Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

As the years have passed, there hasn’t been much that has changed about the transmission that is used in vehicles today. One inventor aims to change it completely reports The Calgary Herald.

Gary Lee, a Utah inventor and his company VMT Technologies, has recently developed a transmission concept that if successful might just forever change the world of driving.

He has designed a prototype Universal Transmission that does away with “changing gears” — one that doesn’t need to have a clutch or torque converter.

Instead of wasting an engine’s forward momentum when it comes time to shift, Lee’s transmission is positively engaged, with no neutral gear.

So, in an everyday automobile, the Universal Transmission would provide a seamless transfer of power, and the company claims it could increase fuel economy by as much as 30 per cent.
