Yes, Wankels and 2-strokes do not have cams, but they have their own host of problems. I believe F1 still use camshafts, but they've used pneumatics in place of valve springs for a while now. I'm not sure if you watched the video.

I'll be honest- I figured this was going to be some goofball backyard 2 stroke based thing before I clicked on the link.... but wow, is that cool!

Ugg compressed air line under the hood going every where. I don't think its a great idea. I hate tracking down small leaks in our equipment.

Cool, but Im more intrigued by this type of cylinder head design...no more standard camshaft or poppet valves at all.

Very cool that it is somewhat universal in its application across such a wide range of platforms.

Lighter, smaller, 20% higher efficiency, and 30% more power/torque, and less emissions. This has potential to be a major game changer or end up being bought and shelved.

Unfortunately, battery technology should be advanced enough within 5 years when this application starts hitting newer consumer cars that it will have serious competition with an all electric or light weight hybrid platform.

On the commercial platform this has massive potential. Possessing the gains above in a commercial truck engine while reducing weight could eliminate hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel imported every day.

I would have thought someone would be working on an electro-magnetic system by now.

I remember hearing (well reading) Bruce Crower talk about this 30 years ago.

It's still not adjustable on the fly like the koenegwhatever head.

Lot of companies were working on those about 10-12 years ago. I'm sure still in development.

One main problem was the 42v electric system that seemed like it was the way forward around that time never materialized.

Hard to do a lot of heavy power draw stuff with the old style 12 volts...

This will revolutionize piston engines. We have had the idea for decades, but the technology and electronics were not up to par. There was a write up in Motor Magazine in the 80's, about a fleet of delivery vans in Chicago. They had solenoid operated valves, and had no clutch or transmission, and no starter. The engine stopped every time the vehicle did, and started back up top get it moving, by controlling the valves in conjunction with the injection and ignition.

So with Lithium batteries this is now a real possibility?
