KMW Electric Cars

The KMWEV program [weave] design team has been examining new advances in dielectric ultracapacitors and nanowire Liion batteries.

A team designing an electric competetor to the small sedan used capacitors and batteries to produce an EV similar in curb weight, superior in performance, and with 5-8 hour running life. With Stanford's new nanowire battery, sure to translate favorably in capacitance, the electric model has soundly overtaken the petroleum vehicle.

Adding the cheaper-than-coal solar paneling to the vehicle's body will trickle charge the battery as it runs, shortening charge time and battery size. More exciting to our engineers is the effect this new battery system will have on the electric motorcycle. A true and proper unlimited electrical bike can be built with the technology we now have. It is very probable that teams can beat the nitromethane racers within months.

Experiments in graphene production and synthesis are being beamed to our associates. Additional yields in conductivity and amperage may be forthcoming.

Combining these technologies and new pro-lab and robotic manufacturing operations could produce cheap and long-lasting electrical vehicles before 2010.

The great motorcycle would have a Kanzius engine in x-firing otto2.0, o-gear pattern, with the 0-under the seat oriented like a 3rd wheel. This engine does not require traditional fuel tanks, air intake, valves, radiators, exhaust, muffling, carbing or injection or fuel filter, so it would likely weigh substantially less than a traditional engine while producing greater hp from hydrogen activated from RF and a capacitor via alchemical molecular splitting.

A good and quickly starting and stopping motorcycle equipped with a CVT on an o-gear Kanzius would probably go 125 mph and weigh about 250 pounds. This seems like an ideal bike for many riders. Larger versions running on similar engines could be scaled purely for the width and performance.

Automobile accidents are one of the world's biggest killers. Foreseeing an availability of resources and technologies in the future, Kilby Motorworks was asked to design an automobile capable of protecting its passengers from a 100mph crash. Making these systems the most efficient possible became the task.

Easy Rider

"If I were to make the easiest possible motorcycle to ride, I would give the user a CVT transmission so they don't have to switch gears so often, bigger brakes to stop more quickly without engine-braking, and a small set of unmarketed 'training wheels' so the bike doesn't tip over so easily when making sharp turns. It'd also need to be light enough to be picked up and relatively unharmed by falling over. The training wheels could help this matter. I might add in an intelligent steering ballast for very low speeds to help balance the bike when the gyro effect is not in play..."

It would be foolhardy to store hydrogen gas in an automobile. The Hindenburg taught us this. Storing more than 25 cycles of hydrogen as a gas while also being used as a fuel source for an engine is banned here, and should be legally banned in the nation.

The sensible way to store or use hydrogen as fuel is in water. Until that technology is prepared for the public market metal hydrides are the way to go. We can use the hydride batteries as part of the frame, or as a functional metal bumper, and have them [both] replaced at fuelling stations, until water approaches. Considering probable events, water hydrogen technology should be approaching by around 2009 for general use, and afterwards in cars becoming fashionable around 2010.

KMW E- motorcycle

The electric motorcycle can achieve 0-60 in 1.0 seconds, using just under 1000 lithium ion batteries. A nitromethane racer does the same in 0.7 seconds.

Scientists have recently produced supercapacitors that can hold 7X the normal charge of an old school style dielectric supercapacitor. Using this rapid and groos discharge it will be possible for the electric bike to replace some lithium ions with supercaps to enhance performance in the initial acceleration.

A bike composed entirely of supercaps would have a ride life of only perhaps six seconds or so, but it could accelerate outstandingly fast in those six seconds, certainly destroying any quarter mile record. A bike with supercaps to enhance lithium ion charge could become the next great superbike system.

Supercap = Superbike
