Perpetual Motion Machine Concept Utilizing Rising and
Free-Falling Buoys, Second Iteration.

This design makes use of a convex triangular arrangement of buoys, in which
the bottom-most section feeds into the bottom of a water tank.

Because I determine that the entry pressure (or otherwise, 'resistance'), is determined
by the weight of the water in the tank column, then therefore, using a narrow upper
tank for the majority of the theoretically upwards-moving buoys and distributing the
upper weight on a wider circular bottom tank will create considerable efficiency.

In other critiques, people have said that rising buoys do not have any pull strength.

However, if the entry resistance could be reduced (mitigated), and if there is a very
small pull-strength, or a pull strength in the case of angularity of the buoys, or if the
free-falling buoys can contribute to pull using the opposite principle of flotation
(gravity), then perhaps the device is still workable.

This is not one of my favorite concepts, but at one time I was fascinated with the
possibility of making it work. Unfortunately, constructing a mock-up of this design is
outside of most people's budgets. Ideally, such a design would have some flexibility in
construction, unless some principle or other had been proved to work.

For other details about the design, see the listings at the left under 'grav-buoy'.
