the following excerpt is taken from this link http://www.siemens.com/corporate-technology/en/research-cooperations/russian-research-institutes.htm

"...the researchers designed bearings in the form of extremely thin, Teflon-coated lamellae that lift up from the axle when the rotor reaches 60,000 rpm. This creates a very thin cushion of air between the bearing and the lamellae, which reduces friction losses and improves the turbine’s efficiency. The turbine then runs with zero resistance and is maintenance-free."

i figure i would try and spread the word as maybe there is some promise in this technology provided more people become enlightened.
