Variable compression ratio. It is able to run many different types of fuel.

Their first use will be in the field of robotics, AI (artificial Intelligence), micromachines. Ultimately the military will want their radios to work 24/7 for a week on a single tankful. Eventually this will trickle down to civilian use.
No one will waste their time charging their mobile computing devices. Palmtops and laptops will be truly wireless.
Car makers have also experimented with full size generators. Research into this technology is led by Stetzer Motors of Germany.
