I think I saw a description once.
One of the guitar pickups is run "in reverse".
i.e. the amplified guitar signal is sent to the pick-up, which 
vibrates the string.

I don't know if you need a special pickup for this, but certainly 
some regular pickups would burn out rather quickly.

If that's right, it would be a fixed position ebow.
