Replacing the Combustion Chamber?

Popular Science: Shockwave-Generating Wave Discs Could Replace Internal Combustion Engines

Michigan researchers have built a prototype of a new auto motor that does away with pistons, crankshafts and valves, replacing the old internal combustion engine with a disc-shaped shock wave generator. It could slash the weight of hybrid cars and reduce auto emissions by 90 percent.

I’m not against replacing the combustion chamber, but you better damn well have an equally kick-ass name for this new component.
Shockwave-generating-disc ain’t gonna cut it.
