In this article, authors focus on the design and construction of a real prototype of an engine mechanism with rotating cylinders and its using mainly in piston combustion engines. It is assumed, that the normal force of a piston will be completely eliminated, because the swing angle of a connecting rod will equal to zero during the whole working cycle, since the connecting arm of the piston moves just the cylinder axis. It will by allowed by the conceptual design of the mechanism presented in this article. As rotating blocks of cylinders concurrently act as a flywheel, it is proposed, that in this way there is possible to save the mass of additional flywheels. Moreover, liquid cooling system is not necessary, because the rotating cylinders sufficiently transfer heat to ambient air. In addition, the output of torque will be reached without necessity of gear transmission, which results to decreasing of needs of mechanism lubrication. Other advance of the designed mechanism are two outputs. The first output is low-speed and it goes out from rotating cylinders, i. e. from the slider-crank mechanism with revolutions n1. The other output is high-speed, from the crankshaft with revolutions n2. Because of more favourable properties of the mechanism, authors have decided to create a real device to confirm all mentioned advantages of the mechanism by the suitable way.
