Oh and mattmoses, that is exactly true. The machine will eventually stop. Aside from a mechanical failure like a bearing going out or an electronic component failure, neodymium magnets lose slightly less than 1% of their "flux density" every 100 years of so. That will make the device less efficient and require more electricity to keep going. Eventually, it will drop under "unity" and eventually sputter to a stop.

But I'm okay with that. ^__^
