Two school kids, graduates, had a project to do in order to finish the year. So they wanted to make something that will bring changes, they didn’t want to make something that it is already here. That’s why they used their knowledge that they got in school and decided to make an engine that will use solenoids and it will produce some serious horse power.
A solenoid is a coil made out of thin copper wire that is rolled on a piece of metal. The purpose of the solenoid is that it becomes a magnet when there is electricity inside the coil. When you turn it off it loses the magnetic powers.
That’s why it is so useful, when you need a magnet turn it on, if not shut it down. So the two students made this motor that uses solenoids and it is genius, it has separate control for all the solenoids, and there is also a crank shaft that will deliver the power where you need it. And it is not consuming too much electricity as well. Maybe they will even win a Nobel Prize. Check it out here :

Excellent job Jeffrey and Connor. Make it a reality.
I fully agree with you Florence.
You should quickly fit condos or a transistorised “ignition” instead of the switches… you should setup the timing !
Thanks for the useful advice friend.
Yes, except that such things were being built a hundred years ago and it’s probably less efficient than any other electric motor. Seriously do you have to tell us that a coil of wire with a current bakes an electric field? That was discovered almost 200 years ago by William Sturgeon and It’s just an electric motor much like boys used to build a hundred years ago for fun. I built on back in the 1950’s as did a host of other boys from plans in a book.
Michael Faraday built electric motors in the 1820s and this thing is primitve at best.
Finally it may be ingenius but it isn’t “genius” OK?
You have a point there Glenn. But I still admire the efforts made for this engine.
While the concept and execution are really cool, I see little to no use of this in real life. The beauty of the electric motor lies in its simplicity, just 1 moving part. Unless they find a way to simplify it, this design is way too complicated, like an internal combustion engine, with pistons, a crankshaft, rods, bearings, contact points etc which are all subject to wear.
I sure hope the design will be improved in near future Alexander.
