Our motor concept is both novel and sustainable. It requires no complicated windings or Rare Earth magnets. The idea utilizes the Lorentz Force: In physics (particularly in electromagnetism) the Lorentz force is the combination of electric and magnetic force on a point charge due to electromagnetic fields. A particle of charge q moving with velocity v in the presence of an electric field E and a magnetic field B experiences a force
F = q E + q v × B
(in SI units[1][2]). Variations on this basic formula describe the magnetic force on a current-carrying wire (sometimes called Laplace force), the electromotive force in a wire loop moving through a magnetic field (an aspect of Faraday's law of induction), and the force on a charged particle which might be travelling near the speed of light (relativistic form of the Lorentz force).

Our concept is very scalable,; from the smallest of drone motors to very large flywheels to store power grid surpluses.
Please vote for our motor for positive changes to the world!
