    Oh yeah, this guy has been making the rounds. He thought of hybrid cars in the 80s and patented some important patent from his company PAICE. The reason PAICE is not a total patent troll is because he actually built and showed his stuff to some manufacturers. Even still, from what I understand and the terms of the settlement with Toyota, I believe Toyota and VAG developed their stuff independently. In my blog I posted about Audi hybrids in the 80s. Now the company he founded (he went to some other company) is expanding their horizons...
