    Yes, that is a hoax. The company has been around for a while. Every now and then someone inexplicably does a news story about them and doesn't mention that their patents were actually revoked (unprecidented!) because while they were able to fool one patent official, the hoax was revealed in an investigation. The guy will lay low until people forget he's a hoaxter, then he'll cash in on fresh gullibility and short attention-span every 5-10 years.

    We have a thread in S&D about it, so I'm locking this: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=98326
