Michael Bond, Founder of Rumbler has worked with British war veterans and their families to launch a new awareness campaign. "Remember Tommy" aims to raise awareness about the issues facing military veterans and their families throughout the country, and fill gaps in service and support to veterans.
After a conversation at the end of October 2018 with a local war veteran and discovering the tragic rate of suicide amongst young ex-service people, Michael was prompted to act and assemble the people for the campaign. With the support of Manchester-based Galleon Studios Michael and a group of volunteer veterans and veterans' families have produced a new promotional film to raise public awareness.
The long term ideal of the campaign focuses on complementing existing services and helping fill gaps in service and support to veterans and their families. In conversations during this process Michael discovered that one vital need was for a signposting service to network and link all other groups and make it as easy as possible for those in need to reach the support available for them. Michael hopes that he will be able to give more support to veterans and help create new services on the back of the launch and success of the Rumbler.
Opportunity for programming tech-developers to come and work with Rumbler.
Are you a Manchester/North West England-based technology developer/team? Are you looking for a new opportunity to grow and share in the rewards of Rumbler’s vision of a new supercar?
Are you willing to take up the challenge of helping bring new investment and prosperity into the region?
You’ve read all about the plans for a revolutionary new supercar with an advanced environmentally-friendly engine?
Would you like to join the founder Michael Bond in building the next step in this ambitious programme?
Rumbler are going to create the Team: supporters, fans, enthusiast who want to share in the adventure of creating the most dramatic supercar in the world. A team of investors and supporters from around the world.
This is your opportunity to be part of that process and build that core technology for the public to come from around the world and share in this adventure with us.
Rather than seek investment from the venture capital community, then pay for a programming team to undertake the development, we will cut out the intermediaries and invite you to invest your time and skill in helping take this project to the next step.
YOU, not the investors, will receive the rewards. You can share in this journey with us.
The plan is to create a new, high security dedicated online crowd funding portal for this unique project. This is not a white label of the standard crowd funding systems, it is a dedicated online service and portal into our world of adventure. This portal will fill a gap in the market left open when the likes of Kickstarter and Indiegogo moved upmarket and were deluged by well-funded mini-ventures, mostly from California and China, swamping them and drowning out real innovators.
The commercial crowd funding services, such as Seedrs and Crowd Cube, are equally inadequate to the unique visionary task of our demands.
Now we will build a new portal for investors to come directly to Rumbler and the supercar to save the world.
The portal will allow the public to subscribe to the project, become micro-investors, manage their investments, share in our unique private channel of news, films, updates and opportunities, participate in an online community, offer ideas and suggestions and much more.
If you feel you have the skills and time to set aside in the next few months and you’re interested in discussing this with Michael then drop a line and we’ll arrange a suitable opportunity to meet up.
NOTE that strict commercial rules and professional standards of confidentiality, security and technical stability will apply. We are creating a secure portal for the public around the world to come and join us. Ideally you will already have some experience in this field. We cannot afford to show any disrespect for their participation in this vision of a new supercar and their ongoing participation in this effort as our supporters and partners
For you the rewards will be as generous as for all our seed investors.

It's Christmas Day and today I have a small Christmas present for the planet - a potential 20% reduction in urban air pollution for delivery within eight years at no cost to tax-payers.
A New Engine, A Solution Now
For the last few years I've been working on the design for the Rumbler Sport Tank. Partly for the challenge of creating something beautiful, partly to solve the issues of urban traffic air pollution.
At the heart of this is a new concept in efficient engine design. While some parties are more concerned about the adoption of electric power I see this as too far way to solve the problems of air pollution today. The engine is my answer, and today I calculated what it would cost and how quickly it might take to implement in the UK.
The £42 milliard solution
I believe from my own estimates that the engine will deliver an efficiency of up to 20%, reducing fuel consumption and air pollution by that amount. The logistical challenge is how to get the engine into enough vehicles and produce a tangible change in the world today.
