If it was a commercially viable engine it would have been taken up by someone. Maybe it couldn't get enough power to make it useful.

if it is true! Which I doubt. Any resistance other than air would stop it.
Must have been demonstrated on the 1st April before lunchtime!

As well as being a prior investment fraudster and not allowing any scientific review, the guy has rewritten the laws of physics. Amazing!

Our old BMtroubleu (BMW) d7 diesel had a magnito alternator. Which failed after 10 years use. We replaced it with a motor cycle copy which worked for a year or so before failing. I liked the concept no belts or pulleys but I guess the magnets didn't agree with the marine environment.

a small one would be a great bilge pump no power needed and if you bilges start filling up the pump would start automatically

Magnetic fields are conservative fields and because of this, permanent magnets cannot be used to drive a motor. Unless you can somehow change the way the universe works. (Yes, I am a physicist and consequently a man of little 'faith')

Provided that you have a good supply of compressed air readily available.
