OpenCola is a brand of cola unique in that the instructions for making it are freely available and modifiable. Anybody can make the drink, and anyone can modify and improve the recipe as long as they, too, license their recipe under the GNU General Public License.
Although originally intended as a promotional tool to explain open source software, the drink took on a life of its own and 150,000 cans were sold. The Toronto-based company Opencola became better known for the drink than the software it was supposed to promote. Laird Brown, the company's senior strategist, attributes its success to a widespread mistrust of big corporations and the "proprietary nature of almost everything". The company's marketing strategy has since taken a different turn and they no longer promote the soft drink on their web page.

Bruce Crower of Crower Cams, a performance engine parts business, has developed a prototype of a six-stroke engine. The additional strokes are introduced by harnessing otherwise-wasted heat energy, and injecting water into the combusion chamber creates additional power through a "steam stroke." In addition to creating more power, the water also cools the engine, so no extra cooling system is required.
Crower believes his new design could revolutionize engines and provide much more efficient systems -- especially in the area of commercial trucking where vehicles use huge radiators for cooling the engine. He claims that his model increases fuel efficiency by 40%, and that emmissions are lower than conventional engines.
