Has anyone experienced this motor? http://www.hojomotor.com/vid
Is it a hoax or scam? It is too good to be true.
Thanks

scam. I looked into it. Patents are expired and nothing
to do with perpetual motion.

Zero-point energy? Really? I seriously doubt that something that is beyond the world’s top physicists has been done by a backyard inventor.

I have seen some vidio´s on you-tube where they say they get free energie from an electric motor
yah … right then they wuold have made the eternerty machine ….....but no one have ever
been able to do that—- but there is one that looks promissing and that is the one
where you use alot of rare eath magnets in a specifik pattern again it ain´t totaly free energie
and deffently not the enternaltymachine since the magnetisme will slowly disappear over time

god luck playing with alternativ energy

Hilarious. Thanks for posting.

Their disclaimers are even funnier.

I love the threats that they will have to take down the website soon….classic

I know its just for fun – but even if the ‘perpetual motion machine’ in the video DID work, it would NOT be perpetual motion.

For the corn to grow, besides the fertiliser input from the downpipe, it uses energy from the sun, so there IS energy input.

So, Sorry! No Cigar!

Probably easier to use a photo-voltaic cell array.

Hojo = hoax.

The only thing it will do is separate you from your money.

Wow, That’s so nice of them to promise to keep the video up for 1/2 hour more so that you can buy now! That only leaves the question, when did they make this video?

What a sales pitch! “If you leave and come back, the site might be gone! So buy now! Don’t stop to think, just hand over your credit card info, quick!”

LOL
