Big try at gravity wheel
« on: May 03, 2013, 04:03:04 PM »
People in Porto Alegre, Brazil, are trying to build one big gravity contraption. Check at http://www.rarenergia.com.br/. Most of it is in Portuguese, but there is something in English.

You can say what you want, but these guys are thinking BIG. :-)

SNIP:
"We will build in Porto Alegre, at Av. Patria, 195 - a power generator that started by a
mechanic system, and exclusively powered by the gravity force.
It will be the first equipment with this technology in the world.
We have a small machine for experience and testing in our headquarter at Av. Pedro
Ivo,933. The mechanic system was created under a special conception, to pick up and
take the energy contained in the planet gravity, at any moment and place, without
pollution or heat. Technology was completely developed by our Company and consists
in a continuos movement with some extra energy that can be taken, in a continuous
and perpetual mechanic movement. This equipment is similar to a combustion engine,
where a set of wheights represent the fuel and pistons that activate assemblies connected
to a crankshaft. Another similar equipment will be built in the U.S.A. at the Incobrasa
Industries Ltd plant, a Company of the group, located in Gilman, IL. Both equipment
are demonstration models with capacity to generate 30 KW, and will be ready in the
middle of the next year. The technique allows the building of great power generators.
RAR Energia Ltda."
END SNIP.

Where's the working prototype, in a YouTube video? It can't possibly be real unless there's a YouTube video of it working. And making lots of noise, from the looks of things.

TK,

I bet a dollar that you are impressed with the size of that thing. :-)

Fascinating!   I have to believe that anyone putting that much money into a huge construction like that has down their homework and have built smaller working prototypes.  It resembles something I saw one time at EF and had briefly discussed with member Armagdgn03.

Try typing the url into Google, then click on the result and have it translate to english. Worked for me.
This is one big machine to be building if you did not know if it was going to work or not.

It is possible that investors were somehow convinced enough to put money in to building this big device........more evidence is needed to prove this is not just another scam......looking forward to the video if one ever turns up ;D

I just have to ask!!

If this invention works, what is the fuel that it uses
to continually rotate??

Weights. It's a gravity engine, so they have to feed it with weights.

What I actually meant by that question was that when
someone mentioned gravity being a fuel source the
topic went ballistic.  Weight by itself will power nothing.
Whatever causes the weight to move would have to be
the fuel.

Of course you have to lift the weights first. But that's just a minor detail. You can also buy pre-lifted weights, but not in the basement.

I am impressed, all right, by the size and the evident cost. One of those bearing-arm assemblies is undoubtedly worth more than my automobile.

But my automobile starts right up when I turn the key, and runs for as long as it has gasoline in the tank.


If I had a working prototype of this device I'd certainly make a YouTube video of it running. Wouldn't you?  "But the smaller ones only turned a few turns, and the bigger ones turned a few more turns, and by making a graph we can see that if we make a _really_ big one, it will keep on turning and turning and turning".... so forget about the YT vid of a running small prototype, let's just go ahead and build the big one, since the theory, and the data from the smaller ones, indicate that when it's over a certain size it will start running on its own.


Notice how confident the builders themselves are? There is no apparent provision for a brake or RPM limiter. Of course maybe those parts haven't been installed yet.
