I agree with this sentiment.
It would be better for everyone if these theoretical projects were
actually built and tested, with all data posted, before someone
invests their time and money for construction and then finds out that
the return on investment is insufficient.
There are times when practice does not fulfill, what theory promises.

Well, the design is made public through this forum and it doesn't
look like a demonstration/test version would be either difficult
or expensive to build. Anyone could build it and tell us how it
does or does not perform. It need not be Nick. Certainly, there
must be someone with enough time on their hands to do such a thing.

Nick posted a theory. What is wrong with that? A theory that others may
take up in full or partially, or spark somthing in their mind. Nick is a
thinker and thinks out loud. Nothing wrong with that at all. I like
The problem is he writes like a "who done it". You have to read it all to
find out what it does at the end, just like Agatha Christie.

Nick is a talker. That's all. He talks and talks and talks. Then expects
someone to build one of his pipe dreams.
If someone does build something Nick proposed and it does not work as
per Nick's projections he can always say "Well I only said "Might"
"Could" "If" "Maybe" "Somehow" so its not my fault it doesn't work. It
was just an idea.

Just don't let him near any tools or some one could get hurt.

That's not true.. i remember a couple of years back Nick was doing
some alterations to a cabin in the woods. IIRC, He had a problem with
the board who operated the cabin for his extensive renovations
