Sorcery: Video Compilation Of Perpetual Motion Machines

December 11, 2014


These are two videos showcasing numerous designs of perpetual motion machines throughout history. They were all fascinating to watch, particularly the ones in the second video (featuring more modern machines). Unfortunately, perpetual motion machines are impossible to develop without breaking the first and second laws of thermodynamics, which, unlike drunk in public laws, are much, much harder to break. Which is exactly why we need to capture an alien AND BEAT THE TECHNOLOGY OUT OF THEM. We had a chance with E.T., but noooooooo, that little jerk with the sweet bike helped him escape.

Keep going for the videos, then get out there and design your own perpetual motion machine! Oooooor open a new tab and watch p0rno.

Thanks to kingdesofmuff, who agrees GIFs are the only true perpetual motion machines.

  • My recent Twitter post about perpetual motion may prove significant if you really read it...

  • Nathan Coppedge's Perpetual Motion Machine Designs & Theory is available as a book, and is also present online at: http://www.nathancoppedge.c...

  • Those investigating perpetual motion principles would do well to visit my Youtube channel:

    That second video is just ridiculous: my kids do more convincing cons out of lego!

  • Bad Habit

    Ahhh, someone who slept through the "Moment of Inertia" portion of their education in science.

    Sucks to be dumber than a 5th grader, Matt.

  • Matt

    I want to believe that you're just trolling! :)
    All these are ridiculous and none would fool even the thickest of 5th grader (whose intelligence may or may not favorably compare to mine!)

    So "Perpetual Motion Machines" could also be accurately called "Force of Gravity-Harvesting Machines"? That's what all of these look like. Very interesting...

  • Cameron Shane

    You can't really harvest gravity, it's a field, you're simply changing energy states when you move through a field. Everything in the video is a "low friction" system. Eventually they come to a rest, the only energy put into the machines is the initial push that gets them going. Another example of an energy field is a magnet, the force that you perceive when it pulls something against it must be returned to pull them apart.

    When you see the "force of gravity" act upon an object you are really witnessing the conversion of potential energy into kinetic energy. The object ends up in a lower energy state relative to its starting position.

  • A set of balancing scales can equilibrize without expending energy, at least if you view it in terms of average mass altitude. The same principle applies to equilibrization between levers and counterweights. If a mobile weight is used as an alternator between lever application and recovered motion, in theory (in some rather restricted cases) energy is recoverable. Other examples may exist as well, as I have endeavored to prove at my website.

    The worst thing is that I have seem patents for this kind of stuff. And there is a Soya baron who really is spending a lot of money to make a huge mechanical perpetual motion machine to generate infinite energy.

  • Grob

    so why isn't this true perpetual motion? i mean, how long do these go on for until they're stopped by friction or whatever

    my Aunty Piper got a stunning white Mitsubishi Galant by working off of a macbook air... you could look here

  • TempUserName4

    A second reply: That water one in the first video is absolute bullshit. You can try it yourself at home to see how it works out (it doesn't... they are hiding a pump).

  • n11

    Some pretty neat stuff there. Amazing that 800 years later we're still fasinated by these contraptions.

  • The_Wretched

    Partly because some folks keep too open a mind.
