This self-funded project is a leading
edge effort to research BPP (Breakthrough Propulsion Physics).
Formerly being researched by NASA, all BPP research funding was cut
by Congress in 2002. We have undertaken to privately continue
research in this field.
The potential applications of this
research include a reactionless thrust propulsion device
(impulse drive) and zero-emission power generation.

Project OWDA is being conducted for a
major appliance manufacturer with partners the Axis Group. It is intended
to address municipal-level environmental concerns.
At this time, further details are

Experimentation with early speech
recognition systems led to the realization that a totally
hands-free computer experience was desirable. Using a mouse
with a voice system was found to be awkward, as the user's
instinct is to use the now free hands for other purposes, such as
holding papers and reference material.
A system was developed and bench tested
which would allow a simple attachment to a boom mike to allow the
user to direct the mouse on the screen with gentle head
Since this project would work best
with a viable and widely accepted speech recognition system, it
has been mothballed until such a system appears on the
The VCRON, or VCR On, is an electronic
device which can be connected to a security system. When a
motion detector or similar device is triggered, the VCRON turns on a
standard, inexpensive consumer VCR. When it was developed in
the mid 1990's, it was an original product in the home-security
market. It was sold on the internet in an early experiment in
All development, including microprocessor
assembly-language programming, was done in house.
