NATHAN COPPEDGE--Perpetual Motion Concepts

STATISTICS: Horizontal Spiral Device VOLITION: 1 OR Infinite(1 active u /1 dual-axial u) EQUILIBRIUM: 1 (1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle) EFFICIENCY: 1 OR Infinite ( 1 or Infinite Ve / 1 VE ) VOLITIONAL STATEMENT: One of the most ambiguous designs I have built, it is a design distinguished enough that it might have applications. A spiral is used to push one of two weights equilibrized over a fulcrum. Since the weight meets with little resistance due to the balance, if motion is produced it becomes perpetual. The principle of automatic spiral reset was first proven in this design, as shown in this video. |

STATISTICS: The Spiral-Drop Device VOLITION: 2(2 active u /1 dual-axial u) EQUILIBRIUM: 1 (1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle) EFFICIENCY: 2 (2 Ve / 1 VE ) VOLITIONAL STATEMENT: This is a rather ingenious concept. Since the supporting spiral moves throughout the motion of the mobile weight, the spiral's counterweight's mass-altitude gained from the vertical drop can (theoretically) be used to push the mobile weight back upwards along a gentler slope. The question is, can it reach the gentle slope, or can an early or sideways slope be introduced? If so, it may be perpetual... |

These devices remain theoretical for now. But, due to their excellence, they raise a special curiosity, if not for practical purposes, then at least for ingenuity. Spiral devices may involve vertical (up-and-down) spirals, or horizontal (flat) spirals. Additionally, the spirals may have broadness and twisting to create a greater or lesser momentum in certain positions, and outward or inward movement for strategic purposes. Spirals have emerged somewhat late in my design process. Good designs are surprisingly tricky to design, due to small nuances like whether there is a means to return a marble at all. Even Da Vinci's traditional designs often relied on fixed positions, rather than attempting to operate within actual cycles. So, to put it one way, I'm transducing all traditional methods... |

STATISTICS: Modified Horizontal Spiral VOLITION: 2(2 active u /1 dual-axial u) EQUILIBRIUM: 1 (1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle) EFFICIENCY: 2 (2 Ve / 1 VE ) VOLITIONAL STATEMENT: This device relies on gradual leverage from a pendulum to lift the base of support without lifting the opposing pendulum. The very silght lift of the base of support is then used to overcome the slight difference in altitude at the beginning point. |
