Following the story about the camphor beetle, can anybody suggest how using a mechanical system (and not the chemical one described above) might be arranged to generate power or extract energy from the surface tension of a liquid? I have tried but its not easy to do this, but it clearly is possible when we consider the cut branch of a tree dripping sap.
