So I came across this on the weird part of youtube today:



I'm sure we all know about the law of thermodynamics and such, and this probably isn't very new to the internet (the vids where put up in 2010, after all, and there are plenty of other, similar ones), but this interests me greatly.

I can assume that there's still going to be issues with this, as I doubt that any of these machines could function forever. It occurs to me that if something like this could be built on a larger scale, using parts that were built in a way that made them easy to assemble/replace should they wear down/degrade, then this has a great deal of potential for developing clean energy power generators. I'm curious to see what other people's opinions are on the matter :P

I guess the matter is that free energy systems like this aren't commercially viable. You sell each of these generators once, and then you never see another dime.
Pesonally I think that we have to wait for the fossil fuel crash - once they're out of petrol to sell, they'll have no choice but to turn to alternatives. The question is whether they can corrupt this system and turn a profit from it, or whether they will find another resource to consume,

EDIT: also
