500hp 2 cycle engine that defies physics

I didn't watch the whole thing but its still pretty amazing. As far as can tell it runs by smashing atoms together. An atomic engine.

WOW, EXXON MOBIL IS GOING TO HAVE THAT GUY KILLED.

I am sure that would be a very good engine, but non profitable for the big companies, so we will never see it under this system of things.

Holy crap... directional energy and light output. You would technically need a long accelerator to move an electron or its reaction in a single direction??? HOLY CRAP IS RIGHT....
Anyone ever heard of antimatter?

And this engine is cheaper to build... cheaper to maintain.... and cheaper to fuel. I wonder if this dude needs an investor?? I would be glad to help out.

As long as he does not vanish off the face of the Earth anytime soon.... :0/

I would not call BS just yet. Maybe the guy has trouble explaining things.
I have seen some really wicked/odd off the wall experimental crap that people build at the engineering dept at FIU.

One of the things that they made was a protein based optical disk. Think CD, but with double digit GB capacity.

^^ another university doing the same thing.

3-Dimensional Optical Memories-
Three-dimensional optical memory storage offers significant promise for the development of a new generation of ultra-high density RAMs (Birge, Computer, 63). One of the keys to this process lies in the ability of the protein to occupy different three-dimensional shapes and form cubic matrices in a polymer gel, allowing for truly three-dimensional memory storage. The other major component in the process lies in the use of a two-photon laser process to read and write data. As discussed earlier, storage capacity in two-dimensional optical memories is is limited to approximately 1/lambda2 (lambda = wavelength of light), which comes out to approximately 108 bits per square centimeter. Three-dimensional memories, however, can store data at approximately 1/lambda3, which yields densities of 1011 to 1013 bits per cubic centimeter. The memory storage scheme which we will focus on, proposed by Robert Birge in Computer (Nov. 1992), is designed to store up to 18 gigabytes within a data storage system with dimensions of 1.6 cm * 1.6 cm * 2 cm. Bear in mind, this memory capacity is well below the theoretical maximum limit of 512 gigabytes for the the same volume (5-cm3).

If it means, I won't have to fork over 2.65 for a gal of petro....

then sign me up for crazy.

He said something about positrons (which is antimatter) slamming into electrons and each cycle uses one atom. I think that engine uses nobles gases. What I question is if it goes against physics why do you suppose they spent all this time and money to make one? Oh yea wouldn't two atoms hitting each other be nuclear fusion. I would never go near that thing they can't even fully explain why it works.

ive gone through 25 minutes of this stuff and the whole thing seems really far fetched...i hear what he is saying, but i dont see how they can transfer the motion the engine is making to real WHEEL horsepower, and considering some of these videos are almost 20 years old, it doesnt look like anything real has come out of these inventions
