"Green Energy"

    Is anyone here involved in the search for new energy sources?

    Welcome to PF!

    That's a bit of a loaded question. There are a lot of good energy sources already in use and a lot of people are researching how to improve our use of them. But there isn't much left to look for in terms of discovering new sources.

    I did not mean for the question to be loaded, I am asking if anyone on this site is involved with a serious attempt at energy production.

    Does growing biofuel count?

    I'm always on the search for new green energy sources.
    Pak Choi and Broccolini are the latest I've found at my vege shop. I will likely produce them myself soon :smile:

    I suppose I'll answer with a question. Why do ou want to know if anyone here works in those kinds of fields? If you have a question about them, just ask the question.

    While I was in school me and my brother made a device that transforms human energy into electricity. This isn't new as we were inspired by bicycle used for workout in gym. We made a device that generate by humans walking on it. This can be used in park or railway station. So human source can be considered to generate. You have to find the right mechanism.

    I have found, and made a working model of a lever which is positioned between two springs. The lever is two parts, one that is greater than one to one, and one that is one to one which. The two remain constant in position to each other throughout the movement. I now have the design for the switch. So, what I am saying is when switched one way, the one spring compresses the other and when switched to the second position, the two springs are equal which drives the lever back to the starting position. I am asking because I am at the point of asking if anyone here is involved in this research and development. Thank-you.

    I thought I smelled something -- so this is a perpetual motion machine thread. We don't do perpetual motion machines here because they are impossible. I urge you to stop pursuing this impossible idea and learn some real science instead. Thread locked.
