Question: Ways to power a generator with weights?

Answer: There are many, many ways to power a generator using weights. The most common methods used will involve an electric generator or alternator. Any setup you can conceive of that involves a turning motion for the generator/alternator shaft will work just fine. This could involve both hanging weights similar to grandfather clocks or weightlifting systems. Basically all you need to do is connect the weight to the rotator shaft in whatever fashion you like. Below is a simple example constructed out of lego parts.
