This is your first tangible asset in the invention process, the Provisional Patent Draft-1. This will be your first draft that will be a guideline to producing the actual Provisional Patent submission.
Before we go into the draft writing I am again going to try to express the eminent value of rewriting text as this process of inventing is followed. This has to be done in order to advance the design and value of your invention to others, which is the end goal of the inventor. To have others want, need and feel good about using your product invention after it is reduced to practice. This includes feeling good about the price versus the value that the end users will always determine. If you do not have this focus your invention may become a bad experience for you after people who have purchased your invention express their dicontent of their purchase and want their money back.
Usually the pre marketing evaluation will determine validity of the concept and based on the assumption that what is contended and anticipated by the inventor will actually come to pass in reality, that produces a product that does what is claimed and does it for a long period of time. Since the Patent life is 20 years for a product invention of utility and service the product should be designed to last the life of the patent itself. That will add to the credibility of the inventor in the future when he or she has the idea and needs a manufacturer to make a product prototype for an invention the inventor wants to produce.
In short no independent inventor can become a success unless he or she has all the means and wearwithall to burden necessities required to produce in the trade of inventing products. The list would look like there are impossible goals to reach when independently inventing a product for others to purchase. So inventing is simply communicating an anticipated creation in text form and also communicating verbally with others in a way of learning and understanding that everyone has the right to express their own ideas and thoughts. There is no negativity in invention, a setback is only an opportunity for advancement and efficient change. It is an indicator that needs to be headed to that will potentially lead to betterment of the invention process for the inventor.
For our first draft of the provisional a product that does not exist in the real world is what we write about and the first thing an inventor should do is write a short story about the following items. If there are paragraphs written already within the text of the inventors project notebook this is the time to get them out and compile the following information in outline form.
(a) the product to come from the project is clear, the features are useful and new ; (b) the product to come from the project was positively accepted by 80% of the people it was disclosed to ; (c) those people after hearing the disclosed information were willing to purchase the end product for (x)cash ; (d) the claims you contend your product will accomplish have been clarified ; (e) a minimum of 26 pages (a to z) of text directly relating to your project , that you have written, and in specific, 1.- why you thought of the idea or concept and when did you initially think of it, 2.- what motivates you to continue and how do you claim your new and useful product should have merit, 3.- a description of the new product to come along with a name for it , 4.- why you feel many people will purchase and use your product outcome from your project, 5.- what people have told you regarding their view of your project product to come, 6.- exact details of how the product can be used and made, 7.- who your targeted audience or intended end user will be, 8.- a total of time and materials to date including expences, total cash compensation dollar value.
(f) a sketch of the product invention just to point out the items involved ; (g) drawings of all the items included in the scetch that your product is comprised of ; (h) a detailed description of the invention that refers back to each drawing.
Now take this outline and begin to write your story following these examples of the first draft of the invention Exhibited as an embodiment of Monmotor FIG.1.
As you have contemplated that your invention is new and useful to others the past history and availability of products that are somewhat like your idea that may perform the same type of task as your idea invention should be evaluated and referenced in text by you at this time. If there is nothing out there like what you are attempting to build and your invention is in a new field then you need to find the class your invention falls into
and reference what you anticipate your product to become and this is called the Description Of Prior Art in the draft of the Provisional Patent.
The description of the prior art at this point in the invention process by the inventor allows the inventor to more familurize themselves with their own invention work. The objective in the next several paragraphs is to "intorduce" the invention.
Paragraph one contains information explaining the technology your invention falls into and it's current state today.
The paragraph two describes the available products out there and available to purchase or read about that are the closest to your invention. Read all available material possible relating to prior art of an invention most like yours. Describe the elements of subject matter of the prior art and reference patents or publications if known on the prior art search and evaluation.
Paragraph three would include your opinion and statements of the problems or shortcomings of the reviewed prior art available to purchase. These problems or shortcomings should have a direct link to your benefits that your invention overcomes.
Paragraph four is to re state the shortcomings or deficiencies of the prior art you referenced in the third paragraph and state a need to overcome in the prior art evaluated and written about and suggest some sought after benefit to overcome the written about deficiency. Failed attempts of others in prior art to overcome the problem or deficiency or supply a needed product update can also be included in the final paragraph if known at this time by the inventor.
The inventor should know at this time what his or her invention is to do in specific.
The following text examples our invention model MANMOTOR used in the U-Tube video set "Inventive Mindset".
TheEXAMPLEis the format to follow for writing your Description of your prior art evaluated.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PRIOR ART
In the first paragraph of theDescription of the Prior Artthe inventor needs to write about the individuals or animals that would benefit by using the invention, and what they might be going through in life that could require them to use your product invention. For example I will break this first paragraph up into a couple segments for illustration purposes.
EXAMPLE-1 Many persons and families that need electrical energy to survive every day are enduring hardships by needing electrical energy that is continuing to rise and or fluxuate in price each day, and are effectively held captive by the local electrical power generating plants inasmuch that by lack of payment for the electrical service to the supplying company will result in disconnect of that service until the payment is made up to date or close to that.
NOTE :This is an example of a simple first half of the first paragraph of the Description of the Prior Art.
EXAMPLE-2 Some of these people and families depend on the electricity for storing and preserving food for themselves and many may be enduring hard financial times from unemployment or sporadic work. In todays failing economic structures worldwide and companies going out of business daily due to huge infrastructures that cannot be supported at present within the world events of today, these people may be in grave danger if they cannot afford to preserve their food or if electricity becomes generally unavailable in their area from uncontrollable failures of the electrical power transmission companies.
NOTE:This concludes the second half of the first paragraph.
Paragraph twowill simply recite and tell a short story on what could possibly happen or what could be potentially a hardship situation for either a person or animal as written in paragraph one.
EXAMPLE-3 Without an alternative solution for the electrical flow failures and or disconnected service for failure to pay the electricity transmission companies, these people will move further into poverty and convene into groups wordwide for survival purposes, which will further develop into more degrading situations realized as a person is attempting to survive the elements.
Paragraph three includes a reiterated statement regarding these people or animals that need or will benefit from, and or by using the invention, and that the devices out there and the availability to others of the devices for usage is not satisfying a need, or a shortcoming that your invention is intended to provide.
EXAMPLE-4 Due to the growing numbers of individuals losing their jobs today as buisnesses close worldwide, and others fortunate enough to have work and an income but forced to pay a large amount of their income out to electrical energy that they consume, are all enduring the hardships of today in the scope of high energy costs. These rising costs associated with electrical energy transmission and the lack of availability of fuels used to power electrical generating plants, has resulted in an awareness of people that self sufficiency and survival for themselves and family, may be the next step required for thier own survival in the near future, and including producing their own electrical power demands. This awareness and situation is compelling the designs of new and improved human powered electrical generators by many companies and individuals at present day, that will fill in the void of available products within the scope of prior art within this field.
