Inventor Thomas Kasmer may have the
“killer app” for your car’s addiction to the
Paleolithic era’s byproducts. Hydrogen fuel cells are delayed
in becoming integrated within the automotive industry because
of the required changes in national infrastructure & a lingering
liquid hydrogen storage tank problem (among other problems).
Kasmer claims his Hydristor can be implemented
into the basic design of modern automobile drive trains to cut
fuel consumption in half and increase, NOT decrease performance.
Perhaps equally important is the claim
that most autos on the road today can be rather inexpensively
retrofit with the hydristor. This would mean more immediate widespread
results that could ease stress on the environment to a significant
degree, while drastically reducing foreign oil dependence, &
thus discontinue lining enemy pockets with U.S. money. It might
be a bit harder to fly airplanes into buildings halfway around
the planet if you’re broke.

There is quite a bit of technical information
available about Kasmer’s patented Hydristor system on the
web (follow the links at the end of the article for more information),
but I wanted to find out what makes a guy like this tick. Kasmer
developed the Hydristor virtually on his own with investments
he solicited from private financiers.
The Hydristor has literally been a lifetime
in the making. Hydristor combines the words hydraulic & transistor.
Kasmer claims the automotive application is but one of the everyday
needs this technology can revolutionize.. Or should I say 'evolutionize'.

Tom Kasmer spoke with me in a phone interview
(03/27/05 update - Mr. Kasmer
was saddened to learn of the passing of John Delorean on 03/19/05.
John was interested in using the Hydristor in a new version of
his now classic Delorean automobile. Since expressing interest
in using the Hydristor in mid 2004, Delorean had become Mr. Kasmer's
mentor & advisor; speaking with him about once weekly. "I
will miss his wise counsel". -Tom
I was hoping to scoop the entire news industry with the news
that DeLorean had a new mass production car prototype ready. Instead,
John has decided to get off this planet while the gettins' good.
Well, at least there was a time when I was the only news-man in
the world that had that information. =->.
