Take a look at this invention called the Perpetual Motion Marble Machine, and watch how it works. Have you seen it before, do you think there’s something wrong with what you’re seeing? Or do you think it’s working like it should.
Now take a look under the base of this crafty little invention, does this make some of you feel better? Or were you tricked into thinking that this invention really works, and the little steel ball would continue on its loop forever.
There’s a reason why there’s a battery and an electromagnet hidden under this device. Because without it, it would be impossible for the steel ball to continue in an everlasting loop as it would break the first and second law of thermodynamics.
It is not a perpetual motion machine…And there’s many more examples like it.
But is it possible that one day a perpetual motion machine will become a reality?
