Electronic Supercharger?????

So, I was looking through the internet for a supercharger for my Tacoma and i ran into this ad regarding an electronic supercharger. I'm pretty sure it does not work at all, but I'm curious if anybody or you know anybody who tried it. I tried looking through the forums about a electronic supercharger and found nothing. This product reminds me of that ridiculous Tornado infomercial thingy I saw like 6 years back.

Below is the link, well a web address you can cut and paste to your address bar. sorry. My html skills are down right crappy.

The little fan in the filter reminds me of the ones you hook up to your hitch.

I was thinking about this. So, at idle the motor is at full boost, the same as at full throttle. Mmmmm must work good. Idle must be where they measure their 2-6 pounds of boost. At full throttle there will be vacuum which would be spinning the impeller, turning the motor into a generator. A very green racy part, Al Gore will like it.

So it's a computer controlled electronic supercharger, I wonder if NASA would be interested. S/c the Mars rover.
