    I am in a competition to build a new clock
    I made a wind up clock charge usb devices
    Now I have put a 6 volt motor attached to a usb on a self winding clock
    and made the device work indefinitely
    Here is an example
    The competition offer $15,000 and for the clock to be manufactured

    I am hoping someone will perfect what I made so it looks professional when
    I present it in the competition

    If anyone wants to help please respond at
    and I can give fill details

    Thank you for reading

    Reading your explanation of torque in the follow up video it is apparent that you live in a world with alternate laws of mechanics and physics to those that prevail locally. Torque is not a distance.

    I think he is trying to create a perpetual motion machine.
    Should he actually succeed. I'm sure he can get more than
    $15,000 for it.
    Since it won't work, I wouldn't waste more than the time
    to reply.
    I recall as a young experimenter, I couldn't understand, at first,
    why I couldn't take a surplus motor generator and take the high
    voltage output to run the low voltage input with left over voltage
    to run something else.
    I then learned about the power part of the equation.
    Oh well, back to the drawing board.
