Anyone working with computers, back in the days of Atari and computer software companies like Microsoft with their constant announcements of great, and soon to be coming online, software and hardware, will remember the word “vaporware.” Meaning of course, that the product is just hype, and it never materializes into an actual product you can buy. But the word was used about products that were just talked about, products that were supposedly going to appear in the future. The word was never applied to products that were for sale.
There is, though, a word for non-existent products that are advertised for sale but do not exist, that word is “brochureware.” It is not used much outside of specialized fields.
From one of our favorite online dictionaries:
“Planned but non-existent product like vaporware, but with the added implication that marketing is actively selling and promoting it (they’ve printed brochures). Brochureware is often deployed to con customers into not committing to an existing product of the competition’s.
The term is now especially applicable to new websites, website revisions, and ancillary services such as customer support and product return.
Owing to the explosion of database-driven, cookie-using dot-coms (of the sort that can now deduce that you are, in fact, a dog), the term is now also used to describe sites made up of static HTML pages that contain not much more than contact info and mission statements. The term suggests that the company is small, irrelevant to the web, local in scope, clueless, broke, just starting out, or some combination thereof.
Many new companies without product, funding, or even staff, post brochureware with investor info and press releases to help publicize their ventures…
Small-timers that really have no business on the web such as lawn care companies and divorce lawyers inexplicably have brochureware made that stays unchanged for years.”
This definition perfectly describes the e-Cat, but what about the Inteligentry Engine?
Of all of the Free Energy Devices out there the Noble Gas Engines are some that intrigue me the most. I cannot even explain why I am intrigued by them, but I am.
Papp was clearly a scam and fraud, and no person today that I am aware of has a working Noble Gas Engine. And that brings me to the Inteligentry Engine.
John Rohner has boxed himself in a corner. John claims to have a working Noble Gas Engine. John has stated that he has spent lots of money for many booths at the December 11, 2012 Power-Gen conference in Orlando, Florida.
The claim I am interested in though, is this one; John has stated that they are going to have on display at the show a working Noble Gas Engine. This is only two weeks away.
If John has a working Noble Gas Engine as he claims, and it will be demonstrated at the December 11, 2012 show, and if John has the organization of manufacturers in place as he claims, then Andrea Rossi might as well pack up his marbles (e-Cats) and go home.
But then again, after four years of vaporware and brochureware, if John Rohner via Inteligentry does not come through with a working engine at this show in two weeks, then I will actively put John Rohner on my confirmed list of scammers and fraudsters.
(Added December 1, 2012. Just for a point of clarification. This working engine must prove John’s claim that he has an engine that uses a very small amount of electricity that in turn creates a plasma in some Noble gas that powers an engine that produces 150 HP. If John just hooks up an electric motor to a battery or the mains, and lets that run during the show that will prove nothing. John say this on his website:
“How the Plasmic Transition Process(tm) system works.
To start this discussion, this Engine is not, just as the original Papp engine was not, a Pulsed Plasma motor. Plasma is not retained and pulsed as many others have stated. The plasma is recreated with each power stroke and returns to a steady state gas on each return stroke thus the name Plasmic Transition Process . The initial power event and creation of plasma, for expansion, is derived from a actuation event within the cylinder, a very high voltage ball, similar to a lightning ball, is created at Top Dead Center (TDC) which creates a Plasmic Transition, expansion of 5 to 1, which is contained in a sealed cylinder thus pushing the Piston and rotating the crankshaft system.
In a single cylinder engine there are only 3 moving parts so the addition of a flywheel is required to provide the kinetic energy to complete the non powered cycle. There is no need to recycle electrons from one cylinder to another unless you are looking for a perpetual motion machine.
This is a new system that crosses the previous borders the science of Physics as it is part Fusion, fission and plasma working together utilizing elements of each to the advantage of the result. this result is power.
The output Torque is steady over the range of the Rotation of the engine, roughly 400 Ft Lbs in a 500 CC engine, at any engine rotational speed. So Horse Power is a straight rising line… As a Pilot it intrigues me how the 1 liter Twin, which makes about the same power as a six cylinder internal combustion engine, but with 1/4 the weight, could be on a personal aircraft that could fly, even at 90 miles an hour, across the ocean and then turn around and fly back. Put a good “auto pilot” in and kick back and relax in your own space.”
Everyone, no matter how far out their claims, should have their day in court, so to speak. They should have the opportunity to present their claims to be evaluated and tested. The world has been waiting for hundreds of years for a small free energy device that can transform this sea of energy in which we are all immersed into a source of unlimited, usable energy coming through that device without meters or control by others.
That day will come, the only question is when,
and who will bring us the actual working device, this Holy Grail?
Joy & Peace
