At the beginning of a new century, we do wonder what kind of new inventions will enrich our daily lives. Walking through thick books about the inventions man made over the centuries we can only be sure that wonderful things are yet to come.
At the end of the 19th century some scholars declared that everything was invented, but they did not know that there would be an enormous boost of new creations and ideas after Worldwar II. Those things enlightened our lives and people got more time to do other things besides the daily occupations.
Goods were delivered from all over the world, were sold cheap in our shopping-malls and we got the liberty to travel far or build our houses in another state. Being close to work but far away from our families and friends. But we were lucky, because you could always take your car to go home.
And to realise all these kind of transport we need gasoline or oil. It was cheap in the old days, but now oil-prices reach the ceiling and therefor we must find other means of empowerment. Nuclear power might still be dangerous and oil-products pollutes land, sea and air. And finally when prices for oil will be increasing only a happy few will be able to travel or transport goods with, at the end, that the prices of necessary goods will also become skyhigh.
Trying to get a better world I have always asked myself why people do not use other forces in nature to get clean power. Maybe they can be used for transport, to get electricity or heat up the water in your bathtub.
Let me walk you through some of my ideas I’ve put on paper over the last years. I might not be a rocket-scientist and a lot of these ideas will be rejected by scholars, because it can not be realised in real life. The ideas might be too expansive to build or might stop at a certain point in time, so they might be just useless.
I am just a dude with ideas and I can handle a crayon. Therefor, the next presentations are nothing more or less than a combination of the above. But I do hope these ideas/drawings might inspire people to get started. Not to build a perpetuum mobile but to build new apparatuses to enrich the lives of every inhabitant of Earth.

Magnetic Power Engine
This engine works by the rejection of magnets to get a rotation, so that a dynamo will spin and provide electricity.
One rotation of the blue wheel, boosted by the rejection of the yellow magnets (at the wooden surface and under the blue wheel), will let the little yellow wheel spin 6,5 times.
The light green hook at the little yellow wheel than will transport this spin to the dynamo, by the dark green rubber band, that will provide electricity for the lamp.
In this example all movement will finally end by friction, but man could also use gear wheels (a large one -containing the magnets- and a small one -glued to the dynamo). Putting the MPE in a vacuum room friction should be increased to zero.
This is no Perpetuum Mobile, but a independant Power Source, available in everyone's garage, powering your House and Electric Car.
A. MPH or Magnetic Power Helicopter
A simular system could be used to engineer Magnetic Powered Helicopters. The rejection of the magnets takes care of the movement of the propellors.
As you can see on the photo, in this article, the darkgreen ribbons transport the movement from the little red gear wheels to the propellors and these little red gear wheels are supported by the big blue gear wheel, containing the rejecting (yellow) magnets.
B. Magnetic Bullet TransportIn the barrel of a gun you will find a spiral-shaped carve to let a bullet leave the gun in a straight line. The bullet twirls along his width-axis, has no trouble with air resistance and keeps on track. This phenomena is seen in the movie Matrix-part 1.
Putting magnets between the spiral-shaped carve of a barrel and putting magnets on a bullet (also spiral-shaped), the bullet should move ahead, just by the rejection of both magnet-groups. As you can see on the photo, in this article, magnets (yellow marks) are not put on the bullet spiral-shaped, but in a straight line (orange line) and so this bullet will never move ahead, just twirl along his width-axis.
When goods are delivered, in containers in a harbour, they can be put in a half open bullet (1, 2 or 4 containers). The bullet is found a few feet underground, in front of a barrel. The bullet than gets closed and the bullet is shifted into the beginning of that onderground barrel. Now the journey of the bullet begins through the barrel where speed is not the must important issue. Once the bullet reaches his endstation (City A), speed is slowed down, the bullet is opened and the containers can be recovered.
Maybe City A is not the final destination and the bullet has to change direction at an “intersection”. If so (Change of direction by 90 degrees left or right), the bullet stays closed, will be lifted manually, the direction will be changed and the bullet will be put at the beginning of a new barrel, destination City B.
As we know, wind turbines already deliver us electricity, just by using the power of wind. And, after checking several encyclopedia, I found a lot of photo’s of different kind of windmills. They can be divided into two different types.
First we have the Darrieus-type windmill with a vertical axe, that will provide 1,6 kW of electricity in one hour. Those kind of windmills are also seen in the drawings of the Das-brothers, two Dutch brothers who are engineer and create marvellous painted pictures of their near-future ideas. Another kind of windmill you can find at NASA-websites and provide about 100.000 watt of electricity.
Using the construction of the MPE, it might be possible to increase the power, created by those two windmill-types, by 6,5 times.
