Epic failure? How so, it's not finished being built yet!
I can see how the mechanism works by pulling the weights in close to the crank as it turns clockwise and lifts up. On the down drop the weights slide
out away from the crank. Along the length of the shaft, the shape of the sign wave indicates the way the gravity energy is transferred.
Friction is this machines biggest issue due to all the moving parts, there are hundreds. If the weights work correctly and over come the friction, it
I noticed the sine wave too, thought it might be significant to the operation of the engine actually but cannot find any more to go on in that
Was thinking along the lines of an AC sine wave, with the frequency peaks scaled up or down (closer or further apart) depending on the size of the
engine, but always in keeping with a domestic AC supply.
Could be way off, i'm really only musing about it atm, but it's intriquing nonetheless.
ETA..they must know this approach works, as they claim to have built and tested a smaller engine as a proof of concept device. They wouldn't then go
on to build this gargantuan machine on a 'let's build it, it might work' whim.
There is real money being spent on this engine...i dread to think how much money and effort has gone into it.
Would any one of us build such an expensive and expansive device if we were not sure it would work as described...not only that, would you build it,
take out 5 expensive newspaper adverts and put the reputation of your large and successful company on the line too?
This is probably one of the most interesting 'alt energy' devices out there in recent years anyway.
It's a nuts and bolts, physical device that doesn't rely on abstract concepts of ether energy, orgone energy, tapping a vacuum or anything esoteric as
is usual with these types of things. It's a real, nuts and bolts machine.
A very large and very expensive...and very public machine.
I can't wait for more news from this build.
