|Perpetual Motion Machine Concept Utilizing Rising and
Free-Falling Buoys, Second Iteration.
A machine incorporating a chain of interlinked buoys strung around
three wheels, in which energy might hypothetically be derived as a
result of the unidirectional nature of free-falling buoys fed into the
bottom of a water tank.
The buoys free-fall through a large portion of their path, from the lip
of an upper drum into the base of a lower drum. As you will see, the
use of a wider conical lower drum reduces the entry-resistance for
the single buoy that must make the transition at a given time.
Assuming there is sufficient force acting on the chain of buoys, a
single buoy may then enter the lower drum, and incline upward at a
45 degree angle towards the midpoint wheel, a compromise between
losing buoyant force and allowing the bottom drum to distribute the
weight of the water in the upper drum.
At the junction between the lower drum and the upper drum
(hereafter called the “midpoint”, even though it is not always strictly
in the center, or even the center of mass, necessarily) the buoys are
directed vertically, the better to take advantage of the full buoyant
force, and reduce the volume, and thus weight, of water in the upper

The First Iteration, bearing a strong resemblance to Frank Tatay's
design of 1929, is present online at:

Even in principle, ignoring laws of
nature, the device is encumbered
by a dependence on a huge
number of buoys strung to
impressive height. Frank Tatay's
similar design has been around
for almost 100 years.
