This concept was originally designed to have a fixed track to the left of the length of the device, and a panel attached to the longer end, for applying leverage to convert upwards slope into downwards slope. Thus, as implemented the device is not full-concept. However, some of the tilting motion was used in this design, perhaps making advances on previous coquette concepts. In this case, at four or more flat edges of the track, an 'eridian' angularity is used, which is a kind of special contingency on the three-dimensional difference between the horizontal and vertical angularities. It's hard to understand how much thought went into this. If it weren't for the bump at the very beginning of the track, it appears this contraption would do an unusual 'Escheresque' upward motion, as you can almost see during part of the video, when the marble is on the far end (it rolls, apparently with a slight upwards motion). Anyway, the fault of this device, which is not completely apparent, is that in the current configuration, the marble cannot cut across because it has lost altitude. However, I can't modify the device to eliminate the bump, due to construction. But the portions on either side would allow a strong motion around the loop, and beginning and ending at the same altitude. Hard to believe, but a really good design towards that end. Construction was very imperfect, and I still got some results. So I have impressed myself in spite of myself. Obviously, from the outside this looks like a junk hobby, but in my opinion that's not what it is----this is high Volitional Science!

Self-explanatory, except for the part about perpetual motion in certain (other) configurations. Basically, it can be used as an argument against the gravity-altitude argument, which is used as a defense of the view that ramps cannot be used in perpetual motion. So this is kind of obscure, in theory terms. But neat to watch.

Devices like this make me wonder if there is potential with low friction. Interesting anyway, in my opinion. For example, maybe the rolling weight could be attached to a second pendulum, above the first. But I realize that is the folly of many types of designs. So chalk this one up to 'perpetual research' --- there's beauty in it anyway, in my eyes.

Here, contrary to some expectations, it is proven possible to build a wheel without a central axle... Didn't surprise me, just a little tricky to build.

Here is one of my most casual-ever attempts at over-unity, implementing a simple low-friction lever which follows behind the swinging ball. The ball is intended to activate its own continued motion, or at least make it easier.
