That was Awesome!!

Must have disabled the off balance shutdown.
And it comes for the cameraman part way through!

This seems relevant here.
I found it pretty interesting.

There were also two follow up videos.
I diddnt find them AS interesting, but figured id include them as well.


Reminds me of my ice fishing days.

1/4 of a ton, and what do you get?
a coal-lift video, and the best one yet.

Good post, cheers.

Its not a coal-lift, it transports shale for making bricks. It’s an amazing system, powered only by the gravity of of the descending buckets, no electricity or fuel burned to make it work, just the weight of the descending buckets lifting the empty buckets back up.

It was due to stop working and be dismantled in 2018, but was granted until 2036 without a single objection.

thanks RichH.
you are right.
i tried to link
it to an old
coal -mining
song.

here is more “modern” version:

When the core started hopping around, it reminded me of the houndeye sonic creatures from Half-Life. LOL .

Go to 1:40 to see what to use a Trustfire battery for…

This is the kind of stuff that leaves the mind wondering if somehow, some way, the right use of magnets could really result in a perpetuation machine. Of course, if you’re a physicist you’d scoff immediately. But these days, there are people who put more faith in their own beliefs than experts. Facepalm

well, that brings up another point…does it have-to-be perpetual?
how about 100 years? if it took 100 years to “run down” that would
be forever in my life-time. nuclear power could handle that and more.

One of the laws of physics is that energy cannot be created or destroyed.
So one would need a system with 0% energy loss to operate forever.
But – it would still need energy to get started.
There have been various contraptions that use gravity to spin a wheel by having weights around the edge move inward and out as the wheel spins.
Friction is is the killer.

There is a thing called an ATMOS clock that appears to be perpetual.
It uses changes in room temperature to wind the spring and an ultra slow and heavy wheel as a pendulum.

Once setup, they will run unattended basically forever – until some mechanical part fails.
We have one we gave my parents in 1995 that has been running since then – untouched except when we moved it to our house (and to set the time). Others have been running far longer than that.
Here’s a vid explaining the mechanization.

Then there is the Crooks Radiometer. When I was a kid I thought it was just the photons pushing the blades around. Smarter people than I have argued about how the thing works. But they are still super cool to watch.

All the Best,
Jeff

I’m going to ask if Acebeam would send me the X50 to mount on the drone. Who doesn’t want to to 40,000 lumens on a drone lol

EXACTLY. Even for machines that could run for an extremely long time (many months), the friction is what erodes the perpetual possibility.

It’s getting fuel from the environment… which means it’s not perpetual. BUT, it’s making wonderful use of an ambient ‘fuel’. Heat or light. It’s essentially free, as it ultimately comes from the sun with no cost. That’s what always perplexed me about alternative energy, why solar tech was moving so incredibly slow… while there’s all of this free fuel raining down on us. “No, we’ve got to suck & pull it out of the ground!” Of course, hydroelectric is the most prolific and has been around for a century. But that’s pretty much a fixed asset.

In the U.S. State of Kansas, wind power is the largest source of electricity, generating over 41% of the state’s electricity in 2019.
Curiously enough, this is a red state that prided itself on coal consumption. There’s a lot of fossil fuel diminishment in states that once openly scoffed about renewable energy.

Solar:
California – 32,394 MW
Texas – 11,063 MW
North Carolina – 7,308 MW
Florida – 6,681 MW
Arizona – 6,112 MW

I forgot which midwestern state has the fastest growing solar power implementation, but it’s something like 40% of all power consumption. That’s compared to less than 5% just 20 years ago.

A 10 minute motorcycle police chase on narrow streets in South America? somewhere. The chase starts in the video at 1 minute 20 seconds. 2 other short clips in the first minute.https://youtu.be/KLUGtQkvrws

You can't compare the big flashlight in the sky to the little flashlight in your hand.

Unbelievable! I really thought that guy flying on his bike was going to crash. Insane the chances he took, especially with a rider on the back for most of it.
