This is a video from creator, Paul Messenger, his first video after years of trying to create a device to negate gravity.
Message from Messenger, Paul:
When I embarked on this build I had 2 fundamental choices.
The first was a wheel with a normal hub, but with all the levitational magnets around it.
This would be easier to get to rotate at speed, but would require using a lot of internal
space, and I really thought that this would not work as the concept required complete
isolation of the rotor from the machine.
The second choice was to try to spin a magnetically levitating rotor using small frame
mounted retractable guide wheels. This proved to be very difficult for me to achieve.
There is considerable bouncing as the magnetic fields try to move the rotor out of
alignment. I have not been able to get sufficient speed for successful dynamic rotation.
I recently had a new thought. A third option. A hybrid system to convert my existing
machine. This would see a large spoke wheel within the machine. The retractable guide
wheels would be mounted on this wheel, and would be held firmly against the rotor.
When a suitable speed is reached for guide wheel retraction, this would occur while
both the rotor and wheel are moving at the same speed relative to each other. As the wheel
is not driven it would then just stop, and the dynamically spinning rotor would have the
isolation I believe to be desirable.
I have made a start on building the parts required for this conversion. Initially I will fix the
spoke wheel directly to the rotor for simplicity, but will make the wheel for possible addition of
the guide wheels. I expect it will take a few months to get the machine running again.
As can be seen in the video, the machine is now running in this new mode. Top speed so far is
4.2 meters per second. Some work is required on programming to allow for remote (safe)
incremental speed increase. I will need about 10 MPS for guide wheel retraction to achieve
full dynamic levitating rotation of the Rotor. This is a guess only. 7 MPS is 1 rev per second.
With the central wheel installed the current is now remaining steady. This appears to be air
resistance from the spokes. I may need to provide covers, as in racing bikes, to minimize this.
A freely rotating levitating Rotor should require very little power.
