World's first perpetual motion machine electricity generator

  1. This was created by a friend of mine - his name is Chip Burcham - he was 20 when he came up with this idea. Here's how it works: Two inner moving bar magnets repel each other. Next, two outer stationary bar magnets repel the two inner moving bar magnets back to each other. This process works infinitely. While the inner moving bar magnets are moving they each turn a gear. Each of those gears turns an axle and each of those axles turns a horseshoe magnet inside of a coil of wire generating electricity. Thus electricity can be produced forever using this machine.

    NS---SN---NS----SN
    ----Gear---Gear
    ----Axle----Axle
    ----NS----SN
    ----Coil----Coil

  3. The friction in the bearings of the gears, axle and air resistance of the moving magnets will all dampen out the motion over time. Cool idea though, could you supply a picture of the actual machine?

    No it can't.

    Please explain the source of energy for all this free electricity, before removing your head from your own rectum, and reading a physics book.

    No the motion will always continue. Air resistance is nothing. Friction will always be overcome simply because the magnets are big enough and thus powerful enough to overcome it.

    Obviously you don't understand how magnets, electric generators, and hydroelectric power plants work. In a hydroelectric powerplant the moving water (usually a river) turns magnets inside coils of wire generating electricity. Think of the inner moving bar magnets as rivers continuously moving back and forth turning the horseshoe magnets to generate electricity.

    Nonsense about mythical "perpetual energy" machines is not welcome here. We've heard it all before. Thread closed.
