Thornson Drive

September 23, 2012

In 2006 I decided to build an inertial thruster, I chose Roy Thornson’s  design, as his seemed to be the most straight forward system. The science behind an inertial thruster has been explored by many scientists, engineers and inventors who have been awarded patents for the functional proof with a working model. The secrets behind this sort of device is in the translation of gyroscopic inertia and rotational geometry, I have been tentatively working on the complete engineering maths required to build usable designs that can replace standard gearbox/universal/differential shafts and gear transmission components. This task is daunting, still if nobody tries I am sure it will be lost to history and we will again be set back in mankind’s quest to free himself of the foibles of  Newtons mechanistic 17 century engineering.

I have designed a lot of these types of inertial systems for years , I never got around to building one,  so I thought I would start this journey by testing Roys design. I built almost all of it before I ran out of money, now it sits here begging me to finish it. I tested the half that I completed, it had extremely powerful pulsations at the vector force differential direction that it was designed for, because I only have half of the machine finished it was imbalanced, man.. it almost took my arm off.

I am only including this in my blog to show how to build this device. If I could get some funding for my time, the remaining parts and machining I would like to finish it and put it on public show. Email me if you are interested in helping me complete Roys inertial thruster unit. I will expand this post with more details if I get some positive responses from my readers, regards Arto.

This work here will be in my second volume of “Talking to the Birds”, the first volume is available now.


The Optical Revolution is Here

June 20, 2010

My invention(AMOD) is now 10 years old to me, I have waited for the IBM, Sony, Hitachi, etc to come up with the solution of CD and DVD spin reliability and to eventually supersede it to a simpler more efficient solution, as usual they are making too much money from old technology and unreliable systems to go for something as simple, reliable and revolutionary as the Solid State Optical Disc Technology, I am at the end of my tether and will see who accepts my ideas as I am giving it freely to the world. Here is the basic system:

1.    No change to CD,DVD, discs this technology will not be obsolete
2.    Increases in read/write times increases 1000 fold
3.    No noise, no motor, no heat
4.    Lifetime of drive is extended to at least 100 years and much more
5.    CD,DVD can now be imprinted on anything
6.     The round disc will no longer be the imperative geometry
7.    New shapes and 3D forms will revolutionise computing and entertainment
8.    Simple manufacturing, once the required resolution has been achieved
9.    Error free reading/writing
10. Leadin, Leadout, Prepit not needed

Here is some pictures of the basic schematic and designs.
