New Form Technology is a research organization with the goal of developing applications for the work of Frank Chester, a visionary geometer, sculptor, inventor, and discoverer of the first seven-sided volume with faces of equal area, known as the Chestahedron. For years Frank has been working alone from his small apartment in San Francisco, but the time has come to take the work forward. New Form Technology is seeking to implement a three-phased strategic plan:

Phase 1: (Complete!)

  • Acquire research laboratory
  • Initial seed grant to begin operations
  • Allow donors to give tax-free contributions

Phase 2:

  • Funding for materials and equipment
  • Vortexial mixing experiments

Phase 3:

  • Open facility to community involvement
  • Develop marketable applications
  • Identify new and promising avenues of research

New Form Technology has recently completed phase one of the strategic plan with the official opening of the NFT Research Center in San Carlos, CA, due to a generous donation of a suitable building from ADCO Outdoor Advertising. This facility includes a wood/metal shop and work space of approximately 2000 square feet. Additionally, an initial seed-grant of $5000 has been granted to NFT by the Raphael Medical Foundation, a research organization located in California, which is enough to get the research ball rolling.

NFT is currently converting the facility into a working research lab environment. Once this is done, initial research will concentrate on the CVO (Chesta Vortex Organizer), a mixing device geared towards water enhancement for agricultural, biodynamic, household, and medical use. (See video below.)

NFT is now actively seeking funding and support for phase two of the strategic plan. 

This involves the planning, fabrication, and testing of alternate designs. The funding goal for stage two is $25,000. This goal includes allocation for the following:

  • testing/measuring instruments
  • municipal utilities
  • metal and wood supplies/fabrication
  • staff requirements
  • insurance
  • computers
  • miscellaneous motors
  • small water tanks
  • clear plastic tubes and spheres

Phase three has a funding goal of $60,000, which will allow NFT to gear itself towards full scale production, testing, marketing, outreach, and coordination with other organizations and universities. Ultimately NFT wishes to make the laboratory available to the wider community for collaborative research efforts that are oriented towards bridging scientific, artistic, and spiritual modes of working.
