Perpetual motion machines

TePP periodically receives proposals for development of perpetual motion machines. We advise innovators to prove their new theory by referring same to peer referred journals. TePP is not competent to judge veracity of new theories. Apparently, devices such as these have been in popping up in news for a long time and are called perpetual motion devices. The US patent office however, discourages such claims and has issued a policy not to grant patent without seeing a working model. According Wikipedia no such device has been proven to exist.

If any one has knowledge of perpetual motion device in working, pl share with us.
