    Video: LiquidPiston’s 70cc Rotary Engine Spins to 10,000 RPM



    Yes, what you’re looking at is a real rotary engine that is just a little bit bigger than an iPhone. This innovative little 4-stroke motor can produce 5 horsepower at 10,000 rpm and do so with only two moving parts. Officially unveiled by LiquidPiston during November’s SAE International/JSAE 2014 Small Engine Technology Conference in Italy, the “X Mini” is the successor to the company’s initial four-pound prototype that expelled 3.5 horsepower at 10,000 rpm.

    Unlike its predecessor, Liquid Piston says that once finalized, X Mini could spin 15,000 rpm making more than five horsepower while weighing only three pounds. “The X Mini is an incredible breakthrough, and we expect to further optimize the engine for increased power (greater than 5 horsepower) and efficiency, and even lower operational noise,” says Dr. Alexander Shkolnik, president and co-founder of LiquidPiston.

    Thank you, sir! Yes, it was fun (despite the three loads of dishes necessary to clear the aftermath.) I hope you and yours did the same!

    I'm always looking for a good story, so it makes me happy that so many find interest what I find. Keeping the fires burning through the winter is a little tougher than say, summertime. So again, thanks!