To complete the second part of paragraph three, we need to do a search for some of the current available art available to purchase, that falls within the human powered electrical generator field. We need to also recite how our invention could help out, but not explain it in detail, just a generic form of how your invention could assist the people that use your invention. Search Results : http://scienceshareware.com/bgsp.htm ,shows simply a pedal flywheel assemble you sit down and pedal, a flywheel rotates and it appears to be no more than one foot in diameter, and attached to a 24vdc permanent magnet generator. You set down in a chair and pedal, no real claims, not available as a product, 200watts claimed=peanuts. It claims you can charge a car battery in 10 to 20 hours.
After searching many more web pages and patents and such shows clearly that this art is realtively open territory for new and useful human energy to electical power devices. In the old days and I mean back to mid 1700's this was a really popular field when they used animals and equipment that required hand power from a human. Then as the search went on the information gathered showed that as soon as electricity became available from Westinghouse the wave of equipment that was used originally as hand powered devices were all re engineered to devices and machines that were driven by rotating wheels and shafts but powered by an electric motor which received the electricity required to power it from the input rotation of an internal combustion engine or boiler system all methods requiring the burning of fuel. It became very easy to extract oil from the earth when the oil days began. The oil would literally shoot up out of the ground due to gas pressure behind the oil and then a pumping system was installed to pump the rest of the oil from the earth. As time passes the oil level in the particular area you are pumping it out of gets lower and then your pumps have to work harder. This increases the costs of pumping the oil in power and also in maintenance costs to operate. Today we are at several points to note, (1) oil is considered hazardous waste today but a hundred years ago it was considered black gold, (2) the price we will be paying for the oil will soon be to much and more than we can afford, when we started pumping it out of the ground in the beginning of the oil era it was literally free for the taking of it, (3) electrical power generating plants need large volumes of fuel and in direct porportion to the output in watts, (4) in addition the distance of transmission of the electrical power and the numbers of people needing the electrical power dictate costs that are added to the cost of the "non delivered" watt.
One of the big reasons nothing has really been done regarding this energy generation field will be included in text to describe the present state of the art. Why has this art form not been developed, it's shortcomings of the prior art and present state of the art will also be added into this second half of the third paragraph. 2nd half of paragraph three :
This has resulted in various attempts from these individuals and small companies to design equipment that has the capability of generating electricity by the application of human input energy. The equipment and machinery designed and currently available all fall short of producing any substantial electrical power and are novel at best, and mostly appear in the form of instructional material of how to build your own bicycle generator, or simply in standalone form. Such devices are commonly capable of charging a car battery within 10 to 20 hours, some produce enough electricity to operate a washing machine for 20 minutes or a computer for a little while, but all fail to supply sufficient electrical power to operate the common household items. These past designs of prior art using human power to convert to electrical power all fall short in supplying a system that would allow an individual to operate as an electrical power plant for a household with storage capabilities. Prior art in machine form is not readily available to the consumer in product form. The ability for a human powered electrical power generator to produce sufficient electricity that would allow these people to survive and preserve their food in times of need would be a great help to those people, and also be an asset to the individual that has lost his or her job and simply move their weight from side to side to produce useable electricity for someone else to use, and in return for the electrical energy, provide some food or money to the individual(s) powering the human powered electricy generator. Many individuals could be combined together at the same time to produce much more capacity of electrical current energy.
fourth paragraph :
In the text of the final paragraph we will get to now recite again what our invention should do to take care of the deficiencies of the prior art and what the human powered electrical generators in the new art forms should have, in order that they can overcome the prior arts deficiencies and or provide a way to overcome what the prior art has failed to provide in features.
EXAMPLE-6 Use as baseline for drafting feature claims
Human Powered Generators must be capable of producing and storing sufficient electrical energy that will allow an entire household to survive it's own electrical demands for at least one 24 hour period in time. Furthermore these generators must also produce the electrical power required to operate the household from human power input at a comfortable level to the individual powering the generator. The movement of the individual instead of the power from the individual will allow the individual powering the generator more endurance. All currently available human powered elecrical generators have designs and constructions which fail to utilyze the weight of the human powering the generator and the amplyfication of it to enhance long term usage and a torque multiplier for the human powering the generator. All prior art available subsequently fall short in the amount of electrical energy generated and or stored, and do not include in their designs and construction the rotating weight necessary to produce and sufficiently store mechanical energy sufficient to produce useable electricity for any extended period of time.
Description of the Prior Art
EXAMPLE-7 MANMOTOR-Provisional Patent Draft -1 Many persons and families that need electrical energy to survive every day are enduring hardships by needing electrical energy that is continuing to rise and or fluxuate in price each day, and are effectively held captive by the local electrical power generating plants inasmuch that by lack of payment for the electrical service to the supplying company will result in disconnect of that service until the payment is made up to date or close to that. Some of these people and families depend on the electricity for storing and preserving food for themselves and many may be enduring hard financial times from unemployment or sporadic work. In todays failing economic structures worldwide and companies going out of business daily due to huge infrastructures that cannot be supported at present within the world economic events of today, these people may be in grave danger if they cannot afford electrical energy to preserve their food or if electricity becomes generally unavailable in their area from uncontrollable failures of the electrical power transmission companies.
Without an alternative solution for the unforseen electrical flow failures and or disconnected service for failure to pay the electricity transmission companies, these people will move further into poverty and conviene into groups wordwide for survival purposes which will further develop into more degrading situations realized by others as well as that person attempting to survive the elements without electrical of gas power.
Due to the growing numbers of individuals losing their jobs today as buisnesses close worldwide, and others fortunate enough to have work and an income but forced to pay a large amount of their income out to electrical energy that they consume, are all enduring the hardships of today in the scope of high energy costs. These rising costs associated with electrical energy transmission, and the lack of availability of fuels used to power electrical generating plants, has resulted in an awareness of people that self sufficiency and survival for themselves and family may be the next step required for thier own survival in the near future including producing their own electrical power demands. This awareness and situation is compelling the designs of new and improved human powered electrical generators by many companies and individuals at present day, that will fill in the void of available products within the scope of prior art within this field. This has resulted in various attempts from these individuals and small companies to design equipment that has the capability of generating electricity by the usage of human input energy. The equipment and machinery designed and currently available all fall short of producing any substantial electrical power and are novel at best, and mostly appear in the form of instructional material of how to build your own bicycle generator, or simply in standalone form. Such devices are commonly capable of charging a car battery within 10 to 20 hours, some produce enough electricity to operate a washing machine for 20 minutes or a computer for a little while, but all fail to supply sufficient electrical power to operate the common household items. These past designs of prior art using human power to convert to electrical power all fall short in supplying a system that could allow an individual to operate as an electrical power plant with storage capabilities to power a household. Prior art in machine form is not readily available to the consumer in turn key product form. The ability for a human powered electrical power generator to produce sufficient electricity that would allow these people to survive and preserve their food in times of need would be a great help to those people, and also could be an asset to the individual that has lost his or her job and allows them to simply move their weight from side to side to produce useable electricity for someone else to use, and in return for their human power effort produce the electrical energy which in turn would provide some food or money to the individual(s) powering the human powered electricity generator.
