A Perpetual Motion Machine of the Third Kind is a device which has a component that can keep moving forever. An example is a superconducting ring in which an electric current can flow indefinitely once started. Other examples are the planets and stars that move throughout the universe and will continue to move until they are stopped by some natural cause. This kind of device is clearly not impossible.



  • I really like this – very intriguing, and the colour is great. What makes it for me is the point of clarity at the top of the sphere – the almost sharp reflection of something(?)

  • Cool. Keeps making my mind try to figure out how you set this up. Is the camera shooting up into the moving ball?

  • The fluid shapes and colours are excellent – great work..
