Hojo Motor Hoax


Product: Hojo Motor

Website: hojoplans.com

HoJoPlans.com is a website that offers customers access to plans that enable them to build a magnetic perpetual motion motor. The HoJo motor, as it is called, is a type of generator that uses magnetic forces to produce free electricity. The design of the Hojo Motor is based on the scientific research of Howard Johnson, an American research scientist. The website claims that the product, once assembled, could reduce electricity bills by at least 30%.

Howard Johnson was an innovative material scientist who pioneered research in the area of ‘spin transport electronics’ or ‘spintronics’ as it developed in the 1980s. Before his death in 1998, Johnson obtained 3 US patents
for a magnetic perpetual motion motor
that uses enhanced magnetic forces to generate electricity. The design of the ‘HoJo’ motor offered on the HojoPlans.com website is based on Howard Johnson’s research. Hojo Motor Plans offer purchasers an easy-to-follow manual to enable them to build their own magnetic electrical generator. Other renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and wind turbines, can be very expensive to buy and install. The Hojo Motor has the advantage of being quick and inexpensive to assemble at home.

The website claims that it is possible to build the magnetic motor using inexpensive components in less than two days. These parts should be available in any hardware store, and the simple design means that no building or engineering skills are required.

Product Plans

The Hojo Motor package contains plans and blue prints for a perpetual motion magnetic motor that produces free electricity. It also includes a simplified version of the HoJo motor that can be put together relatively quickly. The cost of component parts for the motor is estimated at under US$100.00.

What’s included?

The Hojo Motor package contains both Howard Johnson’s original plans for his magnetic motor, as well as a simplified version of the motor plans. These simplified plans, along with the shopping list of cheap components can be used to construct a Hojo Motor to produce free electricity for domestic use.


The price of the Hojo Motor package is US$49.97.

Is it a Hoax?

It is possible to find several positive reviews of this product, which claim that the magnetic motor provides free energy, however, there has been convincing criticism of the Hojo Motor, with reviewers such as Hank Mills refuting the possibility that Howard Johnson’s motor could function without further expert research and development. Mr Mills notes that Howard Johnson’s motor design was at an early stage of development when he died, and that as it currently exists the prototype would be able to produce only a tiny amount of electrical power. He therefore concludes that the Hojo Motor Plans product is useless to non-specialists.
