Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine

We all waste energy & electricity, but the Polish have created a machine that does the job for us (The idea amused me greatly!). The "Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine" is a rope and pulley mechanism which moves an elevator continuously between the 1st and 2nd floor of a building in a infinite loop. The number of kilojoules are printed out straight into a wastepaper bin. This piece of art is truly a waste of time, and represents how much energy we waste and how little we care. Or don't care. The results are fascinating so give the short video a watch and maybe turn off your plugs when you leave the room!
