Excuse me but "Smoke and mirrors" is an Orbital engine marketing practice
and they wouldn't like it if someone else used it.

I saw that video, and it *was* pathetic.  It was operating as an air
motor, and it was so weak that the chainsaw barely scratched the
surface of the log.  As fas as I can tell, Gilles has never operated
the Quasiturbine as an IC engine.  And given its Rube Goldberg design,
my bet is that it never will operate as an IC engine.

The ignition system:
Photonic igintion (light ignition)

How does it work?  How do you get light into a chamber?  And how does it
ignite the fuel?

Or am I missing something?

A minor mistake. It says Fleix Wankel had his first engine working in 1957,
but took another 20 years for it to be in a car.  Then it talks about how
the fuel thirsty Mazdas didn't fair well in the 1973 fuel crisis - 16 years.
Some figures out there.

The first Wankel engine in a car was around 1963/64.  The NUS Ro80 was 1967.
A car in style, design and many other aspects that was 20 years ahead  -
forget its Wankel engine that was not developed properly and released far
too soon.
