Major Announcement Monday Morning
    #477377 - 12/02/01 07:27 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

Here at the SporeLab, we will be making a Major Announcement tomorrow morning. At this time, the world will be swept over, lives, cities and ways of thinking will change.

Ok, it's not our announcement that will change the world. That honour belongs to inventor Dean Kamen who will unviel the mysterious and much-hyped invention 'Ginger' and the IT technology that runs it, on tomorrow mornings Good Morning America show on ABC. It is likely a personal mobility vehicle, a scooter running on a 19th century designed Stirling hydrogen engine which recycles much of it's own heat.

We hate to steal the inventors thunder but we'll be unvieling a little something ourselves tomorrow morning......stay tuned!

Are you saying that in the 1800's people were pondering the use of hydrogen as a source of fuel?

Apparently the Stirling engine was designed in the 1800's and runs on hydrogen. I don't know too much about it but it turns out that is not part of the mystery invention.

Here's the full story on this mornings unvieling:

That's Kaman's latest version of "Ginger", his older sit-down model.

I was in Vegas when he revealed it to the UFO conference there last year. Pretty sweet!!

Hmm, the article was talking about how the scooter is battery powered...So do they use hydrogen for the redox reaction in the battery or something? That's not really using hydrogen as a fuel, seeing how the energy source is comming from an electrical socket in the wall...It isn't combustion either.

In the unveiling, I didn't see any mention of the Stirling 19th century hydrogen engine which was speculated before the announcement. Instead, it's some kind of rechargeable battery.

I wouls suggest doing a search on Stirling engines for more info on the hydrogen thingy.
