Wouldn't it be nice if electricity were free? Well, that's precisely what these two men from Australian thought. In fact, they've whipped up a perpetual motion machine that could save you money and let you produce your own energy. Maybe.
The machine uses the forces of magnetic attraction and repulsion to get it going. Once motion is in action, it's perpetual, and can be used to create an "infinite" amount of electricity. Call me a skeptic, but that sounds incredibly difficult, if you ask me.
The problem here is that it's highly unlikely that you could produce more electricity than what you actually use to get the machine running. Interesting nonetheless. However, these two guys will be selling the machines sometime next year for about $5,000 a piece. Sounds more like sci fi than science, but what do I know?
