Impossible Machines™: Self-Powered Zero-Energy Devices
Star Sailor's "impossible machines" are the future of a decarbonized world.
New ways of powering vehicles, robots and medical devices.
And 24/7-renewable energy. Eliminating intermittency and building reliability.
Star Sailor has revolutionized the idea of transformable structures based on the science of mechatronics, advanced materials and shape memory alloys integrated with advanced AI.
Star Sailor patented technologies offer a future without chemical batteries, and 24/7 renewables eliminating intermittency in wind and solar.
