Claims to Operational Units

Preface 
For a rotary device to "work" it has to achieve a full 360 rotation, with acceleration between each complete turn. At this time, there are no known functioning gravity motors -- only claims, which have not been validated in our day -- at least as far as we know.

Abstract

A gravity powered rotational machine for rotating an output shaft to power a generator, pump or the like. The machine comprises a frame mounted pivot bar, a plurality of first swingarms rotatably attached to a center section of the pivot bar, a weight member slidably mounted on the first swingarms, a stationary railing defining a path around the center section, a rotational structure rotatably mounted on end sections of the pivot bar, second swingarms interconnecting the rotational structure and the first swingarms, and a driving mechanism interconnecting the rotational structure and output shaft. The center section of the pivot bar is off-set from its end sections. The stationary railing guides the first swingarms around the center section and directs the weight members inwardly and outwardly on the first swingarms while they group in a drop zone and spread in a lift zone of the path to rotate the output shaft.

  • US Patent 6237342; May 29, 2001; John J. Hurford; Abstract: A gravity motor which is formed of at least one motor unit which has a least one motor member fixed to an output shaft. The output shaft is rotationally mounted on a housing. The housing includes a guide surface. The motor member is low frictionally longitudinally movable relative to an output fhaft. Each end of the motor member includes a weighted follower which is low frictionally movable relative to a guide surface. The rotation of the motor unit will cuase one weighted follower to be moved toward the output shaft by the ghuide surface with the opposite weighted follower of the motor member being moved away from the output shaft. The result is gravity produces an overall clockwise torque on the motor member which causes rotation of the output shaft.

  • Mikhail Smeretchanski's Perpetual Motor - France Patent #2830575, 2003. "This invention relates to a device allowing the mechanical production of energy, using the variable-volumes elements by the gravitation and the Archimedes force for its operation."

    Improvised Overbalanced Wheel 24th, Computer Simulation - This video shows that at least a computer simulation seems convinced that this overbalance wheel will work. At a minimum, people like this should get credit for being willing to think out side the box and move toward implementing something. Before nixing it, plug it into your simulation or, better yet, build one. Then you'll have evidence on your side, not just prejudice. (PureEnergyBlog; March 24, 2013)

Caution

  • EnvironEnergy's Waranlinc Wheel with SPEGG Generator - Claim to a wheel that uses gravity and the kinetic force of spinning arms and firing bullets to generate output torque that can be tapped for work. Supposed unveiling Oct. 27, 2004. We caution that there is reason to believe that this outfit is fraudulent.

Disproved

  • Chas Campbell Generator - Austrialian inventor demonstrates a prototype generator with input of 800 W, able to self-run off the 3500 W output, with energy left over to run a drill, a saw, and other appliances. Claims he can scale it up to 1 megawatt output. Part of the input allegedly comes from a gravity wheel.
    • Chas Campbell Generator Discredited - It turns out that the Australian inventor who made Channel 10 News in July, demonstrating an alleged overunity generator with input of 800 Watts, running 3500 W output, operating a drill, a saw, and other appliances; was apparently doing so via a flywheel effect, not because of harnessing some free energy source.

Modern science says that this is impossible, yet now at least two people have shown that it is possible.
    • Johannes Bessler Rehabilitated - While the history of overbalancing gravity wheels is spotty, the Bessler Wheel apparently worked well but went to the grave with its inventor. Now the concept seems to have been replicated in two different devices by Scott F. Hall. (Hasslberger Blog; Aug 9, 2007)

  • Hall's Gravity Motor - After studying Bessler and other's designs and compiling the principles, Scott Hall whipped out a design, cut it out of wood, and it appeared to work, but its motion was most likely due to a slightly inclined garage floor.

Failed Attempts

  • Lamp Lit by Gravity Wins Greener Gadget Award - A Virginia Tech student has created a floor LED lamp that is powered by gravity, using a weight slide similar to the concept of a grandfather clock. The lamp was originally calcualted to put out the equivalent of a 40-Watt bulb, and lasts four hours per cycle; and the mechanism was expected to last 200 years; however, these calculations were in error.

  • Milkovic Two-Stage Mechanical Oscillator - Serbian inventor, Veljko Milković, shows how leveraged secondary oscillations evince around twelve times more energy than the input energy supplied to the primary pendulum. Highest scientific rating of "original scientific work" granted the patented technology.
  • OS:Milkovic-Berrett Secondary Oscillator Generator - Brian Berrett of Lehi, Utah has built a two-wheel device that uses the two-stage mechanical oscillator principle set forth by Mikovic. The electrical output from the secondary wheel is far in excess of the electrical input required to maintain the primary pendulum oscillation on the first wheel.
"The transparent plexiglass water wheel is started or stopped by hand. It lifts water from the lower pond, dumps it into the upper pond. The resulting overflow pours into a plexiglass compartment near the wheel's outer edge, giving it a propulsive push. This exposes more water surface area to the air and dispersing or absorbing warmth. Rutan won't say how the wheel continues turning: "It's like a magician giving up the secret of his trick."
The wheel has six segmented and partitioned compartments. Water flows into an inlet port of a bottom compartment as it extends about two inches into the pond. As the wheel turns, the water flows inside the compartment, then runs into a smaller section near the wheel's center." (Popular Science; 1989)
