Trying to do the impossible

To everyone who reads this, does gravity wheel really works? If it does, can someone give me more information about it?
I am making this for my final thesis.

You'll have to provide a reference to what you mean by "gravity wheel." There have been several claims about perpetual motion machines that use the term, but as your title says: "impossible." There are several videos on YouTube where people post their work in progress, making claims that they're about to have a break through, but they never provide a follow up showing a finished wheel that actually works. Which version are you asking about?

One of the best "gravity wheels" I have seen has papers at each spoke with the number "6", the mass in kg of each point. As the wheel turns clock wise those papers turn over so that on the right side they read "9"! With the greater mass on the right the wheel keeps turning clock wise!
