October 9th - unveiling event for's newest product will be unveiling a new product on October 9th. Catvolution will be there to cover the event.

What is the product? I can't say before the public event on the 9th...but it is pretty neat and amazing at the same time.

Also, updated their website, a vast improvement to their old site.

If you have any questions that you want to ask MDI, let me know and I'll do my best to get it answered.

Update on air cars and's visit to their factory and I have a great problem, instead of one type of product
vehicle, they have 3 seperate winning vehicles.

I signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement and can't comment further on it, but it was absolutely amazing... a real life-changing trip.

My original plan was to verify the validity of and then
independantly create a new business website promoting all vehicles
that can travel with zero pollution/emissions (not including the
pollution to charge the vehicles). There's Tesla, Zenn, Zap, and
many others that I would help promote.

Problem is that MDI was so great, I want to focus 100% on them.

Oh well, I am taking the whole summer off to see what I can do for
them and start to recoup all the $$$ I spent in the last 6 months
(please don't ask... it was a LOT, but money very well

ttyl... 8-)

Post-trip review -'s factory and meeting with Guy & Cyril Negre

Well the trip was definitely a life-changer.'s products are going to come out on schedule and there is a lot that I can't discuss because of the NDA.

So I have to wait until they talk about certain things before I can.

In short, these guys are 100% focused on the vehicles and business plan... not so much on the Internet/web site front though. They should be showing a "new" website soon, and I'll have my comments on it when it appears.

take care and be seeing you again.

Videos of Cyril Negre of MDI +'s ride in the air car!

Wow... got some great videos of Cyril Negre discussing the Minicat and the 1st generation Citycat and the "Lab Car", a 2002 prototype Citycat, (1st generation), that the MDI engineers have been using for the last 6 years to perform practical tests on new engines and components.

New content coming... please be patient

I really have to cover my butt with the NDA and make sure they videos don't contain anything taboo (they don't).

I'm also making sure that the accompanying content doesn't cause more problems for MDI. People make way too many assumptions (myself included) and I want each video to have the full context so that it's harder for people with MDI grudges to attack/dismiss/mislead.

The videos I made at the auto show were also taken and spread around the internet on various sites (which I liked), one cases where they spoof my youtube channel, made themselves catvolution and have ads running making $ off of it (was a little unhappy with that). I need to embed text/audio in the videos as well (but I'm not a pro at it and I don't have a Mac).

Anyway, enough B.S. and excuses... I don't want to half-ass the pics/videos, so just wait. I don't like it anymore than you do.

P.S. It's the real deal.

Non-Disclosure Agreement? Arghhhhhhhh!!!!

Sigh... well I was expecting this, so I wasn't surprised when I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement regarding certain things I would see and hear during the presentation and tour of the factory.

Please be patient with me regarding posting of information/photos/videos because there are certain topics that are ok for me to post, gray areas that should be cleared so I cover my butt and don't breach the NDA. Then there are and topics that are completely prohibited, i.e. I get sued (and rightfully so).

I learned a lot during the presentation and tour, and tried to gather any current information that would help clear up a lot of the confusion/misinformation/blatant lies that currently exist on some Internet sites. I'll try to post some of those pictures/videos tonight if possible... but just like the New York Auto Show, there was a lot of new information to process that doesn't exist on the Internet (some that I can't post either).

If I don't post tonight, it's because I have an hour with Guy Negre tomorrow to ask questions (hopefully interview on camera) before he has to deal with his other commitments (this is pretty sweet and should help clear up a lot of bad info). It's pretty rare to get that time with him so I don't want to waste it or screw it up.

I should also get video of the 1st Generation Citycat air car prototype running and clear up some of the bad information about that prototype.

Thanks and I'll be posting ASAP.

Trip to visit the MDI factory in Nice, France - June 6-13th

Yup, I really want to drive this thing and get more video/pictures on the internet.

Stay tuned for more information as the week goes on. I'm not a professional blogger/photographer, but I do relatively ok if you've seen the interviews on the Catvolution youtube channel.

Flight's tomorrow, so wish me luck! 8-)
