Hojo Motor is a Scam!

The Hojo Motor is a scam.  If you purchased the Hojo Motor plans before reading this post, I'm sorry, you got scammed.  If you purchase the Hojo Motor plans after reading this post, you are dumb.  Plain and simple.  I'm sorry to use harsh words here, but sometimes it's necessary to be blunt in order to get your point across.

We've been down this path before, with the Magniwork scam.  In fact, Magniwork has been our most popular post, and has led us to post Renewable Energy Scams.  As you can see from that post, there is no shortage of scams out there trying to take advantage of the energy ignorant.

I don't care that on the web page for the Hojo plan they show some patents (see the bottom of this post for information regarding said patents) for a some kind of magnetic perpetual motion machine.  I'm not even going to get into the discussion on the laws of thermodynamics.  What I will tell you is if some kind of free energy generator was real, I would be the first person to have it.  You wouldn't hear about some free energy generator from some Google ad, you would hear about it because the President is talking about it on the world stage.  It would be the biggest breakthrough in the 21st century.  And you think you are going to buy some plans for $49.97?  (side note: ClickBank sells these plans along with many other scams, and they should be fined by the Federal Trade Commission)

Hank Mills wrote a great "Letter to Hojo Motor Plan Scammers" in which he stated:

Howard Johnson was a brilliant inventor. You got that one fact correct. However, his technologies were never fully developed, and were still very experimental when he died. Even if he was able to create motion in an experimental test rig (after hundreds or thousands of hours of work), it was not ready to power a home, an appliance, or even a very light load like a light bulb. The idea that someone could take plans for his device, and build a system capable of powering their home, is totally absurd. Unless of course, they had tens of thousands of dollars to spend, months to experiment just to make a motor self-sustain, and even more time and money to do the research and development needed to do anything practical with it.

Don't think we know what we're talking about?  Fine, buy the plans and make a fool of yourself.  For everyone else out there, focus your time on conserving energyproducing real clean energy, and living more sustainably.


Regarding the Patent Claims, below is what I received from a friend who is a patent attorney:

First, if he got a patent on this "secret" invention that was just released, then it couldn't have been secret, since getting a patent means publicly disclosing the invention.  Patents don't certify that free energy works, the patents simple certify that his magnetic motor works as a magnetic motor

Regarding the patents: I"ve pasted the first independent claim of each of the patents so you can start learning what patents really cover.  The claims are the legal bounds of the patent and define what the inventor is actually protecting.  As you will so, there is no language in any of these claims that says free energy, pertetual motion, etc.

4,151,431 patent expired in 1999.
It Claims: A permanent magnet motor comprising, in combination, a stator track defining a track direction and having first and second sides and composed of a plurality of track permanent magnets each having first and second poles of opposite polarity, said magnets being disposed in side-by-side relationship having a spacing between adjacent magnets and like poles defining said track sides, an elongated armature permanent magnet located on one of said track sides for relative movement thereto and in spaced relationship to said track side wherein an air gap exists between said armature magnet and said track magnets, said armature magnet having first and second poles of opposite polarity located at the opposite ends of said armature magnet defining the length thereof, the length of said armature magnet being disposed in a direction in general alignment with the direction of said track, the spacing of said armature magnet poles from said track associated side and the length of said armature magnet as related to the width and spacing of said track magnets in the direction of said track being such as to impose a continuous force on said armature magnet in said general direction of said track.