The watermill is a marvellous invention of our ancesters : by using the power of water they let a millstone grind grain. The people of the Netherlands also use this system to pump up water from lower to higher areas to keep Holland dry (Archimedes' screw). And using the technique of the MPE in a watermill, it might run a dynamo 6,5 times more fast.
Some scholars found out that more power is generated when water falls onto the blades of the wheel of a watermill (mountain creeks) instead of flowing underneath the blades of the wheel (Streaming creek). When the blades of a watermill wheel should be replaced by spoonshaped bassins, the watermill could be run by collecting rain water. The weight of captured rain water let the watermill wheel run and when the spoonshaped bassins reach ground level, rain water runs into the local creek. This kind of watermills could be used in countries which suffer from monsoons.
Not only rain is called falling water. The wheel of a watermill can also run by the falling water, coming from waterfalls and fountains. Pumping up water into watertowers provide houses and appartments clean tap water and let fountains dance (Las Vegas). The only way out, for all this water, is straight down and could be used to run watermills.
Everybody knows solar cells. Attachted on rooftops, they provide a house enough energy for warmth and light. I am not quiet familiar how they work but today solar cells are not yet a mass-production product. And maybe they provide power for a single house or warm up a single pool, but to power up an entire village, city or country they still fail.
Of course man can find solar cells in small calculators or parking meters and it might be possible to build solar cells into the lamps, along the highways. Using magnifying glass, might enlarge the amount of light.
A time ago, magazines and documentairies brought out the news of a new kind of powersource, called a Tide Motor. Influenced by the moon we have tides on Earth. The ebb tide and the high tide provides flows in the oceans. Scientists and engineers are trying to use these flows to get clean energy. Tide motors now run, a few feet under the ocean’s surface at a few 100 miles off shore and Tide motors are build into cliffs, where seawater constantly overflows them (Scotland).
Twirling Water Power
Tornados produce an enormous kind of power, especially at their outer limits. This phenomena also appears in twirling water, where water molecules move at an enormous speed. When using a closed round rustfree tank with, at the bottom of that tank, a Semicylinder, containing small propellors, men can speed up water, especially at the outer limits of that watertank.
In this twirling water man can put in a big propellor or some kind of gear wheel. The power, produced by the twirling water, is now transplanted to a dynamo, using the same construction as the MPE (Magnetics are replaced by the twirling water).
Of course to start up, one needs power. Maybe 20 watt is needed to start up the semicylinder, standing in the water, but at the end 100 watt of electricity might be the result. Now you have a 80 watt profit. But you have to remember that you always will need 20 watt to keep the system working.
The Propellor Mill
The propellor is a mighty invention of our ancestors. It made flying possible aside the birds and lifted up heavy machinery like aeroplanes and helikopters. We also know the power of streaming water and how it provides power for our watermills.
Combine those two ideas and get clean energy. Let streaming water run through propellers, build into the piles of bridges, so they can transport that power to a dynamo and use the construction of the MPE to increase the amount of energy by 6,5 times.
To save little riveranimals from being sucked up by the propellers in the piles of bridges, a fine maze might prevent them from a horrible death in the river. The fine maze could also be used as a filter against trash in the water.
Shark Fin Propellor Mill
Propellors send boats and ships over the oceans. But, at the rear side of those vessels, sea wildlife is disturbed by the twirling water. Dutch engineers now came with the idea to use the movements of sharks (the way they use their fins and tail) to move on boats over the water. Using this technique is translated in a higher powerprofit.
Building a Shark Fin Propellor into the piles of bridges, instead of a common propellor, might result into getting more power, coming from a fast streaming river or creek and the water environment would be more safe for local flora and fauna.
Sewer Propellor Mill
Because rural areas rapidly change into suburbs, rainwater no longer runs into meadows, creeks or small canals but is guided asap into sewers. A Propellor Mill and a Shark Fin Propellor Mill can also be used in sewers, tapping power from sewage water.
Propellor Mill in Pipelines
Pumping up water into watertowers provide us with clean tap water and let fountains dance (Las Vegas). But into these pipelines, that brings us the clean water from the watertowers to our tap, are forces we can use to get clean energy. Putting a propellor into those pipelines might generate electric power. To transport the movement of the propellor into the pipelines to a dynamo might be possible if the propellor contains magnets, that are picked up by a gear wheel outside the pipelines. And this gear wheel could run a dynamo. Instead of using a chain or a ribbon to transport the movements of the propellor, we use magnets.
Was it Athens or Sparta and was it Archimedes, Plato or Socrates who invented the hollow mirrors to put fire into enemy wooden boats ?
