The magnetic motor works on the principal that magnetism can be used to create a continuous motion machine. In other words, the idea is that magnetic properties can create a movement that continues endlessly. At this time, most of the machines created using this principle have utilized rotary motion. Some people mistakenly believe that a magnetic motor is the same as a regular motor or generator that uses a magnetic force to change electrical energy into mechanical energy. In truth, they are two very different things. Unlike the regular motor, the free energy magnetic motor creates movement without any form of electrical energy or movement needed to keep it running. Therefore, it is sometimes referred to as a motionless electromagnetic generator.
