Throughout history, there have been many brilliant minds who have tried to devise solutions to make the world a better place. Nikola Tesla was one of those men whose goals were favorable to humanity. Then there’s the story of Baltimore engineer Otis T. Carr, who truly believed in Tesla’s concept of free energy. But at the current stage, a brilliant mind much ignored is the inventor John Searl, who would have built his own “flying machine” (anti-gravity) and developed a mechanism to generate clean energy based on “perpetual motion”.
John Roy Robert Searl was born in Wantage, England, on May 2, 1932. From 1946 to 1956, Searl claimed to have invented and built a device called the “Searl Effect Generator” (SEG), allegedly an antigravity device. and perpetual motion device.
For over 60 years, Searl had been trying to provide humanity with his free energy engine in order to rid the world of carbon-emitting fuel. He was an apprentice employee at BR Rewinds in Grays Inn Road, London. There he obtained permission to use the company’s facilities and technical resources to manufacture the device. He claimed that in December 1946, with all magnetic components manufactured to his specifications, he assembled the generator at his residence at 30 Crawley Rd, Haringey, London, UK.
Early prototypes worked to produce electricity, but unexpectedly generated an extremely high voltage along with gravitomagnetism, after which the early devices were drastically lost during testing due to a strong antigravity effect. Unfortunately, there is no independent verification of these claims.
Searl Effect Generator
The Searl Effect Generator (SEG) works along the principles of a linear induction motor (LIM), but is designed around a circular track for continuous motion of moving rotors. It is an electromagnetic multiphase cylindrical roller magnetic drive on fixed stator rings and free from any mechanical wear or friction.
The Searl generator is made of rare earth elements (neodymium) and has a complex structure. The multiplication of energy occurs due to the structure of the magnetic field produced by the moving elements. A specially shaped magnetic field is the tool which is the connecting element in the motor operation. This is one of the main components.

Unlike the physically tangible blocks of any other motor, the magnetic field is an easier and more subtle way to organize the motor. This makes the device work much more efficiently and produces unusual effects.
From 1946 to 1968, the Searl Effect was referred to as moving magnetic bubbles, as explained in Searl’s early newsletters. By 1968, it became clear that these magnetic bubbles contained particles in a definite way and that there was a definite pattern to how many bubbles were present in the material.
Because of this discovery, Searl dropped the term ‘magnetic bubbles’ and replaced it with the term ‘magnetic quantum material’ and disclosed these details in a newsletter that was reproduced in one of Searl’s books.
A lab test also agrees that the material somehow changes its state when produced in this way. When the rollers are brought close to the SEG plate, the SEG resonant magnetic field causes electrons to be attracted and accelerated by the machine. This process is aided by the high attraction or electron capture effect of the neodymium layer. The SEG’s unique mechanical and material arrangement pulses the neodymium to continuously release and replace excess electrons that provide mechanical and electrical energy. The demo can be seen in the video below.
In addition to the exciting development of free energy generators and electric motors, Searl created the Inverse Gravity Vehicle (IGV). Utilizing SEG technology, the IGV is a spacecraft with the ability to lift and defy the force of gravity, a flying machine that absorbs and converts energy from the surrounding environment as it flies through the air.
Is the Searl Effect a fact or a hoax?
In the mid-1990s, Russian researchers Vladimir Roshchin and Serge Godin built and tested a version of Searl’s disk they called the Magnetic Energy Converter, or MEC. 49 Its prototype was 1 meter in diameter and was equipped with a starter motor and brake system. [Source]
Their tests indicated that when the rotor speed exceeded about 200 rpm, the MEC started to partially feed itself, its drive motor consuming less energy. When the rotor accelerated to 550 rpm, the starter no longer drew current and instead began generating output power, producing 7 kilowatts at a rotor speed of 595 rpm.
They also observed that the rotor began to lose weight when its speed exceeded 550 rpm. At 595 rpm, it was observed that the weight of the entire apparatus lost 35% of its weight. The device has not been tested at speeds greater than 595 rpm for fear of pushing the limits of its mechanical design. Its initial prototype is no longer available, having been stolen. But they are currently building the second version in a laboratory in Moscow.
According to the story published in The Times on November 26, 1982, titled “Electricity Thief Risked Southern Blackout,” Searl was convicted of stealing electricity by bypassing the electricity meter and damaging the property of the electricity company. He then became involved in a vendetta against the electricity company.
Since then, Searl said he and his colleagues have built more than 50 versions of their “flip-flop,” of various sizes, and learned to control them. He claims that persecution by the authorities resulted in wrongful arrest and the destruction of most of his work, so he had to start all over again. He claims that in the early 1970s, one of his ships went around the world several times without being detected.
Unfortunately, due to the lack of scientific and physical evidence, its invention is considered vague by many people. Furthermore, the existence of perpetual motion machines is, in principle, ruled out by the first law of thermodynamics.
