Air Car Access and Pneumatic Options Research Library forum are happy to
announce...a friendly place for compressed air researchers and inventors to come together for shop talk, design
critiques, and just plain passing the gas around.
Compressed Air Power Secrets, 3rd
Edition A technical book for people who hate technical books.
All you have to know is a little (very little) simple algebra in order to
ingest this whole 374-page book. It will make you smarter than me if
you aren't already. After 29 years of studying compressed air I still
didn't understand the math so I studied several compressed air textbooks to
find out what I didn't know. I forced myself to come to an
understanding of everything I read and analyzed the reasons why it was so
hard to figure out, and all the details of this quest, within reason, are
included in the book. This
is the book you need in order to teach yourself how air works and what the
calculations mean. One man liked this book so much he gave me $900
Air Car Hall of Fame, volume
1...the birth of an encyclopedia! Revealing personal
information about air car inventors of the past, most of it unknown till now. This
project was undertaken so that we could get an inkling of what these
inventors were like as people, and what else they did besides think up a
self-filling air tank, free range air car, barn-sized compressor that runs by itself, car that runs on the wind
it makes by passing through the atmosphere, or other pneumatic machine that
others naturally assume should be impossible. In the process of researching this
book, dozens of inventors were discovered whose work had been lost. Future
volumes will include all of these inventors.
Read the whole thing, 'cause the fun never ends and some of the best stuff
is in the last chapter!
Beyond reading this website there is a LOT more information to download,
free & almost free. Currently I am charging $11 for a few books that are worth ten times that much, but most
books are only a few dollars or free.
This has been my personal research dissemination project since 1979. Beware of cheap
imitations, which can be identified easily since they are cautious enough to not copy my jokes. To get your two
cents in, join the forum.
Doing work with sound waves; the air is the main moving part. The picture at right
shows an oscillatory torque converter invented by George Constantinesco, who had many patents on acoustic power.
Acoustic power is also routinely used to supercharge racing motorcycles without a
This air engine was designed and built by engineer Paul Trentham (right) who helped
with Terry Miller's project. The engine was later given to the University of Washington for their cryogenic
(liquid nitrogen) car. I owned it long enough to take pictures, then gave it away. A simple conversion of a
motorcycle engine using a rotary valve.
The fine gentleman pictured to the right was and is an
award-winning designer of racing
motorcycles. He came to my house dressed all in black (1981) and told me the government would NEVER let me
build or sell air cars. He's still making motorcycle parts, and I'm still thinking about building air cars (2013).
Just google "Mr. Spooky" "Air cars" "compressed air" "people love air cars."
Neither republikrats, nor demopublicans, nor libertarianists, nor liberabbles,
nor conserva-thieves, nor pushers of one-god religions...will keep me from making up my own mind and
changing it as often as I want. I am inventing a new political party called the Abundance Party, which is based
on the notion that money is just a toy, so everyone should get to play with it. Basic essentials including
education, housing, medicine, and food would make useful people more useful and useless people less annoying.
Can you imagine a society where air cars should run for free but only for you? If so, then you don't get the
