Creating an idea and bringing it to reality can happen in less than a year. But improvement of it for achieving better gain and efficiency may take several decades. A good example of this is Engines. In recent years human effort for increasing vehicle engines efficiency is not limited to mechanical improvement.

HYDRAULIC RAILWAY SYSTEM

*All of the weight of the train is sustained by the hydraulic fluid eliminating the use of wheels.
*Does not consumes energy for flotation (it is a closed sealed hydraulic system).
*It works with extremely low hydraulic pressure,

Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) solves the long standing dilemma of passenger transportation by combining the advantages of the car and transit. Beamways is the only PRT optimized for low natural resource and energy consumption. With solar collectors on top of the guideway it can be self sufficient with energy.

An important objective for solar system expansion is near earth asteroid-based development. Starting from a nunmanned mission this program can provide an asteroid mitigation platform, obtain essential space based resources and materials, spur the development of a fully reusable space transportation system,

This entry submits the use of the Landin Engine in aircraft use to replace the conventional turbine. The basic Landin Engine design was submitted in last year's contest, and can be seen here: http://contest.techbriefs.com/sustainable-technologies-2011/1450

In aircraft use,

Liberator

Turbo Enhanced Intake/ Exhaust V-diodes

Innovation pertains to enhancement tuning of intake and exhaust systems while improving fuel economy for combustion engines utilizing multi-cyclonic vortex action. Additionally, performance of the vehicle is enhanced while reducing particulate contaminates associated with the burning of fossil fuels.

LiftPort Lunar Space Elevator Infrastructure

“Lunar Space Elevators for Cislunar Space Development”

LiftPort Group and its ‘Best in Class’ team of experts have come together (for the first time ever) with a unique, revolutionary rethink of the Lunar Elevator concept. LiftPort’s Lunar Space Elevator Infrastructure (LSEI) is different.

What problem does the LIVY design solve?

The LIVY allows for deliveries to be made in large and dense urban areas at a much lower cost than traditional methods. It is also a great upgrade to current green methods of city delivery which uses pedal/electric driven models.

Description:
In the present forms of such mechanical cyclic and collective controls more or less complexity is unavoidable. Besides the employment of the usual devices such as disengage devices, linkages, metal bars and fittings necessarily introduce numerous difficulties and limitations and add to the cost of production,
