Press Release Summary: Futuristic Technology Challenges, One Environmental, One Social, Needs You.
Press Release Body: Vancouver BC, February 21, 2008. Pacific Way Foundation, incorporated in 2001 as an educational non-profit, launched www.CPrize.org with two challenges and a handful of proposed challenges. Pacific Way pledged multimillion dollar schools it owns outright in the short-term absence of matching grants, sponsors or donors; and is preparing to fundraise the rest via business using www.buyorsell.it
Two Technology Challenges offer $25 and $15 million dollar prizes, one aimed at highspeed, cheap transportation with environmental benefits, which competes head-on with the Google Lunar X-prize, making rocket transport for their lunar landing obsolete. No fuels are burned in the HiBots Challenge, only electrograviticmagnetic forces are used. Some think the models look like a UFO.
Life-Phaser challenge is a social remedy aimed at security and law enforcement. It protects the lives of offenders in the course of enforcement duty. Deaths caused by firearms and tasers may become criminal offences once this challenge is won. One point to note: the first color LCD screens we take for granted were a million dollar technology challenge started nearly 20 years ago. Would notebook computer screens, Blackberries and iPhones exist without its winners?
Did you want a change from war and killing of innocents, and faster transportation without environmental pollution? International team challengers are welcome. The HiBots challengers material cost of their model is expected to be under $3000 so physics and engineering students without the resources of huge aero-space industries can compete. Life-Phaser costs even less.
Winning teams become world-class heroes. Technology applications spinning from these challenges create leaps forward for both science, and humanity. HiBots success provides a reasonable preemptive alternative to nuking astronomic threats and doomsday concerns like Deep Impact which is expected to threaten our world in the generation ahead.
Historic and prophetic evidence for this form of transportation exists. Some people say the technology already is here 'somewhere', in arcane settings, Area 51 or 'elsewhere'. Yet since no commercial purposes exist yet, teams are invited to apply their dreams, visions and hands to the challenge and create a new technology. Teams are given a major clue how to find the technology and ways to decipher the clues provided. Teams also become partners in a creative, peaceful future. Visionaries see ways to achieve the desired result, sceptics won't.
