What does LULZ think about this technology?
Presumably some well meaning undergrad wants to use this to make electricity and save Gaia from CARBON! but has not yet actually done any math to determine the actual output of such a system. These gimmicks have been floating around for years and years.
This just looks like some sort of automatic unpowered sump. Any vessel or under water level wall that had one of these could pump water out just due to the motion of the waves against the pipe.
Jesus christ, you are obsessed and buck broken.
Why are you dumping shaming language like he came at you personally?
>dumping shaming language
Jfc end your life lel
As if. Every time a lefty twat accuses you of being obsessed you just know they're absolutely seething.
Yeah, a good rule of thumb
guarantee the ancients already implemented and used it before
Why not just use a dam
The idea is to passively pump water out of a dam.
I think it's just a concept, doesn't have to be used on a dam.
why not just use the kinetic energy of the wave to power something directly?
Loads of people tried but nobody has come up with a way to generate any significant amount of energy from waves.
It's still interesting to try yourself though, as a fun challenge.
They did, pic related
and what provides the energy to create the slosh? energy isn't free. it all comes from somewhere.
ocean waves or diving boards at public pools
yes but what provides the slosh in the ladder part
>software engineers are real engineers
If this is a tidal time scale, nothing since you're dissolving and releasing gas continuously. The design is not merely pointlessly complex, but doesn't function.
It uses waves, not tides.
It's a pump, not a generator.
6 hours into the thread and you're the first one to actually understand it correctly
what a fucking joke this board is lol
You mean to tell me this is LULZ - computer homosexuals and not LULZ - civil engineering?
You're just increasing entropy in the ocean then.
i want to stick my dick in the inlet pipe
can we use such a device to harvest the energy of coomers?
>sea goes back
>water above it rises
very bad autismo puzzle
Can't you just use a water wheel with a ratchet?
>Water level lowers
>Pump loses prime and stops working
>Water level rises
>Pump siphons water the wrong way until water level drops below the feed tube, at which point it loses prime and stops working
>He thinks the slow tide can move a generator
the primary barrier to tidal power is that the geographic locations where it works have such extreme tides they quickly destroy the equipment (eg Bay of Fundy)
converting energy from a wave vs energy from a liquid flow, not the same thing
this does not address the fundamental problem of power transfer which is stability, which to this day is only solved by the inertia of MASSIVE fucking generators & steam turbines that are able to resist rapid changes thanks to their weight. wind turbines does not solve this, solar panels does not solve this.
works great, good thing sea water is super clean and doesn't ever damage all those turbines!
Hippy commie homosexuals will never let it happen because a fish might die
What's moving the water on the left?
your mom taking a dip in the ocean
wave power generation is a conspiracy to slow down the gulf stream. their goal is to to freeze europe to death. wake up sheeple.
what about the tidal anchor/wave generators from destiny 2 (sorry i am retarded)
damn, people will try anything to avoid using nuclear
It is le bad, member, in Russia one blew up and now Europa has massive immigration problems
Also white supremacists could use the water to make an atomic bomb, it's the same material duh, and no-one does any effort to tell/teach people otherwise.
Humanity is too dumb to deserve something so good
>No description about the context
Why do you want to pump water with moving water?
>water compressing like that
>only the convenient side of the buckets move
this is an optical illusion. it'd never work like this. maybe if you had an outflow valve for the air or a hatch for the water and just use the vacuum.
It's not compressing, and it's using the vacuum on the exit side. Note the lower left tube is not for water to leave, the small one up top is.
look at the water in the buckets. all levels should be pushed outwards by the pressure from high tide, but only half of the buckets are animated. in reality, it would just keep moving the water side to side, not actually ever up
The wider sides move much less than the narrow side. This is accurately portrayed.
as I said, it's a clever trick. an illusion.
It's not, but it's fine you don't understand
Seems cool but I can't tell if that gif is an accurate representation of the physics and therefore if it works or not
ah, that explains why this board is full of wintards, itoddlers, and gaymers. 90% of this thread is too retarded to understand what the OP contraption even does. i failed high school and still figured out what it is for. LULZ is dead
It's not a pump
