Perpetual energy for the most part has turned out to be an Internet farce.  Last year we ran a story about some Aussies who claimed they had produced a perpetual energy generator that was powerful enough to power an entire home and was reasonably priced.  Surprise, surprise, we haven’t heard anything more from them.

But, the above video, which is relatively detailed, shows you how to make a perpetual energy machine to power a light bulb and it looks real.  Using just magnets and some household items it appears to be totally feasible.  Unfortunately, the video stops short and doesn’t actually show the light bulb connected.  You be the judge, does this look like the real deal? Would the motor hold up? Can the magnet make it spin fast enough to power a light bulb?
