Uses Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems


The KEAP Engine operates on Brownian Motion which is a force that only works at microscopic scales. Therefore a KEAP Engine is also of microscopic size. The small size of a KEAP Engine is one of it’s best features, as it allows an array of many Keep engines to be arranged into almost any form which creates endless design and implementation options. In some extreme examples the case or device itself could be contructed out of KEAP Engines.

Construction of machines at this size is called MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems). Most of the MEMS fabrication methods are adopted from standard integrated circuit technology. MEMS devices have been in use since the 1960s. This is the same technology that is used to make many common devices: accelerometers (in most cell phones and air bags), DLP chips (used in projectors and tele-visions), biomedical sensors, microphones, ink jet printers, and more. As the technology has advanced, the sizes have shrunk, complexity has increased, and prices have dropped. MEMS are used in many every-day devices today, including almost every cell phone.

Current manufacturing techniques will be used to construct KEAP Engines.
