This is my cam follower prototype for clean energy cheaper than coal. Cam is used to open and close valve of internal combustion engine. I am going to show you another use. In my cam follower system,
1. Follower is off set.
2. Force is applied from follower to cam. Since the follower is off set this force help cam to rotate.
3. We use energy(Input energy) to move follower and get energy(output energy) on cam.
4.Follower move down less and help cam to rotate 6 times length of follower displacement at 70 % force. So output energy is 3 times of input energy. You can find research description and prototype video at http://mechanicalresearch.info/
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
