Skyacht – Personal Blimp

Skyacht (Image courtesy PersonalBlimp.com)By Andrew Liszewski

So it looks like that flying car we were all supposed to be driving by now is no where in sight. At least there’s not one in my driveway. Sure a couple of companies have taken a shot at designing one but in the end all we’re left with is broken dreams, empty promises and no flying cars.

But where large companies leave off, smaller independent inventors take over. Designing a safe flying car is quite an undertaking (translation: expensive) so Skyacht Aircraft Inc. decided to instead adapt a vehicle that was already tried and true. The Personal Blimp uses hot air instead of helium plus a new patented frame that keeps the envelope (balloon) rigid but can also be collapsed. So unlike those Goodyear chumps the Personal Blimp doesn’t need to be stored in an expensive hangar when not in flight.

Of course the Personal Blimp won’t be facilitating anyone’s morning commute but for recreational uses its slow and smooth flight characteristics makes it ideal even for those without a pilot’s license.

    Thanks for your kind words about our project. One correction I’d like to make is that one does needs a pilot’s license (actually technically it’s called a certificate) in order to fly any blimp, including ours. Regards.

    Hah!.. Looks more like a floating gurney…

    I’ll tell you where flying cars are…

    I have the technology.. I can’t find the funding..?

    1978 late Fall.. on a planned three-week leisurely cruise across Canada, along highway number-one, along as much of the scenic-routes as I could find.. just past the Ontario border into Manitoba.. I saw two large meteorites cross a huge “X” in the sky.. and thought about it with all I had.. “What makes Alien craft’s engines work”, I telepathed from all my Being, with all I had…
    …A few minutes later, I had to park, to write the flood of new data, for three hours straight.. resulting in the crude bench manual to build a liquid electricity rocket…

    James Watt watched a kettle boil, and invented a steam engine… I saw an X in the sky, and invented the liquid electricity engine…

    I attempted to detail the workings of the engine to a visiting European nuclear physicist.. “mindless dolt” would be a better fitting title… 60-seconds into the description, his face when pale, his chin dropped, he struggled to speak, he accused me of “talking in the forth dimension”, barely managed to stand, managed to walk three paces, and fell flat on his face on the carpet…

    Over the years I have contacted pretty-much every major scientific concern in the business world, to no avail…
    All I got was classy snubbing and scorn from the mindless scientific community, governments, and religions… and a lot of remote viewers desperately trying to suck technology from my mind, mostly when I slept.. till I figured ways to seriously damage them upon approach… Plus there were a lot of attempts to dig into my computers, them believing I’d put the meat in a computer Not connected to the Net… They destroyed five PC’s… Seems this race doesn’t want engines for flying cars, and engines to take us to other solar systems… unless they can steal it from the inventor… It’s a pity I am being forced to take this technology to the grave…

    All this engine is, is a couple serious modifications to laser… It cracks light… Damaged light-cones self-heal with the nearest molecules.. thus creating raw antimatter-acids, which are saved in exhaust scrubbers, and sold to power industry… The service station pays the consumer for plugged exhaust scrubbers.. A complete 180 turn around for having to pay for gas all these years…

    Fragmented light-”particles” instantly decay into liquid electricity.. which, among 100 new technologies, in this science layer, replaces combustion as a power source, opens the bonds of the inert elements, establishes plazma welding of all materials to all materials, is the base to establish disintegrator trash-pails, obsoletes hospitals, gives us planetary defense weaponry, and thousands of new toys, and gets us to other habitable-planets before this one shows us we’ve already killed it…

    It’s that.. or you’all can go try to find it all by yourselves, by your classic “scientific” trial and error methods…

    If anyone has a clue how to get new technology funded, I’d sure appreciate hearing about it.. and I’m sure you would benefit from it greatly when I start marketing flying-cars…
    Do you prefer two seaters or four seaters?..

    Why is it so tough to get new technologies funded?.. Could it be that mankind’s intellect is devolving..? given that cell phones are baking brains, meth and coke are dissolving brains, the drug industry’s pain killers evolutions are numbing people to reality, dirty smallpox vaccinations are destroying brain file connections, and prolific lack of nutrients are literally desiccating brains…
    Every day it seems more and more that humans are devolving into apes… Just look at how they, you, we, treat this planet…

    Bottom-line is, You get flying cars about five years after I gets a lab… Simple as that!… I’ve done a life-time of work acquiring this technology.. I’ve taken it as far as I can without funding…

    So.. Now you know why you are not driving your flying-cars today.. and why those alive today won’t be seeing flying-cars in their lifetimes…

    ____________

    This liquid electricity emitter’s raw output is a dirty-pink stationary light-cloud… which evolves into 4-D TV, and into cinema special effects breakthroughs for the next 500-years… Filmable synthetic actors, restricted only by a lack of imagination…

    A little further research, this toy evolves into an engine that will obsolete Fire as a power source… Fire will become illegal… The atmosphere will have the opportunity to self-heal…

    This plazma engine will power all our vehicles, including moon and mars capable consumer RV’s… and will provide mankind with the basic means to populate other planets in other solar systems…

    This engine evolved to tools and weaponry, will do things like, “write a poem on a lunar cliff face from earth… and drill a meter diameter hole 20-miles into the earth’s crust, for us to plant magma batteries, which crystallize into crystallines, with hardnesses 14 to 28 on the Mho’s scale… Thereby revolutionizing several industries: optics, bearings, abrasives, weaponry, and pretty much every industry in many ways…

    This is what our Species has been searching for… I found it, but it seems no one can even begin to fathom any of it… I tell them, and they piss in my face…

    The usual reaction I get when mentioning any of This in various I-Net forums, is flame and barrages mindless insults, and varying religious, physiological, and political battles with aggressive mindless people, hellbent on defending the stagnancy-quo…

    I defend myself well against slanderous attacks, which have resulted in me being banned from forums and scientific communities…
    I’ve heard it all, repeatedly, in various world forums, and from other sources.. and from the mindless scientific community, that can’t even grasp the first minute of this technology… It’s the same “wall” of fear and insanity that all the ancient greats were confronted by… It’s what trashed Tesla’s lab after he plugged a light-bulb into the ground… It’s what ridiculed Flemming for inventing penicillin, and for claiming that tiny invisible bugs were the cause of disease… and the medical scientific community tried to destroy Flemming’s life, and returned, content, to their tapping wounds with filthy turkey feathers dipped in alcohol and various rock powders, to frighten away disease…

    It’s that Dam wall… Your Species just can’t see light through it…
    Seems there is no secret entry point through this Race’s mindless insanity levels, to permit a scientist to build new technologies, to give this Race more…? Seems you are all content with the fall in oblivion… numbing the discomforts of the fall with your latest evolutions of designer drugs…

    Wake Up MindlessHumans!.. While you still can…
