Well gee then, why doesn't every company that makes bread own their own wheat farms? Because others are better equipped to handle the economy of scale involved in testing. Even Fortune 100 companies send products to professional testing labs to provide them with data on their prototypes. How do I know this? I used to work for one.
Do you know how many inventions have changed the world in some form or another that have come from someone's basement? Go watch Flash of Genius. It is a cheesy way to make my point, but it does. 50% is by no means likely to be achievable, but it is in no way impossible.There are too many unknowns in the universe we live in to be making claims like this. We have no idea if he is simply trying to improve a long time existing and tweaked technology of a brick of copper on something, or if he has come up with a fundamental change to allow that increase.
There is no need for everyone here to be a&&hats toward the guy. Let him fail on his own. He as well as every other inventor doesn't need your negative, nothing achieving, "Fail, Fail, Fail", chanting. Doing so as far as I can tell has no positive outcome, but could cause an otherwise industrious person to give up. Quit tearing people down, and aim to build them up. Your life, and the life of everyone around you will be much better for it.
BTW. This isn't just aimed at you, but everyone in the thread with that attitude.Edited by Daetlus - 2/22/11 at 3:28pm
