Although numerous models of aerial-robots/drones and planet landers have been demonstrated to fly autonomously in natural and manmade environments for far-reaching scientific and technological change to help humankind, no drone flowed yet with a push-pull dual-head electromagnetic propulsion (EMP) system ensuring unrestricted flight endurance. The precept of EMP is eminent as it hastens an object using a flowing electrical current, either to charge a field or opposing a magnetic field for locomotive use. Here we present a proof of concept to demonstrate the capability of a newly invented variable speed propulsion and energy conversion system for uninterruptedly generating the reciprocating motion of a magnetic piston by a solar battery-driven polarity changer timing circuit together with a laser-based timing circuit for redundancy. The reciprocating crusade of the magnetic piston could be successfully converted into rotary motion to generate continuous power for various multidisciplinary applications on Earth and the other planets effectively in lieu of long-lasting rechargeable batteries. The proposed concept can also be used for devising various systems and subsystems from underwater to outer space by using light weight supermalloy, which ensures high magnetic fluxes with relatively low current. Lucrative applications include nanomaterial-enabled locomotive applications. Aerial robots regulated with the EMP system could be used for fostering pharmaceutical florae in the international space station for drug design to negate the recently discovered phenomenon of Sanal flow choking in cardiovascular system at gravity and/or microgravity conditions. This concept is originated from mind and aimed for lucrative product developments of yocto to yotta scale energy systems and beyond by discovering new magnetic materials through the fourth industrial revolution. Herein, a proof of the concept of an unrestricted solar-battery driven push-pull electromagnetic propulsion and energy conversion device by use of light weight high power magnetic materials is presented.
