Canadian's Machine Turns Gravity into Power
Bob Kostoff has created a self-sustaining engine that says would cost less than half of a small wind turbine. The machine works much like a teeter-totter, using a series of sliding weights that, with the help of the earths gravitational pull, force the unit to continue spinning around in a circle.
