The Vetter/Zero proto is what I would fund if I was a zillionaire...Tesla already exists, and this needs to exist too.

Don't know how I missed these articles for so long :oops:

It has been such honor and a once in a lifetime experience to know Luke over the years... I have said from the beginning, that Luke is this generation's Edison!

It is fulfilling to see him have the laboratories, support and life to fulfill his love to search the limits of our creation.

Best wishes for many more years of testing, searching and creating!

All the best,
bigMoose

Well done Luke.
I recently read these articles. It's great to hear that your skills are in such high demand and that you are doing so many cool projects. Good on you, it sounds like you are really living the dream.
Luke was very supportive of my first forays into this whole ebike thing and 5 years later we have a small business that provides for me, my family and several employees. I'd also like to think in our own little way, we're doing something good by getting people onto ebikes and have helped to move the whole scene along in some small way. Without Luke basically vouching for me, it would have been much harder to get accepted and win the trust of people back then.
I'd be honoured if i could bring you out for a few beers or whatever sometime, either in Shanghai if you ever get over, or on 1 of my trips to the USA. I never forgot the support you gave me back then and if there's anything I could do to help now, please give me a shout :D
Many thanks

yeah..he's no dezso molnar :wink:

and speaking of flying cars & other 60's tech...
reading between the lines regarding lucas' HV experiments,
take it to mean this is basic EHD homework for your own ionocraft/es-lifter?

Dezso is a good friend, amazing human being, and I'm helping support his electric flying machine racing efforts. :-)

I've always enjoyed reading LFP's posts here in ES and they've stuck with me, but i never figured why, then I read this:
You're one of the most enthusiastic people I think I've ever met.
And I realized that Luke's enthusiasm underlies almost every post and makes it stand out against all the others.

Thanks for all of your contributions here and in the wider world, helping all living things, Luke.

Terry is awesome!!!

Great photo with Mate Rimac and Terry and I at my house in the article.

Lukes contribution to the Electric Revolution is unquestionably...

........................... One for the record books

No other person pushed my personal boundaries further than Lucas Workman.

I continue to vouch for Luke (in the same way I did when I baited him over to this forum... from some RC Car forum...)
and
In the same words I gave the VP at Zero when he came to my car window (as I dropped his ass off from the Airport...)


Quote: "The man is a frocking genius. Unlike any other... thats all I can tell you. I just met him face to face 30 min ago."


Congratulations liveforphysics.
You made your mark and no doubt made your father proud.

For the most part... you have been able to blaze a dangerous and unknown trail... without leaving a wake of dead and maimed bodies.

I especially respect your decision to rally against the war machine... and to settle down with a wife... and to practice a meditation.

We do not see eye to eye on many decisions.
Our boundaries are very different in ethics, business, rules of engagement, and rules in general.
Our vision of the future is very different... but I will tell you this...

"Lucas Workman has the biggest, ... hairiest,... most engorged pair of balls... that I have ever closely inspected :shock:
on any Man, Woman, or non-human"

.
.
.


If you have a BIG battle ahead..., you want Luke on your team.
Watch out tho -
He is a FIERCE competitor.


Luke -
I love you in the way that I would love a son who... was always smoking cigarettes in the dry leaves... or ... getting girls pregnant... or... firing guns up in the air. :cry:

When I vouch for someone I take responsibly for their performance.
Not credit
RESPONSIBILITY

You may or may not understand.
and I have been bit by your sheep many times.

People need a leader.

You are a STAND OUT leader of the ELECTRIC REVOLUTION

That was so kind Methods!! Thank you kindly bro!!!

The universe has been so incredibly kind to me, it's a pleasure to give back to all living beings however I'm able.

I ask the universe for the most challenging technical issues humans have encountered, and then tackle them using every bit of skill and experience I can gather until resolution is discovered. My body is a fleeting loan of energy from the universe, and I feel the sand in the hourglass running out is unstoppable and finite, but before it's empty this fire inside will keep burning and fueling every contribution I can offer towards the benefit of all living beings. I love all my shipmates on this beautiful blue marble and appreciate the value in keeping this incredible organically filtered life-support system operational for as long as possible to hand over a spaceship in a better state of survival opportunity than I found it.

There will always be folks way more brave, way better riders, way better scientists, and way more powerful intellect minds, but perhaps few foolish enough to seek out and tangle with only the worlds most difficult technical challenges with the manic drive of a mad-man to keep failing time after time until a solution arises out of the discovery in the sea of failed attempts.

Unlimited Love,

Technically, it was the ES member Farfle cutting me, who happens to be an impressively well trained and experienced trauma medic and vet-medic, and I was perfectly comfortable and at ease enjoying the unique sensations of the install process.

The day after install, an un-planned bicycle bunny-hopping contest occurred, and the superglue popped off and it bled and I couldn't feel the magnet inside anymore, until I experimented with a large neodymium magnet near it, and it felt like being shocked with maybe 150vdc range shock from elbow to spine. I left a mild magnet superglued to the back side of the finger and re-glued the cut closed and made an effort to be gentle with it for a few days to heal. For the first week I could only detect large magnets, and it gave me the sensation of being shocked, initially in my elbow, but then began to feel like shocks between individual ribs across the center of my back. I trained whenever possible by moving the magnet over my phone speakers and microphone areas, and eventually the sensation moved from feeling like shocks between opposite ribs in my back, to feeling like a unique sensation in my fingertip. By a few weeks in, I could just feel the AC charge lines of my DSR's J1772 station and know that it was pulling max current. I could also hold sphere or cube magnets and easily feel the shape of the torroidal field around them to see polarization axis. It was also by playing with some really big magnets showing how it would pull the skin towards it notably, it ended up bruising the skin over it and was painful to touch magnets afterwards for a few days. After that I could still sense AC current fine, but it was always a little uncomfortable, and the area over it stayed bruised/discolored. I don't even know when it came out, but one day I went to lift a paperclip with it and noticed they didn't stick anymore, and experimented with magnets and felt nothing from it since.

That prototype magnet used a plating of nickel coated with silver coated with Rhodium. My silver coating was intentionally grown heavy and dendritic because my objective was maximum nerve bed sensitivity. Rhodium has a medical history of staying electrically conductive and biocompatible in nerve tissues and having nerve tissues.

Having done it once now, with the intent to be maximum nerve bed sensory coupling, and loved the function of having an added useful human sense, I came away from it learning that the nerve bed couples really well, and you likely don't need a conductive spikey ball of conductive metal, though it did couple field sensation well.

Before my own came back out, I made a half dozen more with a better plating process that included alternating 4 layers of Gold and Rhodium and ending with a relatively smooth surface vs dendritic surface. These were installed in folks who all loved them for about 2 months or so before their bodies rejected them. Ending in gold or ending in rhodium didn't make a difference.

For this reason, my V2.0 will be plated in 4 layers of alternating Gold and Rhodium for corrosion resistance to encapsulate the magnet metal ions from diffusing out, and FEP polymer outer coating, and polished to be all smooth edges vs rough cylinder edges.

Happy to send coated magnets for free to whomever wants to beta, because getting making 1 figured out is >95% of the work of making a batch of a few after the process is figured out.