Human Powered Generators must be capable of producing and storing sufficient electrical energy that will allow an entire household to survive it's own electrical demands for one 24 hour period in time. Furthermore these generators must also produce the electrical power required to operate and sustain the household from human power input at a comfortable level to the individual powering the generator. The movement of the individual instead of the power from the individual will allow the individual powering the generator more endurance. All currently available human powered elecrical generators have designs and constructions which fail to utilyze the weight amplification of the human powering the generator, and the amplyfication of that weight in motion to enhance long term usage and a torque advantages to the human powering the generator. Prior art available substantially fall short in the amount of electrical energy generated and or stored, and do not include in their designs and construction the rotating weight necessary to generate or store mechanical energy sufficient to produce useable electricity for any extended period of time.
Consequently, a need exists for improvements in the design and construction of a Human Powered Electrical Power Generating and Storage System so that the human can sustain long periods of time powering the device without over extending thier own physical limits and moreover a constant motion increasing the operators endurance and muscular range of motion ability within a short period of time, and producing substantially more current in electrical output.
The inventor has written in his or her invention project notebook twice before evaluations on the information needed to construct the Description Of The Prior Art. Now taking the EXAMPLE 6 as read on, the claims of the invention are now drafted in their moast broadest sense. The inventor knows that product sales are a must to make his investment worth an income to keep the inventing process moving forward, gaining popularity with interested people wanting to purchase one. After reviewing this example 6 in the description of the prior art the inventor knows precisely what the invention needs to claim in order for success of the project. Therefore the claims of the invention are now written on in the form they need to be for a submission to the USPTO in a Provisional Patent form to gain the right to apply Patent Pending on the prototype product.
The claims for the provisional need only recite features however when making an invention that you are intending to Patent and license to a company for marketing it is advised that the claims be put into the provisional submission in their broadest sense. The narrowed claims that will be placed in the Patent Application are deduced from the reduction to practice.
DRAFTING AN INDEPENDENT CLAIM
First of all we need to start with the broadest claim, the entire invention and what it is, and including all subject matter, after all, the broadest claim in essence is actually the backbone of the invention where all the rest of the claims are written upon.
We will have to now decide which elements within the present invention are essential, and they are as follows.
The Mainframe Structure, the Primary Wheel, the hydraulically operated Variable Diameter Inverted Twin Sheave Assembly, the Fluid Drive System, the Actuating Mechanisms, and the Variable Diameter Secondary Wheels. Present within the invention in it's current embodiments are also the Drive Wheel, the Load Wheel, and the Electrical Generating and Storage System.
The Independent Claim, should read like this for the present invention Manmotor.
I claim :
1. A human powered motor, comprising :
Clarification :I claim :Only appears once in the Patent Application and it is placed at the heading of "the set" of claims written upon within the application text of the invention. Next is 1. A human powered motor, This is the name of the art associated with the inventive subject matter of the present invention, and in other words the invention "what it really is". Next to it after the comma is called the transition into the the body of the claim ,comprising : and after the transition there is a colon placed.
I claim :
1. A human powered motor, comprising : (a) a mainframe structure ; (b) a primary wheel supported thereon by said mainframe structure ; (c) two subframe structures pivotally supported thereon the said mainframe; (d) two secondary wheels supported thereon the two respective subframe structures ; (e) a linear actuator pivotally connecting to and between said subframe and mainframe structures ; (f) a drive wheel connected flexibly to one said secondary wheel; (g) a load wheel connected flexibly to the other said secondary wheel; (h) a twin sheave wheel acted upon by fluid flow connected flexibly to both secondary wheels ; and (i) a hydraulic system attached thereto the primary wheel for supplying fluid flow into said twin sheave wheel.
Clarification :After the colon in the transition comprising : the body of the claim contains the subject matter in it's most broadest sense. (a) through (i) are the body of the first independent claim of the present invention and that the scope of the claim is generally determined by the elements recited in it's body. The scope of the invention is critical to mentally view and to understand clearly, and that all subject matter is viewed forward and backwards for you to clearly understand as to "what" the scope of your invention is. As an inventor I am thinking backwards now in time, like in the really old days, I believe they used animals walking around in a circle getting food in trade for walking and producing tangible work effort. So I guess the present invention is no different with the exception of time and materials. The time is now and the materials aren't wood and leather for bearings. Now in the future I see that many people will chose and operate the giant Manmotors of the future that allow a thousand people to power one Manmotor. People generating their own electrical power, reducing the usage of fossil fuel. So the scope of this invention Manmotor, includes everything made in the past pertaining to this art form of Human Powered apparatus and or projected to be made twenty years into the future, and you the inventor need to invent subject matter within those two boundries in time, and also those apparatus and machines either built in the past, or projected to be used in the future, must be designed and then refined, conceptualized and then brought to life in prototype form and further refined and reduced to practice, and hopefully after you have refined your prototype and reduced your invention to practice, the product will be profitable throughout the lifespan of any patent that may issue for your invention.
The scope of a claim should be viewed in a simular way and visa versa as the claim sets the scope of the inventive subject matter in an invention.
What I would like to express firmly is that this text is only to assist you in drafting preliminary claims, later to be handed to your patent attorney, the attorney will really respect the fact you have taken time to understand what information he or she needs to efficiently write your patent Provisional, or Patent Application.
After the inventor of a new and usefull invention gets the letter of allowance of certain claims and limitations on those claims from the USPTO after their review a year or so later of the Patent Application, it then becomes critical as to exactly how you wrote your claims. My advice is to seek out a patent attorney and review their perfomance record in the form of a search on the USPTO website. Don't be the someone that has written a claim and it was allowed, but worth nothing in return, a patent attorney is needed but charges by the hour usually. Now when your writing the provisional if you write it really good you can send it in yourself and then be able to mark patent pending on your product invention. I have never done this is thirty years of inventing, but I am sure I could have. I have written many provisional patent drafts and for many people that have eventually ended up with a U.S. patent for their invention and I have had several of my own that the attorney sent it in as is, but the point is I would never, if I had a choice send in my own paperwork. Several reasons for this, let's say your actual invention turns out to be an instant success, there will surely and inevitably be a patent attorney involved at a later time anyway and you will sleep alot better knowing it was professionally executed for your future protection in upholding the rights you will have, after your Invention is allowed a U.S. Patent.
In the past thirty years of inventing and with all the experience I have at inventing and writing Patent Application rough drafts, I find that writing the actual claims of an invention as actually the most difficult and mentally taxing part of the Patent Application Draft. This is always difficult and don't feel bad if this is hard to grasp for right now, just do the best you can. I am going to recite some elementary rules of claim drafting directly from the book byJohn R. Flanagan , HOW TO PREPARE PATENT APPLICATIONS.
