This clean energy idea is essentially a perpetual motion design. I know that is not possible, but before you switch off, please take some time to read the details. The design has a UK Patent Pending and includes some new ideas. If you add-up the forces over the whole device, they appear to produce an assymetry that can be used to power the movement. The amount of power that could be produced is still unclear, but would this defy the laws of thermodynamics which state that the total amount of energy remains constant? Are the forces on Planet Earth not asymmetric locally, for example?

  • In one direction the float closes to facilitate upwards movement.

  • In the other direction the float opens to impede upwards movement.

  • The water tube is replaced by a basin and frame, for even water forces.


The design makes a couple of changes compared to other water float designs. The first thing is that the float system runs around a wire framework that is placed in a larger basin of water. This would remove the local forces inside a tube, for example. The second thing is the float design itself, which opens and closes in one direction only, rather like the human hand. This means that the float shape is different on the two sides of the path that it moves around. This has been proven to produce asymmetric forces that by themselves, would encourage the float on one side to move upwards in preference of a float on the other side. So there is now an excess of force to help to move the floats around.

Funding and Collaboration

The invention still needs to be fully developed and tested. So a program of development and commercialisation is required.

How it Works


A 'floats in water' system for perpetual-like motion.


Water forces can be even and the float forces asymmetric.


Asymmetry gives a net upwards force that can move the floats around.


Cheap clean energy.
