  • As someone who learned quite a bit of electronics in school the words "ill hook up this (10V) power supply to this (1-2V) LED (with no resistor in front)" gave me extreme anxiety for the LEDs... I guess they didnt just die because you didnt go full send on the flywheel rpm tho, so it turned out okay i guess ^^

  • I bet you think the wobbling is because various parts aren't quite straight enough, or on a flat enough surface, but actually, it's due to the "intermediate axis theorem", which in a nutshell says that most things that are spinning are actually spinning around multiple axes. Veritassium did a great video about it . You can avoid the wobble if you make your spinning disk's mass more concentrated in the pancake section, rather than having a secondary spinning disk attached to the side like a sidecar, and this change will be crucial if you ever want to get your desktop flywheel up to higher speeds. This will mean putting the magnets in the main disk itself. Speaking of higher speeds, the next step in your project is to support using it as both a generator *and* a motor: that is, the same coils you've already wired up can be used to get it to spin faster, not just slow it down. I hope you do a follow-up video about that!

  • Dude, you should have tried a heavier flywheel to see how long it will run for. Then it would be cool to see a graph of electrical load to turning time. Great project though

  • How quickly does the load affect the stopping force on the rotation?

    Chris TChris T10 ชั่วโมงที่ผ่านมา

  • You would think that adding a heavy flywheel then spinning this at a high speed while moving another magenting force closer with a force that would make it spin faster and freely then remove the motor it would be able to accomplish a continuous motion that will not stop. But I'm just a retard.

  • You could probably get around the need for a rectifier by connecting the LEDs in Full Bridge configuration and using an AC motor.

  • connect a bike without wheels or steering wheel to it and go as fast as possible.

  • wow

  • Like I'm a two year old...why would opposing magnets on the ends of the shaft not make it spin on its own

    Mike ShelogowskiMike Shelogowskiวันที่ผ่านมา
  • Hi Tom! I recommend you put a gearbox on the other side of the shaft but linked with magnets so friction isn’t too high but if that doesn’t work you can try to make a very fast gearbox linked with a shaft

  • See if you can put the electric motor to spin the flywheel so it powers itself with just a little push from you to start the motion !

    John JonesJohn Jonesวันที่ผ่านมา
    • No! That is an attempt to make a 100% efficient machine. And NO MACHINE IS OR CAN BE MADE 100% EFFICIENT

  • very cool video

  • Get a little motor, get the flywheel to power the motor and the motor to power the flywheel so that it doesn't stop spinning

    Tyrone MathewTyrone Mathewวันที่ผ่านมา
    • You must not know much, it won’t work!

  • It's just a dynamo/generator with a floating armature. Putting a load on the output, will stop the flywheel rotations pretty quick.

  • i had an idea years ago, that i do not have the tech savvy skills to manufacture or the money for the materials. but what my idea was, was to use an "uber" magnet assembly to spin a generator. what is an uber magnet? well the one i saw that the idea formed around was a magnet used to slow a world land speed record vehicle.... it costed by what they said, 25,000 dollars for one about the size of a deck of cards. but they also said in the show i saw it in, that uber magnets are the strongest magnets on the planet... the reason it worked for slowing the vehicle is that normal brakes for a vehicle traveling 600 mph would burn out in the span they'd need to be applied to stop the vehicle... salt beds are only so big..>LOL anyhow the idea i had i called the "independence generator" and the assembly basically kept that point between attraction and repulsion moving to keep the drive shaft in a constant rotating motion. then attach the shaft to a generator.... i talked to one engineer about funding and he thought i was trying to con him. after that i got disheartened... but i do feel the plans i drew up and the idea itself is sound... thou the magnets are very expensive, since i have limited knowledge about life expectancy, power distribution, and such i could never really scale the idea to a version to make a prototype. but after watching information about the flywheel battery and the tesla turbine.... somehow it would be interesting to combine them? eh i have to many ideas... peace.

  • The fact you need to charge the capacitor in full to run 1 ampere rated motor... The project only produce 100-500 mAh. Use Tesla concept to maxOut this project potential.

  • Ball bearings are 99% when freshly lubricated?

    GediminasGediminas2 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • I'd like to see this re-done to scale it to power an electric motor that continues to keep it spinning indefinitely. I feel this is the closet I've seen to an actual self perpetual motor setup do to the low friction on the flywheel. Just a thought.

    Tim FellabaumTim Fellabaum2 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • If not for the inductive resistance imposed by eddy current upon a given load, this concept would make for a viable form of energy storage.

  • I’m new to this channel. I need a long break from world events. I met Joe Newman many years ago. I seen his generator that ran on the magnetic field of the planet ? I’m not sure I just happen to see your video and his name popped into my head. People called him crazy a fake a snake oil salesman. I was a young man and close to being sent to Saudi Arabia in a campaign to push saddam out of Kuwait. But I was watching scientists from big oil & gas leave his barn . They were mumbling we can’t debunk this and no one could. I wonder if he still alive? Anyway big oil & gas are running out of time. They should be checking all means of power clean hopefully. My wife here watching me write this. She from the Philippines she said there was a guy who invented a water fueled engine. She said he was killed for the motor. I read he sold the idea . It’s either destroyed or sitting on a shelf somewhere with thousands of other ideas people dreamed up. This is the first video I seen of yours . Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us.

  • Maybe you can build some kind of wind turbine linked to this ?

    NetizenZNetizenZ2 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • Interesting, so you could power the flywheel by wind using a clutch to keep the flywheel spinning when the wind stops.

  • Dude! This was _awesome!_ Building a mini maglev electric generator by hand has always been some dream sci-fi project of mine, but I'm more of a software guy than physical electronics, sadly. Thanks for making a dream project come to life in only a 15min video! LOVED IT! Insta-sub. Not sure how I hadn't found you before!

    Tim RobbTim Robb2 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • So why didn't you modify your flywheel to the motor, so when you spin it, the current provided would power the motor and maintain the speed of the flywheel? :)

    MayorMikes TnTMayorMikes TnT2 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Because of energy loss! One small rpm loss will not power the motor enough to keep it at a constant speed, and you need to have a set constant speed or the whole thing doesn’t know where to stay at but either way IT WON’T WORK

  • what happen if you connect the propeller at the axis's wheel and put into wind?

  • great effort ..., but as you increase the load on the electric generator the friction force become dominate and the spinning duration falls down

    tapioco71tapioco712 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • Couldn't this be used to charge a capacitor that would pulse the magnets for more spin?

    Riley CourtierRiley Courtier2 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • You're losing something like 0.6v through the diodes / rectifier due to the forward conduction drop. So at the lower voltage of the original version, you're efficiency is really low.

    Roger SRoger S2 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • Dude, even with that axis not very well balanced, your toy worked perfectly. The idea of magnetic "bearings" is great for generators. Maybe in the future they will be used more often. The detail level you print to your videos is amazing. Keep them coming. Thanks!

  • You are wrong! a flywheel is not a battery. Batteries make electricity from chemical reactions. Flywheels store kinetic energy from what ever motion source but are not usefull for moving uses as they add to much weight. The same goes for his flywheel bike its the wrong application for the device.

  • Why do you keep talking about Voltage which as so many like to rave about, is meaningless. You should be talking about power - Watts. Each LED you add on your generator circuit will increase the electrical energy draw and the potential energy you spun into the flywheel will dissipate faster.
