A brief review of the status of the second law of thermodynamics examines the possibility of overcoming the notorious ?information? deficit that invalidates the famous ?Szilard Engine?. A simple mechanical arrangement is described which enables a recursive, self-regulating cycle to occur in a cylinder of rarified gas without additional information input. Although theoretical, the design is also notably more practicable than previous attempts.
