Is it possible for it to perform such loop? Yes.
Is it possible for it to do so indefinitely? No.

It is possible to create a substantially long loop (time-wise) but the system will lose energy gradually on each iteration.

Requirements to do this:   
-perfect vacuum environment   
-three frictionless glasses   
-a frictionless ball   
-two meter sticks (for measuring my dick)

tfw friction makes this impossible to do indefinitely

This would be impossible unless it were in a frictionless environment where gravity still existed.  Even if they had a frictionless vacuum, it would still be tough to get the angles of the glasses to be perfect.   
   
Science out, bitches.

+ friction

seriously guys... someone would have done it by now if it were possible...

A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law

Not unless you could completely eliminate friction

its a theoretical perpetual motion device.

it takes place in a vacuum with frictionless ball/glass
#188 - sickpuppie (06/21/2013) [-]
Yes, but, as others have said, it would eventually slow because it is not friction-less. It will not be an endless loop

Look at these comments. People have been led to think they're smart because they already know there's no such thing as a perpetual motion machine.

Could it be possible to motorize the ball with a free-spinning band through the center. Combined with the momentum from falling already it could be geared high enough that it should be able to keep the speed of the ball stable. Then you would simply need to fit a gyroscope inside as well to make sure the spinning band is the section that always makes contact with the ground.

maybe?

If you follow it, you'll notice that it makes a form.

It forms a penis.

Not possible because of a little thing I like to call friction.

Horray! Frictionless environment.
