The Electromagnetic Drive is a system for electrically propelling a bicycle or other vehicle by placing permanent magnets on the rim of the wheel or wheels, and having one or more electromagnets placed adjacent to them to drive the wheel. A working geometry is provided between an electromagnet and permanent magnet, which allows for electrically driving the wheel of a vehicle such as a bicycle with enough power to eliminate pedaling. A sensor unit senses the positions of the magnets relative to the electromagnets, and applies appropriately timed pulses of electricity to a interface. The interface amplifies the pulses from the sensor and inputs them into the electromagnets. Permanent magnets mounted on the wheel create a high efficiency force between the electromagnets and the permanent magnets. Because of the light weight, it adds little extra effort for the bicyclist when the drive mechanism is not engaged. As a supplemental feature, circuitry is provided for recharging batte
ries, while the bicycle is coasting down hill or stopping.

No pictures, no videos, and tucked in among such gems as the
"Ion Propelled Model Aircraft".

Sounds like the stuff I used to see advertised in the backs
of my comic books when I was a kid, alongside the "X-Ray Specs".

Except even the comic books at least had pictures.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The bicycle propulsion system could actually be built--the engineering
concepts are all in current use. But. if you send $10 for a set of plans, I
am sure you will receive something that never ends up on a
bicycle--sophisticated technology that is not doable by any but a high level
shop or laboratory. I question their claim that the system would only
slightly increase the weight of the bicycle. Don't they know what batteries
weigh?

If you visit their website, you encounter a string of ideas, each one
weirder and less practical than the one before. At $10 each. No thank you.

Sounds better used as a generator, than a motor!
