    So does the weight slowly lower, and create energy, until it hits the ground?
    Kind of like my grandma's cuckoo clock?

    Gravity is a form of kenetic energy, (magnetic movement) or piezoelectric, using vibrations or movement as a form of energy for providing power, electrcity, or light. The same way you can walk and use that energy to charge your cell phone.

    Here is another example of magnetic movement.

    "VIRTSIM, the next innovation in tactical police and military training, was unveiled Friday morning in an east Plano warehouse owned by Raytheon. To date, the technology has been sold to the FBI, and has also been used by U.S. armed forces, U.S. Marshals and police departments in cities such as Plano and Frisco."

    “Aisen Chacin, a student at Parsons’ The New School for Design in New York, created a unique way to listen to music via “bone conduction” through your skull. Chacin’s invention came when he attached a vibrating motor to a digital music player, and then connected the player to a mold of her upper teeth. Chacin also included controls on the underside of the mouthpiece so users can more easily change songs and volume by pushing up with their tongues. Through the vibrations, users can hear music clearly without the use of headphones. But if the music is loud enough, surrounding people can hear music playing from the users’ mouths.”

    "Touch the BattleProd anywhere on the rod (front, sides, etc.), and you're goin' down like a sack a' potatoes. It gives you 3-5 million volts of compliance-inducing electricity either in your hand (handheld variant) or at the end of your weapon (rifle/carbine, weapon-mountable variant)."

    “With the aim of being up to fifty per cent lighter than conventional chemical battery packs used by British infantry, the solar and thermoelectric-powered system could make an important contribution to future military operations. The system’s innovative combination of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, thermoelectric devices and leading-edge energy storage technology will provide a reliable power supply round-the-clock, just like a normal battery pack. The team is also investigating ways of managing, storing and utilising heat produced by the system. Because it is much lighter, the system will improve soldiers’ mobility. Moreover, by eliminating the need to return to base regularly to recharge batteries, it will increase the potential range and duration of infantry operations. It will also absorb energy across the electromagnetic spectrum, making infantry less liable to detection by night vision equipment that uses infra-red technology, for instance.”

    “Wind turbines could also provide drinking water in humid climates following a breakthrough by a French engineering firm. Eole Water modified your typical electricity-generating turbines to allow them to distill drinking water out of the air in a bid to help developing countries solve their water needs.”

    “The goal of the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab is to harness features of animal manipulation, locomotion, sensing, actuation, mechanics, dynamics, and control strategies to radically improve millirobot capabilities. Research in the lab ranges from fundamental understanding of mechanical principles to novel fabrication techniques to system integration of autonomous millirobots.”