Rule One :The scope of a claim is generally determined by the elements recited in its body and not by the general definition of its preamble. Note :The preamble in the present invention Claim 1. A human powered motor, and that the body of the claim 1. constitutes (a) through (i).
Rule Two :The principal elements of a claim must be set forth or introduced positively or directly. Note :The principal elements of the broadest claim (a) through (i) in the present invention are all introduced directly and in an example (a) a mainframe structure ; in the body of the claim must always end with a semi colon. and a mainframe structure directly introduces a primary element in this claim. This is important to remember because you cannot indirectly recite a principal element within the body of a claim prior to directly introducing it. Then within the body of claim 1. in subparagraph (b) you can see that we now introduce directly a primary wheel and then indirectly recite and refer back to the mainframe structure, indirectly.
Quote referring to Rule Two "This rule requires that an antecedent basis be established in the claim for each principal element later recited indirectly. Each principal element must be directly introduced or set forth in a claim before it can be referred to with respect to other elements."
Rule Three :Antecedents may be set forth in the preamble of the claim.
Claim one, the broadest claim includes every object of inventive subject matter found within the invention intended to be claimed "as the invention" in whole. The Patent claims on the invention come from the evaluation of the example 6 and what the needs are for the other people who will want addittional features in your invention to buy them easily. The entire concept around this patenting thing is to make value in your invention and to share that information with the general public. How you make value in your invention is to invent something that more people will want to purchase, simple math can add this one up. Making the feature claims of your invention sets a foundation for the elements to design and engineer to make the invention claims for the patent application.
Remember an important fact, these claims are your words from you, the inventor, they do not need to be included within the Provisional Patent Application to the USPTO. They do need to be drafted by you, in order to complete an accurate Provisional Patent Draft. A Patent Attorney will further revise the claims to read on the essential elements after he searches prior art on your subject matter disclosed to him or her. It is critically important to file for a Provisional Patent immediately after you have all the information compiled to go to the Patent Attorney for review and filing purposes. This is important in the event you may be fortunate enough to gain title to a U.S. Patent for your invention, however due to your product may be very well built, but unless you have a Patent Pending status on your product and marked very clear "Patent Pending" which the provisional specifies, you may have a manufacturer you don't want or have not signed royalty agreements to, offer for sale and market your product. If you have filed a Provisional Patent and marked your product Patent Pending and the Patent Application you filed a year later is allowed a U.S. Patent you can go back and claim the original filing date on your Provisional Patent that did not include the claims of your invention.
This is also an example of a broad claim, however it is in the form of an independent claim for one form of inventive subject matter that the present invention is comprised of. It has exactly the same format as the Claim 1 had. We have to continue on in another claim, and what this claim is from, is the information only the inventor has established is critical to what exactly makes his or her present invention new and improved over the prior art within the field of the invention. The inventor is who makes the invention better or improved, and solves or eliminates the problems previously experienced in other inventions of same, usually only the inventor can really designate the improvements, or why they were implimented or referred to as subject matter and essential elements of the invention.. Otherwise logically someone else would have already come up with it, right ?
After viewing theFig. 2the author would like to point out that prior to the drawings of this new art form of the present invention were drafted, I knew as an inventor that this primary wheel would be drafted as the second claim and therefore the numbering sequence becomes a tool for the inventor to use in writing the claims. I will explain this, referring toFig. 2and in specific13.an embodiment of a hub. As the inventor I knew that the primary element in building this wheel, was the hub13.in effect it is the lowest number found on thisFig., therefore without this hub built first, there is no need to continue on due to the parameters need to be set for the size of the hub, prior to a machinest being able to make one for you, and so on the numbering system found within theseFig.(s)1through18are the same. This is an invaluable tool to use in the writing of the claims for any invention.
With this tool we can now easily write claim 2.
2. A primary wheel supported thereon a mainframe structure having a hydraulic system actuating a twin sheave wheel flexibly attached at both sheaves to the two said secondary wheels, said primary wheel comprising :
(a) a hub ; (b) a cylinder block arrangement stationarilly attached to said hub ; (c) a hydraulic pump actuator releasably attached at each outside end of said cylinder block arrangement ; and (d) a hollow cylinder held moveably within the said cylinder block arrangement .
Using this as a tool shows clearly what one needs to evaluate quickly and consistently, what essential inventive subject matter is contained within the claimed invention and that further when the rest of the dependent or independent claims are written, a sequence of elements to write into the claims becomes very clear to the inventor as he or she is writing their initial Provisional Patent Draft that will later be handed into your Patent Attorney for filing with the USPTO.
When you have the broadest claims based from the broadest features based from the basic lack of features in a prior art of your invention you are ready for he broadest specification.
Fig. 1is an assembled side elevational view of aManmotorof the present invention without the human input or apparatus to translate human energy into rotation, and is illustrated at a starting position.
Theory Of Operation
Referring toFig. 1, the wheel of1.is rotated by input rotation from the wheel of3.and3.rotated from the input rotation from the wheel of9.. Wheel9.diameter is fixed but made variable in width through mechanical adjustment methods, that effectively allows a change in diameter of wheel9.by mechanical means. As wheel9.is rotated a belt connecting the outer circumference of 9.to the outer circumference of the wheel of4.allows4.to rotate at the ratio shown inFig. 1(static) ,9.and4.remain at a one to six ratio in speed.
The mechanical structure of4.is permanently affixed to one half of the rotating element of3.and the other half element of3.regulates the diameter of3.variably to a maximum circumference ratio of one to three, based on restriction to rotation of3.through restriction of load wheel2.while rotating at various RPM ranges. At present in it's static form the belt of3.connecting the outer circumference of3.to the outer circumference of wheel2.remains at a ratio of three to one.
The Machine Embodiment ofFig. 1stands at rest and specified (static) in this exemplary form of the drawing. This example shows the machine in it's intended "starting position", and that the interrelated components yet to be exampled within further text are also in their perspective "starting positions".
As wheel9.begins to rotate, the belt connecting it to wheel4.also rotates wheel4., wheel9.can be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise in retrospect to the embodiment drawing ofFig. 1. Wheel4.is a solid part of half embodiment3.and directly translates force and speed through rotation into the half element3.with the wheel of2.and that the wheel of2.is made up of three elements that includes the wheel of5., the wheel of2.comprises one frictional surface and is stationarily attached to the wheel of1.. As1.begins it's rotation clockwise or counterclockwise the frictional surface of embodiment2.and5.are frictionally connected together and also rotate as wheel9.is rotated.
As wheel1.rotates the third element of2.and5.a belt attaches wheel5.to the frictional surface element of wheel6.. This frictional surface half element of wheel6.is staionarily attached to the mechanical structure of wheel7.and is connected to the wheel of8.with a belt.
The embodiment of the present invention Manmotor exampled in Fig. 1 is a new and usefull invention that has purpose dedicated to fullfill the needs of a human being and is mostly concerned with the production of hydrogen for cooking and freezing foods, oxygen to breathe, and electricity to use for the common lighting in a household or office.
