    1st INVENTOR: "This is a pivetable joint which can be placed in all directions, you just have to losen it, it has no friction in it and otherwise you can hold things with the lens."



    2nd INVENTOR: "It has an application for motor cars, for boats or (indistinct) generators. But the main advantage is that it is pollution free - and it doesn't require high-octane fuel. In fact we can use any fuel, that is hydrogen, butane gas, North Sea gas, low-octane gasoline, any fuel you like."



    3rd INVENTOR: "It is a new system with metal paper and magnetic letters."
