Subject: Submission of MYT(tm) engine invention for your consideration in 2010 completion

By this message, Angel Labs and its founder, Raphial RG Morgado, submit Mr. Morgado's invention for your consideration in this year's competition.

This entry conforms to your stated requirements in every respect. It is clearly novel (see US patent #6739307), there is a working prototype (see video footage on our website referred to below), it has not yet been commercialized (but we expect to in a big way), it is the creation of an individual inventor and it has already been validated by NASA in April 2006 in its annual Create the Future contest.

The MYT(tm) engine is a revolutionary new internal combustion engine with unprecedented power to weight ratio that has already been developed and tested. The engine has several advantages over traditional engines. Specifically, it is ultra light and has diminutive physical dimensions (therefore the name, "Massive Yet Tiny") compared with engines producing equivalent power. Its high fuel efficiency is a radical improvement over conventional engines and addresses the current eco-efficient concerns. While the engine's uniqueness and elegant simplicity make it difficult to describe, it is helpful to think of it as a hollowed out "donut shaped" cylinder with paddle type pistons rotating through it in coordinated movements to carry out the 4 phases of a conventional internal combustion engine (induction, compression, expansion/power, exhaust). There is a vast reduction in moving parts as a result of the engine having no cylinder heads or parts commonly defined as the valve train (camshaft, valves, springs, tappets, push rods, rocker arms, etc). In a conventional four stroke reciprocating engine, each cylinder takes two revolutions to complete one cycle. Therefore, to match the number of power events per revolution that occur in the MYT Engine, a conventional four stroke reciprocating engine would have to be equipped with thirty-two (32) cylinders.

For convenient reference to additional information (including diagrams, simulations, test results, patent copy and NASA Tech Brief excerpts), please visit our website at and please do not hesitate to contact Raphial at .

Thank you in advance for your kind consideration of this very exciting technology that will excite the imagination and hopes of your readers.
