      I have made cam follower prototype for clean energy cheaper than coal.
      My cam follower is different than todays cam follower.
      In general cam follower,
      cam shaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile.
      In my cam follower,
      1. Follower move up and down and force is applied on cam through follower.(Big Difference)
      2. Follower is not inline with cam center.
      3. Force applied from follower to cam help cam to rotate.
      4. We can decide how much follower move for helping particular length of cam circumference.
      5. Follower down 6 cm with 100 kg and rotate cam of 27 cm at 70 kg.
      6. Input energy we use to move follower is =0.06*100 =6 N-Meter
      7. Out put energy we get on cam = 0.27*70 = 18.9 N-Meter

      I have made video for theoretical explanation of my cam follower system. You can find it below.

      I have made gif file of my cam follower mechanism prototype. So that people can instantly and easily understand it.

      Interesting device.
      Cam "driver" rather than cam "follower" might be a better name for it.
      What is the intended use?
      What would power the push rods, ("followers")?
      What kinds of things would the device power?
