The Wobble Yoke

"The patented Wobble Yoke system, developed by Whisper Tech, converts the linear motion of the engine's four pistons into the rotary motion necessary to drive a generator. Seals and guide life have traditionally been a limiting factor in Stirling engines. The Wobbe Yoke development, which transfers the power from the pistons in a manner that puts very little side load on the piston seals and guides, eliminates this problem in the WhisperGen engine."
