I am all for it! I hope that the technology solution can be shared and everyone benefit. Oftentimes we go for an easy solution instead of the harder elegant design, going the extra mile to avoid the need for rare earth materials is a great example of this in practice. I wonder how the size, cost, and performance compare to the rare materials counterparts? Any information or comparisons available?

Japanese sets the right direction. It is better to cut off the dependency of rare metal. What's your thought?
