BELOW..IS A PHOTO OF A NEW SCOOTER JUST RELEASED FOR 2001 IT HAS THE SAME SEAT SUGGESTED BACK IN 1995 IN 'THE STREET RAG'SKETCH.It also battery powered by an electric motor(mounted as shown on the back wheel with a gear reduction drive). The one below that in the sketch instead and as mentioned has magnets around both wheels on both sides with coils affixed to the forks and minimizing the extra drive components .

Click (IMAGE NO.17e below)The electric scooter in the upper sketch below was from 'The street rag' Issue No. 102 page1 of sept.95,and depicts a traveller sitting or standing with swap battery in a back pack or/and even two others mounted on the steering post.As suggested in the following issue 103page2, exchange stations with standard swap batteries could be,like the old milk vending machines, be located all over the town or country for quick swaps for a fee of course. Just like the future electric autos system shown in page 3(index3.html) below. Just recently a new scooter abroad, now using the same seat, has begun making them but it must be plugged in to recharge it. should one run out of power 20 miles away ...that's a long way to peddle home with your foot.

(IMAGE NO.17e)The lower image depicts a "BI-Cycle" also in The Street Rag issue 102 page2, built for two but both on one seat or close proximity like a motorcycle. It's a cozy way to travel, no..? Also the pedals extend somewhat further out permitting both riders to participate in sharing the load and thus,less tiring for both.

(IMAGE NO.17f)How's this for a motorbike? It's cool in the summer and warm in the winter.Central landing mini-wheels like aircrafts come down and contact the pavement just as the bike stops and keeping it in a vertical position till the vehicle begins to move again.(cont)

(IMAGE N.17g)This ECOMOBILE is quite similar to the design shown above in 17f. Arnold Wagner with others in Switzerland are producing it. Micheal Brennen in California also wants to make a similar one thru his copmpany NOW MOTORS.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.18a)This snowboard is quite similar to the one I made back in 1961.As mentioned in text next to image 18 below a patent(no.3154312) was acquired in 1964 titled the "monoski" and was made of two unfinished regular skis to permit joining them.The reverse is occuring here in this set-up.Several arrangements are typical to this.Here Dan Lyon and Gregg Olson made this one.Others called the "fat ski" also "voile split decision" among others are being tried out.The photo above,left shows the snowboard assembled while the one at right illustrates its seperation. (jan16,02)Should the two halves remain attached and the binbings be located side by side the skier could monoski as well as snowboard using one investment .What is required with the soft boots though is a knee harness as suggested in text at Image 18 below. (cont)In this second image...Here's my Monoski and unlike the Snowboard, ski poles can be used for propelling oneself on shallow inclines or flat ground. See my MONO SKI PATENT BELOW,also view the 'AIRBORNE' image below to give an idea of it's capability in comparison to other modes The following are some existing patents of other split boards.The monoski photo shows the one I invented in 1961. The airborne photo was taken recently.Click on all of them.



The 'AIRBORNE' image below to give an idea of it's capability in comparison to other modes

(IMAGE N.18b)


Click here for my 1964 "MONOSKI" U.S.Patent No. 3154312(image and text)The 'AIRBORNE' image below to give an idea of it's capability in comparison to other modes

(IMAGE N.18c)


(IMAGE N.18d)Here are 3 possibilities as suggested.

In image below, "both ways" an old issue,depicts a snow board that splits to convert into a pair of skis and by shifting the bindings it also permits using it as my monoski also. Now, in the photos above on the right Burton sells(see Patent Numbers above) a split board for use to walk cross-country with heel free attachments and which is shown in the two different modes. In the center image I'm showing a sketch with identical base ring mountings permitting fastening boots in a heel down position to either snow board or monoski using existing available components (but ,no cross-country attachments in that arrangement and thus no split board in this case. Now , at left using the same components as in the center but like in the 'both ways' sketch below we again split the board in three parts. Dowel pins mounted on the center(white)piece are for firmness when assembled. When seperated it is set aside on the auto rack maybe while the outer boards become a pair of skis. So we now have three possibilities to participate for snow boarding, for monoskiing, and regular skiing using the binding position also used for monoskiing. Except for snowboarding poles will be needed. Therefore with one investment,we have three methods of riding downhill.If soft boots are the choice, then the knee harness attachment suggested below could be used for the same stability as riding with the rigid boots.(cont.)


