Does doesn't it, and it's nice to see for once this sort of thing not being presented as a brand new idea - there are very few genuine 'clean sheet' designs in this world. On a practical note, I would imagine there will be a few edge sealing 'challenges' and possibly low thermal efficiency due to unfavourable ratio of volume to surface area - both problems which dog the Wankel engine. Didn't quite get the bit about an external combustion chamber - like Brayton's continuous combustion ready motor perhaps?

I believe it was Bristol which used a wobble plate design in a multi-cylinder diesel engine. Can't remember dates, but I saw it in a Judge ca. 1945. I think it was used in Bristol buses.

Reminds me of a version of a Swash plate hydraulic pump without the pistons.
