    Ok well I am new here and shall anounce this as my first post.

    For about the past year I have been thinking about this drawing diagrams and thinking how this would work and have decided i wanted someone elses input on this.

    Magnets repel magnets as said in my long tittle so why not use this concept instead of fossile fual hydro electric dams and wind turbins to produce electicity.

    if we could make one that is the size of a brick that would be amazeing instead of haveing massive complexs to produce our energy

    now im not talking about propetual energy but a better way to do things

    a magnet can last over 100s of years from what i have read but the parts like berrings and other machanical objects would have to be replaced

    it would be low cost and maintance and would just keep going and going and going like that little enagizer bunny...even though there battarys suck

    but this could also be applied to other things like the automotive indastry

    there are a vast amount of uses that this could be applied to but i have not thought of them yet

    If you get what I am going at please replie or just say hi

    That's how electricity is generated already! Magnets are moved through a coil of wire to produce electricity. But the thing is you have to have something move that magnet, and that takes energy. For most power plants that something is steam, produced by heating water with either radioactives or coal.

    ..................I know how they work already I am saying why not do it this way so that we dont waste vilible resources.

    using magnets to repel magnets insted of burning coal to turn a turnbine to turn the magnets inside of a coil

    is that a little clearer

    And what's moving the second magnet to get it into range of the first one? You still need an external power source of some sort.

    Why do you need a repelling force? Wouldn't attraction work just as well? Magnets are expensive. The Earth attracts water for a fraction of the cost. How about using this?

    That's actually a good idea. In very wet areas you could have high towers to collect rain over a wide area and use it to turn a turbine. The power could be used to electrolyse some of the water collected and produce hydrogen fuel.

    Send someone to collect the fuel every few weeks, and voila, practically free hydrogen.

    We could utilize the features of the natural terrain to collect the rainwater. Then we could construct a structure at places where the water is concentrated. I propose calling it a "dam." The water could then be used to mill grain, generate electricity, or any number of things. I think we're onto something.

    YOu can't mill grain with water, it just goes all soggy.
