    Generally speaking I would say that this isn't going to be a very effective way to generate electricity.
    Any other ideas ?

    There is no such thing. Plain and simple. You will make fools of yourselves if you try to present something like this at a science fair, sorry to say.

    This may seem like an odd question, but do you come from Bangalore?

    Did you perhaps recently attend a physics show by, maybe, a wild-haired madman with crazy eyes that included bits of a supposed perpetual motion machine? He cleverly disguises that it is a perpetual machine contraption by calling it specifically non-perpetual. Seen this guy?

    Well, if it is the 1st of April then a perpetual motion machine sounds perfect!

    Note: if you go with a "perpetual motion machine" make sure you are using it to demonstrate why such a machine can never work.

    You could build models of some of these: http://www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/museum/unwork.htm and explain why they don't work.

    Which technology did you mention above? This is your first post in this thread. I have some direct experience of diamond anvil processing and may be able to help you, but I would need more information.

    The crazy prices you refer to are not so crazy. The equipment is expensive, running into several million dollars for a unit. The set up, maintenance and operation require a high level of skill and experience. The throughput rate is small. I think your interest in gem quality puts this outside my area of involvement, but I'll take a look at the google recommendations, or if you wish to pm me with more details.

    thanks for your reply first
    what i think it is not about the prices of the machines it is the know how . like there is this new company it is called MIADONNA selling something called hybrid diamond , a new item better then a moissonite and less in quality of a man made or mined diamond . they are making this hybrid diamond out of a seed i guess, what i am saying in plain english i would go as far as it gets just to have the begininig of the thread in hand if i can not go up the ladder in one jump will start with the something like the hybrid thing and i go further .
    thanks again
