SunBall/ SunCube is identical to Ecat/Hyperion.
It claims to produce power very cheaply and cleanly.
The performance figures are, well, unbelievable!
No independent testing has been performed, the technology is secret.
Neither device is actually on the market but distributorships are for sale.
(Distributors are required to sign an NDA)
It will be available real soon (promise) http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/stori ... l?page=all
Denver’s Vibrant Solar glows with SunCube plan

Scott VanKirk, CEO of Vibrant Solar Inc., needs to raise $2 million for a manufacturing plant to produce SunCubes like the one he’s standing beneath.
Vibrant Solar Inc. has installed the standard, photovoltaic solar-power flat panels since 2006.
Now, the Denver-based company is ready to offer a new kind of solar panel: a boxy, silvery one called the “SunCube” that produces twice as much power as a flat panel.
It’s part of the fledgling concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) solar-power industry. And if all goes as Vibrant CEO Scott VanKirk hopes, the company will have a Colorado manufacturing plant in a few years to churn out SunCube solar power panels for clients throughout the United States.
Vibrant has made presentations to economic development groups in Jefferson County, Aurora, Colorado Springs and Pueblo, where it also is seeking to learn about possible incentives, said Mark Simmons, vice president of Vibrant’s marketing and sales.
VanKirk also hopes to raise about $2 million for the manufacturing plant, which is expected to employ about 70 people on a single shift at the beginning.
“Our hope is that we can get this completely Colorado-made,” VanKirk said.
The SunCube is twice as efficient at converting sunlight into power as are flat-panel PV systems, offering twice as much power output, and costs 30 percent more than a typical, flat-panel PV system, said Mark Simmons, vice president of marketing and sales for Vibrant.
Oh dear, did you find a new job yet Mark?
I did try to warn you. http://connect.sierraclub.org/forums/To ... 651-1.aspx
