Making more efficient induction motors

I'm not sure what to make of this article I found today. A man claims that he may have unlocked the key to "free energy" or at least making induction motors more efficient.

If you want the details, read the story in the link below. But basically it says that he took his induction motor and put a very strong permanent magnet near it. The resulting magnetic field somehow caused the electric motor to start accelerating. He has demonstrated this many times to many different University physics professors and no one seems to have an answer yet as to why this happens. His most recent visit was to MIT where he is currently trying to work with some of their physics professors in solving this mystery.

So what do you guys make of all this? I know I'm excited, even if all it does is improve induction motor efficiency, it's still a step in the right direction for people.
