Hand-Made Replica Of Bhaskara’s Wheel Perpetual Motion Machine


Bhāskara’s wheel was invented in 1150 by Bhāskara II, an Indian mathematician, in an attempt to create a hypothetical perpetual motion machine.The wheel consisted of curved or tilted spokes partially filled with mercury.Once in motion, the mercury would flow from one side of the spoke to another, thus forcing the wheel to continue motion, in constant dynamic equilibrium./wikipedia

This is my home made perpetual motion machine. It started as a science fair project on renewable energy (powered by gravity). It is based on Bhaskara’s wheel design which is a type of overbalanced wheel… very similar to several designs by Leonardo Da Vinci.

I plan to add a small generator to it to generate electricity – free energy!My overbalanced wheel is a homemade perpetual motion machine that I intend on turning into a generator in order to produce free energy by taking advantage of the earth’s gravity.


It is based off of an overbalanced wheel model designed by Bhaskara (an Indian mathematician). There are many other designed made by people such as; Leonardo da Vinci, Brownian, Gedanken, Honnecourt, Taccola, Zimara, and Villard.

This machine may also be known as a water mill, Persian water wheel, Villard’s wheel, Brownian ratchet, mass leverage machine, gravity wheel, Bhaskara’s wheel, or even a magic wheel.
