Latest Invention: Perpetual Motion Device that Produces Power from Gravity

Share

The latest invention of a Somerset engineer literally breaks the laws of physics. Dubbed the Alpha Omega Galaxy Freefall Generator, the device can produce free energy from perpetual motion, thus generating more power than it consumes.

Another interesting fact is that the inventor built his latest invention from bicycle parts. He also used a windscreen-washer motor. In the end the engineer obtained a machine that consists of a series of flywheels with high-powered magnets that allows it to generate power from gravity.

Although the device may seem rather heavy to be moved by the washer motor, making use of a rubber band that was cut from a bicycle inner tube, the magnets along with the special design of the flywheels allow it to move.

It would be interesting to note that the magnitude of the energy produced by the Alpha Omega Galaxy Freefall Generator is so much that if the inventor launches its commercial version (which would be the size of a standard washing machine), the machine could generate enough electricity to run a house. Hence the flywheel becomes its own source of electricity but with a slight amount of external input that is needed to turn on the machine.

The inventor will not be able to fully patent the Alpha Omega Galaxy Freefall Generator. He will only be able to patent certain parts of the machine. This is because the device claims to be a perpetual motion machine that generates more power than it uses. Thus the device breaks the first law of thermodynamics, which, in its simplest form, states that neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed. Energy can be changed, moved, controlled, stored, or dissipated, but it cannot be produced from nothing or reduced to nothing.

Dear to whoever it may concern,

Its False because,
1. It doesn't show in detail the working, such a claim would require huge scientific research to back.
2. It breaks 2nd law of thermodynamic, again even if you are breaking 1 of the fundamental laws of science, you need exponential research to support your claim.
3. It does not acknowledge friction.
4. The scientist does not give his name.
5. Though Google is flooded with info on this, everywhere it only shows the same text, no claim, no explanation, nothing.

Yeah, no. Putting aside that the whine you hear in the background is the thing spinning and not, y'know, some hidden motivator unit or other engine off-screen that makes it spin, there are a few problems with this. One, the thing is moving too fast for "gravity power." It's pretty obvious they gave the thing a spin, then started filming. If it WERE gravity power, the smaller second one would be unable to stop spinning; if someone stopped it, it's own "gravity powered" spin would start itself up again (which is point number two, by the way; perpetual motion machines don't actually stop). Point three is that this is a less-than-a-minute video that has quite clearly been edited. If they really wanted us to believe this was a perpetual motion machine, they should grab a webcam, power it by the thing's own spin, and set up a 24/7 web-broadcast surveillance. Shenanigans.

I believe perpetual motion to be possible. Gravity is providing a constant downwards acceleration, and we'd just need to find a way to bring the other side of the wheel up with less interference from it.

However, this seems like a fake. The most important invention in the world, seemingly already built too, and the biggest problem is that it uses borrowed gears? Worst. Excuse. Ever.

There is nothing in this video that in any way proves it does what they say it does. Also, the patent excuse: from the prototype, MAKE parts that aren't bicycle parts, thereby making it patentable. Custom parts circumvent the inability to patent, I think this is being used as an excuse for us never getting to see proof that this actually works.

Yeah no, that won't work. People should start studying physics instead of trying to make others believe they can cheat it.
