 TILT MOTOR PERPETUAL MOTION CONCEPTA Perpetual Motion Machine Concept Using aRolling Cone Set on a Circular Pivoting TrackTaken from my blog entry on the subject:We all know that if you push a coffee cup it rolls in circles. It seemed to me that so long as that rolling could be used to provide a constant slope, the rolling might continue and continue. The result is a new perpetual motion concept: The Tilt-Motor. (Should I call it God's Rolling Pin?) Click here to skip to the diagrams.It consists of a weighted cone shaped (approximately) like a coffee cup that may be made to spin along a track around a vertical axis. Along the outside perimeter of the track are eight pressure plates, each attached to the long end of a lever.The short end of each lever has a "wicket" attached, which allows one of the earlier levers to pass through without being obstructed. When the long end of the lever is activated by the weight of the rolling cone, leverage actsunderneath the track through the wicket positioned 90 degrees behind the cone. Since the track is made in such a way that it pivots downward wherever the cone is rolling, the point 90 degrees behind the cone is always sloped towards the cone. By pushing upward at precisely that point, it may be possible to raise that portion of the track, thus extending the range of theslope.The intention then is to keep the cone rolling around the track, since it is continually activating a pressure plate that shifts the tilt towards a point just ahead of the cone. When it rolls to that point it would then theoretically activate another pressure plate, causing the tilt to shift once more. The system is efficient because the entire force utilized is the weight of the cone,which is otherwise supported by the track. The weight contributes to leverage which acts not directly underneath the cone, but 90 degrees behind it, a point that is much easier to lift. Since very little slope is necessary to keep a round thing rolling, the leverage may be sufficient to create continuous motion.Because the keys or pressure plates are only weighted when the cone rolls over them (since the track is not positioned directly over them, but rather over the wickets on the other end of the levers) the cone meets little resistance in one direction--simply having to lift the non-operating keys--yet considerable resistance in the other direction from the leverage acting through the activated pressure plate.Note that the inner track is separate from the pressure plates, and even from the wickets (just above them), so that it is actually unnecessary to adjust the sizes of the wickets to accommodate lean and skew. It could be built in such a way that the lowest point of swivel for the track allows the current pressure plate to be fully activated, with the highest point of the corresponding wicket--when the lever is activated--being slightly higher than the height of the track at 90 degrees behind the activated pressure plate.This actually means that the point of the track 90 degrees ahead of the activated pressure plate is lowest, since the wicket opposite that point is the highest. In this way the rolling cone is always approximately in the middle of the slope, according to theory. Since theoretically the slope begins 90 degreebehind the cone, there is no need for the cone to ever reach the lowest point of the track, so long as the current location is sloped downward.The best way to implement this is to raise the average height of the track to the extent that the cone is rolling at the point when it fully depresses the pressure plate. If that pressure is sufficient to shift the point of slope, then the process might continue.This might be possible because the size of the rolling cone permits the keys to be raised above the lowest point of the track. If the transition from one pressure plate "step" to another is not completely smooth, then size of the outer end of the cone would accommodate for this, the way large wheels can handle small bumps.With 66% levers as depicted, there is a 1/2 transfer of distance, so that 2 inches of depressed pressure plate would produce 1 inch of upward tilt 90 degrees behind the cone. However, as noted earlier, not much tilt may be necessary to move a rolling cone.Tilt Motor Diagrams                     nathancoppedge.com
