"COQUETTE" PERPETUAL MOTION CONCEPT

SUMMARY

A device resembling the outline of the body of a bird, consisting of one
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.

STATISTICS: Coquette

VOLITION:  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
white elephant
Amongst other objects, the
coquette may be inspired by the
angularity of coat hangers
STATISTICS: Coquette Type 2

VOLITION: 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;;
THE SONG OF THE COQUETTE

When will come the tilting coquette---?
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!
