I like the flask and the wheel with the marbles. Forgive my ignorance, but what would the purpose be of a perpetual motion machine?

I believe the attraction is that once started they would continue virtually forever requiring no external power - hook that up to an output device and you have free energy....

Perpetual motion(with excess energy extraction) has been long seen as perpetually absurd.
Not even one device throughout the past and current years have ever survived scrutiny.
Not a single one.