(THIS IS NOT CLAIMING A FREE ENERGY DEVICE, just a specific, very narrowly claimed type of motor)

4,877,983 Patent - expired in 2009
It Claims:
In combination with a movable armature, means for guiding movement of the armature along a predetermined path and a permanent armature magnet having magnetic poles of opposite polarity spaced from each other along said path to establish a magnetic field of limited extent movable with the armature and magnetic stator means for establishing a stationary magnetic flux zone along said path, the improvement comprising flux emitting surfaces of one polarity mounted on the stator means on opposite sides of said path for limiting said flux zone through which said path extends and means mounting the permanent armature magnet on the armature with the poles thereof orientated relative to said flux emitting surfaces on the stator means for unidirectionally propelling the armature along said path through the limited zone in response to magnetic interaction between the movable magnetic field and the limited flux zone, said magnetic stator means including a plurality of magnetic gate assemblies fixedly spaced from each other along said path and respectively establishing stationary magnetic fields, each of said gate assemblies including a plurality of interconnected bar magnets substantially bordering said limited flux zone exposing pole faces of opposite polarity in parallel spaced planes intersected by said path, and magnetic means connected to said interconnected bar magnets exposing one of the flux emitting surfaces of said one polarity perpendicular to said parallel planes for magnetic interaction of the stationary magnetic fields.

(AGAIN, NOT CLAIMING PERPETUAL MOTION, just a different motor configuration)

5,402,021 will expire 2015
It Claims:
A magnetic propulsion system comprising:

a vehicle having a rigidly attached magnetic armature, said magnetic armature including a first series of magnets positioned across said vehicle and extending generally from one lateral side of the vehicle to another lateral side of the vehicle, all of the magnets in said first series of magnets being generally parallel to one another;

a first magnetic wall disposed laterally adjacent said vehicle and extending longitudinally along a desired direction of vehicle travel, said first magnetic wall comprising a second series of magnets, each of the magnets in said second series having a particular size and a North-to-South axis pointing in the same direction as the desired direction of vehicle travel, each of said permanent magnets of said particular size in said second series being separated from the next successive permanent magnet in said second series by a thinner magnet, each of said thinner magnets having a pole-to-pole length which is shorter than the lateral width of said magnets of a particular size in said second series, said thinner magnets further having a North-to-South axis pointing perpendicular to the North-to-South axis of said magnets of a particular size in said second series and pointing generally toward a vehicle side of the first magnetic wall; and

a second magnetic wall disposed generally parallel to said first magnetic wall and laterally adjacent to said vehicle but opposite from said first magnetic wall, said second magnetic wall comprising a third series of magnets, each of said magnets in said third series having said particular size and a North-to-South axis pointing in an opposite direction from the desired direction of vehicle travel, each of the permanent magnets in said third series being separated from the next successive permanent magnet of said particular size in said third series by a thinner magnet, each of said thinner magnets in the second magnetic wall having a pole-to-pole length which is shorter than the lateral width of said magnets of a particular size in said third series, said thinner magnets in the second magnetic wall further having a North-to-South axis pointing in the same general direction as the North-to-South axis of the thinner magnets in the first magnetic wall;

wherein said first and second magnetic walls create magnetic fields which exert propelling forces on said armature and thereby cause the vehicle to accelerate in the desired direction of vehicle travel.

(claim and EXTREMELY narrow vehicle with some sort of magnetic propulsion motor, nothing more)

It is annoying how many people get up in arms about patents when they just take for granted what someone who is clearly also not a patent person tells them.  Always always always read the claims of the patent before making any comments about what the patent supposedly covers.

