At first I misread that as 800% and I suspected Batterisers were involved. ;D

Lighthouses used to have "gravity energy storage" devices to rotate the light. ;D
There was a big weight on a chain which slowly "fell" from near the top of the lighthouse tower to the bottom.
Every few days, the Lighthouse keeper would wind it up with a big "crank handle".

Don't hydroelectric power plants regularly achieve 90-95% efficiency?

That Gravity Energy © proof of principle 2016 video with the balancing weight reminds me of that box shimmering on its own in The EEVblog Lab VIBRATES! video.



I don't think you can get any energy out of that.

The last picture on their homepage explains how it works: we need an elephant (not included) to make it vibrate.

Apparently, these guys reinvented the wheel one of these pseudo perpetual motion toys like "drinking bird" or barometric clock.
