Really small superchargers

So I'm back from chilly, snowbound and slushy Indianapolis!
I went with high hopes and returned with:

Sore feet
A lighter wallet
Better camera skills
Awesome industry contacts
And a whole lot of hope for the future.

As per 2009, I took along a prototype of a new product idea, It's a supercharger for under 250cc 4 stroke scooters and small motorcycles, specifically the Madass125. But because of the nature of the design, it should be easy to adapt to other vehicles also.

To give you a sense of scale, the impeller is 2" in diameter and the inlet to the compressor housing is a diminutive 1.1"
If time allows, I'll have a fully functional prototype in a month.