........let me's NOT AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC....period!
Chris - What do you have to say about travelling faster than the speed of light? I know a few people have mentioned it, including myself and you seem not to have anything to say about it. I would like to add that i don't believe that the hojo motor would work without serious work but there is nothing wrong with the idea, or even selling it as you can get a refund.
Hey Chris I will take some of the heat..."Never Trust Anyone" you are the last one I would trust for accurate information. Your military conspiracy theory is just your own paranoid delusions. If the military was using it, somebody would have leaked it by now. The Russians and the Chinese would have it too, because they find a way to steal everything else. Based on your use of the English language (grammar needs work) I am questioning your intellegence. People with lower intellegence are more likely to fall for something like this and also believe in conspiracy theories. If you really want to make us believers build one and give us verifiable facts. Is that asking too much? I will offer you a million dollars also and all the profits you can keep to yourself. It is a win win situation. But it is not going to happen because, number one you are afraid of your own conspiracy theory (big brother is watching) and number two it is not possible. It is available to the public you can buy the plans right now! ZZ you need work on your grammar and spelling too, so I am suspecting your intellegence too. Feel free to call me names now....
Jeff, You live in a very delusional world. Are you really that dumb to think that there is not things going on around around you and that you have no clue as to what's really going on? Also, to step in like some little worm and "take the heat for Chris" really shows you are one to seek the limelight and follow like sheep. You must be a very weak perosn and have no back bone whatsoever...basically a spineless individual that lives in a dream and thinks everything around you is ok. I can figure out your profile quite're a voted for Bush...and you believe there was WMD. Oh, and to remark on my grammer? Really? Does that place you in the intelligent arena? Does that make you a superior human being? Do you need that type of justifcation to make someone else seem like they are "small" compared to you? You may know how to phrase sentences better than I, but who gives a rats ass anyway? Did you have such a complex growing up that you had to find ways to make yourself feel adequate when you were the "whimp" that could not think on his own and had to be with the "masses" out of fear of "fitting in", being isolated? Let's now have your intelligent, mindless gibberish comeback to this post Jeff. "Take some of the heat"....for Chris? Are you serious? That was the stupidest thing I have ever read. What a moron
Oh, and Jeff! I forgot to mention. Please learn how to spell, Or use spell check. "intellegence".....Really? For someone that's questioning my INTELLIGENCE", you just showed how dumb you really are. You are quite entertaining though. Quite the joke to say the least.
"If the military was using it, somebody would have leaked it by now" Over 50,000 people worked on the atomic bomb and there was only a select few that knew what they were building...
That the Hojo site is a scam is obvious. Every time an ad tells you that you have only 30 minutes to make a decision, it is always a scam. But since there are people on this site that have some experience with magnetic forces let me run this by you: The force of a magnetic material is free in the sense that it does not require additional energy to be active. The question then is how can one transform this force into kinetic energy greater than any friction forces that are part of every movement. Has anybody read a mathematical exploration of magnetic force versus friction that would enlighten us if it is theoretically possible to do this? I would be very interested to know about it.
You caught me "Never Trust Anyone". I purposely misspelled INTELLIGENCE to see if you would catch it. Why do you think I chose that word? You must have spell checked my entire post. By the way, you are entirely wrong about my profile. My political affiliation has no effect on my decisions and I did not vote for Bush. Oh and my back is fine thank you and I have never been considered a "wimp". My post got the desired response from you though. You see hurt people hurt people. I must have struck a nerve. I don't claim to know everything and don't feel superior to most. I do know the more you learn the more you realize how little you know. With that being said I feel quite stupid. I will end this debate now, as entertaining as it has been, until you build the machine and prove once and for all that the damn thing works. I will then admit you are a better man than I am, at least on that one point. I will not return the favor by calling you a moron, because I don't believe you are one. I just believe you too don't know everything. Just like me. I hope you can find peace and quit living in fear of whoever it is you think is really in control. Peace out....
"The good man does not argue. The man who argues is no good." ( I think it was Lao Tzu who said it. I hope it hasn't lost too much in translation.) Anyways, just read the posts, and then spend your own time and money whatever way you see fit. Having said that, I think that this will be my last post on this page. My efforts will bring greater returns elsewhere.
Jeff, To touch on a few things you mentioned in your last post. Is there power or delight in playing games with people? To purposely misspell a word just for the sake to see someone react? Really? Either you're a very lonely person (I'm being nice here) or, you really did misspell "Intelligence." Also, I never really said I was going to "build a machine", or had any interest in doing so......not sure where you got that from. Besides, if the military does have things we could never imagine, so be it. It's not for us to know, nor is it our business. I am a 3 generation military person myself and understand there's things we don't, or should know that's going on "behind the curtain." My whole point here is if you don't think something is, or has been probably already has. Why be so closed minded about things you may not know? To say that "YOU KNOW FOR SURE...." is a very simple, egotistical and closed minded statement. Good day.
