Amidst the artifacts housed at The Royal Society is a curious device purporting to be a perpetual motion machine. The creation of the late British researcher and writer David Jones (also known as Daedalus), the secret of how this machine gives the delusion of perpetual motion has yet to be unveiled. Archivist Virginia Mills shares the backstory of this mystery and Adam takes a crack at finding how this unlikely invention really works!
