Massive Yet Tiny (MYT) Engine Going to Production
World famous inventor, Raphial Morgado, sets forth plan for technology roll-out without needing auto maker's cooperation. One of Angel Labs' retrofit engines the size of an alternator could replace an SUV engine, increasing performance, and yielding mileage as good as a Prius.
Last night I was fortunate to be able to be the first to interview Raphial RG Morgado, famous inventor of the Massive Yet Tiny (or MYT) Engine,
after nearly two years of silence. (Download

The big news that we were able to break on that show was that they are now ready
to go into production, being up and running as soon as possibly six to twelve
months from now. Because the engine has so few moving parts and its
design is so simple, it wouldn't take nearly as long to get into production as
We're talking an engine that is so compact it could replace an SUV's engine with
something nearly as small and light as the alternator, but would
have more power, all while making the mileage comparable to
Totally stunning stuff.
Rather than wait for a huge contract to build new vehicles from the ground up, Morgado's
company, Angel Labs LLC, finally decided to just forge ahead with a retrofit
paradigm. They are looking for someone with $10 million to head up the
franchising of retrofit garages that would replace existing engines with their
engine. Morgado would handle the production -- something he's done before,
with some 150 inventions to his name. The $10 million is needed for
building the production plant.
Morgado anticipates that before long, this network of production and franchises
could employ 2-3 million employees -- as many as have been left unemployed in
the recent months of economic downturn -- all while helping people save money on
fuel, as well as increasing the performance of their vehicles. The
resulting reduction of fuel consumption could soon be enough to remove our dependence
on oil from not-so-friendly nations. One of his biggest customers standing
in line is the U.S. Military, who wants an exclusive on production until they
are fitted, but Morgado wants the technology to also be available to the
The MYT engine is a super compact yet powerful internal combustion engine that
has captured the imagination of thousands from around the world. Morgado
said that someone from the U.S. Patent office told him that his MYT
patent was the most downloaded patent in the USPTO history. It features multiple firings in one cycle to give 40 times higher power to weight ratio, fewer
parts, low maintenance, high mechanical efficiency and low pollution.
Though diesel or biodiesel is the fuel of choice for this engine because of its
compression ignition design, the engine could also (with appropriate
modifications) run on most any other fuel as well, including hydrogen, natural
gas, ethanol, or gasoline. An advantage of burning diesel in the engine is
that it provides its own lubrication, so no engine oil would need to be
used. Also, the present infrastructure is already set up for diesel
The newer engine design recently completed is even better: smaller, more efficient and
fewer parts. A patent filing is pending on that one.
Even though the overall engine size is tiny in comparison, the astonishing part
is that the rotating cylinder displacement is essentially the same as the piston
cylinder displacement of the engine it replaces. Morgado says that his
engine uses essentially the same technology as the typical internal combustion
engine, but he just combines it in a different way, and in so doing is able to
get rid of quite a few things, including the valves, camshaft, cylinder heads
and radiator system.
In April of 2006, Morgado and his company, Angel Labs LLC, received First-Prize in the "Create the Future" Design Contest by
Emhart-NASA Tech Briefs.
"In 2005, a highly prestigious competition was sponsored by NASA
and Emhart Technologies, known as the 'Create the Future' contest.
Create the Future had over 1000 entries from 31 countries.
Inventions were submitted from some of the most brilliant minds and
successful design teams of any century [including Boeing, Xerox, United
Technologies, Caterpillar, Rockwell Automation, Ford, GE, SAE Systems,
Raytheon]. The panel of judges included experts from some of the most
advanced research groups and technology companies in history. The
winners were announced ... in New York City. The first prize
winner was Raphial Morgado and team members of Angel Labs LLC." (YouTube;

Angel Labs featured the motor at the SEMA Show in Nov. of 2005, and then the LA Auto Show in Jan. of
2006, where thousands of people saw it in operation. Many feature pages,
stories and videos have been posted
on the web about this technology.
Raphial Morgado provides an in-depth
overview of the engine during the Los Angeles Auto-Show, where he
described the goals behind the $4 million dollar R&D project, his
personal interest in emerging engine technologies, and the remarkable
features of the MYT engine technology. (YouTube;

One of the skeptical comments I've encountered regarding this
technology is that the prototypes have mainly only been run on compressed air, not actual fuel.
Morgado set the record straight last night on that one. The prototype he
ran in the shows ran by compressed air, but earlier versions were run on fuel
for at least six months before they integrated the compressed air for safety and
ease in indoor demonstrations.
It turns out that the design is not just suitable for replacing engines, but it
is also ideal for a number of other fields of use, including as mentioned,
pneumatic engines, for which it is ideal. It is also ideal for other
systems, such as geothermal, hydro, and steam. Morgado says that it is the
only engine in the world that can handle all three fluid/gas components well at
the same time: volume, flow, and pressure. Other systems can handle one or
two of these at the same time, but not all three. So not only can this
engine revolutionize the engine industry, but it could also revolutionize the
turbine industry. No wonder Morgado says it will bring about the
"next Industrial Revolution!"

On Jan. 12, 2009, Raphial Morgado joined me on the Free Energy Now radio show.
It was the first interview he's given in nearly two years, now that he's
ready to let the world know about his latest news
