"WOOOOOAH THERE Mister, idk about you, but we OBEY Newton`s laws of Thermodynamics on this website."

Newton`s laws of thermodynamics? You know, Newton`s laws aren`t right all the time... the laws of thermodynamics are, however - good thing Newton didn`t formulate them :)

"Lol, yeah you guys are probablly right, but that makes me think, what if you got a larger model with something with more grip vs. an artichoke pedal? Just give it a quick start spin, and couldn`t it potentially have the energy flowing through it non stop to keep this machine going?"

ryan99: Sadly, that doesn`t work. You`ll always lose energy to friction and wind resistance in moving parts, making any device like the one you`re suggesting stop eventually.

This is on display at the MIT Museum, along will a bunch of other amazing little machines. If you live in or are visiting the Boston area go to the MIT Museum in Cambridge, it`s fantastic!

Strangely blew my mind. Think how long it took to plan and construct, yet it conveyed, something.

"ryan99: I doubt it, I think there`s a power lead you can see."

Why? Is it supposed to be art representing man`s journey through life or something critically poignant like that? I`m at a loss....
