I’ve posted the following fundraiser text over at Indiegogo.
- Send Sterling Allan to the Yildiz Magnet Motor Demonstration in Geneva – …To help Mr. Yildiz with his demonstration. …To personally witness a working all-magnet motor for the first time, with proof of its validity, along with anyone else who wishes to observe online or attend the Expo. ..To discuss terms with Mr. Yildiz of open sourcing. …To speak at a press conference to be held announcing the accomplishment. (Indiegogo; March 22, 2013)
Could it really be true that there is such a thing as an all-magnet motor that can provide rotational torque for useful energy generation, with no apparent input other than what nature provides through principles of magnetism not yet fully understood? Modern science emphatically says “NO”, but many inventors over the years have claimed to have defied that prediction, by building working motors.
Now, at the upcoming 41st International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva from April 10-14, 2013, the world may have a chance to see such a motor.
The Turkish patent office has invited inventor Muammer Yildiz, to whom they awarded such a patent, to display his all-magnet motor at that expo; and he has invited me to participate in that event.
As many of you who follow our Free Energy News know, I’ve been closely tracking the Yildiz all-magnet motor for the past few months, both in keeping a blog about it at PESWiki updated, as well as in helping to facilitate things through my interactions with the various players, including the inventor; his assistant, Halil Turkmen; the documentary film maker, Rene van der Woude of http://www.mixr.nl; Dr. Jorge Duarte of Eindhoven University, who has been vouching for this technology; and a guy, who for now prefers to remain anonymous, from another university who is helping to coordinate the scientific validation; among others involved in coordinating this.
We all, especially the inventor, are anxious to finally see this technology class vindicated once and for all, to never be doubted again.
This would be the beginning of a new scientific and energy revolution — a paradigm crasher, an eye opener, and the opening of a new path forward in providing clean solutions to the world’s energy problems.
With all the interactions I have had on this, many of them confidential, I am very certain about the reality of Mr. Yildiz’s motor design being real.
And I’m crossing my fingers that the technology will be able to get at least a minimal level of validation at the Geneva expo.
Most of the people I mentioned above have been probing around on this, and have a significant list of reasons why they are confident that the technology works.
What we can do, versus what will actually be displayed, has been the topic of much discussion behind the scenes, taking a wide range of variables into consideration, including politics of science, noise levels in the expo hall, safety issues, electronic magnetic memory erasing issues, feasibility of a scientifically credible environment for validation, possible alternate locations for moving the unit from the hall to a secondary location, feasibility of moving the set-up.
One of the limiting factors is that though the motors work, they have been built on a low budget and don’t always have the best possible components, such as the bearings needed to withstand the forces generated. Though well advanced from the duct tape and bailing wire stage of prototyping, they are not ready for full-on stress testing.
While he is on this trip, following the Geneva expo, Mr. Yildiz wants to take the motor(s) to a university for proper scientific testing, and he doesn’t want to jeopardize their operation by trying to show off too much at the expo. Nor does he want to risk the chance of a malfunction during a public display. So he is playing it very cautious.
In terms of capability, being very conservative, we could show one motor running the whole time, turning an alternator to power a 1000 Watt bank of lights.
What such a demonstration needs to prove is that for the size of the motor, there isn’t anything in today’s known scientific literature that could be concealed inside the motor that could possibly keep it running for as long as it is shown to be able to run.
The skeptics have been assuming that Mr. Yildiz has some kind of energy storage inside the motor cavity, by which he can show the shaft turning, but that he has not shown it running for long enough to rule out a hidden energy storage mechanism.
For the size of the motor, the most likely energy storage would be lithium ion batteries. And if the motor body was full of lithium ion batteries, the amount of power it could produce would be 1700 kilowatt-hours. So in order to fully satisfy the skeptics, the demonstration of Yildiz’ motor needs to be for at least long enough to surpass that amount of power; and most of them would want to see ten times that much before being fully convinced. So two hours of running continuously, producing 1000 Watts, would do the trick of showing at least as much power as any lithium-ion batteries packed inside the body could provide.
A likely iteration will be the fan blade that Yildiz usually uses to demonstrate the technology. That motor body will be 14 cm in diameter and about 21 cm long, and the fan is 25 cm in diameter. At the speed he runs it, that load is around 380 Watts. So to at least match the lithium-ion battery scenario, he would need to run it for 4.5 hours. And if it was still running at full speed at the end of that time, most skeptics would be scratching their heads, though not fully satisfied. But after 45 hours, they would have to admit there is something to this.
The expo hall will be open for 9 hours each day, so even if we were only able to do the fan, running the entire time, each day, that would be 2x what present technology is capable of providing.
I’ve been pushing hard to have a secondary location where we could enable continuous running of at least one motor for the entire 5-day event.
Yildiz says that the longest he has ever run a motor without stopping was fifteen days, with witnesses. But he needs witnesses willing to go on record, with credentials.
In Geneva, in addition to the university personnel who plan to come, we can also have others sign in and sign out, with their signature and credentials, to add to the list of witnesses of the technology running continuously. And by having a tag-team type of pass-off by always having someone else take over where they left off, a net duration can be established, with many overlapping witnesses throughout.
Another reason I would like to attend the Geneva expo will be to meet in person with Mr. Yildiz and talk through the possibility of having an open license for people to be able to pursue lower power versions of the design without an up-front license, with the stipulation that they remit a royalty on all commercial roll-outs. He has been very favorable so far in these discussions. My being there in person would be particularly important in seeing this to fruition.

- The motor(s) could be damaged during transport to the event.
- Mr. Yildiz could encounter problems assembling the system.
- The Expo venue may have rules (noise, safety) that disallow continuous operation of the motor.
- Webcams could malfunction, interrupting continuous observation by Internet audience.
- Mr. Yildiz may opt out of a secondary location because he wants to be present.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. If you don’t raise the amount needed for the trip, what happens to the funds?
A. The pledge is not collected if the goal is not met by at least 80%.
Q. If the 25-cm fan is attached and run at the usual speed (producing a 380 Watt load), how long will the motor need to run to rule out a hidden storage capacity?
A. 4.5 hours.
Q. If the same motor is attached to a 1000-Watt load (e.g. bank of lights) via an alternator, how long will the motor need to run to rule out a hidden storage capacity?
A. 102 minutes.
Q. How are you calculating the storage capacity?
A. One reader pointed out that: “According to Wikipedia, Li-Ion batteries can have a volumetric power density of 1900 J/cm3. With the given dimensions of 14 cm diameter x 21L, the motor body can contain approx. 3200 cm3 * 1900J = 6139 kJ of energy if it was packed with Li-Ion batteries. If the batteries fully discharge in 24 hrs, the power output would be about 71Watts on average.” That comes to 1704 Watt-hours.
Q. Where can we watch the streamed version of the demo?
A. The streaming location will be announced at PESWiki.com, among other places.
Q. What is the admittance fee to the event?
A. Apparently, it’s free to the public.