The current invention is a tool that accomplishes the aforementioned needs for a human being needing to cook food, store food, and have light when needed. Also the current invention will allow a human being energy freedom from the power generating companies and the gas companies, and offers a choice to individuals wanting to live in areas of the earth that may not be associated with human civilization, and to live and sustain a healthy family life from the direct translation of human force to the product fuel and electrical energy. Any fractional horsepower power source can be applied to the drive rotation of the present invention in addition to human input power.
This is in the broadest sense the specification and broadest detailed description of the present invention exhibited. Claim 2 as written in the broadest sense will also need to be described.
A primary wheel , comprising :
The scope of a primary wheel is how broad ? A wheel ? Every car has four of them touching the ground, the engine has multiple wheels and for example a flywheel. What exactly does that flywheel do for the engine anyway?
An engine flywheel, as you are looking at the flywheel surface, appears as a circle made of metal, and it is essentially three dimensional, so in description would appear to be a disk. This flywheel is bolted directly to a crankshaft which rotates as each cylinder produces power on the power stroke of each of the individual cylinders that fire fuel. Each time the individual power strokes are happening it is a result of a precisely timed explosion inside the cylinder firing. These are abrupt impulses and without a flywheel on the engine the engine would not keep running. It would immediately stop, and the reason behind that is a flywheel is designed to keep the crankshaft rotating in the correct direction as the cylinders are impulsing the crankshaft rotation. To light of a flywheel on the engine and it is very radical as most mechanics would describe, you need to keep the engine at a high engine RPM, and the slightest change in throttle pedal position would drop the engine RPM quickly and or stop the engine, on the other hand it would rocket you abruptly if you pressed on the throttle pedal. If a flywheel is to heavy for an engine, the engine becomes very inefficient if the impulses felt by fuel exploding were to small to keep the flywheel rotating at a rotational speed necessary to gain momentum of the wheel.
So in the broad claim of, A primary wheel, one could imagine the scope that encompases, almost everything that is mechanical with an engine has a primary wheel. If you go to the fair you will see many primary wheels. Now the importance of chosing your field for your invention should be carefully analyzed at this time in the invention process. What field am I searching for to find prior art that is relevant to my present invention ?
In the case of searching for prior art for the present invention we need to now concentrate on doing a quick patent search in the USPTO regarding prior art. I am now going to the USPTO site, http://patft.uspto.gov/ and then we go to the column of past issued patents and click on quick search.
After two thousand patents were reviewed and plenty of classification numbers read on, the classification glossary terms were searched. I have not found a classification number I am satisfied with. Nothing really has hit the nail on the head yet so to speak. Let's now identify what our invention in it's broadest claim actually is intended to accomplish.
The present invention translates human input energy into rotating mass, this rotating mass is acted upon by electromagnetic friction and causes a pulsed drag onto the rotating mass. This momentary drag from the force of electromagnetic induction and acting upon said rotating mass accumulates electrical energy and stores it into a dc storage unit. Hence the present invention is an electrical energy generator and storage system.
This subclass is indented underthe class definition. Motors comprising means whereby energy expended by animals, including human beings is converted into mechanical energy.
(1)Note. Where merely the dead weight of an animal or operator is used to do work, classification is in the appropriate weight motor subclass. See, for example, subclass 28 of this class.
This I found at the site http://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/classification/selectnumwithtitle.htm and after reviewing the patents in the Class 185/15 , MOTORS: Spring, weight, or animal powered. I knew this was the exact one I had been looking for. A human powered motor and in addition our product will come with an electrical system that is capable of accumulating electrical energy and then storing it in a self contained storage system. It is also relevant that this particular invention also will be searched within the Class 60/698+ .
As you are doing these general descriptions from each invention patent claim you will narrow down the claim for the inventive subject matter. These narrowed claims sill be written on and then you will develop the fragmentary views to further example the claimed inventive subject matter within the invention claimed in it's most broadest sense.
I had to get off of that last page, I looked for hours and read many patents today I am sick of looking at patents geeze, I am slightly wound up here now but at least we have a really strong foundation to write the claims on now. It seems the more stuff in the invention process that becomes, or is, pie in the sky, clouds your ability to write the claims of your invention. So the inventor needs to be crystal clear as to the base foundation of his product to follow, and this get's serious at this point in the design of your product, and you need many factual clarifications in order to progress through the claim writing phase.
We are on this wheel of Fig. 2 "a primary wheel" subparagraph (b) claim 1. and claim 2. First of all the understanding of a few factors involved need to be clarified.
FACTOR ONE :
A wheel used to rotate and continue momentum is called a flywheel for all practicle applications and purposes. This said momentum is a direct and porportional result from rotating the flywheel, and the flywheel is then said to gain a potential inertia, that requires input power from any source of input power that is able to rotate the flywheel. A flywheel that weighs 100lbs. and is starting to be rotated, has two factors at this point. One, is to start the wheel rotating from zero RPS to it's optimum RPS, and it takes more power to start rotation of a flywheel, than to continue rotating it at it's optimum RPS range. To stop the rotation of a flywheel rotating at it's optimum RPS from the ouside circumference takes (x)psi in force of some kind to stop it or restrict it's movement in rotation, and that includes electrical force, hydraulic force, or mechanical force. Now we increase the weight to 200lbs. with another flywheel, and rotate this wheel also at the same revolutions per second as the flywheel that weighed 100lbs. We now stop the 200lb. flywheel and then find our force in (x)psi that was required to stop the flywheel rotation from the outside circumference of the flywheel, is porportionally higher than the (x)psi it took to stop the 100lb. wheel. This wheel is said to have inertia due to momentum. Now as you view the flywheel face as earlier described you will view a circle, in the center of the circle is said to be the center of rotation on the rotating center axis of the flywheel. The distance from the rotating center axis of the flywheel to the outer circumference is the radius. Now lets just say that this flywheel that weighs 200lbs. is 51" in diameter which is also 4.25' . The radius would be half of that so 2.125' would be our multiple, however let's use inches in decimal equivelants which would be 25.5".
Most flywheels are made of a solid piece of metal that has been forged and then machined to size. A 200 pound wheel is very hard to handle and very expensive to have made. A solid flywheel has it's disadvantages in this application of the present invention due to the physical size and weight would limit it's ability to become a competetive design largly due to the effort in shipping and handling alone. Also the solid wheel has fixed weight ratios that become disadvantageous in two case scenarios, a solid wheel has a required power effort to begin to rotate porportional to it's displaced weight over the entire diameter of the circle, and there is no advantage of weight ratio displacement to the outer circumference at the wheels optimum rotational speed.
FACTOR TWO :
It takes less effort porportionally to rotate a wheel by exerting the force to rotate the flywheel on the outer circumference of the flywheel, than it takes to rotate the wheel at the inner most circumference possible. Time and surface speed become an element very interesting to an inventor when it comes to rotating wheels, and in effect rotating wheels are the simplest form of force multipliers when applied efficiently to a mechanical device. Wheels are necessary and can really get complex when dynamic functions are calculated into the equasion. The easier you can rotate a wheel the more efficient it will become.
