Hey, this is a great 1 minute long video showing you how to make a homopolar motor using just one AA batter, a copper wire and a magnet. ENJOY!

Wow, that's a cool idea. I think I'm going to incorporate this into my RC flier idea (a project my school is doing with NASA). My group decided to build a remote controlled flier. It would be awesome if we could build everything from scratch--even the motor!
