I had to make a video this morning from rather poor quality cell phone videos because that's all I had to work with. With the edition of the added voice over I believe the video will suffice for now. The video is a short announcement about our Power Energy Cell that we have been researching and working on now for quite some time. The Cell runs on salt water, Urine, Battery Chem, and several other inexpensive chemical formulas. Certain fuels produce more power than others. We are ready to patent and go into mass production but will require additional funds as the patents alone for international protection are very expensive. It won't be that long before you will be driving a scooter or electric car powered by this product. It is really a system of making electricity and storing it in a battery. The Power cell was developed by Mike Winchell and Walt Barrett.

I am tinkering with an idea to build adobe style building blocks made from home made glue dampened newspaper and compressed into a mold. The newspaper would not be shredded in order to save labor and energy. The mold would be made the size of the normal size section of newspaper folded in half. For small buildings, pressure might not be necessary. Some simple load testing will have to be performed. The biggest problem I see is coming up with an inexpensive glue formula that mixes with water. The exterior walls of the building will have to be painted or sided to protect them from water damage. The bottom row blocks will have to be thoroughly sealed to prevent wicking of ground water, or moisture. More time and and research will be devoted to the water proofing aspects. Of course, real adobe has very little built in moisture protection. Perhaps we can develop an inexpensive water resistant glue. My main concern is the cost of glue in the third world especially. These blocks will be considerably lighter than adobe or concrete. We are open to any inexpensive home made glue formula ideas.
