CAS技術の進化 | ABI 株式会社アビー
Freezer using high powered magnets to vibrate water in cells which are supercooled, keeping them liquid. Drop the magnetic field, and the water flash freezes with low crystallization, reducing damage to cells. Good for stem cell freezing, and also makes frozen food taste less mushy because the cells aren't destroyed.

Uses an oddball printed circuit board (PCB) based design for a super lightweight (fixed?) stator for the generator (I think the permanent magnet mounted rotor is the outer part of the torus). Definitely a weird direct drive permanent magnet configuration.

Welcome to Equipmake
Apparently patented a new spoke magnet motor that is 50% of the volume and 80% of the mass of conventional motors with superior hub/rotor cooling, and can get to 9kW/kg for amazing power density (Launchpoint was in the 5 range). Also involved in making a microturbine range extender connected power generator for a supercar.

apparently they have a magnet system that directly stimulates water in cells to prevent ice crystal formation when supercooling, which is then suddenly turned off to create a flash freezing effect that reduces damage to food/tissue/meat from the freezing process.

Magnetal - Advanced Technology for Magnetic Bearings
Interesting, but a little sketchy. It seems to be a properly integrated Halbach array magnet being using for magnetic levitation in a bearing, with some self correcting fores that are useful, but aren't Halbach arrays by definition a drag device that has to be overcome by other forces? Can the drag really be superior to classical magnetic bearings? Or perhaps not, but simplicity of manufacturing means it may be the cheaper choice in the realm of magnetic bearings. But maximum bearing force capacity (lift capability of a Halbach array) is kinda limited usually, right?

"Wind Lens" Turbines Could Boost Energy Generation 3X | Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World
The implication here is that at larger sizes, it may be advantageous to integrate the generator directly into the rim diffuser structure, probably as a permanent magnet, transforming it into a hubless turbine type.

Levitating Magnet May Yield New Approach To Clean Energy
I'm a little stumped as to how the floating magnet is supposed to control things when it is floating via a rather large externally applied magnetic field. I guess there must be some field orientation advantage compared to simply applying a larger field from outside. I wonder if this could be applied to SMES or other cryogenic systems to remove the supports that contribute to heat leakage?
