Well this will work...
This looks like it is converting a small antenna into a large antenna. No magic here, just a better coupling to space by effectively changing the speed of electromagnetic propagation across the small antenna, and I'm guessing finding it's own sweet-spot, which can't have been anticipated. Very clever.
So you can make a big antenna smaller (hiding it), or you can make a small antenna (which are very poor drivers) more efficient. This will be great for phones. How hot does yours get as it desperately tries to drive a signal out there?
Tesla would like it.
you can recharge alakaline batteries
Just FYI. Duracell have been conning everyone for years about this. You can recharge alkaline batteries. Just don't let them overheat while doing it. Being in the antarctic might help here :).
"intellectual property...." = death knell
He mentioned IP, which means venture capitalists, which means it is a dead duck. I'm guessing some awful lock-in to some net-based service. It's a goner....<quack>
over designed? meaningless phrase
What I think you mean is badly designed , under designed, or over engineered.
Good design is sensitive to needs. Bad design is not. No design is pretty random. emergent design is a joke. You get my drift.....
Designs don't emerge! Speak english, please.
Design is a priori, emergence is post facto.
Evolution doesn't "design" (unless you are a loony), emergence is an evolutionary behaviour.
Bah! Humbug! So, are you a loony?
Perhaps you are trying to avoid the "architecture" word?
Roll off the high frequencies with a filter, then put an exciter or similar afterwards to give the impression of high frequencies. Will hiss instead of clip, but our ears don't mind that so much. Good luck.