(IMAGE NO.18f)(March 3rd,2003)Here above is a conversion kit monoski (in the right side of the photo) also shown seperated to provide a regular pair of skis (shown disassembled in the left side of the photo)and also permitting the the two possibilities. Using only a roller blade wheel wrench the skier after monosking all morning ,at lunch time, goes down to his car,removes the center filler, puts it on his roof and is ready to ride the moguls all after noon with the skis. After lunch of course. As you may notice the center filler has securing and positioning pins that match holes in the skis so that when all three are put together the cross bars straddles them and secures everything into one solid monoski board.So here also with one investment you can do both challenges. In this photo a pair of NORDICA skis are shown but any others could also be used and the central spacer could be of any width to suit whatever width of board is needed or wanted by the users.The cross tie-bars could have screws with retainer rings to prevent any losing of them while assembling or vice-versa. When seperated the crossbars could positioned linearly onto and fastened loosely to the central filler.I rejected using thumb screws because they'd protrude and could be a hazard. My experience when I built the original MONOSKI (see 1964 U.S.Patent 3154312) above in which dowel pins were positioned centrally between the two halves was proven to be very secure and rigid as one piece and I'm quite sure the same would hold true here.The holes if also located on both sides of each ski could provide longer wear on the edges before rehoning. More details in these designs will be added later. Should any entrepreneur or manufacturer be interested in this concept for multi option skiing let me know. I could probably even help them capitalize on this idea with patent protection as well as the 'nuts and bolts' to build them (see index1a, my resume). I'm too old at this time to even try going it alone. I'd just settle maybe for a minimal royalty instead. (cont)

(IMAGE NO.18f)(March 10th,2003)How about a monoski and snowboard combined? This board is not split only the mountings can be switched very quickly. What is needed(cont)

(IMAGE NO.18e)(for Sweden-or Norway should Sweden refuse).In 1961 I asked a ski mfrg co. in Champlain N.Y. provide me with two skis unaltered in the insides so I could butt them together to form a single wide ski.Up in Pico Peak, Vermont when I first used it they all laughed. No more...! My patent,No. 3154312 titled MONO SKI expired in 1981. Now its History. This new idea (right)"both ways"expands on it in that it permits its disassembly to convert it for both modes of riding the snow. The image at top right shows a snow boarder riding deep powder in the A.M.(since then our friend "McDonald" copied this in their ads on N.Y.C.buses.)then at lunch time rearrange the board into a pair of skis to use in the P.M. as shown at bottom right.One may notice a pair of knee harnesses with tethers snapped to the tips and tails of the skis giving the same stability as rigid boots for maneuvering. thus with only one investment both modes are available and with minimum equipment. The bottom left sketches depict how the conversion takes place.With quick snap bindings(I'll design them if need be.)that can be relocated longitudinally like regular skis,and cross latches permitting the removal of the central piece to leave behind (on car roof maybe?)while off you go to the deep moguls with your buddies permitting different challenges.Another idea for a snow board will besome time soon presented in the "rag",it'll really change snowboarding as we now know it. Note:(April 24 2001)This arrangement can also permit monoskiing by mounting the bindings side by side and leaving the board in one piece thus permiting three modes of skiing,Monoskiing,Snowboarding and the Regular Skiing..Using Rigid Ski Boots and corresponding bindings can also be an alternative. Here again only one investment could permit using all 3 modes. "Hang in there." Type here

(IMAGE NO.19)(for South Africa)It's a self-charging electric bicycle. No need plugging in to charge batteries.Many new electric bikes require either that a recharged battery replace the used-up one or as mentioned, plug in and wait. This bike doesn't need to do any of this.You charge it as you peddle along. as you may see within the triangular frame is the permanently affixed battery. Should you want to see the bike go into "" When the index appears hit "elcbk.gif" and use horizontal curser as well as the vertical one to view it all.(cont) Type here.

