An open source project launched by PES Network, January 5, 2012 based on the diagram at the right, which is described in our launch story at PESN.

Once we get verification, we can help prepare a set of clear plans for download for a small fee, to provide another revenue source for the inventor, shared also with PES, and with any affiliates who help disseminate it. PES can use that revenue to help compensate those who help with things like diagrams, parts lists, business tips, etc. And we can use the revenue to help other inventors move forward with their promising exotic free energy devices.

We'll also ask that a small royalty (e.g. 5%) be paid for all commercial ventures that spring from the project, and we'll split that with the inventor as well.

Murilo Luciano of Brazil said that he originated this idea a decade ago. See There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] below.

How It Works

There are two cogs in a vertical arrangement mounted on bearings, so each can spin freely. The top cog has larger spacing than the bottom one of same diameter, and contains extensions, gear teeth, or short arms of some kind. The lower cog contains a greater number of hook-like extensions. 

A chain composed of a large number of links (he describes them as being similar to links in a bicycle chain) are connected around the two cogs. When the system is allowed to operate, the difference between the cogs -- apparently due to a gearing effect -- creates an imbalance of chain links on one side. This produces an unbalanced load, so there is more weight on one side than the other. The result of this unbalanced load is alleged to be continuous rotation that can be harnessed to produce "free energy."

Not shown in the above diagram is a set of walls that are used on each side of the ascending and descending chains, to keep them in line and at a given width. There is also a wall that goes around the bottom to help keep the chain from falling off the cogs, which have a small hook on them as well. The rollers connecting the chain links need to be able to rotate to allow movement along the walls.

You have to have the top and bottom cogs geared together, e.g. through a chain on the back side.

Also, it is important to use very good bearings on this device, because there is a huge radial load on them. Good bearings will make the system last longer, and increase the output.

It is asserted to be simple to create electricity with this device. All you would have to do is attach a generator to one of the spinning cogs. The mechanical power would then be converted into electricity.

On the descending side, even though the images portray the gears collapsed and touching each other, this would not be desirable of they are running along a wall enclosure, because the touching wheels of adjoining gears would be rubbing in opposite direction of one another so you would need to have spacing between them to keep this opposite interaction from happening.


This one doesn't make sense to most of us. Where does the energy come from? Don't you have to first elevate something in order to harness gravity?

Avalanche Drive - Murilo Luciano has put a lot of effort into it and really does believe in it. He has not built a working prototype yet.

Subject: Re: Avalanche Drive = Avalanchedrive

Sterling, hi!

Very nice to hear from you, since in the past I tried to be in contact.

At a few minutes, I have been in your site and I left a msg to that anonymous ‘inventor and business man’.

He’s not able to even copy my conception and to defend any technical contest about!

For many years I deal to this project – I call it Avalanchedrive - which I turned to public dominion.

I’m absolutely sure that it will work!

In all this time, I was not able to find serious technical partners, or people that could do more than I could by myself, up to now.

All matter I publish is absolutely clear and nothing is on darkness... no tricks... everything is under light... maybe too much light for some eyes...

Everything I need, Sterling, is a true computer modeling and simulation, but made by people able to deal to mechanics, not just skilled nerd boys.

A simulation will be much easier to deal than a hard model... and you can be sure about this: it will turn!

Under my view, and in the view of others, this device has not how to not turn, strongly and fast!

As you may guess, many more can be done after this hard surface has been scratched.

I’ll be back to your site and I’ll send a response to a reader from Japan.

Before any simulation there are some ‘last words’ to be considered, ok?

Thanks and best regards!

Subject: Graillat gravity wheel

Dear [Sterling] Allan,

Thank you for your wonderful work at

I was introduced to the concept of "free energy" back in '94 by John D. Wendell, a friend and inventor, and have since then kept an interest in the subject. The movie Thrive recently renewed this interest, and led me to discover, which, finding it wonderfully rich in quality content, I have been following ever since with great attention.

In particular, I was much enthused by your article on the chain drive gravity machine, which you published at the start of this month. Unfortunately, although the concept is relatively simple, building it still seems too complicated to do "at home", which might explain the lack of anything happening under the corresponding open source project, on peswiki.

Today, after reading Hank's recent interview of Claude Thiebaut, I went on to investigate the latter's own web site, and found mention of a gravity engine ( by Alain Graillat, a French inventor. This article contained no technical information, but some googleing brought up another article, by another engineer/inventor: a reconstruction of Graillat's engine based on what scant information that was revealed (I believe in a newspaper article), This proposition, exploiting a differential of couple generated between two decentralized wheels, struck me as much simpler to build than the gravity chain, with comparatively very few parts. So I thought, if you created an open source project for the chain drive, would you do the same for this idea?

The article, like other interesting ones by the same author (notably on other types of gravity wheels), is unfortunately in French. Would this be the reason it I could find no mention of it in peswiki?

Best regards,

Samuel de Rougemont

Geneva, Switzerland

P.S. Although I would love to be able to understand all the equations, the physics involved and to evaluate the various propositions' feasibility myself, or even to build and experiment with them, I am only a web developer with none of the tools or knowledge required.
