This man was brilliant. It is nothing more than a travesty, shame, and absoloute ignorance from the British and worldwide establishment to turn their backs on this man, when he developed the gyro. He gave so much to the world of science, physics, mathematics, engineering, etc. and the disrespect he received was (and still is) nothing short of a travesty.

Absolutely one of the best videos on youtube.ย  So instructional and entertaining. Not only is what he showing visually astounding, but his explanation is perfect for anyone at any level.ย  This would be a godsend for a science teacher. (which I am).

This brilliant pioneering work on magnetic rivers is what is behind the 350km/hr maglev trains we now see in China.

This is a small part of so much British engineering that was largely discarded in the 1980's for money creating scams and north sea oil money.

Wow i wish i had a teacher like this when i was in school. Great demonstrations.

Good ol' Barry...always the diligent assistant in Eric's demonstrations.

While the transport application of this technology is taking its time getting here, linear motors are used in many applications already. Professor Laithwaite was not only a brilliant teacher and engineer, but he's also the guy that actually built the first practical model of a linear motor. I guess that pretty well qualifies him to present this lecture.

So cool how we can listen to our ancestors explain their discoveries image a video with Tesla explaining. God rest your Genius soul Ericย

"Light doesn't travel." - Walter Russell The illusion of observation of the waves traveling at 10:50 in this clip is similar to what Walter Russell talks about Light. Take note that Eric Laithwaite didn't really get involved with magnets or gyroscopes until he met with Professor John Searl. Eric's friend attended Searl's lectures and demos then told Eric about it. Eric didn't believe his friend until he met with John Searl himself. Then Eric developed the Mag-Lev and these video segments.

Such a shame this technology hasn't yet found its place in everyday transportation. Huge respect for Mr Laithwaite and his work.

Wow since 1975 someone had figured out this technology and look how long its taken to implement it. Magnets are the answer to the future.

this guy knows magnets!

An insight or eye opener, to the EVGRAY forum membership and many thanks to Josephine Seyer for posting it to US.

has any one tried putting ferrofuid into a travellimg field?

The magnetism is normal. It is just the general perception of magnetism that is incorrect.
