# Homework Help: Gravitational machines

Does anyone have any good ideas and designs of a gravitational machine. I have one, but I still need to study some other things before I start experimenting on the subject.

What do you mean by a gravitational machine?
I have one as well, it sits on my desk and by cleverly interacting with the warped spacetime around earth stops papers blowing away!

I have one too; I use it every day. It's not nearly as compact as yours - this one's big enough to stand in! When activated, it creates an effect that is indistinguishable from gravity. Without looking out a window, there's no experiment you can do that will tell you whether you're under the influence of gravity, or under the influence of the machine.

Also, whenever I step out of it, it has magically transported me from the street to my office.

:uhh: utter lies. i have a graviton coupling constant meter so i can easily tell whether it's your machine or gravity.

Did you get the relativistic version, with go-faster 'superluminal motion' stripes? :rofl:

:grumpy:I mean a machine that increases or decreases gravitational pull

The problem is that once you have done the "further research" you will have nothing left to experiment on!

hey now being close minded never got anyone anywhere, he should talk about what he's done

sorry but i can't share the designs right now because if I did and if this machine of mine works than someone could take credit for it....... anyways i just needed some ideas for my machine.... I have not build it yet for the reason that I can learn more of what i am getting into and am i going in the right direction....... sorry if I am using the term research the wrong way....

you realize this is impossible, to do this

alright, how do I close this discussion down

do you know how gravity works? I suggest you do some research with that first before you continue. You may think you know but uh, i dont think you do.
