"COQUETTE" PERPETUAL MOTION CONCEPTA device resembling the outline of the body of a bird, consisting of one SUMMARY piece of halved metal tubing running through the center over a pivot, with two further halved tubing pieces running downward roughly in an arc on either side, and joining the center tube at either end. One end is shorter, that is, closer to the pivot and more heavily weighted (this is essential), so that when a large metal ball weight is placed on the short end, it follows a slight downward slope past the pivot, where its weight begins to bear down on an upward grade. At this point it has leverage sufficient to lift the short end somewhat, so that as it moves onward it applies further and further leverage. When it reaches the end of the long end of the structure of tubes, the channel bisects backwards on a lower grade, giving two possible (and identical) paths. Each is graded in such a way that it is sloped in the horizontal in relation to the pivot joint. The predicted result is that, since the long end has reached its lowest point, the ball weight rolls until it reaches a point of lesser leverage, where the heavier weight of the short end of the structure begins to provide additional slope until the weight returns to the same point on the short end of the structure. The principle, much like the Repeating Lever type 2, is that return might be made on leverage through the use of counterbalance weights. NEXT: DIAGRAMS |

STATISTICS: CoquetteVOLITION: 2(2 active u / 1 dual-axial u) EQUILIBRIUM: 1 (1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle) EFFICIENCY: 2 or 4 (2 Ve / 0.5,1 VE) VOLITIONAL STATEMENT: The error here was an assumption about stems in a cycle, in other words I used the wrong math; I have doubts now, not so about the second iteration, Type 2 |

coquette may be inspired by the

angularity of coat hangers

STATISTICS: Coquette Type 2VOLITION: 2( 2 active u / 1 dual-axial u) EQUILIBRIUM: 1 (1 mobile u / 1 stems / 1 cycle) EFFICIENCY: 2 ( 2 Ve / 1 VE) VOLITIONAL STATEMENT: The secret here is that mobile leverage force differs within the same range of motion, producing imbalance; everything in the design is optimized for the effect;; |

What kingdom will lend its crown---?

Above the tree the form will tilt---!

By scaffolds built a gleaming machine---!

Older than the ancient em-pire---!

A seed, within a star

Higher than embiciles of gravity

It turns travelers a-jar---!

Here is this most simple infinity

Sitting beside a crumbling chimney

Made of brass or metal fair!

Physics lost its wits to make

The bricks stick together bricks, it takes

An engineer two thousand years to make----

A Til-ting Coquette!
