 Well, it might *work* if you build it right, depending on what you
want it to *do*!

Then there's Perpetual Immobility.  More commonly known as "couch potato."

imho check out Atmos clocks:

http://www.webcom.com/z4murray/

and Stirling engines:

http://www.bekkoame.or.jp/~khirata/indexe.htm

both use a small baloon or membrane as a 'piston' in some variants.

Perpetuum mobile ? No comment.

If you remove all the extraneous parts, what this device is, is what
we call a 'teeter-totter', a plank centered on a fulcrum and powered
by 2 isoweight kids.  In this case, the 2 kids are the perpetual
motion device.
designed my first p-m device at age of 7.

Jeez, sounds like PIC developers get a too much free time!

I thought microcontrollers were for *embedded* use, not *inbedded*....

yes, isn't there a passage in the bible where god tells his people to
multiply themselves? (i don't have the english wording in my head, only the
german one...) you're going with that one, don't you? :-)