The "primary wheel" in Fig. 1 as an example shows a side view of the "primary wheel" and attached to it's embodiment is the "twin sheave" read upon in claim 1. subparagraph (h) . Also within this view are two "secondary wheels" read upon in subparagraph (d) and are on each side of the "primary wheel" attached thereto by flexible means (a set of drive belts) one belt to each of the secondary wheels. The twin sheave at this point has a driven diameter of 24" and a radius of 12". So at one foot out from the centerline axis of rotation of the primary wheel the ratio in pressure is one to one when rotating the wheel. Now if the drive power was applied to the outer circumference of the primary wheel you would porportionally reduce the pressure required to rotate the primary wheel. Inversely as the drive diameter goes less it requires porportionally more pressure to rotate the primary wheel. The variable applied to this situation is the fact that the primary wheel will take less pressure to rotate after the optimum RPS is reached on the flywheel, this is called a dynamic variable that constantly changes, and that the variables effecting the power required to rotate any given flywheel are size, weight, shape and rotational speed of the flywheel.
Referring again toFig. 2the primary wheel, this wheel is not a solid wheel, it is made up of cut flat strap, very common in the industry, Stainless Steel 3/16" thick or .1875", quality 304 or better and also some solid round Aluminum Billet 6061-T6 or better. The primary wheel also has common bolts made of Stainless Steel, and a fluid flow system.
(a) a hub ; (b) a cylinder block arrangement stationarilly attached to said hub ; (c) a hydraulic pump actuator releasably attached at each outside end of said cylinder block arrangement ; and (d) a hollow cylinder held moveably within the said cylinder block arrangement .
All of the component elements exampled inFig. 13below are included to comprise one primary wheel of the present invention, and to enable it to perform as stated within the claims to be read on in further text. For now referring toFig. 13to the far left is "the cylinder block arrangement" and specifically designated121.and moving to the right129."the twin sheave", and attaching to the cylinder block arrangement. To the far right of the cylinder block arrangement is an emergency braking embodiment130.and131..
Now referring to the Fig. 12 below examples the "cylinder block arrangement" in an exploded view, including : (a)110.a primary wheel plate, two per cylinder block arrangement ; (b)111.the "outer hub" also functions as a hydraulic fluid distribution manifold, two per cylinder block arrangement ; (c)109.the "inner spool hub" also functions as a hydraulic fluid reservoir ; (d)112.and113.the "hollow cylinders" and also functions as moveable ballast ; (e)114.through117.is an "actuator" that pumps hydraulic fluid two per cylinder block arrangement ; (f)118.a "hydraulic fluid conduit", two per cylinder block arrangement .
It takes only one cylinder block arrangement to make one primary wheel of the present invention. It is designed to begin it's rotation with the hollow cylinders filled with water. As the primary wheel rotates faster and faster the water filled cylinders move outward against the biasing spring of117.. The push rod116.then moves into actuator cylinder115.and forces hydraulic fluid to flow through conduit118.and into the hub/hydraulic fluid distribution maniforld111.. Now referring toFig. 15below .
Fig. 14is an assembled side elevational view of aManmotorof the present invention after the human input energy has rotated the present invention to it's optimum revolutions per second and is illustrated at it's optimum operating position.
What is actually shown here is simply the wheel circumference ratios and their ability to regulate themselves to optimum perfomance for each human individual powering theManmotor. The object is to generate sufficient electrical current flowing capabilities with acceptable human exertion. The wheel of1. in Fig. 1is not shown in it's dynamic form in this embodiment ofFig. 14and applies in specific the force to regulate and vary the wheel circumference changes.
Referring toFig. 14and in specific139.which has become the second most substantial form of subject matter in this form of the present inventionManmotorwhich is a hydraulically activated clutch, friction surface, and pressure plate twin sheave. This twin sheave139.inFig. 14and it's twin2.inFig. 1examples a variable twin sheave clutch and hydraulic pressure plate used to regulate and or change rotational ratios of the wheels involved in the optimum operation of the present invention. As hydraulic pressure is reacted upon, a center element of this sheave assembly is allowed to travel along the longitudinal surface of a guide rod, this center element is free to rotate along the longitudinal axis of the guide rod and as it slides along the guide rod, the distance between all three elements are changing. In effect the two outer elements are frictional surfaces and the center sliding element, the pressure plate. The frictionally connecting element in the present invention is a common item referred to as an industrial belt, there are two belts used in this application and two seperate groves these belts interfit with and in specific the twin sheaves. These two belts used in this application that interfit between the rotating elements, wedge their frictional contact surfaces into these twin sheaves. In this application, the novelty and unobvious features of this trio of combined singular elements along with the hydraulically moveable pressure plate, allow the change in rotating ratios that effect theRPSof the hydro balanced wheel1.inFig. 1of the present inventionManmotor.
The comparison ofFig. 1hydrobalanced wheel1.andFig. 14are substantially identical in the embodiments elevational side view. The wheel2.inFig.1the twin sheave, hydraulically translates diameter variably and as a by product to dynamic operation of the present invention, and largly due to centrifugal forces, to a point further exampled inFig. 14diameter at138.and is essentially the inner sheave driving the rotation of hydrobalanced wheel. If you look at the belt position carefully you will see inFig. 1at3.is essentially the same component viewed and compared to the same inFig.14at137.and that within this application becomes the fifth most substantial article of subject matter within the inventionManmotoras disclosed and is the variable diameter sheave. Referring toFig. 1at point6.and compared to the belt location at point140.inFig. 14this also is an identical twin to the friction plate, pressure plate variable diameter sheave. The example position inFig. 1compared to the position inFig. 14of the drive belts examples only two situations,Fig. 1examples the Manmotor in it's start up position, and or static position, andFig.14examples only the positions of the drive belts relevant to the diameter changes allowed when theManmotor's Hydrobalanced Wheel is at it's optimally maximum rated RPS .
We essentially have two variable diameter sheaves that can be viewed below as an example only inFig. 16and will be detailed within further text. The point is that one is called the drive sheaveFig. 1at3.and the other the driven sheave6..
Fig. 16and it's sheave or grove that the belt fits in is maximum circumference position,Fig. 3below shows the same variable diameter sheave that the belt fits into it's minimum circumference position.
Most all of this text was pulled from the inventors project notebook that had been written on several months ago, the drawings were created to show the subject matter and to further fragment inventive subject matter so the specification along with the drawings will example and explain to one skilled in the art that the invention is classified into as to how the claims in specific are accomplished.
The claims of the present inventon that were exampled in FIG(s) are not the complete set of drawings for this invention of Manmotor. These are to example a format to use, like an outline to write the provisional patent with the most broadest claims not narrowed down to the specifics of inventive subject matter. You are writing the provisional patent and need to get the paperwork invention patent pending prior to you beginning to make parts and assemble the invention prototype.