(IMAGE NO.20)(For Lebanon and Syria) It can be fastest sail boat yet.Although this sketch illustrates vertical foils , sails can be a substitute for them. See the bottom of the next image as an example.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20a)(For Lebanon and Syria) The image above depicts a regatta race with these new TRI-CATs. As we can see above the leading one has sails substituting the foils.Because of more surface resistance they may displace it faster but more control activity may be needed from the navigator (cont)

(IMAGE NO.20aa)In 20a several years back it was to be the fastest yet and my bet is still on...Here is my TRI_CAT design from Image 20 above but with an extended deck giving it even more stability with less pressure on the downwind hull (acting as outrigger) yet adding little extra total weight to the boat.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20b) This (Hobie)68k/h(42.5 mph) Ketterman TriFoiler above 'IS' the fastest sail boat yet... for now, but once we build and try out a prototype of the TRI-CAT in the above sketches it may no longer be 'top dog'(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20bb)(Its 2002)This is now the fastest.Just recently in Australia a new record was achieved by this Yellow pages ENDEAVOUR. Here's its MAXIMUM SPEED = 86.16 km/h - 53.53 mph - 46.52 knots. Its copying my tripod concept also and it'll even go faster when three vertical wing foils are installed over each of the three corner pontoons with or even without hydrofoils. (cont)

(IMAGE NO.20bab)June6,2002-And now this new land TriPod Sail Is breaking records. It's called Windjet.Again,like my TRI-CAT when they will put foils in all three corners above the wheels with the capability to rotate the vehicle to optimize its performance regardless of wind direction it will go even faster.The same would hold true for riding on ice with sled or skate runners for winter use on frozen lakes.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20bba)This TRI-CAT is even bigger than in 20aa above .The deck platform as you may notice is raised quite higher than the mast bearing housings to permit sailing in extreme wind and wave conditions permitting even higher speeds also in circuit racing.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20bbb)This(in the 2 photos above)is a similar TRI-CAT boat as the open webbed platform one prior to that but has an enclosed cabin permitting not only racing it in inclement weather but can also be used to transport people such as the use for ferrying passengers or even owned by individuals for their private use. By-wire controls with hydraulics, servos, and gyros would also permit hull,rudder and foil positioning without the need for cables and pulleys used in the smaller ones shown previously.Eventually even bigger ones with a thousand passengers could be used for world-wide voyages.Much more detailed info will be available when interest in building it develops.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20bbc)Here is acomparable view of both boats above. As suggested over a decade ago they will be the fastest yet and as you may notice in 20bb the"yellow page ENDEAVOUR" is using the triangular hull position to obtain more speed, but the triple vertical wing foils can displace it much faster and require minimal structures.(cont)< /td>

(IMAGE NO.20c) This ChrisCraft power boat can become one way of permitting launches for kite surfers without restrictions caused by un favorable wind directions or refusal by local towns permitting take offs from their beaches. As we can see the rear of the boat has the means to permit adapting a launch platform onto its existing protrusion at the back. (cont)

(IMAGE NO.20d)KITE SURFING IS TAKING OFF! Surfboarders and windsurfers have now a new sport option. It's a kite that can tow them even into the air or anywhere on the water. (cont)

(IMAGE NO.20e)Here's a 22foot Chris Craft that can be, with a launch platform, used to for take-off regardless of wind direction(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20f) Like the platform above in Image 20e the platform is retractable when running the boat. Once stopped it can be extended for launching kite surfers. Parking and anchoring out from shore the boat will position itself downwind and thus be in a good position for lanching all kite surfers. once afloat he can travel for miles and when tired head for shore. he then packs every thing into a rollbag between his foot harnesses on the board, walks to the train station and rides back to the launch boat again for another blast off.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20g)Here 's the kite surfer being readied for launch. Oddly enough this Chris Craft is the 'launch 22', after this maybe they'll rename 'launch pad 22'. One advantage to using a boat, the wind could blow from any direction . You drop anchor a few hundred feet from shore and you're off.(cont)

(IMAGE NO.20h)The image above shows part of New Jersey coast line where in this instance the boat is parked in Bay Head, N.J. In the sketch shown in inset at left the wind is blowing West by Northwest towards the beach . Regardless, the kitesurfer can head direct north and head to Asbury Park. There,he can ride the train back ,or take a bus, a taxi or hitch hike back. A friend of mine, Ted Smith in Bay Head,

owns a sport store for surfboarders, wind surfers and kite surfers at with quite a selection of other sporting equipment. Should anyone have an interest in the launching idea above, contact and suggest it to him. His address is at 520 Main Ave.and phone (732)899-9394(cont)

(IMAGE NO.21)BELOW Here's an idea to be considered by medical supply companies.It's a SURGICAL ZIPPER stuck to the patient to be operated on. As you open it an incision occurs, when done upon closing, the skin tissue returns to the exact position as before the cut was made.

(IMAGE NO.21) It leaves no scars. Just glue on a zipper and proceed as shown inthe following sequences.(cont)
