Do you mean a perpetual motion machine?
It is so, but forgot that scientists still use Latin language for easier communication. Perpetual motion machine, as I found in the reference, actually violates both of the thermodynamical laws. First, because the only result of this hypothetical mechanism would be work done by a system greater than the energy transfered into the system (first type of perpetuum mobile). Second, because there are no mechanism that could completely convert all entire energy of a system into work (second type of perpetuum mobile).
