A free movement, lift mechanism employing a spinning disc utilizing Bernoulli's Theorem and the derivative Coanda and Couette effects augmented by centrifugal force. Lift control is provided by variation in rotational velocity of the disc, by variation in the width of a Couette space and by variation in the amount of air entering the Couette space. Strategically placed vanes provide stabilizing control.
[ I claim:] [1.] An airlift mechanism consisting of a spinning disc oriented in an approximately horizontal plane, having a flat undersurface and a convex top surface upon which is inscribed a series of circular steps concentric about a vertical shaft, said disc being firmly attached at its center of rotation to said shaft which extends downward through a sealed bearing in a flat plate, the top surface of said plate being oriented parallel to the undersurface of said disc thereby forming a gap between; said shaft is rotated by a motor mounted below said ...
