Anti-Gravity Wheel?

Explanation of gyro precession: http://bit.ly/U4e8HQ More: http://bit.ly/GyroMORE Less Than: http://bit.ly/GyroLESS Equal To: http://bit.ly/GyroEQUAL Huge thanks to A/Prof Emeritus Rod Cross, Helen Georgiou for filming, Alex Yeung, and Chris Stewart, the University of Sydney Mechanical Engineering shop, Duncan and co. Ralph and the School of Physics. In this video I attempt to lift a 19kg (42 lbs) wheel over my head one-handed while it's spinning at a few thousand RPM. This replicates an earlier experiment by Professor Eric Laithwaite. He claimed the wheel was 'light as a feather' and could not be explained by Newton's Laws. I wanted to find out for myself what I really felt like. Music By Kevin MacLeod www.Incompetech.com "Tempting Secrets"

Try smarter, not harder! You could be anyone in pro lifting if they allowed this. Brains>brawn!!

линия проделанный 10 кг маховиком-6м умноженный на силу вращения вкруг человека-где то 10н-итого 60дж и кушать труд по поднятию маховика на 0,5м. ничто не берётся из ничего!

This is reactless propulsion ! Combine it in the right way and you will get the reason for UFO sightings. Someone already uses it. No joke ! So you can forget the U of UFO. And Aliens too.

Gowardhan parvat bhee is I techniques sey uthaya gaya tha ,usmay upar sudarshan chakra ghoom raha tha ,simple this technique is very very intelligent and known by lord Krishna five thousands year ago No literature founded ever written of western countries beyond five thousands year ago So simply every knowledge is coming from Veda's because Veda's are found ever written evidence of humankind's knowledge worldwide

So funciona na terra pois faz uma força contraria em um lugar sem gravidade e totalmente inutil nao serve em um foguete ou estaçao espacial
u are mad dude...that was EXTREMELY dangerous and stpd....u neednt to risk an arm or even you life if something went SUCH wrong....just 2 show us this....look morphy law EXISTS and if it would "visited you JUST A BIT" doing that u could easy died...but VERY EASY....or like said lost an arm AND U KNOW IT....just with the bearing cought tasked at an important speed or maximum your wrist, your shoulder and perhaps neck would be severely damaged by an instant 3rd degree lever loaded with no less than 1400kg of force at the end MAYBE MUCH MORE .
.... and believe me: the best quality bearings ALSO FAIL AND STOP ... nor crazy do what you have shown here without a very, very very reason NECESSARY OF LIFE OR DEATH OR FOR ANY REASON OF DESIGN OR CONSTRUCTION TOTALLY IN AVOIDABLE --- EVADIBLE ....no matter if they are titanium rods perfectly radiographed EVEN IF WAS ME WHOM MANUFACTURED IT I WOULD RISK A JAM OF THEM WITH SUCH GIANT VALUES OF WEIGHT AND VALUE OF TORQUE JUST "" SUPPORTED "" BY MY POOR WRIST

Gravitational force is particle of God.....Nobody could catch it like air.......This two power lies in whole universe.... We can overcome our weight only by meditation and perfect concentration and we can fly too.....!!!!!!

For a real anti-gravity engine you need a huge amount of energy. This engine will work really on gyro principles. There is a solution to this problem, but nobody sees this yet.

That was good but can u do it with your hand still?
Mr. A (21 days ago)
What about your weight , was it equal . I think it will be equal
Wolfgang Breitenseher (21 days ago)
This is because the symetrical object in spinning motion isnt connected to earth anymore but to the universe. :) The alignment of electrons changes so rapidly, that gravitational effects are secondary.

Maybe if he spun it fast enough it would take him to the moon.

I'm wondering if there was a second flywheel next to the first flywheel spinning in the opposite direction... spinning the same speed as the first flywheel, what would happen. Sings: what goes up, must come down. Spinnin' wheel got to go round. Talkin,' bout your troubles, it's a cryin' sin. Ride a painted pony, let the spinnin' wheel spin

Need a wheel on each side and spin them the opacit direction.

Did some dumbass really make this just to define the laws of physics, to DUMBASS kids
Al Kraus (26 days ago)
What would happen with TWO flywheels on the end of that shaft spinning in OPPOSITE directions???
Here's what's happening, retards. The spinning wheel has stored kinetic energy. The wheel comes into contact with the bar and imparts some of its energy due to friction. Therefore, when the bar touches the wheel in one direction, the wheel pushes it up, and when the bar touches the wheel in the other direction, it pushes it down.

Why this idiot wasted 30 seconds waiting for the momentum n speed of the wheel to drop instead of lifting the wheel immediately

sunshineo23 (29 days ago)
It is counter-intuitive but then think about it if you put it on a slop it will climb up itself a long way until it slows down. Then it is less impressive. Yeah it's lighter because it is lifting itself while losing energy
pari saneie (29 days ago)
how about if it was 50kg? could u lift it??

I did this too the shovel when I hold the shovel with one hand and do it horizontally it so hard but when I spin my self around with the shovel it goes up it it’s like weightless now I don’t feel the heaviness
