Daniel Dingel – The genius Pinoy inventor who invented a device that uses water to powered motor vehicles. He and his was sensational back then. It could even landed on an episode of TV’s Ripley’s Believe It or Not, but his name doesn’t ring a bell anymore (not even for wiki) to most people particularly the new gen Xer’s because it was almost 4 decades when he invented it. Proven and tested to run the engine with a device that splits oxygen and hydrogen from the water, and with the hydrogen then used to power the car engine.
“The electricity from the battery splits the water into its hydrogen and oxygen components, and this hydrogen can then be used to power the car engine. Normally it takes temperatures of about 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit to generate hydrogen from water, but here I am just using an ordinary 12-volt battery,” he claimed.”
And with high hopes to boost economy in the Philippines with his invention, he proudly presents it to the media many years ago on Philippine television. He was asking former President Marcos to support his invention. They (Marcos, Aquino, etc..) welcome his invention, but unfortunately there was this story about our government having an “agreement with the IMF and World Bank not to produce anything that would compete with their product” and so Daniel Dingel story slowly vanished during the years.
Daniel Dingel vision:
“Put up a foundation for the Filipino people, That is my dream. Not directly to the government but directly to the people. Hoping that maybe with the blessings of the good Lord, I can accomplish it. If I still live.”
With the price of oil skyrocketing in the world market. I think this is the right time to pay attention to Mr. Dingle’s invention. Who knows, it may also solve the problem of global warming.
