Neah Power Systems, Inc. (NPWZ)
Agoracom and MoneyTV reported earlier on Neah Power Systems, Inc. (NPWZ), and we are highlighting the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 1999, Neah Power Systems, Inc. is a developer of long-lasting, efficient and safe power solutions. These solutions are for the military, transportation, and portable electronics applications. The Company utilizes a unique, patented and award winning, silicon-based design for their Powerchip™ and PowerPlay™ micro fuel cells that enable higher power densities, lower cost and compact form-factors.
Neah Power Systems has their headquarters in Bothell, Washington.
The Company's previous awards include the 2012 ZINO Green finalist, the 2010 WTIA finalist, and 2010 Best of What's New™ Popular Science and other awards. Neah Power Systems' micro fuel cell system can run in aerobic and anaerobic modes.
The design of the Company's fuel cells is to replace existing rechargeable battery technology in different applications. Their power solutions include devices, such as notebook PCs; military radios; and other computer, entertainment, and communications products. Additionally, Neah Power Systems focuses on designing and distributing fuel cartridges.
The Company's business model includes the potential to license the manufacturing of their fuel cells or to purchase product directly from Neah. Previously, their business plan had an outsourced manufacturing business model. The intention of the shift to emphasize a licensing strategy, while continuing an outsourced manufacturing model, is to take further advantage of existing third-party manufacturing capacity in the semiconductor industry.
Moreover, Neah also intends to design and distribute the fuel cartridges that these fuel cells require for refueling. The Company's anticipation is that they will garner future revenues from the sale and licensing of fuel cartridges and the completed fuel cells. Their business plan considers that the Company will subcontract to third parties largely all of the production and assembly of the fuel cells and fuel cartridges.
In October 2012, Neah Power Systems announced that they developed the aforementioned PowerPlay™. This is a consumer-oriented fuel cell recharging solution. Using their larger PowerChip™ silicon based fuel cell processing expertise they developed PowerPlay™. This is a lightweight, portable fuel cell recharger designed for cell phones, smart phones, tablets or almost any portable consumer device.
The PowerPlay™ features a small fuel cell without any of the pumps or moving parts found in the Company's larger PowerChip™ products. These passive fuel cells use small interchangeable, refillable cartridges to provide the fuel. The expectation is that each cartridge will supply enough power to charge a typical smart phone up to four times.
Neah Power Systems has an Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio consisting of 12 issued patents, 2 patents pending and 1 pending application, which are undergoing development. The Company also has a variety of trade secrets for their proprietary technology.
Neah Power Systems, Inc. (NPWZ), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0056, down 6.67, on 703,950 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 659,133 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.004/$0.026.

(SWVI), and we are reporting on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Swingplane Ventures, Inc. engages in the exploration and production of mineral properties in Chile. The Company's commitment is to increasing current production on the Algarrobo Property, Chile, to a higher level, resulting in a more significant operation. The Algarrobo Property consists of 21 "Angela" and 11 "Roble" tenures, consisting of 6,161 ha located approximately 35 km east of the port city of Caldera. The Property is within a regionally extensive, iron-enriched metallogenic belt, part of a Mesozoic volcanic arc extending from southern Peru through northern Chile.
Swingplane Ventures principally explores for copper. The Company's shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. Swingplane has their corporate headquarters in Santiago, Chile. The Company's focus is the expansion of the production capability of the Algarrobo Property, as well as the acquisition of companies and/or properties with immediate or short-term production capability having potential for further expansion.
For the Algarrobo Property, the Company indicates that a due diligence property evaluation suggests there is a major opportunity to further develop the mineral potential of the property and substantially increase the current level of production. Moreover, current, limited production emphasizes recovery and sale of high-grade copper ore at an average grade of 9 percent Cu. Swingplane Ventures believes there is great opportunity to develop a state of the art processing facility. This facility would process and recover copper concentrate from ore having a grade as low as 1 percent - or less - further increasing the economic potential of the Algarrobo Property.

