Oh dear, oh dear

Gosh. Perpetual motion machines ARE REAL and you can use them to generate FREE ELECTRICITY and power your home.

And the reason it’s not used more widely is because OF A BIG CONSPIRACY TO COVER IT UP.

Oh dear.

If you watch the videos – it all seems so plausible. There is even a patent so it must work, right? Wrong! Patents are patents, they are not a determinant of truth.

Do some more digging, you will find this: http://www.rexresearch.com/christie/christie.htm#how

The bit right at the end explains how the fallacy works.

If ever asked, don’t invest your money in such devices.

The purveyors of “free energy” machines come in several types:
1. Scam artists
2. Deluded, but well meaning people
3. Complete nutcases

It is not clear which category these guys fit into.

It is always hilarious, but frustrating reading these web sites. If I had the time and patience I am sure I could find dozens of problems with their claims, but I can’t be bothered. A very common problem with these sorts of machines is that the inventors don’t understand power factors. They think it is a bogus concept invented by evil engineers to make them look bad. On this site, they have an equation (integral of I(t) x V(t)) which looks like it would take this into account, but it has no context, so is completely pointless. It is hard to believe that they could not notice that this is useless without any accompanying circuit diagram.

I had to laugh about their spiel about a magnet holding up a weight. It is utterly irrelevant. Also, if the weight has not moved, no work has been done. This is high school physics. It doesn’t inspire confidence in their technical capabilities…
