Default Opposed Piston Opposed Cylinder Engine

For you mechanical engineering types and others interested is such things, a little brain candy.

Watch the two-part video for some explanation of the design.

Thats a pretty cool design. Great to see that the next 10 years in engine design could be going completely off the beaten trail. You have that new Duramax coming in 2010 flipping engine design on its head, then this cool new OPOC thing. Amazing it took this long for people to try something outside of the standard of today. Only exception being Wankel.
