Bessler’s Wheel was a possible free energy device developed hundreds of years ago.
In 1712 Johann Bessler exhibited a machine which he claimed drew its energy from gravity. Despite nearly twenty years of the most stringent tests, examinations and public trials, not the slightest sign of deception was ever found. Bessler always maintained that his machine was genuine and there was no convincing evidence to the contrary. He had a number of supporters and among his champions were some of the most respected men of the day. These men included Gottfried Leibniz and Christian Wolff, top scientists of the caliber of Newton.
