STATISTICS: Horizontal Spiral
Device

VOLITION: 1 OR Infinite
(1 active u /1 dual-axial u)

EQUILIBRIUM:  1
(1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle)

EFFICIENCY: 1 OR Infinite ( 1 or
Infinite Ve / 1 VE )

VOLITIONAL STATEMENT:
One of the most ambiguous
designs I have built, it is a design
distinguished enough that it might
have applications. A spiral is used
to push one of two weights
equilibrized over a fulcrum. Since
the weight meets with little
resistance due to the balance, if
motion is produced it becomes
perpetual. The principle of
automatic spiral reset was first
proven in this design, as shown in
this video.

Device

VOLITION: 2
(2 active u /1 dual-axial u)

EQUILIBRIUM:  1
(1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle)

EFFICIENCY: 2 (2 Ve / 1 VE )

VOLITIONAL STATEMENT:
This is a rather ingenious concept.
Since the supporting spiral moves
throughout the motion of the
mobile weight, the spiral's
counterweight's mass-altitude
gained from the vertical drop can
(theoretically) be used to push the
mobile weight back upwards along
a gentler slope. The question is,
can it reach the gentle slope, or
can an early or sideways slope be
introduced? If so, it may be
perpetual...

These devices remain theoretical for now. But, due to their
excellence, they raise a special curiosity, if not for practical
purposes, then at least for ingenuity.

Spiral devices may involve vertical (up-and-down) spirals, or
horizontal (flat) spirals. Additionally, the spirals may have
broadness and twisting to create a greater or lesser momentum
in certain positions, and outward or inward movement for
strategic purposes.

Spirals have emerged somewhat late in my design process.
Good designs are surprisingly tricky to design, due to small
nuances like whether there is a means to return a marble at all.

Even Da Vinci's traditional designs often relied on fixed
positions, rather than attempting to operate within actual cycles.

So, to put it one way, I'm transducing all traditional methods...

Spiral

VOLITION: 2
(2 active u /1 dual-axial u)

EQUILIBRIUM:  1
(1 u / 1 stem / 1 cycle)

EFFICIENCY: 2 (2 Ve / 1 VE )

VOLITIONAL STATEMENT:
This device relies on gradual
leverage from a pendulum to lift
the base of support without lifting
the opposing pendulum. The very
silght lift of the base of support is
then used to overcome the slight
difference in altitude at the
beginning point.
