing to wear out, or make noise, Reed said. The federal government is aware of what is going on at Reed Technologies. In fact, Reed said NASA has volunteered to test the motor. Reed estimated it will cost about $3,500 per motor to mass produce his invention. / Surge Technology -- A 2008 Video Upload and there is a Peswiki about Troy Reed -- In around 1994, Troy Reed claimed to have a fuel-less, pollution-free motor with around 7 kilowatts of output, powerful enough to run a house or a car. The technology received a flurry of high-level interest, including major media. Actor and co-inventor, Dennis Weaver organized a cross-country demonstration. The technology was apparently hampered when Troy's wife and VP of the company divorced and moved to Costa Rica.
