Did OTC Enterprises of Apple Valley California succeed in developing a mind-operated "Circular Foil Craft" that transported Ralph Ring and two other men ten-miles away and back at the speed of thought?
"Pods" is the name that Ralph has given those groups of hobbyists who are researching the viability of Carr's design, hoping to ultimately construct an operational craft. Many have requested to join a pod in their city; but, there are very few people in the world who are actually researching, testing, and building. Ralph Ring calls these groups "Pods". They have offered to councel new Pods, individuals or groups to help them get started, provided they've already taken action: built a component, tested a concept or theory related to the OTC-X1, etc. Do you think you can figure how and whether it can levitate? Do you want to start your own Pod and build your own first real spacecraft? Then you're in the right place. This website contains most, if not all, of the information related to Otis T. Carr and his design. Good luck.
Carr's US PATENT for his AMUSEMENT DEVICE. This is an amusement park ride that is anchored to the ground and not capable of flight. Those wishing to construct an operational craft should note that all bearings and wheels used in this device to facilitate rotation would not be part of an operational craft.
This is piece of marketing collateral is indicative of the atomic age mind-set. Carr designed, printed, and used this 4-color pamphlet during his promotional creative fund-raising efforts for OTC, Enterprises. His vision and hope for the future included a large manufacturing facility for free energy or zero-point systems and electro-magnetic gravity-defying flying saucers.
