Engines are the machines that power our world. Designs and concepts that have been developed and refined for hundreds of years. Interpreted and improved generation after generation to the point that we now we have the internal decompression engine made of nothing more than paper, along with hours of toil, sweet and imagination.

Constructed from nothing more than paper, cardboard, sticky tape, paper clips and super glue Aliaksei Zholner has managed to adapt the designs of a working V6 engine to create one stunning piece of paper craft. Running on breath stored in a balloon the engine spins to life when the compressed air in the balloon is fed through the cylinders.

Permanent Magnetic Motors, the Coolest Engines that Don’t Require Fuel…

Making use of the force of permanent magnets has been a curious human pastime ever since the discovery of naturally occurring Lodestones 2,500 years ago.

The availability of modern super strong Neodymium magnets and fertile imaginations has led to many unusual motors powered by permanent magnets alone, requiring no fuel or external energy to work. Who knew an iron marble could be the future of power generation!?

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the most dazzling and almost hypnotic example of magnetic motion, and other creative ways of applying magnetic effects. Sit back, relax and hit the play button to begin relearning everything you thought you knew about magnets and engines.
