I would prefer a smaller energy supply that could just run the refrigerator off the grid. This alone would make millions. Several redundant power sources would be more reliable than one big one. But, this is as elusive as the pea under Pop's shells.

Meanwhile we should support hemp bio-diesel as the next carbon friendly fuel source.

Just sayin, it's real!

If "perpetual motion" means something works without energy and can even overcome resistive forces like friction, then it is impossible. But if all we want to do is make it work, it might be possible. It can't work without energy, of course, but if we used resources that are already here and not likely to stop in our lifetime (gravity, wind, sunlight, the Earth's rotation, tides, etc.) for all practical purposes I suspect we could make a machine that acts like a perpetual motion machine.

A little creative fun with Bhaskara's wheel and an overbalanced chain ;-)

The link isn't actually a spoiler as far as I can tell. It explains why the two examples can't work but doesn't explain why they both 'appear' to work!

Daffy Doug has not been back. I'm not laughing. You make something like this? They will shut you DOWN! Google Wilhelm Reich. "Nuff said.

Yeah, I made one once. They paid me a ton of money to keep quite which is why all my time is spent here now. Smile

Can't blame him. I'd be insulted by some of the comments here. He wasn't playin'. He really thought he had a device here! And who freakin' knows? It was ridiculous to think we could fly an airplane at one time!

I never laugh at someone sincerely studying ways to advance tech! No matter how ridiculous it might sound...

A few more impossible machines from the same creative guy.

I suspect he was also paid off to keep quiet which is why he now stays away from this topic.

They use motors to create the illusion of perpetual motion. From the sights webpage:

"Perpetual Motion Machines

The term perpetual motion, taken literally, refers to movement that goes on forever. However, perpetual motion usually refers to a device or system that delivers more energy than was put into it. Such a device or system would be in violation of the law of Conservation of Energy, which states that energy can never be created or destroyed, and is therefore deemed impossible by the laws of physics. Our working models assist us to better explain the impossibility of Perpetual Motion. It's excellent tool to discuss first and second Laws of Thermodynamics, Hydrostatic equilibrium Law, Law of Gravity, efficiency, friction,...

Please, be advised:
These Videos are of motorized versions that were built to illustrate how these machines were supposed to work in the minds of Inventors."

I actually think it is kind of cool that the guy at veproject1 took the time to build all of these "working" perpetual motion machines. That's a specialized level of nerdiness I admire.

Ok, so it's wind driven. It's still pretty awesome.