You are now at the point to write the Abstract Of The Invention, only after all drawings are made that exhibit the sought after claims in the invention and the descriptive text written as found in the Specification Of The Invention can the Abstract Of The Invention be written. Following text will reflect the importance of following guidlines when writing the provisional draft 1. It took me three times to get within the 250 word limit for the abstract.

LIMITATIONS AND CONTENT OF THE PROVISIONAL PATENT ABSTRACT :
What the inventor needs to concentrate on is making an accurate and exact statement of a technical description for the invention and the inventive subject matter comprising it.
Quoted from : John R. Flanagan : HOW TO PREPARE PATENT APPLICATIONS.
" Since the abstract is intended to provide a concise synopsis of the technical disclosure of the patent application, it should employ technical terminology, such as used in the detailed description, as opposed to claim terminology. However, it's basic content may be designed after that contained in the claims. "
"A specific limitation is placed on the length of the abstract : it should not exceed 250 words ."
"The abstract should be written in a single paragraph with several sentences, instead of one continous sentence form of a claim."
We have 372 words in our first draft of the abstract of the present invention and it is necessary now to clean it up and limit the paragraph to 250 words.

Note :It appears now we have 300 words, we need to drop another 50 of them. We now re-write the abstract again as I am attempting to exhibit the most effective way to make your invention a success. It seems that we need to take a real hard look at exactly what is needed to write a really good abstract, and what we actually need within this text to complete this 250 word summary is to write brief statements giving the main points of our invention, and using few words but full of meaning, giving a general view of the invention in text that has been though about or discussed relating to what things the invention is made up of and the materials it comprises that occupy 3 dimensional space.

END NOTE :We now have the abstract cleaned up enough that we are really close to the 250 mark, this text is 252 words long and I think for now that is as good as we need it to be. It may fly but a patent attorney can always find a couple words to remove later. Be prepared to re write over and over text that needs revisions and keep all the originals and write on them void and the reason why. Do not throw any paperwork away, "ANY" paperwork, and save them all in a binder notebook seperate from the final drafts of any of articles addressed within the provisional patent draft file.
It is time for the inventor to write the Summary Of The Invention for the provisional patent draft 1 and I am again going to recite the importance of writing notes each day the idea advances or work is performed on the part of the project we are at. The writing of the Provisional draft 1 to later go to your patent attorney for sumbission to the USPTO.
This is going to sound a little long winded and possibly a bit repetative however you need to understand exactly how important going over and over the written text of the invention is for the final writing of the provisional patent draft. Again I want to also say this is your masterpiece and treat it like it's an article that can pay your bills and alot more, along with allowing you to relax a little and create your nest egg for your own good. This work we are doing could save you up to twelve thousand dollars in patent application preperation.
Gather terminology and establish the origin of the invention. Some of the descriptive words that were searched and found within the classifications of the invention now need to be compiled and organized as to how and where they apply in the subject matter. We need to highlight and roundly explain what we have and use some patent classification terminology for where it fits in the present invention, and get a somewhat round terminology base that needs to be used in the summarization of the present invention.
Here is really a point I have been trying to make and again what I am trying to point out is that your invention has to be created in your mind in a step by step process and not overthought by you. Your invention had to start from a seed, and without that seed which was the intent you had which seeded the rest of the product to come had an intent by you upon the conception of the idea or "intellectual property" that is yours and from your mind. So in defining this seed starts the first paragraph of theSummary of the Invention.
Seed for the present invention ManMotor :
I lived without electricity for several years in the jungle rainforest of the Hana area in the State of Hawaii. Many people do not have the choice, they need storage units for dc electricity , solar panels, and wind generators. There are areas that do not have electical wiring due to the geographical limitations of the area. I realized a fact, that even if there are plenty of fruits and vegetables in an area they don't bear fruit all the time and also not at the same time so many night I ate the same of one thing to get a meal. Also if it rains or you don't just catch the sun right you don't eat that day, there are many other creatures that live off the same fruits and vegies. Fish are easy to catch but you need to be able to scale rocks and jungle to get to the areas and also then to get the fish back home when walking is the only alternative. People need to be able to store and preserve food, a freind was in need of an electrical system several years ago for her small 200 square foot living structure. I was determined to set her up with mostly junkyard scraps. It worked but then learned it took more effort than I was even willing to exert just to make "enough electricity to light a fart", muchless operate a computer or fan system. We had a fan system that would run off the electricity we made by peddling, a 12 volt dual radiator fan set, and it wirred like heck, great cooling properties as long as it ran and you had to peddle the unit just to generate electricity to make it run. The truth of the matter was that in a few minutes the fans didn't cool the operator down, human heat was generated in the person peddling faster than the fans would cool the human being down. We learned some important points that brought us to the current invention and it's subject matter.
So the need the inventor had was to help someone out that needed electricity but couldn't get it any other way except from the sun , the rain, or the wind, there was no other option for the person in need. The interesting part was the need was to read at night and see by led light and listen to some music on the computer. In todays canned goods and dry meals that you can purchase at present time, there are very fiew products that we need to survive on that require preserving. So by this need of another individual and my need to assist and be the man so to speak by providing electricity for her to use and store dc electrical energy, I also had the desire to play around in the shop and had the capabilities of welding and patching spare parts together so a friend and I made a little peddle generator so she could peddle a bicycle type exerciser and charge a large CAT Battery. That is a battery that fits into a D6 Caterpillar Dozer, and then an old flywheel type exercize bike with the dodge alternator hooked up to self energize. The bicycle method put out more electrical energy than any other of the choices but with one large difference. The wind and the sun can go on for hours and it was difficult to maintain peddleing the bicycle that will grow into the invention, that has grown from the seed that we are trying to define precisely from where the invention came.
The fact I am noting here is that the other forms of collecting electrical energy all fall short of providing sufficient electrical energy to power a common household for 24hours. How they work is providing the charge and storing it for more time than the electrical energy quantity that is to be consumed in a lesser period of time, and that's the difference between something that is workable and something no one want's to do or physically can do.
So the invention process is a sequence that develops like something that grows like a plant. The clarification is needed for the inventor to flush out the pipes and re organize the subject matter as so he can successfully assemble the invention in small steps directly related to each form of subject matter that came from the awarenesses of the need.
After I had written the above text I also remember now the project I had been involved in with a company CEO that was interested in finding a method that he could operate a large facility with the electrical energy collected by some type of machine. The project began in early 2003 and commenced into a project called "Gemini" in mid 2005.
