A gift…well maybe

I think it’ll work…

So, there has been a spike in activity on my timeline concerning climate change. At the moment, many will be aware my attention is largely tied up with the gender-ideology shit show; however, climate change is hugely important and it’s important we support those in that fight.

We’re all encouraged to do what we can, even if it’s just one thing, to help repair the damage we’ve done to our world. So, I’m going to take time out to offer this….I hope it works, if anyone can throw maths at it, or indeed build it (not that difficult – 3d printer, magnets, and some cables), and let me know if it does indeed work as well as I think it will……

So much of the technology we use needs a DC supply: your phone/laptop/tablet battery, your car battery – in fact, a battery IS a DC supply (I realise this shouldn’t need explaining, but…..). Anyway, even when you plug items into the mains [AC], the electronics will require DC – this requires passing the AC through a diode bridge (to flip the negative half of the cycle), before large capacitors smooth it out it out to a stable DC (my electronics is rusty, but I believe this is still how it’s done). Furthermore, mains is 230V rms, while most electronics’ll likely work off a rail between, usually, what, 5 to 12, maybe 15V…..possibly more in some circumstances?….but why don’t we just generate DC?

Over the years, I’ve developed a design (entirely in my mind – the guy who drew it probably needed therapy after working to try get it out) for what I think is a viable, local, stable DC supply…..

The below image shows the main body of the device. In the middle, you’ll notice the cylindrical section in the middle, and around it there is array of gaps – there is also a small lip: this is intended for a 1mm thick steel(?) ring to see if attempting to homogenise the [magnetic] field made a difference…yeah, so on that: the gaps are for magnets, all with the same polarity facing it out. On the wider section – that tapers backwards – on the vertical face, there is also a ringed groove, also for a magnet with the same [as the others] polarity facing out (though I’ve already thought of a redesign that should increase torque).

The next image shows the middle of the part is a ring: this slides over (leaving a 1mm gap between and around, in that design) the cylindrical section of the first part. Please note, from the cutaway section, that the ring has an internal magnetic array too; the magnets’ inward polarity would be the same as the outward polarity of the magnetic array around the cylindrical part, i.e. they’d oppose one another – not only is there a “friction-less surface”, but the “surfaces” would actually be pushing against one another. You’ll notice on the vertical surface of the inner ring the same groove as previously mentioned…

The third picture shows the front section – this has the receiving holes for the locking mechanism: the lugs can be seen on the front of the cylindrical section on the first image.

The next image shows a wire diagram of the device. You’ll notice, in the middle “core” section, I’ve offset the angle the magnets are set into the cylindrical, and ring section – this is to not only select direction of rotation, but also to hopefully provide not only a friction-less surface, but also one that is pushing away, and possibly constantly accelerating, in the selected direction…do it in a vacuum and you’d remove air resistance too..

The fifth image shows a complete assembly – the ringed, free floating section, shown in the second image, is highlighted in yellow.

The grated parts are where the wiring’ll be. Set out the length of the grated parts, the wiring will lie across the rotating, free floating section with a magnetic field passing quickly [hopefully] under it…with the right hand rule, we can see each wire’ll have an induced current/emf, and could act alone as it’s own battery for a given circuit, or looped round (again and again…?) to provide a chain of “batteries”….a DC supply…

Now, of course, an induced current will set up a magnetic field opposing the motion causing it – the first real bit of resistance so far; also, the further out from the “core”, the more ‘leverage’ should probably be considered. At some point, there’ll be an equilibrium between the turning force from the “core” and resistant, induced magnetic field, but I have no idea where that’d be. If necessary, you’ll notice on the ring, free floating section, the arms to the outer section are narrow: if necessary, these can be bladed and moving air/gases could also be incorporated. And let’s face it, the whole assembly is crazy scalable in all sorts of ways…

That design is a proof of concept: designed to be set up and let go – I’d imagine it’d stop at some point, and it’d be good to have an idea when…control can be taken – a mechanism to slide the floating section over and away of the cylinder section…this, of course, introduces moving parts…

If it works as well as I hope, then I can imagine variations of it in homes, cars, hospitals, plasma jet propulsion perhaps? In satellites and actually so many other things.

So world, if you wanna throw maths at it or build it and see what happens, go for it, consider it a freebie. If it works, great, take it, run with it; if not as well as hoped, maybe there’s still something that can be taken from it…who knows? Here’s a couple more images to give an idea….

Peace ✌

P.S. Also, carbon capture? How about you move hemp production to under the auspices of forestry or agriculture? It grows like fuck, soaks up a good bit of carbon; it can be made into hemp-create (housing?), it can be used in plastics (material sciences?), it can be used in textiles (fashion?), and more…

I am so high right now, I’m off to bed.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
