MPI's 2006 End of the Year Report|

New Years Greetings!
2006 End of the Year Report
Technical progress continues…
An automated system for prototype evaluation and improvement has been completed. It is in the final stages of being debugged to get the system fully operational. This is a complex, proprietary, invention which will be the subject of a patent application. The first device tested has exceeded energy breakeven, when heat as well as electric output is included.
Over Unity (OU) is a term that reflects the claim that an invention is exceeding breakeven.
We have both solid-state and rotary devices which appear to be Over Unity from the standpoint of heat or heat plus electric production. We hope to have two validated by outside, independent labs before the end of January. These units could cut the cost of electric hot water, as well as baseboard, heating and thus, they have commercial product and license potential.
A major Silicon Valley firm is reviewing confidential information pursuant to a recently signed NDA.
We reached a settlement with a major creditor who has agreed to take stock instead of repayment.
Considerable attention is being focused on magnetic systems as a result of Steorn, an Irish firm, claiming OU, that has surfaced during this past year. We wish them luck.
With improved financial support, a self-powered, two watt, Magnetic Power Module™ is expected to be available this coming year. It would replace the battery in a laptop/phone combination currently under development by a non-profit organization for use in a developing country.
A distinguished Electrical Engineer, is designing the laptop. He has also agreed to consult with MPI. He was head of the Homebrew Computer Club in Silicon Valley, which spawned Apple and several other well known firms. He designed the first portable computer, which is now in the Smithsonian Institution.
A follow-on product will be a battery replacement for a laptop that requires only 12 watts of power. That computer is widely sold by a major retailer. As power levels increase, other laptop and desktop computers will be targeted for self-sustaining Magnetic Power Modules. Three candidate systems are in early stages of development.
A parallel project involves self-powered rotary Demonstration Devices that light a few LEDs and turn a small fan. Three candidates are Over Unity and we hope to have that fact validated during the first quarter of the New Year. Toys are expected to follow. No batteries required.
The next, major goal is to have 1 kW solid-state Magnetic Power Modules licensed and in production as rapidly as proves practical.
Two such Modules might replace the plug, in a plug-in hybrid conversion kit now on the market. The package of Lithium-ion batteries is equipped with a power supply that draws 1.8 kW from a wall socket. Eliminating the plug, in a prototype designed for demonstration to the world’s car manufacturers, might allow at least 30 miles of fuel-free driving.
Our Northwestern facility is continuing work toward the conversion of 3 phase transformers into self-powered, solid-state, generators, with eventually half of their rated output as transformers. Earlier thought to be the fast-track to commercial production, at least two other technologies might be in production even more rapidly. Some of these newer designs can be licensed and produced by any number of electronics manufacturers.
Below is an updated History of Magnetic Power. The irony is that if the work of Wesley Gary, first demonstrated in 1874, which our computer simulation indicates was valid, had been commercialized, the world might never have needed oil to run cars!
Many of the achievements described for next year have been delayed from previous optimistic projections. The lack of working capital continues to delay our efforts, with engineers and administrative personnel accruing the majority of their income in order to keep our minimal progress measurable. There are no assurances that the schedules we are hoping for can be achieved, as their realization is dependant upon funding.
May the New Year be a happy and prosperous one for you, your friends and family, and may it see the sharp acceleration of practical magnetic systems that might reduce the need for fossil fuels and slow Global Warming.

Significant Dates in the History of Fuel-Free
1874 Wesley Gary, of Pennsylvania, demonstrates the world’s first self-powered magnetic motor.
1877 U.S. Patent #290,206 is issued to Gary for his magnetic motor.
1879 A second U.S., and a Canadian, Patent issue to Gary for a redesigned motor.
1879 A comprehensive article about Gary’s inventions appears in Harpers Magazine.
1887 Nikola Tesla is awarded a U.S. Patent reflecting his invention of Alternating Current motors and generators. His work initiates electric power throughout the world.
1925 Hans Coler, a German inventor, demonstrates a 10 watt magnetic generator without moving parts.
1927 Werner Heisenberg, a physicist awarded the Nobel Prize, states: “I believe it is possible to utilize magnetism as an energy source.”
1937 Coler demonstrates a second type of solid-state generator that with a battery input of a few watts generates 6 kW indefinitely. Hitler’s Admiralty later supports his research .
1945 Coler’s laboratory is destroyed by an Allied bomb. However, he survives, and later cooperates with an inquiry by British Intelligence.
1946 The British Intelligence Report, which may have been 200 pages in length, was issued. At least 34 pages were declassified in 1979, and are readily available on the web. The Report confirms that the Coler achievement was genuine.
1984 Magnetic Power Inc. is established and begins evaluating claims regarding magnetic generators.
1987 MPI is incorporated in California.
1992 A four member MPI team visits Moscow to examine claims of a possible room temperature superconductor.
1993 Confirmation of the Russian research results in formation of an MPI subsidiary, Room Temperature Superconductors Inc..
1995 MPI is awarded a United States Air Force Contract to evaluate applications of the polymer superconductors.
1996 MPI is awarded a larger, Phase II, follow-on Contract, by the USAF to expand the evaluation.
1998 RTS is awarded U.S. Patent #5,777,292, the first of three U.S. Patents covering the polymer superconductors. Equivalents are pending worldwide.
1997-98 RTS is awarded two more Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research Contracts for the polymers. The firm begins to use the trademark “Ultraconductors” to describe these unique materials.
2003 RTS files a patent application with 195 Claims. This application has now been published by the USPTO. Patent Counsel suggests dividing it into at least five additional patents.
2003 MPI begins a program to commercialize self-powered magnetic generators. A unique engineering team is formed.
2003 RTS is awarded U.S. Patent #6,552,883.
2004 RTS is awarded U.S. Patent #6,804,105.
2004 An MPI solid-state generator first demonstrates over-unity performance. Generator patent program is initiated. A solid-state laboratory is established to accelerate this work.
2005 Over-unity is achieved in a rotary system. This opens a path to a future self-powered Demonstration Device.
2007 MPI, and possibly a few other firms, plan to license production of magnetic devices. MPI’s proprietary products include solid-state Magnetic Power Modules.
