    The Perpetual motion machine that's viewed as the (goose that lays the golden egg) is one that can do what you're seeing but has the ability to dump any excess energy into a storage device like a battery bank which can be used to power a light or turn a motor aside from continually completing its asigned route.

    Now, use a plastic or ceramic track, use a magnetic ball and place toroidal coils under the track and line up a dozen or so of these, hook all the coils together in series, a rectifier, capacitor and voila you'll have a psudo-perpetual motion device. I say psudo because the magnetts will eventually lose their magnetism, but can be easily replaced while other magnets are added to the system. A simple magnet sensor on each would be sufficient to keep track of the magnetic input. This would actually solve some energy issues for a anything stationary. Use said device to power batteries and the worlds energy needs would be met. Scale it up and power whole cities 🤷‍♂️

      @J B Because of the way magnets work like that, the ball wouldn't have a net increase in speed. The reason batteries are required is because batteries can power an electromagnet with an alternating current. With this, the magnet is going to be constantly switching poles back and forth, so the ball gets attracted initially, but then as it goes past, it gets repelled afterwards to finally get that effect. Another way to disprove the idea with permanent magnets is that we know that perpetual motion machines cannot exist. If it were just a still magnet without the magnet experiencing any sort of change, it would be perpetual motion, with no energy lost. The battery is needed to supply the energy lost.

      @J B When the ball falls, the magnet attracts the ball to make it go faster. That part is true, but as it starts to go up again, away from the magnet, where it would supposedly slingshot back to the top, the magnet is still attracted to the ball. The ball is moving forwards, but the magnet is attracting the ball backwards. Because of this, the ball loses the same amount of speed gained by the magnet, and there is no change in speed, meaning magnet or not, it would get to the same place in an ideal world In the real world, this magnet interference would result in an even shorter distance traveled in the air.

    When the metal ball falls through that hole it activates a feather touch switch below that top container. This switches on an electromagnet momentarily placed under the base, which accelarates the metal ball further. Plz note how the base is elevated. Wow what an imagination...

    To those wondering how it works, this thing is literally a rail gun. The two rails are actually not made from the same piece of metal, but are actually disconnected. They are two conductors connected to a battery hidden in the base. There's also a small permanent magnet hidden there. When the ball rolls on the rails, the circuit closes and a small electric current starts flowing. This pushes the ball according to lenz's law. The force is tiny as it depends on the strength of the magnet. But that is enough to give it just enough boost to make it back to the top. So it's not a perpetual motion machine, since the battery feeds energy into the system.

    Even if this uses magnets the friction would eventually cause wear that would make changes to the thing that would cause it to fail. Perpetual means infinite, constant, forever ongoing. Perpetual motion doesn't allow for time out to make repairs or upgrades or changes.

    The balls are most likely negatively poled magnets and in the wood or below the wood is another negatively poled magnet. This applies a repellent force as the ball goes to the bottom of the rails. The magnets could also be along the hole that goes onto the rails forcing higher acceleration and velocity.

      @Rich well the laws of thermodynamics are pretty solid. But you’re correct. It’s only impossible for us. If you believe in multi-verse theory, you are 100% correct. Could be that our universe has limitations, but other universes have other limitations. They could be so weird. If there’s an on switch on ours, there can be an off switch on theirs. Which means the laws of thermodynamics could be completely useless in another universe.

    I think you can basically win energy in the ring while it circulating until it is in the hole. Can we say that we win gravitational energy then? It might be possible in my opinion, I mean what can possible drain energy from the bead other than the speed which we will exclude draining energy from? Edit: I saw some comments about electromagnet in the ring, but if we would remove the magnet and lower the ring and bend the device more into the ring so that it aims the beads right into the ring, this might be possible? Second edit: nevermind, I just woke up and I am tired I realized if we would do that, there would be no acceleration and lower velocity 😂

      @Anthony Testagrossa sure sure 🤣🤣. No matter how smooth your surface is you can never get a frictionless surface. And you say very confidently that it's stays in motion. An object can only be stopped if it experiences a component of force opposite to its velocity and there are multiple forces doing that job. Gravity, friction, air resist, etc. Gravity does help it speed up but once the ball goes uphill it works as a resistive force. So yeah PERPETUAL MOTION ISNT A THING.

    The giveaway is the steel ball, which 1) always jumps higher than the platform it drops from, and 2) the chute is a pair of wires, which the steel ball 3) connects, completing the circuit of an electromagnet hidden inside the 4) "two by four" base, which is hollowed out.

