From your link: Perpetual motion describes motion that continues indefinitely without any external source of energy. This is impossible in practice because of friction and other sources of energy loss. Furthermore, the term is often used in a stronger sense to describe a perpetual motion machine of the first kind, a "hypothetical machine which, once ...

Looking at it from a very different perspective than my other answer: Advanced technology or storing energy does not help with perpetual motion just as they do not help with making time go backwards. It is not in the scope of technology to begin with. The difference is: it looks like it is in the scope of technology - even if you look closely. That ...

For creating perpetual motion, storing energy is not important. It does not help that we can store energy in magnets. We can store lots of energy in batteries too - nothing new here. So maybe you think about the force a magnet can have in attracting or repelling something for infinite time without getting weaker? But if you just sit on a chair - there is ...

This is an interview that starts at a more technical overview of the QEG machine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=RJKE5DJRMFQ#t=715 The technical guy James Robitaille is obviously not a sales person, so when he speaks with his pauses, he seems a bit more of a technical geek than a "con artist". I submit he probably isn't a con ...

Something must be proven or understood. So would beware from such answers like @Anand did. As example Nuclear reactor could be accepted like Perpetuum Mobile device, would it be invented some time ago. But definitely chances, that someone just invents something from future, without proper knowledge's , equipment, theory etc, are low (as my opinion I ...

See Anand's answer: I'm not sure whether this one is simply misguided or instead subtle fraud (as calls for money to fund research are involved). Actually the claims made in the article are true in one sense, which gives the idea the whiff of sophisticated fraud. In the linked article, it is claimed that the device is powered by a 1kW source and then ...

According to the 1st law of thermodynamics, energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form and is thus conserved. If it did work you would be going against 200 year of scientific consensus. Good luck!

What you are describing sounds like an electric motor with only permanent magnets. This is one of the most used approaches for people who try to build a perpetum mobile. But energy can neither be created or destroyed, so it has to come from somewhere. So this eternal engine might work if you in some way harvest the vibrations of the magnet. Like thermal ...
