Good.  So you can list these benefits and provide evidence to
demonstrate they really exist and it's not all smoke and mirrors.

Look at the web site. They say more than I do and list all benefits.  And
I'm not Canadian either.

I don't know what canadian has to do with anything. but I can just about
guarantee that if a developed product was available and actually had some
significant benefit, someone would bite on it.  The problem is that no one
is going to bet the farm on such unproven technology when there is proven
technology available.  Maybe when an actual QT powered device of some sort
is actually put on the market and a few hundred thousand of them are in
service for a few years and there is a demonstarted cost/benefit ratio, then
other people will fall into line.  But until there is some real demonstarted
benefit, this is no different than the magnets idiots buy to put on their
fuel lines because some scam artist told them it improves their fuel
economy.

The major auto makers are still locked into fuel cells and hydrogen, etc,
r&d.  They have received large grants to look into this, so they do because
they are being paid to do so.  It appears that the fuel cell will not cut
it - well not within the next 10 years or so.  Governments are getting
irritated at the slow progress these people make - probably dragging their
feet.  Once the focus goes back onto gasoline and diesel and governments
force the makers to improve efficiencies, the they will look up sharp at
other designs.


The concept is sound with a running model.  No one bets the farm as grants
will be available.  The US government has spent a large amount of money of
research into batteries and fuel cell.  this will just be focused elsewhere.


The inventors are not manufacturers.  It needs a large corpn to take it up
and develop it further.  Or some Howard Hughes pours billions into it.  A
Russian billionaire has spent many, many millions on buying an English
soccer club, Chelsea, with a bottomless pit of money for players.  All this
on a whim.  All it needs is someone like hime to finance such a project,
with potential billions coming in when complete.  The soccer club is a big
gamble.  The engine is not so much.


This is no scam magnet nonsense.  No one is claiming any magic here.  Anyone
who understand engineering can see the benefits of the design.  If we are to
stay with the IC engine then this design is more than worthy of further r&d.

Hmm, you mean it must be produced before it is developed? This is
difficult.

The trouble is money. I remember a cooking system which worked and its
development was finished ready for sale. It worked (I saw it). It was
faster and more energy efficient even than induction systems. You even
could save money by significantly reduce your electric bill!!! But.....the
inventor had too little money to launch it as mass production and to
create it cheaper. No one wanted to invest in this even better cooking
system. As an engineer, I must say, this was really frustrating. Even if I
only was emotionally involved in this project.

The problem is not the technology, it is the marketing (money)!

Even if the QT is better than the other technologies. Nobody will buy it
until there aren't REALLY huge benfits (price and efficiency).

@News
Sorry News , for this statement, but this is the reality. As you said,
many idiots spend gazillions for football clubs. Few spend money to
develop smart things. Fellings rulez the world.

Perhaps we should develop a 2000HP QT-Motor. Just for awakening the
feelings?
