Quasiturbine Engines, interesting new engine

Quasiturbine Engine


Found this on How Stuff Works, a new type of combustion engine that looks promising. Here are some of the points taken from the article:

Quote:
Significant advantages of the Quasiturbine include:

* Zero vibration because the engine is perfectly balanced
* Faster acceleration without a flywheel
* Higher torque at lower rpm
* Nearly oil-free operation
* Less noise
* Complete flexibility to operate completely submerged or in any orientation, even upside-down
* Fewer moving parts for less wear and tear
