I concur, this looks like a scam.
Since I don't know if the original poster is innocent or part of it, I'll
develop a little.
A patch which would create amino acids, water and oxygen ? From what ?

marks in biology ever since I was a kid. I've never herd of this so-called
A simple google search turns up a significant amount of references to
Resonant Energy Transfer.
What is Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)?
This technique is also know as fluorescence resonance energy transfer. FRET
is a Quantum mechanical process in which the radiationless transfer of
excitation energy occurs between a donor blue fluorescent protein (BFP) fluorophore
and an acceptor green fluorescent protein (GFP) fluorophore. Efficiency of
this energy transfer varies inversely with the sixth power of the distance
between the fluorophore-tagged proteins. Resonance energy transfer can occur
only at 3ž4 ~100 Å, and the efficiency of energy transfer is very sensitive to
the distance separating BFP- and GFP-fusion proteins.
