It may "rule" in concept, but here's what others say who have given feedback discussing it on another board:

...sounds too good to be true. Also, their website navigation sucks, with what looks like a master menu to change depending on page.

Their technical explanations too often lead to "it will not break because it is based upon 100 years of engineering design"

The guy is a fuckin' nutcase! I had a long talk with him at the L.A. Auto Show. He's a verifiable Section 8 all the way. The engine doesn't run, never has...only rotates on compressed air. He claims 814lb-ft of torque from 150psi compressed air input...on what dyno? An Ingersoll-Rand IR295 1" impact makes 1000lb-ft at 150psi...doesn't mean I'm gonna drive a vehicle's axles with it down the road. He claims he was "A specially chosen one by God" to design machines to save the world. This guy reminds me a lot of another crackpot I know named Larry Widmer...
