Using perpetual motion to pump water

A limitless source of power has been tapped by South Africa’s Roundabout.  They’ve created a well pump driven by a merry-go-round.  As the children play, pushing the merry-go-round, a pump pulls water up from the ground into a storage tank.

Say, that reminds me…

Emeka, the matrix has you.
