If you were to have a fan, that has a button, that whenever you press it, the blades rotate (like those mini fans you can find at stores). But, when the blades rotate, they power electricity that powers the fan itself? Kind of like wind turbines but without the wind part.

Nope, that would an impossible perpetual motion machine.

Per the rules, we do not discuss perpetual motion machines, so this thread is closed.
