WELCOME TO STUARTOLDS.COM
Writer & Inventor Based In North Somerset, UK
 
 
WELCOME TO my website, an accumulation of ideas and possible solutions to some of our global problems.

The origins of my innovating go back to 1982. My father had a poultry farm and I helped him overcome problems with feed lines, etc. This sowed the seed of invention in my mind and you can see some of my ideas from over the years in the innovations section of the website.

There are some ideas which have made it to the market place, and some being developed by billionaires. This I see as a positive thing, as my ideas are proven and being developed today. I never had the funds at 14 years of age, but I had the imagination.
My writing started not long after the events of 9/11. I penned a short poem/song called Our Time 4 Hope, and after quite a seismic event in my life, I started to write Hopes Truth. This is a trilogy which I can visualise being made into a film. You can read more about the writing in the fiction section.

Much of my work is based around our own survival and the survival of our planet and eco-system. I believe very much that nature is the whole and the power house of the universe. We are part of that universe, after all we are made of the same substances. So why not keep things simple and argument free?

THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN HOPE'S TRUTH & INTERSTELLAR
Hope's Truth by Stuart Olds
The storylines of Hope's Truth and the award-winning film Interstellar both center around mankind's search for a new home for Humanity.

Stuart Olds commenced writing Hope's Truth in 2003. The book was published in March 2011 by Tricorn Books.

Interstellar is based around a script first written by Jonathan Nolan in 2007. The film was released by Paramount Pictures (North America) and Warner Bros. Pictures (international) in November 2014.

HOPE'S TRUTH FAN TRAILER
Hope's Truth fan Callum Barnes created this video off his own back. It is a mock trailer for a Hope's Truth live-action film.

We think Callum's done a superb job in capturing the essence of Hope's Truth. Callum is a promising film maker for the future.

ABOUT STUART OLDS
Click to read more about Stuart Olds I AM Stuart William Olds, born in January 1970 in Keynsham, Bristol, England. I am the author of the science fiction novel Hope's Truth, and I am an inventor/innovator.

I am, above all, a Carpenter. This is a trade which has stuck with the human species ever since we fell from the trees. We are still very reliant on using timber for our survival. I feel privileged to be able to make a living with this renewable product.

The moon landings would never have happened unless there was a person behind a mallet and chisel. Today, as we understand more about our environment and the need for renewable material, Carpentry will rise again as such a necessary skill and profession. To call it a trade undermines its importance.

I was brought up on a poultry farm on the edge of Keynsham, which is situated mid-way between Bristol and Bath, in the United Kingdom.   READ MORE ⇒

FEATURED INNOVATION: OLDSLINE / VAC-TRACK
I THOUGHT up this idea in 1984. I went on a roller-coaster ride which had been really hyped up by the press but it did not live up to the hype in my opinion.

Click to read more I thought how a much better ride would be to have a capsule racing through a tube with video screen images shown to the passengers.

From there my idea progressed to having the capsule float on a cushion of repelling magnets. The cost of this would have been too much for the pleasure ride option but I thought it would make a great transport system.

I used the idea of a train running on repelling magnets inside a tube. The tube would have the air sucked out so there would be no wind resistance.

The hand drawn sketches show my other ideas to power the system. Some of these are being used today, such as wind turbines at sea. I sent this idea to the British Government in 1991 and I had replies from Mrs Thatcher and Michael Heseltine.