It’s not so important but the idea to concentrate sunlight into a beam to warming up water, might be a solution to create clean energy. This heat could be transported to a water-basin by a superconductor, so we get steam that runs steamturbines and dynamo’s.
Cooling of the water into a cold chamber might regenerate the water and restart the whole process over again.
Because steam generates power into pipelines, man could put a propellor into those pipelines and generates more power than only the turbines and dynamo’s create, at the end of the process.
During childhood we all played with father’s magnifying glass to burn a little hole in a piece of paper, by concentrating sunbeams. By catching the Sun it could be possible to heat up an element which results in steam, coming from a water-basin, to run steamturbines.
In summertime, when it really gets hot, the last place we want to be is in a greenhouse and when we are obliged to work there, the surrounding glass panels are put wide open to let the heat escape. But how warm must it be when there would be greenhouses in the Sahel countries or at the equator.
Putting green houses in those countries, man could maximize the sun’s warmth and concentrate the heat. Guiding this heat (perhaps by super conductors) to a water-basin could generate steam for steam turbines.
Stones, warmed up in the Sun, will lose their heat over a long period of time. This phenomena is also used in central heating. And grains of sand are nothing more or less then little stones.
Throwing hot grains of sand into a water-basin might provide steam for steamgenerators and later on steam will turn back into water in the “cold room”.
Once the grains of sand have lost their warmth in the water-basin, they are taken away and replaced by new hot grains of sand. At the equator or in the near distance of deserts this kind of new energy might be most profitable.
Weight MillWe all know the Swiss cuckoo clock. By using weights gear wheels let the clock run and the clock tells us time. The gear wheels could be glued to a dynamo or we can use the MPE-technique to transport power to the dynamo, multiplied by 6.5 times.
Man could use a spring to wind up the whole system (like the windup radio) to increase the duration in time. The spring could also be winded up with a windup key. This system could also be build into a cardboard cup to heat up coffee (Hot coffee wakes you up, instead of Ice-Tea).
Using weights or springs, to get power, can also be implemented in water to run the Twirling Water Mill.
The Mist Mill
In a documentary, a time ago, scientists put tennis nets in certain mountain areas, to catch the dew and fog, which was present almost every day of the year. To help the mountain people, the drops, catched into the nets, then where guided to half open plastic pipelines under the nets, bringing clean water to their villages. The water finally was stored into a water-basin.
Because the plastic pipelines were half open, the water was streaming downhill. In these pipelines a small propeller mill or a waterfall mill could be build in to get clean energy. Maybe all this is not enough to light up a complete city, but it could provide electric light into the houses of a small mountain village.
The Mist Mill can be used in areas with a lot of dew and fog, a Rain Mill can be used in areas that suffer from monsoons and Lighning Spheres can be used in areas where mountains are responsible for lightning. Humidity, warmth and the shapes of mountains provides electric discharges. That is all I know about lighting.
I also know that when lightning occurs, it is looking for a way down to Earth and the electric discharges seek the highest point in an area. Putting poles with steel spheres in these areas might catch the electric discharges and transport the power to a place where it can be stored or transformed into safe energy.
The idea of cathing lighting is very old and was tested by our ancesters by using kites.
In the Stone Age man got fire by rubbing a wooden stick on a flat piece of wood. By rubbing both elements there was a warmth reaction causing fire. Recently I saw a documentary about nano-technology, where people where trying to build machines at a very small level. At a molecular level molecules where replaced to build tools and machines, that later on can be used to open far exemple blood vessels and in a certain phase, this technique might create diamants (building up from a molecular level). Creating diamants, so cheap, that they could be used to build houses and cities. Texts have already been written at molecular level (“Bill Sux”), they have achieved to create a wheel and now tracks are constructed to transport molecules at molecular distances. Could it be possible to get some kind of friction at this small level ? Rub molecules against each other to create an enormous kind of heat to make steam out of water and let a steam turbine work.
The Manure Mill
In the Netherlands people are trying to get rid of pig manure by building Pig Towers in the future : Buildings, a few 100 metres high and as width as a few soccer fields. The Dutch think they might need a few thousand buildings all over the Netherlands and they have to be self-supported.
Waste-managment includes a closed system where pig urine will be cleansed by letting it flow through a cane land and the pig manure would be used by local farmers to enrich their crop fields.
The Pig Towers could run on electricity, provided by solar panels at their rooftops. The cleansed urine might run (water)mills and dry manure might heat up water to run steam turbines.
A lot of these ideas were also found in the books of the dutch brothers Das, but the Manure Mill or Pig Towers are not yet to be found in there.
