Bubbles are Secret of Breakthrough Technology
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 1999--
Humans evolved from bubbles, according to the inventor of a breakthrough
technology that uses the geometry of bubbles to increase the strength
of most materials. Charles Owens told engineers at a university seminar
in Boston that the geometry of cells, including human cells, is based
on the architecture of a froth of bubbles, comparable to soap suds or
the head on a beer. He encouraged engineers to build on this natural architecture
to improve the performance of all materials by making them lighter, stronger
and less costly.
Owens is Chairman of UniStates Technology Company and inventor of Reflexive
Materials Technology(TM) (RMT(TM)). RMT is based on the froth, nature's
most common construction. RMT gives materials a consistent internal geometry
to make them stronger and lighter. With RMT materials, buildings can be
bigger, taller and more open. Airplanes can fly higher, faster and farther.
Cars can travel longer distances on less fuel with less pollution. Computers,
aircraft, autos, buildings, bridges, roads, and numerous other important
things can be cheaper and better.
Owens called on the engineering community to help build ``a new generation
of stronger, lighter, thinner and less expensive materials, products and
structures using RMT.'' Owens called for a paradigm shift in modern engineering.
He said, according to current engineering textbooks, the basic element
of materials engineering is ``a continuous and cohesive 'glob'.'' He said
the glob is a mystical concept because by definition the glob is not composed
of atoms and molecules.
``How can this be science?'' Owens asked. ``There is no scientific evidence
to support the existence of continuous and cohesive globs of indeterminate
size and composition.'' Owens called on engineers to forsake the metaphysics
of ``the glob'' in modern engineering practices in favor of the science
of RMT, which offers both a scientific explanation of materials and the
technology to improve their performance.
RMT is a newly patented architecture for materials to optimize the strength
of products and structures. It is an improvement on the froth's design,
Owens said. ``A froth is the model for all cellular systems - biological,
chemical, and physical. RMT uses 'distributed porosity' to improve on
nature's model and allows us to make better products for consumers and
Owens spoke at a seminar on RMT at the invitation of the Tufts University
College of Engineering. His presentation was entitled ``The Origin of
Substance.'' A copy of his paper of the same title is available at the
UniStates' Website, http://unistates.com/rmt/explained/origin/
