Davao inventor introduces Maglev solution for heavy traffic

In Davao City, a man named Jose Guardo Jr., developed a new magnetic levitation (Maglev) system that could pave the way to better transit solutions. According to Sun Star Davao, it will be the third Maglev system after Germany and Japan.

Guardo’s invertion works using the gyroscopic spin induced Lenz’s law. “It uses a permanent magnet that is twisted, then returned to the conductor (can be aluminum or copper), and then refilled, causing the train to levitate.”, the local news source said. This method is different from Japan and Germany.

Their team is currently looking for potential investors to make the project come to life and the national goverment, through Department of Science and Technology-Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), is willing to help and finance Guardo’s vision.

A test trail and an incubation center will be constructed, to be shared with other inventors, once funding pushed through.

    Naku gawin muna nila sa Davao bago sa kamay manilaan. Ang government natin takot sa mga ganyan at hinaharang nila ng mga nakakataas ng management ng MRT at LRT. Buti pa ang Davao people nakakaisip ng mga ganito. Gud luck, Binta niyo na lang sa ibang bansa yan may kwenta pa yung pagod niyo.

      May pessimists like you be accursed and contained in a desolate island. Changed your name to ‘HOPELESS’ or ‘CLUELESS’. Begone!!

      “Buti pa ang Davao people nakakaisip ng mga ganito”. I do think that Filipinos from across the archipelago are thinking of improving the Transpo system, not just the Davaoenos.

      *”Benta” not “Binta”.

    As simple as existing MRT will do. Kaya lang ang iksi ng mrt natin.kung naka punta kau singapore, mrt nila dun halos d mo na makita yung dulo sa haba ng train.

    hahah asa pa kayo… kunwari lang sabi susuportahan yan ng gobyerno… aminin nyo sa mga sarili nyong walang kwenta ang gobyerno natin… hiyang hiya na ako sa nangyayari sa bansa natin infact parang nagiging proud na nga ako sa kabalbalan ng mga opisyal… puputi na ang uwak wala pang ngayyare sa project na yan.. hahah

    I do hope they test the prototype in Davao first. It would be an ideal city to test it out for two reasons:
    1) Davao still does not have a train system.
    2) Davao is a very big city, in terms of area.

    I wish him all the best in getting his invention off the ground in more ways than one.

    Kickstarter na lang natin ‘yan para mabilis. Hehehe.

    palagay ko di pa rin maiibsan traffic kung sakaling gumamit man ng ganyang tren. Mas mainam pa na kalsada na mismo ang patakbuhin, parang conveyor baga he he he

  8. Roni says:

    Dapat may pang lagay sila if they want the government to adapt their invention. Wayang lagay wayang project.

  9. this claimed to be a new way of making a maglev. So it needs evidence that it works. A scale model will go a long way to make the critics happy.

    Next you need feasability studies to prove that its better than a maglev or better than a normal train.

  10. Idiot says:

    Maglev are meant to be fast…so meaning it has to tavel long distances before making any stops.

  11. wew says:

    This news lacks information, and essence.

    First of all, is this “concept” feasible in a larger scale? Well, this can be proved by having a feasibility study. But the most important question is, WHY? I mean, why this type of design over the other maglev design systems? Is his design more efficient, low cost, etc.?

  12. just sayin' says:

    kahit ano pang transportation system ang gawin ng kung sinong inventor, kung dumadami pa din ang tao sa metro manila eh wala pa din. magiging band aid fix lang yan. ang long term solution eh ikalat ang trabaho sa ibang parte ng bansa para yung mga nasa north or south ay di na kailangan pang magpunta ng metro manila para lang magkaroon ng maayos na trabaho.

    pero syempre, di yan gagawin ng mga pulpolitiko dahil mababawasan yung pwede nilang makurakot.

    Yan maglev tech maganda lang yan sa long travel. Kung maglalagay sila ng railsystem sa metro, maganda subway na
