Directory of designs in which magnets are oriented in such a way as to cause acceleration along a linear path. It is sometimes a precursor concept to a Directory:Magnet Motors design in which the loop is closed, resulting in rotation and usable torque.

The question in a linear accelerator is if the net acceleration is greater than the entrance/exit energy, resulting in a net energy gain. The practical question is how to embody the phenomenon in a usable mechanism. It usually is just a physical demonstration of an interesting phenomenon, with no practical value as embodied.

#### Commercial

Double Gaussian Gun - (YouTube February 04, 2007)

http://dangerouslyfun.com/gaussian-gun - This simple gaussian gun is a toy that uses magnets to shoot a ball bearing with surprising velocity.

# Place the neodymium magnets (available at K&J Magnetics) on the track and place four or five ball bearings in a line touching one side of the magnets.

# Place one more ball bearing on the opposite side of the magnets, far enough away that it isn’t pulled toward the magnets.

# When you are ready to fire it, nudge the single ball bearing so it slowing rolls toward the magnets.

# You can also set several of these up in a chain each one will fire the next with increasing speed.

Directory:Magnet Motors > Directory:Linear Magnet Accelerators > OS:Linear V-Track Magnet Accelerator by Brian Berrett - At first, this V-track video would seem to illustrate the ability of stationary magnets to perform net gain but on further testing the system is shown to have a strong gate that is only overcome by a significant gravity-powered drop.

##### Roobert33's Mechanical V-Gate Opener
Latest: Directory:Magnet Motors > Directory:Linear Magnet Accelerators > Directory: Mechanical Opener for V-Gate Magnet Motor - A video originally posed by Roobert33 shows a V-gate magnet motor that supposedly is made functional (rotation maintained) by means of a mechanical method for moving the stator magnets in and out of the way of the gate ("re-gauging") so that the gate doesn't become a lock-up point that otherwise would stop the motion of the magnet motor.

##### George Soukup's V-Track

Latest: `There was an error working with the wiki: Code[3]` - German inventor presents what appears to embody the V-track magnet accelleration model into rotating motion -- something that many have unsuccessfully attempted. What is not clear is whether his model achieves accelleration, or even constant speed. Can it handle a load? (PESWiki Sept 15, 2008)

Latest: Directory:Magnet Motors > Directory:Linear Magnet Accelerators > OS:George Soukup V-Track Rotary Magnet Motor - German inventor claims that an earlier all-magnet motor accelerated to destruction. He has filed for a German patent and plans to later openly disclose the motor. He says investors have been secured. (PESWiki June 20, 2009) (Comment at Examiner.com)

New Energy Invention - Magnetic Motor - "This video clip shows how a freestanding device can be built to generate power using nothing but natural magnetic forces, using only magnets, two plastic strips, and securing components. This is only a proof of concept video. There are many variables to be worked out, but the potential is clearly demonstrated." (Google Video Mar 26, 2008)
