ABOVE: A mock-up of the sideways leverage device, a failed principle.
I did some testing with the fixed and
mobile track concept from Design 8;
certainly fluid movements are
possible; the question is if the weight
differential is significant enough for
continuous motion
The central
"tongue" pictured
here is supposed to
be a fixed element;
I had to hold it with
my hand
In the same experiment
design I found that
sometimes with
approximately balanced
conditions, the tongue
element was more effective
for movement than having
the tongue removed.

Somewhat promising,
considering the design is
meant to function with a
heavier than average ball
weight, not a very small
marble; I have found a
pattern that larger
structures are more
predictable, and better off
when there is an advantage
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The outside
surface is a
lever---
I try to
predict the
unpredict-able
LEFT: In this experiment, conducted
using similar construction to cardboard
unit above, and also using a marble as a
ball-weight, I successfully demonstrated
that
a marble can return to a greater
altitude while retaining downwards
momentum at start of process
; So far
however, it appears that the operated
lever must return to a greater altitude,
However, there is a possible operable
version of this in Repeat Lever Type 12::
ABOVE: An experiment using a variation on the
trough lever [photographed 10/2015]. This
device is theorized to work if it is built properly.

LEFT: AN EARLIER
EXPERIMENT
PROVING THAT A
WEIGHT COULD BE
LIFTED WITH A
LIGHTER WEIGHT
WHEN SUPPORTED
(NO CHEATING
INVOLVED).

DEMONSTRATED WHAT I TAKE TO BE
POSSIBLE OVER-UNITY PROPERTIES, BY
SPINNING 360 DEGREES OR MORE AFTER A
HARD 180-DEGREE TWIST
