Wow, when was the last time anyone saw a purely mechanical perpetual motion machine scam without any magnets or electrics? These guys really are scraping the bottom of the barrel by ingnoring the force everybody knows about...FRICTION. ::) :palm:

Some of these perpetual energy projects should be rebranded as objets d'art instead - kind of executive fidget toys. The prototype of this one is far too industrial even for that, though.

So pledge €100 for a biro and a sticker? Kickstarter pre-covid used to offer rewards of this magnitude for $5. That's lockdown inflation for you. It true though, this machine will produce zero emissions.
