    In 1974, students at UCLA built an engine that ran on air and produced potable water from the tailpipe. Around the same time, another guy produced an engine similar to this one.

    Both disappeared, bought up and shelved by the oil companies.

    Looks like this guy may have timed his invention perfectly. I want stock in that company.

    If I am not mistaken electrolysis of water produces hydrogen so I am pretty sure this is how it works. It seems like a new execution of an old idea. I hope this guy can get it out into the free market. I read a story about a guy in Montana that had built several windmills used them to provide the electricity to electrolysize water and ran his home and cars on the hydrogen they provided. Its the wave of the future wish I had some money to invest in the technology

    Real neat, just like cold fusion. Which didn't work. Where did the electricity (for the electrolysys of the water into hydrogen and oxygen) come from? Magic wand? Fairy dust? Wind power isn't practical in areas where the wind doesn't blow strong and steadily.

    Keep those wind-mills going ! That is how I put grits on the table..... We would have wind-mills around these parts but the wind blows a little too hard durring the summer months at times .

    I was thinking the same thing. How much real power input is required for this to work. Despite how badly people want to believe otherwise, the fact of the matter is that energy has to come from somewhere. You can't violate the laws of thermodynamics.

    They should make them with variable blades to withstand 160 mph and 200 mph gusts.

    they are variable- they are designed to change angles depending on wind strength. at least, I think they do.
