Rotoblock - Has Anyone Else Seen This Engine?

I was looking on www.crownvic.net, since I onw one too, and someone posted this link.

http://www.rotoblock.com/howitworks.shtml

Looks fairly simple, sort of Wankle like.

Design looks fairly intuitive, would be interesting to see how well the seals hold during prolonged operation.

That seems to the prevalent issue with radical engine designs that stray from the typical piston pump design.

This thing is a sealing nightmare. It has to be air-cooled since you can't put a water jacket around it. Just like a rotary, any little foreign matter that scars the inside of the donut will instantly trash the whole engine. Its a nice website and intrigueing design, but they don't show the bigger outer structure thats needed to hold those moving cams and levers in place. I don't think it will see the light of day.

Maybe I missed it but did anyone see any information on the website showing that the engine actually works? There wasn't any posted data about it...hmm
