Hey guys I've been trying to find the name or a link to a particular contraption with no luck in sight.
Basically when I went to Loyola College for a semester before transferring, I recalled going to this really small class seminar, and playing with this
contraption after it was over.
its basically a ball that moves up a slope, its not magic. From what I can remember, my professor said it has to do with the uneven weight
distribution of the ball.
I haven't emailed my professor's yet, I just would feel awkward and rudeyou know? "Oh hey, how've you been? Good? That's good. So yeah....the
reason why I emailed you was because I want to know the name of that one contraption...you know...." If no one can find me a name or link..I'll
probably will email my professors though.
The reason why I'm so fascinated with this contraption is I see its application as a perpetual motion device, lol, I just want to play around with it
to see what I can make of it....what? I'm a kid with ambition!! If it fails, oh well the contraption would still be a cool souvenir.
