very little relationship to how the Ballistic Breaker works.

My comment on the Energy Innovation by Statoil blogsite today

Ian said:

New Scientist and Statoil asked specifically what will have the largest near future impact, not what could. Not sure the winner and runner-ups reflect this important distinction

I commented:

On the positive side of this, I hope that 50 years from now we can look back and realize just what saved us. My leading candidates:

1) LENR (by that I specifically mean the nuclear fusion reactions of nickel with light (normal) hydrogen; if that works out it will surely be the most important thing.

2) If not that, then I'm betting on a supergrid to save us.

When the shit hits the fan, there will be a panicky rush for solutions. Unfortunately only proven technologies will qualify for panic funding. My goal is to have my invention elpipes ready when that moment arrives; see

I filed my "Continuation-in-Part" US Patent Application today

Each major redrafting of this patent has been a big improvement. First, my US patent application was filed on February 6, 2012, based on three prior provisionals. Then I greatly improved on that, and also added some new subject matter and claims in my PCT patent application, filed October 1, 2012. This "Continuation-in-Part" US patent application filed today added two new claims from the PCT (it is now 37 claims), and I am very happy with it. I believe it is valid, but I do expect challenges will be made by the examiner that probe at the relationship between Ballistic Breakers and two particular prior technologies:

  1. Automatic tap changers for AC transformers
  2. Rheostats
I expect the examiner to find a few patents I missed, because the old patents are hard to search.
