My brother Gavin is in the finals for a UK architecture competition and would be very grateful to get a supporting vote for his "Treetops" design !

I got my Patented Propeller Prototype made

I got my Patented Propeller Prototype made, yay!
Now I'm looking for some help in product testing with fluid dynamics.

Before building a full scale product, I would like to optimise the design to produce a more efficient development of the design for further 3D modifications to blade shape.

I was thinking to try and optimise it for max speed around 6000 rpm (typical outboard motor rpm). Really I'd like to break the world water speed record and have other ideas around craft design but this is a first step.

I think this is a world first Augmented Reality (AR) Text To Speech (TTS) mobile interface.

I think this is a world first Augmented Reality (AR) Text To Speech (TTS) mobile interface. I'm been managing projects for layar in the past but have now switched to wikitude. I'm still working on this as I'd like to help blind people know what's around them. I'll keep spending my nights and overdraft on this till I have something really useful. Note the sound volume is very low but there is speech that happens when the user is viewing the object. Oh, and yes, I've also been in contact with computer vision glasses makers, waiting for video input to be added to mobiles also.