This was the solution I completed this morning on my daily stroll around the park.
Swap out all the engines.
Don't spend so much time trying to re-invent the vehicles with fashionable new technologies, artificial intelligence, magical batteries and much more, just swap out all the engines.
Let's say there are twenty-one million vehicles on the roads in the UK. Each engine and the cost of installation might be upto £2,000. That is a total cost of forty-two thousand million pounds. This can be afforded using financial offset programmes through Rumbler and Sterling-Bond (my financial management company).
To build and replace twenty-one million vehicles of all types would be a huge exercise, but to swap out all the engines would be far quicker and easier to accomplish. I suspect it could be done within a handful of years, far quicker than trying to replace every vehicle in the UK.
If successful the programme can be rolled out across the planet relatively quickly.
A Logistical Programme
This is no vain exercise, the programme of delivery would be carefully managed to give the maximum benefit in the shortest time. Do this by delivering the engines to the most popular and air polluting vehicles first.
The most popular small vehicles in the UK: Ford Fiestas, the Mini.
Roll out to commercial vehicles, lorries and wagons.
Delivery vans for the scores of online mail-order companies nowadays, choking our cities with their white vans.
Deliver to co-operative manufactures at the same time, rolling out new cars as old ones receive their swaps.
There is nothing exciting about this. It is a simple exercise in manufacturing and logistics to roll the engines out as quickly as possible. The funding for this is readily available once the core technology is mastered and the factories are tooled up.
This is why I continue to promote the first step - the Rumbler Sport Tank.
My project is intended to kick-start this process and deliver the technology to the world. If you have any interest in sharing the adventure I invite you to spread the world and come and join me. While the politicians and the diplomats scratch their heads over the Paris Accord thingy we'll get on and solve the world's problems.
For comparison, the investment benefit of this programme (£42 milliards) is far less than the proposed cost of the HS2 railway plan (estimated at £56 to £76 milliards, and growing daily) while offering a cleaner environment more quickly to meet new government targets under the Paris Accord. The potential benefits of exports post-BREXIT are far inexcess of the HS2 programme investment, which appears to offer no direct export income.
Cost of this programme to the Treasury is minimal while HS2 will cost huge sums of money to borrow and repay, plus interest.

A Unique Workshop: The Batmobile for Real.
Innovation in Design to Revolutionize the Auto Industry. How a new supercar can solve climate-change.
Michael Bond, designer of the Rumbler Sport Tank, the Batmobile for real, held a presentation to members of the automotive sector to explain the economic and environmental benefits of the Sport Tank's new engine design.
Michael spoke about the origins of the concept for the Sport Tank, the Batmobile for Real, and how he sees it pushing the advancement of technology and increasing investment in the British high technology automotive sector. Beyond this he explained the broader opportunity to stimulate growing investment in new technologies and innovative designs to deal with the problems of climate change throughout the world automotive industry.
The culmination of Michael's solution is the proposition that upto £42,000,000,000 can be invested in UK manufacturing and delivery of the new engine to have a tangible effect on carbon emissions within 6-10 years, depending on the level of support and assistance from the government and rest of the industry.
Welcome to the new Rumbler web site. After contributions and friendly comments from many supporters the old web site has been completely redesigned to bring it up-to-date with the latest technologies. In the process a few changes have been made to simplify and streamline everyone's experience.
If you've visited Rumbler in the past you'll remember the additional "Products", the Lamb Drover, the Ultra-Smart Watch and the CommMaster World Smartphone concepts. These were design exercises and suggestions for future projects from founder Michael Bond. They may return in the future as the site settles down but for now let's all focus on getting the Rumbler on the road. In the next few weeks Rumbler will focus on world-wide announcements to bring this unique project to everyone's attention and raise all the support needed to take this stunning supercar into production.
Come and join Team Rumbler, and share in the adventure.
