"LEGO Perpetual Motion" Hoax
In February of 2009, Tom Altman(?) posted a video on YouTube showing magnets around a wheel with an inductive coil supposedly firing from the incoming magnetic flux to kick the magnet along in a perpetual motion. He then posted a 20-minute time-lapse video showing it running. Finally, he showed a video in which he revealed a capacitor under the aparatus that was being charged by the computer fan motor, and the capacitor was giving the inpulse to the coil -- which would have also been a free energy paradigm. He referred to a circuit at http://home.earthlink.net/~lenyr/magkick.htm as describing his mechanism.
It turns out, though, that the capacitor had been pre-charged, and was serving as the energy storage mechanism, and that the device ultimately ran down. It was not harvesting free energy from the environment.

"I wouldn't refer to it as "wasting time". His device works, just it's not perpetual motion. Some of the concepts from it seem like they could be used in a real magnet motor."
