  • Publication number: 20180298884
    Abstract: A system includes a thermal transpiration generator having a vacuum-sealed container, a rotatable shaft within the container, bearings supporting the shaft within the container, a first set of vanes secured to the shaft, a second set of vanes secured to the shaft, a first receiving lens for focusing energy on the first set of vanes, a second receiving lens for focusing energy on the second set of vanes, and a flywheel secured to the shaft. An electric generator is located outside the container and is coupled to the rotatable shaft with a magnetic coupler to be driven by rotation of the shaft. The system further includes a light energy collector system concentrating energy on each of the first and second receiving lenses, and an outer housing located about the container and the electric generator.

  • Publication number: 20150013337
    Abstract: A thermal transpiration generator system includes a parabolic dish, a secondary reflector receiving solar energy from the parabolic dish, and a carrier tube directing solar energy from the secondary reflector to a thermal transpiration generator. The thermal transpiration generator includes a sealed vacuum container, a horizontally disposed rotatable shaft within the sealed vacuum container, bearings supporting the rotatable shaft, a first set of vanes secured to the rotatable shaft for rotation therewith, a second set of vanes secured to the rotatable shaft for rotation therewith, a high rpm flywheel secured to the shaft between the first and second sets of vanes, an electric generator operatively coupled to the rotatable shaft to be driven by rotation of the rotatable shaft, and a solar energy distribution system for receiving solar energy from the carrier tube and directing light to each of the first and second sets of vanes.

  • Patent number: 8888614
    Abstract: A warm-up and training bat includes a tubular shell with a handle section, a barrel section, and a tapered section connecting the handle section with the barrel section. The handle is attached at an end of the handle section of the bat. An end cap is attached at an end of the barrel section of the bat. A sliding weight mechanism is entirely contained within a pipe disposed within the barrel section of the bat. The sliding weight mechanism can be held in place at an end of the pipe proximate the handle. When a centripetal force is applied during a swing, the sliding weight mechanism moves to a distal end of the pipe. The weight may make a sound or the user may feel the weight shift, helping them perfect their swing.
