Rubber Band Joule Thief — Pulse Motor
This is my ‘Rubber Band Joule Thief’ being used as a driver for a pulse motor. The motor part of this is operated using attraction and repulsion of permanent magnets. It is an unusual and inefficient way to turn a rotor but demonstrates the action of many so called “permanent magnet motors” shown here on YouTube. Those motors need a small amount of energy input to operate. Usually “Mr. Hand” (or some other hidden power source) is involved. Here I use my ‘RBJT’ to get the job done.
