    What looks interesting? They give very little information about their secret-and-totally-new-never-thought-of-before reinvention of the centuries old combustion engine. It has no oil and only one moving part.

    It is also a startup. And they want to test it in areas far away from any of their backers for some reason. :meh: Many of these startups that claim to have found some new science or technology are formed by people that know nothing about science or technology. (What ever happened to our "solar-freakin-roadways"?)

    Good point. What about logistics when it needs to be repaired? The locals know all about diesel pump engines. Maybe it's uniqueness will help keep it from being stolen.

    Toyota is working on this and it is interesting.

    Yes just had a look and it is interesting and gets a mention on Bloomberg as well. Maintenance every 1000 hours is what I saw. There is even a photo of it so it looks real news to me. Guess its a case of Watch that Space.
