  Recently we reported on "The Bias Field" a new discovery in the physics of crystallization. It seems that already new understandings of the process of crystallization are yielding progress towards derivative new technologies. One of the most promising developments seems poised to emerge from the lab and onto the market fairly soon. "NanoCrystal" electrical generation and transmission seems just around the corner if only technological considerations vice economic and marketing considerations were controlling. 

   NanoCrystal technology refers to new power crystals that generate electricity. The emerging technologies evolving around these crystals have been lauded by some technology analysts as leading eventually to the unplugging of the globe from the electrical grid. Everything from your I phone to your toaster could go wireless if they are correct. The technology is real at the lab level. Market research clearly indicates that the public is ready to go wireless on any and everything that we either now have to plug in, or plug into a charger. This Nano Crystal technology isn't about a better battery  it's more about a wireless plug in, continuous feeding of useful electricity via portions of the radio spectrum to devices which then convert the energy into useful electricity, vice consuming energy from a battery. In fact this technology is already starting to advance a bit beyond the lab table.

  Energous Corporation (NASDAQ: WATT) has developed a wire free, distance electrical charger they call WattUp (R) and has already received Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification for a field transmitter designed to send radio frequency based power to devices at a distance. FCC certification for distance charging under part 18 of the FCC regulations (Title 47 Code of Federal Regulations Part 18), This would appear to open up great new opportunities for the electronics industry. Indeed it eventually will. But our analyst think the stock of Energous Corporation is over hyped.  NanoCrystal technologies including "distance charging" is not going to make billionaires over night. The real developmental time lines are complex. This development hits as many manufacturers have spent a great deal of research and development money on new battery and programming formats for their long planned upgrades of successful electronic devices. They will probably not trash those developments to suddenly turn to developing products that can take advantage of NanoCrystal generated and transmitted electricity. Additionally this new technology while unplugging consumers, none the less requires some as yet undeveloped infrastructure to work. As presently approved by the FCC the  Energous Corporation distance charger only works at a distance of three feet. While the technology is scalable up so that at some point all an electronic device user has to do is enter a room or even a mall equipped with the chargers and it is charging or simply running off the supplied current as the user moves about the area at will. We can see this is going to sell one day and gain a major market share of the personal electronic device market and maybe one day even household appliances. But it won't be over night.

   Energous Corporation (NASDAQ: WATT) common stock was selling at about $20.16 a share today (February 14, 2018) that's up almost 57 cents since yesterday. But its down about 99 cents from about 5 days ago. (please note these figures reflect a cursory check once today with a single source and not a market study). If you are trying to decide whether or not to buy into this company be sure to research their fundamentals. Having some early intellectual property in the field and an apparent leading position and strong visibility doesn't translate to staying power to take advantage of their current position if the technology takes longer than expected to emerge as a grouping of marketable products. The Energous WattUp system is reminiscent of WIFI featuring interoperability between receivers and transmitters, regardless of manufacturers. Energous predicts the first WattUp transceivers will be marketed late this year or early in 2019. But who will develop and market the WattUp enabled electronic devices? This technology faces a complex roll out. Financial analysts are all over the map with the company's income projections for 2021 every where from $400 million to $25 billion and several points in between. This is why we suggest a strong investigation into the company's fundamentals. We think the projections of wide adaptation by 2021 are wildly optimistic given the complications related to the adaptation of the technology. We do think that the technology is inevitable.

 At Helios Ruels, Inc. our endowment fund investments  are based on a basic buy and hold philosophy. We are constantly doing technical investigations into various technologies, and theoretical  mathematical and physics concepts. One of the first things we examine when looking at such developments is the "state of the art". That information is vital to us as potential researchers should an "investigation" become an approved project. But we have learned that "state of the art research often leads to knowledge of the "state of the industry" and with it some often useful and reliable information on who the old reliable, and up and coming,developers are in any field of technology "investigated". As a skunk works reliant on the ups and downs of grants and research contract sales we decided to utilize this by product of our investigations to help us establish an "endowment fund" meant to help stabilize our fixed overhead through dividend income. We are not investment experts, we are not stock analysts, and our investments are not intensely managed. We operate on the concept of extensive research that helps us pick our stock purchases with only one rule controlling. Since we have neither time nor expertise to time the market; we won't hold a stock ten minutes that we would be afraid to hold ten years. Keep that in mind if you ever make any stock purchases based on our analysis. We are not stock market experts. We don't market securities. We don't charge for our information. We share our insights for free. Be advised such insights may only be worth what you paid for them.

 Another company that we came across during this line of inquiry included one working on battery improvements involving graphene super capacitors.  Fisker Nanotech / Battery is developing a graphene super capacitor based battery apparently designed for electric automobiles that will fully charge within one minute for 4 to 5,000 miles of usage). Fast charging may precede wireless charging / running technologies  into the market place. Most people want to get about 5 years out of their electronics so if fast and powerful charging and charge holding precede wireless charging into the market anticipate the real adaptation of the wireless technology could be delayed by about five years over the more optimistic present day projections.

 Electrical generation/transmission/charging/ running are not the only emerging technologies coming out of the new discoveries in crystal formation that we first described in our report on THE BIAS FIELD . Emerging technologies based on our newer understanding of the formation of solids especially crystals include the bio medical field. Natural Nano (NAND) is a New York State company developing nanocites from earthen materials with unique adhesion characteristics which can be programmed chemically to adhere to cancer cells and release cancer killing chemo directly to the cancerous cells. The potential applications in paints and coatings should be obvious as well .

  We hope you find this information on developments on these particular technologies on the  cutting edge of physics helpful for whatever purpose , but if you are inclined to use it as investment information don't forget to do your home work. Nothing in this report should be viewed as investment advice .
