PTO Requests Model of Warp Drive Invention

The Worsley-Twist warp drive does not depend upon traditional emissions of matter to create thrust.  Rather, the drive creates a change in the curvature of the space-time continuum — thus allowing travel by warping space-time.  Worsley & Twist patent application recently suffered another setback. The Examiner has now requested a working model:

Applicant is required to furnish a model of the instant invention. 35 U.S.C. 114. See Also 37 C.F.R. 1.91.

Among other rejections, the Examiner has asserted a rejection under 35 U.S.C. 101 for lack of utility — finding that the invention is inoperable.

    I’m not sure what the hold-up is… maybe they have re-thought their stance on how this is going to actually make the company any money. Or perhaps their lawyers pointed out the liability of providing agents a platform to stick their feet in their mouth. Whatever it is, it’s hardly something I’d claim as being “Well done”.

    All humor aside, the failures of this patent are most predominant in that it is blatantly built off the patented work of Henry Wallace, without his knowledge of odd nuclear spin values. Superconductive materials are of little use in this theoretical patent because the applicants are not harnessing the proper elements for the electrogravitic effect. The recipient materials need to have the high differential of odd nuclear spin values to maximize the propulsive effect. Trying to use a commutator further inhibits the success factor as it is grossly inefficient, when square pulses of high voltage can be effectively created with current technology. Only by implementing the knowledge and work of Townsend Brown with that of Henry Wallace, in a complete re-write of this patent, could there be any hope of success. Unfortunately for the applicants, this matter has been publicly disclosed at link to youtube.com ; also see Volume II of the UFO How-To series, and “The Basics” under the same series (ufohowto.com).

    Somebody patented my original design against my wishes.
    I redesigned it and got a Provisional Patent, then I published it on the Internet.
    The new one is public domain.
    Nobody can ever claim it as their own.
    It belongs to the world.

    My dear!

    Sorry, your patent will never working. It is totaly wrong! You must start from electron positron anihilation to making atomic power gravitation wavings (GW). From GW it is need to clean positive energy and from negative energy makes GW decomposition and amplifying only longitudinal and one transversal GW components.
    Please, look at link to geocities.com

    Warp Drive Patent

    Patently-O has reported that the USPTO has required the patentee ofย  US Application entitled Worsley Twist Warp Drive (Publication US2003/0114313) to provide a working specimen of the invention.
    Now typically, the USPTO does not require …

    OK, after all these comments…did anybody take a real, good, close look at the illustrations?

    “Two vertical walls” that separate two “motors” that power up an “ultracentrifugational axle” that opposingly spins against a “spherical superconductor” sheathed in a “supercooled jacket”?

    Mr. Worsley and Mr. Twist are trying to patent safe sex.

  7. 60

    The theoretical section is very interesting. There must be some truth to it if the numbers are matching experimental values. Could a device be built on a smaller scale that would generate a smaller force that could say decrease the weight of an object inside this graviton field?

  8. 59

    Dennis — more interesting to me than any crank invention are the notions that an examiner can require a working model and that the invention obey physicial laws. I thought neither was a requirement for obtaining a patent in the US. What is the actual law in this case? Thanks.

    I swear if I have to read another “I’m going to patent the idea of patenting stupid patents” crack again I’M going to patent the process of posting jokes that have been used a bajillion times.

  10. 56

    Yeah, they should be able to do it with a couple of dylithium crystals… But then again, you would need an anti-matter graviton field in order to stow them anywhere in a stable state.

  11. 55

    Oh darn. Warp drive patent denied. Again.

    This is timely news, I guess, considering that Scotty will soon be blasted into space one final time. He certainly would be disappointed. I know I am, as I had such high hopes for this patent application. You see, once…

    Just so happens my neighbor(who happens to be Ferengi) says he could lay hishands on a quantity of dilithium crystals at a nominal cost…he does state however that the refining proccess is extra.

    Actually bending space-time and moving space through you (as opposed to moving through space) would propel you faster than light (instant?) and there would be no real time difference between what you feel and earthlings feel.

  16. 48

    Hey guys hate to break it to you I believe the device is of a mechanical nature and uses magnetic fields to create a bubble of space that exists in another reality where physics follow diff. laws. The only input would be energy to turn the magnets causing the two fields to interact with each other. It does not work like the theories in any scifi show you have ever seen. But the principal is closest to the warp drive in Star Trek and no where close to a Stargate that works on a whole other principal. But I have to agree a stargate is a much more interesting way however impossible at present it may be.

  17. 46

    Err… I tell you, next thing we will have a Parabolic Time Chamber, where you can spend two years in there, with an equivalence to one day earth time! Imagine the wonders!

    Noobs.

  18. 45

    Actually the above posters are correct. Antimatter is essentially contained in magnetic fields.

    Matter/Antimatter reactions actually do produce large amounts of energy. The problem is that antimatter is not an abundant resource and currently we do not have an efficient way to create antimatter in large quantities.

    One word for you guys: Wormhole. It’s way better than this warp drive crap. The amount of refined naquida requred to make a ship capable of interstellar space travel alone would make this plan completely unfeasable. Not to mention the fact that in travelling in a warp drive at such a high velocity, even with time compesation would cause years to pass outside of the warp drive’s field. Let’s stick with things we know work, like ZPE.

    We replaced this warp drive’s dilithium crystals with Folgers crystals…..do you think they will notice?

    I’m pretty sure anti-matter could be contained within a strong magnetic field. It’s how they contain super-high temp plasma in structures it should burn straight through.

    The plasma never actually touches the walls of the container.

  23. 38

    this is ridiculous, if it can’t be patented, who’s going to have the incentive to develop one? how will the vulcans ever contact us then.

  24. 34

    “It should be no problem to develop a working model of this — once they locate a supply of dilithium crystals.”

    What they are not telling us is that they already have found a supply.

    Nah, Walmart’s Dilithium Crystals are mined in South America, they have too many flaws, would result in an antimatter inbalance ahd cause a warp core dump and possibly a catastrophy if too close to an inhabited planet.

    Quick, seize him, he’s an imposter! Even the captain knows that the anti-matter must be stored using magnetic confinement.

    Oh no, it’s too late, our phasers have quit working due to a patent injunction…. we’re all going to die!

    I wish they had let this go through. I would have enjoyed Paramount suing (and winning) rights to the warp drive patent. So fear not .. if this had actually been approved the “federation” would have interceded.

    If you want to bend space time get some vice grips and a swatch. (and some safety glasses those things really explode .. )

    You could always find the nuculear vessels and use a device to steal some nuclear energy to recharge the dilithium crystals.

    It is interesting to me that the patent examiner has required the applicant ‘to furnish a model of the instant invention’ every time the application was rejected (9/04 – non-final, 5/05 – final, and 1/06 – non-final).

    Only in addition to this has the examiner required different (non- theoretical) language, which the applicant has actually paid attention to.

    Locate dilithium crystals? Everybody knows you can get them at Rigel XII. Getting there without the warp drive, or beautful women might be a problem, though.
