We have been long following Angelo Di Pietro and his elegant air compression engine that we feel will one day revolutionize transportation.  The latest news from Di Pietro is that his engine is being applied to a fish market, using the engine to transport fish and supplies within the market, and a warehouse.  We will keep a close eye on this engine and see if they can solve some of the problems of the energy needed to produce the compressed air for the engine:

he Di Pietro Motor is a 94.5% efficient compressed air motor that can run on energy from sustainable sources such as the sun.

At the moment he uses one size motor for all the applications as seen in this video. With development it has the potential to replace any size motor in any application.

This technology exists today. It’s not an engineer’s concept bound to a computer screen. It’s patented and physically verified. The only thing holding back the widespread application of this technology seems to be will.

Even in light of the gulf oil disaster Obama has been quoted saying “We’re not going to transition out of oil next year or 10 years from now” – President Barack Obama, May 26, 2010

Why not Mr Obama? The technology exists right now and your people know it.