It first started with a proof of concept for a radiant energy collector that was being worked on by a man Bedini . This was simply a small light vertically positioned free wheeling wheel and stand. It's actually modeled after Teslas monopole motor he engineered for Westinghouse to generate electricity at the turn of the century. It was a permanent magnet device and it was neat to see turn and there is alot of info about it on the web. I learned a great deal from that project and the most important facts I realized at the time is that in fact people try to always get something to run for free, the radiant energy is advertized as free energy and it's not free. Wheels cost money to build, they are hard to keep in balance at any given rpm, permanent magnets can go haywire and cause problems, vertical wheels are dangerous when you try to stop them especially if you actually stop one to fast, and all this stuff was done over a hundred years ago. Radiant energy is like combing your hair, that's around 2thousand volts static electricity, now save it or use it and you will find out it is nothing more than static, that's it simply static electricity accumulated. Transistors are highly costly when working with electrostatic discharge, they get damaged internally and then go haywire and your wheel stops charging. If there were a cheaper way to produce electricity it would have been done already, and yes I believe in the near future there will be a breakthrough in the ability to work with static charges and or methods to utilyze the electrostatic energy to drive large flywheels.
Next of all was the vertical and horizontal wheel configurations, make a wheel that spins freely that has sufficient weight to gain large amounts of kinetic energy, the design of that wheel that came from that project was substantial in the fact that it was sectionally assembled into a large wheel structure that has become the skeleton of the wheel of the present invention. So now the reason I have recited this is because this CEO, at the time we started this project in early 2003 had given me this remote viewing data he had remote viewed for the project we initially started. The really wierd thing is that the data that the CEO had given me early on that included as I remember, "wafers", "fluid", "wheel", and now today I find the design of the composite wheel of the present invention to be very simular to what the data this man gave me from remote viewing, and he could not have been classified as a mechanic or mechanical art designer. Back then it made no sense and seemed a little far out for me to really accept, now I am really taking another look at this remote viewing since today the actual composite wheel design has come from extensive engineering and not the data that was provided to me early 2003, however, it makes me really stop and review the data and wonder how that happened.
That means we have one commonality in all this experimentation and project research, build a better wheel and you have the energy market. So now through this reflection and writing it down I thouroughly understand completely and in detail what actually this invention starts with, and it is theprimary wheel.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The present invention provides a generator of electricity, hydrogen, and oxygen powered by a human being designed and constructed to satisfy the aforementioned needs. The present invention provides an electrical, hydrogen, and oxygen generating system and method to convert human input energy into mechanical,140electrical, and gaseous energy potential and provides a power generating apparatus, a Manmotor , and the Manmotor of the present invention has a mainframe with foreword and rearward triangle frame structures being constructed as twin mirror images of one another and releasably attachedend-to-end and side-by-side, allowing ease of assembly and disassembly thereof145and to lower the cost to manufacture, and also includes a composite wheel assembly containing moveable fluid filled cylinders mounted on the respective foreword, rearward and side frame structures of the mainframe. The Manmotor also has a variable ratio hydraulic activated and controlled transmission that operates from a byproduct of wheel rotation, imbalance, and that this transmission150is constructed of eight formed circles assembled comprising three sheave assemblies further comprising four variable circumference sheaves and two conventional industrial belts. AC electricity is generated and accumulated in a conventional way by the rotation of a stator armature within a polar field array of electromagnetic coils and commonly referred to as an alternator.
155 The alternating electricity begins as static and accumulates until sufficient voltage builds up and jumps to an electromagnetic coil which effects it’s magnetic flux onto and between the rotating stator, and inner and outer field windings producing non regulated AC voltage within variable pulse intervals which can be rectified and stored or used to power a water decomposition cell producing hydrogen and160oxygen gas, and in addition provides a method intended to convert human input energy into mechanical force potential that can be used to power many other power driven devices that are currently using fossil fuels to burn for the heat exchange of work energy produced.
These devices of the past utilizing fossil fuels to convert explosive effects into165useable horsepower worked very well for a growing civilization in creating many kinds of new products and an infrastructure to a country. Today however a shift in focus is evident and a viewpoint of survival with the least amount of capital outlay for an individual is necessary to maintain a lifestyle or to survive life itself and the elements confronting us each day. This shift in focus has created the need for170human beings individually to produce fuel and electrical energy to survive. Usually these devices are novel however fall short of practicality and inasmuch produce little for the effort involved. The present invention uses amplified human weight and gravity to produce rotating force and inertia as a result of rotation of a weighted wheel. The inertia available in the rotating wheel is said kinetic and 175proportionally increases as the wheel speed increases. Accordingly, the present invention relates to an apparatus and method to produce electricity, hydrogen, and oxygen from human input energy and resulting into an improved state of physical health and endurance for the human being powering the device from his or her own available energy, which includes the operative180steps of :( a ) amplifying the physical weight of the human being powering the device ; ( b ) translating human motion into rotation ; ( c ) translating amplified physical weight of the human powering the device into a torque factor utilized to increase rotational speed of the wheels of the present invention, and that the185amplified torque developed is further translated into increasing the speed of rotation of the hydro balanced wheel for the present invention ; ( d ) speed of rotation of the present invention determines kinetic energy gained within the hydro balanced wheel of the present invention, and that kinetic energy gained is intermittently loaded onto and or depleted sporadically by electromagnetic190induction, and further collects defined columns of electrical energy either as a result from the amplified human input energy ; ( e ) the columns of electrical energy produced are aligned or rectified and directed further into storage cells ; ( f ) stored electrical energy that has been accumulated is used by a conventional DC water decomposition cell ; ( g ) at a specific optimum rotational speed of the195present invention, kinetic energy is sufficient to produce specifically timed electrical impulses into a polar array of electromagnetic coils ; ( h ) magnetic flux density affects that are timed mechanically in relation to physical structure elements of the present invention produce a higher voltage AC used further to decompose water by AC electrolysis ; ( i ) the decomposed water in the form of a200mixed gas is directed within a conduit into a hydrogen/oxygen concentrator/filter apparatus separating the two mixed gases and operating directly from the production of electrical voltage and current as a result of the rotating hydro balanced wheel .

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION :
The present invention provides a mechanical means for a human to produce electricity, being designed and constructed to satisfy the aforementioned needs. Electricity is generated and then accumulated as a result from a human being in motion as the prime mover. Since the electricity generated is not "on demand" and is a stored function of the present invention, the motion of the human prime mover is coupled with the weight of that prime mover instead of a force in resistance to rotation being applied as load to the prime mover, within in a block of time exerting the energy that the prime mover can sustain and the human will lose all energy, and have to physically stop exerting energy and could not power a conventional washing machine for a twenty minute block of time at best. Furthermore a standing positioning of the human prime mover allows their weight to be amplified through leveraging, thusly gaining a torque advantage over the prior art that requires a continous loading of the leg muscles and does not utilyze the apparatus found in the present invention for gaining the advantages of amplifying human weight to gain the torque advantages that allow an individual prime mover to exert less energy and provide the power to continue the generation of electricity for longer periods of time. The human powered mechanical energy in motion electrical generation system of the present invention is substantially more efficient due to the weight amplifycation apparatus of the human prime mover and the energy in motion developed kineticlly by a liquid balasted rotating member.
