Non – stop engine
I am investigating a way to make an engine that can run continuously. I do not declare that it is a perpetual motion. However, my result until now is so positive.
1. Tools and facilities:
- The main component of this model is a wooden toy with dragonfly shape. Its head is a rectangle which is curved upward, with long tail
- A sharp pillar with a steel marble stick at the head
- The tail of dragonfly shaped specimen is put with a small weight to make sure this specimen settles down toward the tail.
- Then, touch the sharp peak of the rectangle head of the specimen very slightly into the marble so that it does not drop down
- The balance status of this dragonfly toy is very unstable. It is very easy to drop down as seen in attached screenshot
- I put this model into an out of wind room to make sure no external force can influence my experiment.
- The movement of the dragonfly shaped specimen is the combination of slight staggering and swinging. This movement is remaining continuously.
- It seems that the gravity of the specimen pulls it down , while it touches by halves to the pillar. This is the cause of its continuous movement.
I post my article here so that any interesting individual can follow and replicate my experiments.
Due to the limited size of attached screenshot in our forums, I cannot show the details here. You can contact me by email: << e-mail address deleted by Moderator >> , I can say further there, with more specific screenshot
All of my expectation that you can contact me and replicate my experiment

If you have a very finely balanced system with very little friction, you can keep some motion going for a very long time - sometimes days or weeks... I've even heard of reports of months.
However, there are always small losses in anything we can build. You model will, for instance, be affected by air resistance (at least!) which will eventually slow it to a stop. You probably have to start it moving - giving it a small push (maybe unconsciously via the ideomotor effect)
You have not shown any mechanism by which the device will continue against small losses.
Even if it were ideal - no losses - you still would not have a perpetual motion machine - since you will be unable to get any more energy from it that what you put in with the initial push.
It's basically one of these:
... you've added a bit of weight so the balance has it on a slope.
We have a similar toy in NZ, only ours is made to look like a bird hovering as if at a flower.
