Flash Hydrogen Generator set to challenge OPEC
Emerging Technologies today announced a breakthrough
FLASH HYDROGEN GENERATOR that is poised to challenge OPEC. The device was
described as small enough to be held in your hand while running cool to the
touch with only a milliamp power draw when the breakthrough battery enhancement
circuitry is in place. This hydrogen generator's fuel source?? Water! Even salt
water! Plug it in, and in less than 2 seconds you have a blue flame. The output
of the system is pure H2O, so not only does the device act as a hydrogen
generator, but also as a cheap low power desalinator!
This is revolutionary because no longer will it be expensive to generate
hydrogen, no longer will we require costly hydrogen infrastructure, and no
longer will we have to fear the rolling hydrogen bombs that are compressed
hydrogen fuel tanks. The hydrogen instead is generated on demand and not stored
or accumulated anywhere. You can crash, and break the system into a thousand
bits, and have no fear of hydrogen fuel based fire! With widespread use of this
technology, our roads could be safer than ever before, with no more need for gas
tanks, trucks, pipelines, or related infrastructure.
This is real. A major world leader is visiting the company today. A major
Indy/CART racing team is getting behind them as well. William Alexander, CEO of
Emerging Technologies says that the device will sell for less than $600 retail,
prototypes are getting installed into vehicles and actual production begins in
less than 100 days! He also says that they are NOT going to sell this technology
to big oil so that the technology ends up shelved and unavailable. They are
committed to getting this technology to the world.
This means that power production can be decentralized anywhere there is water.
Living on (or in) earth's oceans just became a whole lot easier. We can reduce
our country's dependence on foreign oil by a HUGE margin, eliminating our
country's trade deficit in the process.
This technology looks like the bright vision of the future that we've always
been promised. V is for Voltage will be closely covering this story as it
unfolds in the coming months.
Here is the original company press release:
Tiny St. Louis based company breaks OPEC choke hold on US economy!
For decades a handful of OPEC oil ministers have dictated the health and well
being of the world's economy to a great extent.
In a classic David and Goliath story tiny St. Louis based Emerging Technologies
Development Corporation has announced that one of its client research groups
have done the unthinkable.
"We have created and now have fully functional a Flash Hydrogen generator
that produces Hydrogen on demand", says William Alexander, CEO of Emerging
Technologies. "We have attached this to an engine and we are right here and
right now running an engine on water . As of this minute we have the fully
functional capability to produce a car that runs on water. Emerging
Technologies Development Corporation has dubbed the system Endless Ride
and has filed a trademark on that name.
"What is the impact of totally safe Hydrogen on demand, no storage, no
compressed gas, no hybrid motors, no fuel
cells, no danger, and best of all the
fuel is virtually free?" asks Alexander.
"The fact is that in 100 days it is likely no owner/operator of a
combustion engine, car, boat, truck or train, will need to buy a single gallon
of gasoline - ever again".
"Clean, safe, endless energy with only heat and water as a by product! We
have done the unthinkable and we intend to produce the product right here in St.
Louis and anticipate several thousand jobs will be the result almost immediately
and perhaps several hundred thousand jobs once the global impact is felt",
At a retail of less than $ 600.00 this device will be well within the reach of
every strata of the populace.
Over the next 100 days Emerging Technologies Development Corporation will be
installing the system on a full sized vehicle and will offer rides to the public
to prove the performance capabilities . Also planned is a 40 foot trailer and
truck rig providing a mobile classroom for Jr. High and High School students who
can walk through the museum of development of what will energize their world of
the future, well beyond automobiles. The truck will , of course, be powered by
tap water. The dates and times of the test rides will be published in the St.
Louis Post Dispatch as we near the final installation" said Alexander to an
initial group of investors.
"We produce it as we burn it and we do not need anything special, plain
water or even sea water will work quite well - which in itself conjures up
images for boat owners", says Alexander.
Emerging Technologies will soon post on its web page the particulars on how the
public or joint venture OEM can invest in this technology if they have an
interest in doing so.
"We do not want large institutional investors and we do not want any
investor to have a stake in the product that will allow the product to be
withheld from the public ", quotes Alexander. "This device will, at
long last, be an invention for the common man and nothing is going to stop us
from removing the scimitar of oil from the throat of the American public".
More public exposure will follow as we move forward", says Alexander.

