If your car breaks down, you need to find a mechanic to work on it. How do you tell if you are talking to a qualified mechanic? Glad you asked. It has always been a part of common culture to understand that if you go to a mechanic with a problem with your vehicle and [...]
We have seen a lot of debate about perpetual motors as sources of perpetual motion energy (PME). Until now, the search is not over. Although prototypes have been released, there are still many challenges to come up with the ultimate perpetual motion machine. For now, the only maximum number of years that the current perpetual machine can operate in is 400 years. Just lately, designs on this type of machine keep on appearing to battle the crises we are all facing regarding energy and the rising cost of fuel. For a simple definition, machines that can generate perpetual motion energy are machines classified under the laws of thermodynamics violated. Below you will see how perpetual motion machines are classified. Essentially, there are two types of classifications.
The first classification is called Magical Devices. These perpetual motion energy machines are not real and these machines operate under principles unknown to mankind. One great example of this type of magical device is the Cavorite. This machine is working on a self-accelerating wheel and works on anti-gravity. The second classification is called Impossible Machines. These are machines that defy logic and are also called ambiguous. The best example for this is a machine that lets water run upwards, not downhill.
Many engineers have designed machines that may seem to run perpetually. Actually, many of these claims are fakes. However, they would seem real to the eyes of a normal individual. To determine whether a machine can be classified as a PME device, it has to be able to run for a long time without the interference from an outside force. These machines, however, will eventually breakdown. In fact, they are only called perpetual machines because they may outlast a person’s life or they can last to more than hundreds of years.
