Inventor Demonstrates Infinitely Variable Transmission

ElectricSteve writes with this excerpt from Gizmag:
“Ready for a bit of a mental mechanical challenge? Try your hand at understanding how the D-Drive works. Steve Durnin’s ingenious new gearbox design is infinitely variable — that is, with your motor running at a constant speed, the D-Drive transmission can smoothly transition from top gear all the way through neutral and into reverse. It doesn’t need a clutch, it doesn’t use any friction drive components, and the power is always transmitted through strong, reliable gear teeth. In fact, it’s a potential revolution in transmission technology.”
