Ok, so they are a bit tooo sparse with technical details for my taste. They only talk about deuterium and not D+T. So would it be correct to assume that they are going to burn D2 only? If so, that would probably reduce some of the problems with DT reactors. They would still produce a lot of neutrons that will have some implications on the burn chamber and potentially also the rest of the reactor.
Lots of other open questions. Still, it does look interesting and I wish them the best of luck.

I think their claim is that the spiral shape somehow adds a sort of rotation, or twist to the plasmoid...

I guess I just do not get it, the design seem to add unusual complexity and goes against what I would think be best practices for working with plasma.

Sorlox has a 6 min 17 s video on their homepage showing a simulation of their device, but without a description of how it works.

The spiral design is to get a compact size of the device. The same video has been uploaded on Youtube on the 20th of August:

Really Kite? Because if you scroll up like 4 posts you'll see that both Skip and Paper both state they don't feel it is right. I'm with them on this and if you agree on that part, great.