      @Blair Johnson it would be possible if it were an electro magnet but would also need a circuit board and potentiometer and/or hall-effect sensor that switches off the exact time the ball passes through the field. This all can easily be made very small and run off a double or even single A battery and could be inside the wood but I've never seen anyone flip one over to show the underside so I don't know.

      @Imperf3kt if you can harness more energy than the gravity added then it still counts as perpetual. similarly if you can harness more energy by moving something close to a permanent magnet than it takes to pull the thing away from the magnet, that would also be considered perpetual. both are impossible. this is an electromagnet that switches polarity as the ball passes

    So I had to go back and look up the laws of thermodynamics (hey! I did uni chem several years ago ok?!lol) and I was struggling to remember what entropy was, the 2nd rule, until I remembered a cool example that our prof gave us: ice cubes don't cool down your soda. The soda 'warms' up the ice until the temperature reaches an equilibrium again (room temperature). I know that this is a super basic explanation but at least it stuck! Isn't the ball accelerating unnaturally/wouldn't it lose speed from friction as it goes down? (1st law: energy cannot be created or destroyed but only changed to another form...)

      @Matthew McClary In a sense it’s efficiency. It’s why we use them in permanent magnet motors, and as super quiet & “frictionless” bearings in high-end equipment. But, again it is not perpetual motion, because they are an energy/momentum source added to every cycle.

      @Checkmate No - no permanent magnets gets even close to a perpetuum mobile. It only adds kinetic energy when an object gers closer. And takes back that energy when the object gets away. So use any number of magnets and you still can't overcome friction. Only a battery, solar panel, temperature gradient etc can be used to send in new energy and keep a device running for days or weeks - until it wears out or runs out of the energy source. But any magic fixed location permanent magnets can still not manage someyhing even "almost" perpetual. You can bounce with magnets. But no different from how a ball or spring can bounce. And every bounce is a bit weaker - not because the magnet wears out but because no fixed magnet can add more energy to compensate for losses.

    It works as the same principle as the rail gun. Two rails are somehow isolated and energized. When metal ball completes the circuit, magnetism pushes it forward. There must be batteries or a hidden cord somewhere

      @Jeff Hoyt This just isn't true (the simply gravity comment). E=K+U, coming out of the loop the ball has more speed and therefore a higher kinetic energy than it started with, to reach the same height would mean a return to the same value as U initial. A greater final kinetic energy and the same final potential energy, unsurprisingly, add up to a greater amount of total energy than existed in the first place, even when not accounting for loss as a result of friction.

    I don't know if you're right... exploiting gravity isn't a violation of the laws of thermodynamics. Gravity is the energy of this system and there's no decline or shortage of that (unless the earth is about to stop turning). I say you've done it, and all future models of perpetual motion will follow in your giant footsteps!

    How long would that last, if you made it perfect it should Last forever. It isn't a perpetual motion device, the ball gains energy going down the ramp and loses it all going back up, but since gravity is adding energy every drop it should just keep going.

    My guess is there’s got to be a magnetic NN or SS to make the bead accelerate through the chute. That’s why it feels like it’s unnatural to him?

    But it’s not perpetually in motion… the too part/loader for a ramp slows the ball down until it falls down the hole. Still a neat idea

    It is impossible to drop an object and have it come back to the same or higher height without external influence. Energy is lost through the redirection, either by hitting the ground or being guided along rails. The ball would not make it back to the cup naturally.

      @Senpai9000 No, because that would be perpetual motion. It needs to pull the marble down but then not be powered as it goes up the ramp, which a permanent magnet can't do.

    It doesn't create energy, it uses potential kinetic energy after an initial gain by pushing the bead with your hand.

    Eventually, the ball will slow down to the point where it won't have enough kinetic energy to battle the friction and make it over the wall of the circular feed.. thus, becoming a victim to the first and second laws of thermodynamics..

    It exists, but the problem is resistance. You just have to go to a place in space where you will find no resistance. Which does exist but…you’ll die before you reach it. Any type of gravitational pull is resistance folks…(for the ones who don’t know)

      If more people just knew wtf an electromagnet was it wouldn't be confusing. You could use a 'railgun' kind of system but that's not what is being done here since the rails are all shorted. The rails come conveniently close to the wooden base which is the dead giveaway. This means at a certain point that ball is real close to the electromagnet underneath, making it real easy to provide a pull at the right time.

    Is it just me or is it not actually making energy. The gravitational potential energy turns into kinetic energy which then gets used up to launch the ball back onto the platform. It’s a loop, energy is created and used up equally but it’s not creating any “net” energy.

      @Super Rambo it has an electromagnet in the base and those wire track act as a switch. So when the ball touches the track it closes the circuit which activates the electromagnet and it accelerates the ball.
