COOL!! I actually gasped out loud a couple times. THOSE ARE SO COOL!! I'm gonna have to think about all the many many applications, beyond toys and locks. With the spring, use in space came to mind, not sure for what.
i agree the push-pull locking spring is a huge game-changer. Here's a list of potential applications:
1. Dishwasher closure and locking (substitute pretty much any closure device of any kind from purses to drawers to the top button above the zipper on one's pants).
2. Flip the magnetic coupling 90 degrees, rotated around the axis, and you have a magnetically locked but never-touching torsional power transmission shaft.
3. Extension and retraction for an ink pen - provides nice magnetic cushion in extended mode!
4. Self-aligning Docking Ring for spacecraft. In this implementation, perhaps six to dozens are used, located around the docking ring, and linked by a large gear that turns them simultaneously. In the first position, they're attracted, but there's no bump due to the spring effect. Then, when they're all rotated, they attract and tightly align the docking rings. Subsequent mechanical clamps finish the job due to the pressure and large forces involved.
Imagine running these with an electric field among the magnetic field. You could potentially make cranes with smaller, lighter magnets but stronger magnetic adhesion. Or actually be able to use magnetic levitation suspensions in several practical applications without a bunch of added weight and power usage. The applications are limitless. My mind is adrift with ideas.
Does that mean they can make magnets that pull other magnets to a certain distance? Think of the potential, you can hold a piece of magent in your hand and control other magnets from far away.
I mean, probably not that far away, but still.. Awesome!
That was an amazing video. I hope you keep doing videos on companies like this, so that they get the recognition they need to get funding or other support to keep improving on what they are doing. Your videos are so fun, interesting and exciting.
Uhh... This is because once you switch angles so south is at the bottom, ofc the north of the other side will pull onto it and vice versa. It's like a line in the start because both north and the south are equal and it stats there but once you move one piece even a little, the ratio changes and they all connect to each other. I'm honestly not a science student or anything so forgive my law of "big and scientific" words.
Hey guys and gals. Perhaps this has already been mentioned. But could this technology be used to greatly reduce the energy usage and cost of a particle accelerator? I think it’s pulsating magnet that accelerate the particle and then a more constant field that steers it. Could this tech make a more efficient field? Even better being able to essentially change the field from positive to negative at will could that allow u to change the type of particle being accelerated. Example go from a neg charge electron (or some heavier neg charge particle) to a pos charge proton with the flick of a switch? combined with high temp superconductors who knows what’s possible. Would love ur input not sure if my logic is all there but that’s why I’m here to learn. Thanks all! :)
This could be applied to the concept of a car with magnetically held wheels. A spherical wheel with one magnet it attracted to the other keeping the spherical wheel on the vehicle but repels enough to create suspension for the vehicle
I need to know more. How do those machines create positive and negative poles on the same face of the magnets? How does that work? I'm new to "expanding my brain" (learning more about everything I can). Maybe I need to learn more about magnets
If the medical field were to adopt this technology my idea is everyone has a small magnet implant in your wrist. If you are in some type of accident like a car crash they can identify you and your blood type for transfusions. if you die in an accident the hospital can find your home and tell your family what happened. this is just an idea.
