Perpetual Motion Machine

No.  That’s an animation.

Maybe it’s a potentially perpetually moving animation?

No it stops after about 6 seconds, then you have to manually restart it.

Much like the real thing, I imagine.

Here’s a “Channel 4” short film about Charles Redheffer’s 1812 scam perpetual motion machine...

I always get a kick out of these PM machine diagrams that include a brake lever!

I racked my brain for several years trying to decide if Johann Bessler was a fraud. One day my 8 year old (at the time) daughter took an overbalanced wheel drawing that she was looking at on my desk and turned it upside down, telling me “this will work”. Humoring her, I put together a two-weight version after figuring out the mechanism needed to make the real-world weights do what the inverted drawing depicted. After trying it I scanned the drawing and sent it for verification to a friend in Australia who is adept in machining and mechanics.

The drawing and results were placed in public domain on purpose; knowledge of this simple device should never be owned by any one person or entity. They can be found by Yahoo searching “Grim and Smithy’s wheel”

As smart and advanced as DaVinci was, why he never tried this is unknown. My daughter (now 12) scares me.

You are welcome to build the model and prove it to yourselves.

So you’ve solved the world’s energy crisis all at once?  I’m sure your name will go down in history as one of the greatest minds of all time. 

Of course since neither a Yahoo nor Google search actually turns anything up, save for one post in Yahoo Answers, I think I’ll hold off on my accolades.

That’s nothing! My 5-year-old has discovered a way to fly (shown below)...

Since most people are strong enough to lift about their own weight, you just pull on the conveniently placed handles until you succeed in raising your feet off the ground. Then you just pull a bit harder to go up, or relax a little to go back down.

Like overbalancing wheels, it takes someone with the mind of a child to think of these things!

David, your last post and this one:

Both made me laugh out loud in my office.

You jerk!

Irish firm’s display of ‘free-energy’ machine delayed.

Thursday, July 05, 2007

By Gary Fennelly

Technology developed by an Irish company that allegedly defies the laws of physics to produce free power is to go on public display for the first time.


Dublin-based Steorn claims to have developed free energy technology called Orbo which could power everything from vehicles to mobile phones.

Steorn planned to show Orbo at an exhibition today at the Kinetica Museum in London. However this has been delayed due to “technical difficulties”.  A statement on their website blames “intense heat from the camera lighting”.

It is claimed the Orbo will perpetually spin in a clear polycarbonate wheel with absolutely no supply of external energy or power unit attached.

In August of last year the firm challenged the world’s scientific community to give its verdict on technology in full page ad in the Economist. They claim the device smashes the laws of physics by creating ” free energy.”

Steorn’s chief executive, Sean McCarthy, insisted that scientists have looked at the invention and said that it works.

“What we have developed is a way to construct magnetic fields so that when you travel round the magnetic fields, starting and stopping at the same position, you have gained energy ,” he said.

“The energy isn’t being converted from any other source such as the energy within the magnet. It’s literally created. Once the technology operates, it provides a constant stream of clean energy.”

What are they waiting for?

I ran this through the Transfrmr-Lator

Wow, just moments away from solving the world’s energy problems! Awesome!
