Vestigia terrent.

They are claiming something three orders of magnitude more powerful than 
existing energy storage (using two useless illustrations as 
illustrations of this!) They are unwilling to show anybody how it works 
even under NDA, yet constantly claim they are very close to produce 
things commercially. They have a choir of supporters who love the idea 
because it would be so good if it was true.

In short, it looks like BlackLight Power. Or Josef Papp's engine. Or 
Perrigo's, Keely's, Redheffer's or any of the others.

If I came up with a technology that was potentially world-changing I 
would make sure to make it and its launch as different as possible from 
past frauds. Sure, I might want to make loads of money, but that is what 
patents, NDAs and good lawyers are for - secret ingredients do not work
