Electric Jump Start

Friday, March 15th, 2013

An innovative magnet coil component, created by Seanic View, Inc., can make a major change in electric motor efficiency.  Anyone can now make a difference.

 

The CommuteFaster Energy news site has been listing several energy related crowd funding projects since the first of the year, 2013. I need to focus on the Electric Jump Start program.

 

Full disclosure, I founded Seanic View, Inc., the company running the project. As founder I have compiled some of the most talented people I’ve met in my life, and we now have a technology that will change electric motors to levels of efficiency not yet seen elsewhere.

 

For years, everyone has looked at the battery to be the weakest link for electric vehicles. Electric airplanes with cargo and passengers were a pipe dream. Incremental steps have been accomplished with experimental aircraft using electric motors and batteries, such at this one by Chip Yates. But nothing practical has yet to fly that can carry a respectable load of cargo, much less passengers on a long safe journey.

 

A new magnet/coil configuration has been discovered which yields more torque per watt than anything previously attempted. When used in an electric motor, this drastically reduces the need for large batteries and the heavy current draw on them.

 

Two informative videos have been prepared explaining the trials and tribulations of doing Research and Development on this topic.

 

The first one is the one highlighted at their Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign site

The second, not so easy to find video is here and explains the massive size of the electric motor market presently and what is projected as electric vehicles replace hydrocarbon fuel engines around the world.

 

While safer applications of Lithium ion or better systems are always appreciated, the large storage factor is no longer necessary. This new component will enable electric motors to deliver torque using a relatively miniscule about of current to do it. The result means it nears the output of the latest generation of solar panels. Which makes Solar Airplanes a reality. Present technology batteries could take the plane long into the evening, after the sunlight has gone for the day.

 

How soon will this happen? It’s up to you, and the world financial community. This is not the pipe dream of Walter Mitty. This technology is solid and a Prony Brake test is shown in the Electric Jump Start video. But as the video points out, capital is necessary to bring anything to market. Parts don’t make themselves, nor deliver themselves to the shelves at your local store.

 

Why do we all have personal computers in front of us? They started in a garage, but I can now grab an 8 core fire breathing, number crunching, monster at WalMart. It started when an Angel investor took Bill Gates and Steve Jobs seriously. That has yet to happen with alternative energy. Many an inventor has made the mistake and taken investment from friends and family by selling them stock, only to discover they overlooked SEC compliance rules regarding security sales.

 

Rules changed this year. Here is the new way SEC and IRS view the transaction.

 

First off, NEVER SELL STOCK to anyone other than accredited investors, (rich people) or corporations.

 

BUT

 

Any company may now accept donations. Forget the tax right off aspect, that still belongs to churches and other charitable organization. It is merely simple income to the inventor and his company of any structure. They do pay income tax on it, but same with anything they sell.

 

While the Jobs Act is reviewing methods to eventually allow equity to small investors, major equity return is still a privilege of the rich. But getting something you want done is gratification itself. Do you want to bellyache about Big Oil profits the rest of your life, or would you like to toss a few dollars at a noble project, run by people with the necessary skills? Just sitting there hoping doesn’t help anyone, even you.

 

Long term readers of the CommuteFaster Energy page know I’ve reported on many inventors over the years. Some had viable technologies, some disappeared into history. One thing they all had in common is NONE had major R&D investment to iron out all bugs before releasing them to the public. Look at what Boeing had to spend to get the B-787 in the air. And now they are all grounded due to battery failures. Batteries that controlled things, not power the flight. Yet look how expensive that is for them to solve. Could any garage inventor weather such a setback? Details like that have bankrupted many an otherwise good idea.

 

Angel investors, properly accredited, are the ones who are supposed to show up and properly fund any good ideas and bring them to market. But economy as it is, they just are not doing their job. Some Venture Capitalists themselves admit there is a serious “lemming” mentality. All want to be first to be second. Let the other guy take the risk of being first. But the early bird gets the worm. Anyone who helped Gates and Jobs at the beginning saw tremendous payback over the years.

 

In crowd funding you will not have stock certificates, or bonds, but your name does show up on the exclusive list of early contributors. That means a lot to any inventor. Who do you think he will stay in touch with as his ideas grow? Who will get the first units? Who will get notified first of a pending public offering? Who will be offered dealerships when available? And if you live near them, and got laid off from your regular job, who will the inventor hire first as he can afford more employees? Those are the hidden benefits of showing a little compassion and tossing a donation to any start up at the right time. Donate early and often, you know, just like voting in Chicago.

 

Crowd funding through sites like Indiegogo enable anyone to do that now.

 

Please give my own favorite project, ElectricJumpStart.com a review at your first opportunity. It runs through April 26, 2013. But don’t wait on the crowd. Please show some support now. After that date, Indiegogo and their coordinated abilities step out of the picture and Seanic View will go back to needing accredited investors for help. Smaller contributions after April 25 will not be as simple.

 

Clean technologies need support from concerned people like you. When enough begins to happen, the slow to catch on financial community will eventually show up to take it to higher levels.

 

Indiegogo is international. Contributions can be made online from any country on earth. Denominated in US dollars.

 

And just in case Seanic View exceeds its goal, it has a long list of equally impressive projects on the back burner that could make major changes in energy usage world wide. They have a back room full of rabbits to pull out of a hat as soon as funding permits. Please help them make a difference.
