comment Nanorobots. What stops us from producing them yet?
@DavidZaslavsky : The reason why nanotechnology isn't widespread right now has more to do with constraints in production technology and economic viability than pure physics... I think if Dokkat changes the question to learning the theory behind nanotechnology then it would be on topic.

comment Power Generation from Axial and Transverse Emf
@AnamitraPalit : I like your thought process and I think you will immensely benefit from analysis. Economics dictate that the gains of any such system must be so immense that they must justify the cost of development, manufacturing and installation. In this world it would be much cheaper for the rail company to install a battery which is charged at stations than to implement such a system. Hence in order to create a system which disrupts what exists you need to provide a clear, tangible and significant benefit, and I think that with some thought you can do just that. :-)

comment Power Generation from Axial and Transverse Emf
@AnamitraPalit : It would actually be far more efficient if you focused your efforts on increasing the efficiency of the engine. As at the end of the day what you're simply doing is extracting energy from the engine, you might as well directly work on increasing the efficiency with which the engine converts one form of energy to another to extract work. I really do admire your sense of perspective, and I would encourage you to take a look at improving our current energy conversion systems.

comment Power Generation from Axial and Transverse Emf
@AnamitraPalit : As far as using something like this for capturing tidal power goes, then I agree that it is an intriguing thought, but it's trivially easy to add a moving plate between a large array of magnets, which is essentially what most such efforts do. After all, what is a dynamo, but an abstracted form of this plate? However everything comes back to efficiency & I wager that experimentation will find the conventional method is far more efficient than using the earth's magnetic field.
