How to generate electricity at home
Hey guys, I finally managed to build a perpetualmotion device, or a free energy device based on the ancient Indian design by Bhaskara. On the internet, you will mostly see thismodel, where bottles are attached to the circumference of a wheel, filled with water. But this is not the actual Bhaskara’s design.
Who is this Bhaskara?
Now, Bhaskara also known as Bhaskara the Learned,is an ancient Indian mathematician as well as an astronomer, who lived about 900 yearsago. He was the very first person to think of aperpetual motion machine, a wheel that would run forever. He also made several key discoveries includingthe principles of differential calculus, 500 years before Isaac Newton.
He realized that in this setup, the liquidwould keep moving inside, leaving one side of the wheel perpetually heavier than theother, turning the wheel forever. But why do we need a wheel that runs forever? If we can invent anything that can run forever,then we could get free energy.
Today we are buying energy from external sources,but what if there is a machine which can run on its own, then we can tap into it, and makelight bulbs glow or run fans, without paying for electricity. This is why devices like the Bhaskara’s wheelare called Free Energy Devices. Sometimes, they are also known as OverunityDevices because they operate at an efficiency of more than 100%.
If we make a device like this, we can getan unlimited supply of electricity. Will Bhaskara’s wheel accomplish the job? Today, the internet is full of these wheels,where people claim that this is Bhaskara’s wheel. The design is quite simple. It has several bottles attached to the circumferenceof the wheel.

These bottles are partially filled with water,I just added colors to it, so you can see it better. I made sure that the bottles are filled withexactly the same amount of water now if I rotate,some people claim that this wheel will run forever. Let us see if this works. I have an online stopwatch, I am going tospin this wheel and start the stopwatch. Let’s see how long this will actually work? So you can see that this wheel actually wasspinning only for about a minute.
Now, Of course this wheel is poorly balancedand this is not the prefect model. But still even if you made a perfectly balancedwheel, this wheel would have stopped anyway. Why? Because this is not the actual Bhaskara’sWheel. As you can see it stopped after, just abouta minute, So does this prove that perpetual motion machines do not exist? No! This is not the Bhaskara’s wheel at all.
This is not the Bhaskara’s design at all. This is the Bhaskara’s original design. I have designed Bhaskara’s wheel as per Bhaskara’soriginal design. It is a well-balanced wheel and I have putbearings on it to reduce friction. The spokes are actually hollow tubes whichcan be filled with mercury and I will show how to make it run forever. But first, these tubes have been left emptyand I am going to give it a spin and let’s watch how long this rotates.
So I am starting the timer. And these tubes are empty but I am going togive it a spin and Let’s see how long this spin. ok you can see that it stopped. As you can see this device ran for about 2minutes. To make it into a free energy device, Bhaskaraadvices to add mercury in equal proportions into these tubes. So, I am going to use a syringe to take mercuryout this container and put into these tubes and put them all in place.
Why is important of Bhaskara’s wheel?
Because when I rotate the wheel, mercury wouldflow from one side of the spoke to another, making the wheel increase its motion. Why did Bhaskara decide to use mercury insteadof water? Because mercury is very heavy liquid and hassome magical properties and also does not stick to anything. Ok now you can see that I have filled allthe tubes and this is the last tube, but watch what happens as soon as I put in the lasttube. This is going to be very interesting.
As you can see, as soon as put in the mercurythe wheels starts to spin by itself. This is the perpetual motion machine whichwill literally spin forever. Perpetual motion is actually confirmed byNewton’s First Law of Motion. Newton says ‘An object in motion will remainin motion, unless there is an external force.’ Think of planet earth and how long it hasbeen continuously spinning without stopping. It has already been moving for more than 4.5billion years.

So, how does this wheel spin forever? So, this is the secret! I put my hand behind it as soon as put thelast tube and turned it like this. So this is how most of the perpetual machineson Youtube work. YouTube is full of videos which claim thatthey have created perpetual motion machines, but most of them, if not all of them are fake. They realized the best way to get free energyis by making fake videos and get adsense money to pay their power bill.
That is free energy, if you think about it. So why does the Bhaskara’s wheel not work? What really happens is that, moving partsmake one side of the wheel heavy and shifts the center of mass downwards below what’sthe center right now. So, with the change in the center of mass,the wheel just acts like a normal wheel, it will slow down and then swing like a pendulumbefore it finally stops.
About 500 years ago, Leonardo Da Vinci tookthe Bhaskara’s wheel and tried to create a perpetual motion machine. He added little balls inside the spokes insteadof mercury. Of course, it is pretty easy to do this. All I have to do is add little metal ballsinside the spokes. This is the Da Vinci’s attempt at making aperpetual motion machine, and of course this will also stop, it cannot run perpetually.
So, this is Da Vinci’s attempt at makinga perpetual motion machine and of course you can see this will also stop. Of course, the Da Vinci’s attempt at makingthe perpetual motion machine also failed. This will also stop because it can not runperpetually. Why? Because as far as we know, all Perpetual motionmachines break the first and second laws of thermodynamics.
This is almost like trying to charge a powerbank with itself. Now, think about it? Did I just make a perpetual motion machine? Is it a free energy device? Am I able to charge the power bank using thepower from the power bank itself? Now, this is not to say we may never comeup with an actual perpetual motion machine. Because we do not understand much about theUniverse, and many of us have a closed mind which does not think of new possibilities.
Think about it, before Wright brothers, alot of scientists were convinced that anything heavier than air would never be able to flyin air. It sounds remarkably scientific, but somepeople do break these “Universal Laws” and then it becomes a matter of fact. For example, think about making a device poweredby radioactive decay from an isotope with a really long half-life. If we make such a device, it will run forthousands of years.
We already have something called the OxfordElectric Bell which is still working after 175 years of continuous running. If you look carefully, you can see the littlevibration, this is the bell ringing. Of course, scientists argue that these arenot perpetual motion machines, but imagine spinning a wheel and it runs for a hundredyears without stopping. It would take scientists a 100 years to verifyif it is a perpetual motion machine or not, and I think by current standards it wouldbe a significant step forward in science.
Plus, Nikola Tesla himself once said quote:” No free energy device will ever be allowed to reach the market.” end quote. This means that such devices are indeed possible. Some have claimed that Bhaskara actually madeanother device which did run forever, it is said that many of his writings and inventionswere destroyed, and this technology is lost. Remember, many strange devices were inventedin India including the anti-gravity jar.
So, may be ancient people did build free energydevices. So what do you think? Is it possible to build a perpetual motionmachine? Or is this just a pipe dream? Please let me know your thoughts in the commentssection.
