I'm usually very sceptic about perpetual motion machines, but I like the idea of the self flowing flask. If you make it in a closed environment so
water don't evaporate, make it big enough, and add a dynamo between the upper pipe and the flask, you could even have a great free energy source !
would be interesting to investigate. More than all the turning-wheels based ones, which will most likely stop at some point, even if slowing down very
Anyway the self flowing flask would probably also stop working with time, even if the water flows into a closed circuit to prevent evaporation. for 1
simple reason: Erosion. It would take a lot of time, but water will damage both the pipe and the glass. Anyway still the best approach for long term
perpetual motion if you ask me.
Btw, unlike op, I don't think magnets should be allowed into a pmp... for a simple reason: Magnets are like batteries, they have a limited magnetic
charge, and they deplet with time. So basically, they would be great to create an illusion of perpetual motion, but wouldnt be the real deal, plus
recharging them would require much more energy than what the machine could provide, so it's not viable for free energy generation (which is the main
potential great application of a perpetual motion)
