Google is cancelling its highly successful Perpetual Motion Project, which yielded a functional machine capable of violating the laws of thermodynamics, and thus providing civilization with an unlimited power supply for all of time.
The machine, called the Googletron, consisted of several rotating gears attached to a central 'whirlygig' which, when set in motion ran without stopping indefinitely. When a generator was attached, the Googletron generated 600 kilowatts.
After the successful test of the machine, it was immediately dismantled and put in long term storage.
'We feel that our efforts would be better focused on other more relevant projects, like Google Dirt.' said Google Senior Vice President Alan Eustace.
Google Dirt is a new application similar to Google Earth, but instead of showing rich visuals of the entire planet, it simply creates a virtual experience of having one's face shoved into the ground.
Some scientists were disappointed at Google's decision to pull the plug on the project, arguing that the machine could have provided unlimited power for all mankind, without any pollution.
'We need to focus on projects that show the most promise and not every venture can be continued indefinitely, even if it is the answer to all the world's problems.' Eustace said.
