Perpetual Motion Machine by Norwegian Artist & Inventor Reidar Finsrud

Norwegian artist and inventor Reidar Finsrud believes constant motion isn’t only possible, but will give free energy to the world. He’s even built a machine to prove it. Watch to try and determine where the power comes from that keeps his device going:

What’s a perpetual motion machine? It is a machine that can operate indefinitely, without one having to connect it to any energy source. But the possibility of ever producing such a machine has been a contentious issue, as most scientists believe it is impossible.

Reidar Finsrud, creator of the machineThe reason behind this contention is the first and second law of thermodynamics. The first one states that the amount of energy contained in a particular system remains constant, as it can not be destroyed so as to reduce it, or increased in any way. What changes are the forms of energy, which transform from one state to another.

The second law also concurs with the first, stating the energy in a system never goes down. But these facts were still not enough to stop Reidar Finsrud from believing in the impossible.

Liking to think outside the box, Reidar set out to actually produce a perpetual motion machine. Not only has he done so, but he believes that he has succeeded in producing the first of its kind.

If this machine actually turns out to be a perpetual one, I wouldn’t be surprised if all energy producing companies saw this as a threat to big business (like Nikola Tesla all over again). Reminds me of M. C. Escher’s Ascending and Descending (1960), don’t you think?
