A strong magnet set in the open slot between sides of the wheel attracts an iron ball. The magnet is supposed to draw the ball to one side of the center to make the wheel permanently unbalance.The concept of this perpetual wheel has been patented in 1823.

That invention is fully described in book “Mechanical Appliances and Novelties of Construction” published in 1927 by Gardner D. Hiscox, Mechanical Engineer, and Norman W. Henley.The engine described in the video herebelow is of a relatively simple design.

Technically an ideal perpetual motion machine should have 0% efficiency, since it has to use 100% of it’s energy to keep itself running. Imagine an engine that can only work while left alone, without doing work to anything else. Would you say it’s very efficient? For those who think free energy is impossible to get, you’re wrong ! Ok, you can’t get nothing from nothing (basics of physics), but the fact is there is not “nothing”. Each object on our planet Earth is affected by one force : gravity !
