Anyone intersted in perpetual motion?

It's not motion so much as "free" and "unlimited" energy.

A company in Ireland claims to have discovered a magnetic source of energy.

The company, Steorn, says its discovery is based on the interaction of magnetic fields and allows the production of clean, free and constant energy -- a concept that challenges one of the basic rules of physics.

It claims the technology can be used to supply energy for virtually all devices, from mobile phones to cars

Ok, so basicaly you put these huge magnets down and walk through them with whatever you want to charge, or make move? I know two things that do that now- well one actually that works two ways. One is a generator and the other is an electric motor.
The generator works on the principle of producing electricity by cutting the manetic field to produce electricity.
The motor is a piece of metal repulsed by (spinning) magnetic fields.

Sean McCarthy, Steorn's chief executive officer, said they had issued the challenge for 12 physicists to rigorously test the technology so it can be developed.

"What we have developed is a way to construct magnetic fields so that when you travel round the magnetic fields, starting and stopping at the same position, you have gained energy," McCarthy said.

"The energy isn't being converted from any other source such as the energy within the magnet. It's literally created. Once the technology operates it provides a constant stream of clean energy," he told Ireland's RTE radio

It takes energy to make permanent magnets and electricity to make electro-magnets.

Sorry, sounds like a modern version of a perpetual motion machine.
