The Pico-Lifter is a very small Lifter structure ( 10 mm wide ). This is, today, the worldwide smalest Lifter. The purpose is to test the eletrokinetic effect on a very small cell and at low voltage for building a High Density cellular structure ( Lifter-Cell ) for the Lifter-Craft engine.

TESTS RESULTS :
The Pico-Lifter works very well at about 4KV DC as shown in the photos below :

Comments : The test of the Pico-Lifter test shows that it seems possible to use a honeycomb structure for building a high density Lifter-Cell.
Above, an animated video of the experiment.