Lead Acid Battery Range Breakthrough
Emerging Technologies announced a breakthrough in
battery management and control systems today with the Battery Enhancement and
Control System or BECS. This device acts as both an advanced battery enhancement
system as well as a digital motor controller replacing the controller component
in a traditional brushed motor DC drive system. This device is designed to work
with the most inexpensive and readily available lead acid battery technology.
What does it do and why is it revolutionary? In a nutshell, this device will
dramatically increase the range of electric vehicles running common brushed
motors and lead acid batteries. This type of EV is by far the most common to
date, and is the most economical of all designs. By releasing an advanced
enhancement and control system that works with the existing old school EV
technology, this technology suddenly becomes much more valuable and much more
useful. How useful exactly? Testing shows the range of these vehicles will often
more than double when the BECS replaces the standard motor controller. Let that
sink in for a minute. Now that EV that gets 20 miles of range can get 40 miles
or more. That 50 mile EV can now reach 100 miles or more.
The primary function of the BECS is to create an environment where every aspect
of the electrical functionality of a stored energy source (your lead acid
battery pack) is controlled to maximize the application of energy to perform
work. While the exact mechanism and methodology is patent pending, the BECS uses
the frequency of pulse, the wave form, the natural recovery characteristic of
stored energy devices, the rechargeability attribute and recovery of lost energy
in a typical wave form to do the following:
1) Control Back EMF
2) Selects and identifies the stored energy device's latent pulse frequency
3) Selects and delivers the desired pulse frequency
4) Selects and delivers the desired pulse duty period
5) Selects and controls the pulse discharge duty period
6) Verifies capacitor voltage
7) Generates and controls the desired voltage range
8) Adjusts run routines to maintain desired voltage window
9) Dynamically alters the above through self diagnostic feedback to maintain
optimum balance in the system
10) The discharge duty and period on both positive and negative rails are
monitored and altered to maintain optimum capacitor voltage
11) Control of discharge pulse for low efficiency pulse may be skipped at will
to allow maximum build up and therefore maximum work
12) Pulse back to the stored energy device may be desirable if maximum work
balance is in place and lost energy is directed back into the storage device
13) Real time frequency and duty adjustments are controlled to constantly tune
14) Memory build up is controlled to allow full recovery
15) Initialization of the process from stored energy is specifically used as a
solar panel or other device may be used to created small amounts of stored
energy that is constantly renewed by outside source (the sun)
16) This device will work on virtually all stored energy devices not just common
17) The production version of the device is about the size of a pack of
18) Wholesale cost is quite low (less than many other controllers), and
preproduction engineering is minimal
19) The device can be built to support any voltage or power level desired
This device currently needs to be tuned to the specific motor application for
optimum results, so Emerging Technologies is looking first to sell to OEMs to
improve their existing product lines, following with a generic self tuning
product to sell to the general populous in approximately 7 to 8 months.
No specific product claims are being made at this time, as outside testing is
still underway, but preliminary testing has shown ranges increase 2 to 4.5 times
the original range. The original range was tested with controllers exceeding 95%
efficiency ratings, yet the BECS could still improve range to 200% of original
or more. Vibration, temperature, moisture, humidity and longevity testing are
currently underway at a certified outside testing facility.
Now old lead acid vehicles will be able to compete with advanced battery
chemistry vehicle ranges at a mere fraction of the cost of these expensive
packs, and advanced battery chemistries will be able to go farther than ever
V is for Voltage is currently testing pre-production prototypes and will be

Subject: Re: ASAP permission to reprint articles; question
[...] As for testing the hydrogen device, it has been totally secret up until
now. Top secret for obvious reasons. I will be participating in the testing
cycle of the hydrogen device as well.
I have not personally tested the hydrogen device. Why did I decide to run the
story? Because I know the caliber of the inventors, the DARPA robotics lab that
is backing it, the CEO Bill Alexander who owns a number of other successful
companies in the aerospace and electronics manufacturing space. This is not
trolling for investors. These guys want to make a profit on their revolutionary
device, sure, but they are not looking to milk a bunch of people for development
money. That work is essentially complete. They are putting this into vehicles
and publicly showing them in less than 100 days.
THAT's what makes this worthy of running now.
Honestly, I believe this is totally real and totally on the up and up. Soon,
EVERY major media source globally is going to be running this
Also, an Indy/CART team is getting onboard and they are going to build
put the tech into a high end race car.
That said, I will absolutely be publishing testing results as soon as
they are available.

Correction -- Darpa not yet
The text box was cut off and the box should say and is being corrected
immediately to say Groups Seeking Darpa Awards
Emerging Technologies works with inventors and work groups who have great
ideas but need help in finding the right path and that is what we do. Sometimes
they will have an idea that can be commercialized and sometimes that idea
springs from a Darpa paper etc.
We have a number of people that have asked Emerging Technologies Development
Corporation to guide them through the application for and participation in Darpa
We did participate in the Darpa self navigational challenge in California and
we have looked at and worked with others wishing to participate in Darpa
programs. This is not an attempt to claim something not here and we will post a
correction and explanation of the web so there is no mistake in the intent

CAUTION! Claims are Suspect

Sterling - I think you should be somewhat cautious in promoting the H2 on Demand
device and claims of William Alexander, CEO of Emerging Technologies.
First off there are many easy ways to produce H2 on Demand, like lithium hydride
and water, or sodium hydride, etc. (or even Al and acid). But the size is
generally proportional to the volume of gas generated.
But there is no way that a $600 hand held device is going to produce enough
Hydrogen to operate a hydrogen powered vehicle, where you will need several
kilograms of H2 per hour, which will occupy hundreds of cubic liters, even
compressed to 3000 psi!! Also the volume of water consumed would be proportional
and the H2O tanks would have to be factored in.
I suggest that you have someone who is in the H2 business check this out before
you get too much closer or embarrassed by another Tilley
His Battery life extender claims are even more absurd!

hydrogen-on-demand for hydrogen-powered cars, enabling them to run on water.