Today it was reported that VIASPACE and Renew Energy of Svendborg, Denmark, presented a paper entitled “Giant King Grass to Biogas” at the International Biomass Conference held in Minneapolis Minnesota in April. The conference is the largest biomass event in North America.
Mr. Morten Jacobsen of Renew Energy made the presentation which is available on the VIASPACE website at www.VIASPACE.com, and a narrated version is available at https://vimeo.com/63390267. Renew Energy is a Danish engineering services company specializing in biogas plants and bio refineries integrated with ethanol plants, distilleries and other industrial plants. According to Mr. Jacobsen, the presentation went very well and there was a good response from the audience.
Renew Energy is providing engineering support for the Tibbar Energy 7 MW anaerobic digestion power plant project on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, which will be fueled by Giant King Grass. The presentation describes the overall biogas system and uses the St. Croix, Tibbar Energy/VIASPACE project as an example. Renew Energy and VIASPACE are now working together to develop and support biogas projects fueled by Giant King Grass.
VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, commented, “Our relationship with Renew Energy and the Tibbar Energy 7MW anaerobic digestion power plant fueled by our proprietary Giant King Grass on St. Croix are gaining global attention and we are grateful to Mr. Jacobsen for the excellent presentation that he recently made at the International Biomass Conference and Expo in Minneapolis. The Giant King Grass fueled power plant on St. Croix will be a superb, renewable, green energy model that can be replicated on any tropical island to provide electricity 24 hours per day. We are excited to be leading the way in that significant and important market segment.”
“Over the next several weeks, we will be announcing our progress in Nicaragua with Grain Hill/Agricorp, a project in Southeast Asia, and updates regarding our ongoing project in South Africa and our status with Giant King Grass in Hawaii,” Dr. Schewe continued. “I have recently spoken to our Director of Communications, Dr. Jan Vandersande, and to several VIASPACE shareholders regarding questions about the Company’s status of current and future revenues. My answers are consistent. We became a stand-alone Company effective October 1, 2012, and our current revenues come from initial project development of Giant King Grass test plots in the various countries of our customers. Our future revenues will come from our recurring licensing fees as Giant King Grass is continually harvested at our project sites and used in actual applications (EG: Tibbar Energy/St. Croix) as well as from the sale of electricity in projects that we expect to have an equity interest in the power plant (EG: Agricorp/Nicaragua). Our business model is structured to create significant and recurring green energy revenues as a global company and generate profits for our shareholders.”

Since its gradual development, from initial concepts in the 1950s to experimental machines in the 1970s and 1980s, MRI based imaging in its various iterations has grown to become a multi-billion global industry, with a market that continues to increase as an aging population feeds the need for heart, cancer, and neurological related diagnostics.
Hospitals all over the world demand the machines, given their ability to reveal the internal structures of the body in significant detail, but it’s a technology that comes at a price. Even small scale systems can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, with large scale high-power systems going for millions. Add to this the associated facility and operational costs and it’s easy to see why hospital budgets are being pushed through the roof, and why healthcare reforms are putting increased pressure on the purchase and use of MRI technology.
All of this spells a tremendous opportunity for VentriPoint Diagnostics, a Seattle-based imaging technology company capitalizing on an invention already grabbing part of the massive MRI market. Their proprietary system gives inexpensive ultrasound imaging the power to replace capabilities previously limited to MRI. The company’s Angelo’s (VMS™) 2D ultrasound imaging system uses anatomical “dots” to build a 3D model of the heart, calculating the functional information of heart volumes, cardiac output, and ejection fraction that is required by a cardiologist to determine heart function status.
Unlike an MRI, all of this critical information is acquired in 10 minutes using conventional 2D ultrasound, analyzed via a patented system known as knowledge-based reconstruction (KBR). The net result is the elimination of all the disadvantages of an MRI scan: a long wait list, the one-hour scan time, the claustrophobic environment, the requirement of a general anesthetic for children, a lengthy heart analysis process, and the need for a second trip to the hospital. Most of all, it means less use of MRI equipment and supporting processes, with all of the cost savings that represents.
