300hp and it's the size of a coffee can... the bigger the more power....
Runs on ANYTHING

That engine is another equally impressive design. From my understanding, that engine has never been hooked up to a dynometer and therefore the
performance characteristics of the engine are only estimates. I think that has been the weak point of the engine and the reason for all the delays.
The inventor should have simply produced another prototype despite the $100,000+ cost of such a thing.
But yes, its a very good engine, and I'm very disappointed it still isn't under production. I tried to convince the inventor he should first sell
his invention as an air compressor (because its well proven to be an amazing device in that regard and can therefore ). However, he did not listen to
me. Well, he is getting old and I hope he gets it off the ground before he retires. Look at the Moller Skycar (a "flying car") on Youtube. Yeah its
amazing and it worked in tests, but the inventor is also getting old and the invention still isn't under regular production. Sadly, big dreamers and
big inventors often somehow lack the practical force required to get their inventions produced in a timely manner so they can actually cash in on the
ideas. I suffer from the same issue. I've reduced myself to working on websites because I know I can, given enough time, actually finish a few.
Getting an invention to market takes incredible amounts of willpower and effort. That effort is something most inventors don't end up doing because
there are so many unexplored ideas to focus energy on that are much more exciting than simply churning out an existing idea.
Its ridiculous that there are not *well known* companies structured to actually remove all the effort behind those inventions. A key problem is that
most of the success in a company is typically in marketing, not innovation (ie Microsoft). If their focus was invention they would not be successful.
If Microsoft's focus was on producing amazing bug-free software they would have never taken off. For the same reason, the Moller Skycar, the Angel
Labs engine, and the engine shown on this post have enormous obstacles to ever take off even if we ignore the fact the oil companies would in fact
not want such an engine to be on the market!
