Hello, I am new here and I experiment whith this cool piece of software.
I created something, that moves forever when I push to center part towards the springs. It is like "perpetual motion". So I would like to ask you, if there is chance to build something like this in real world with same behaviour? Or does exist any drive which uses the spring in similiar way?
I am noob in physics so I probably do not have enough knowlege about spings behaviour. Thank you for your reply and please don't judge me. Sorry for my English.

sure it's possible to build something like this for real, but it's not "perpetual motion", not in the simulation and not in the real world.

There is always something which slows down bodies, in the simulation and for real its the friction of the bearing, which creates a tiny bit of heat for the moving mass - which slows it down over time, let it run for some minutes and you will see the difference. In the real world there would also be air resistance which slows it down.
Infinity is vast, especially near end.
bye, Lynxx
