ICE dead, not so fast

The ancient opposed piston layout may come back and fight on.
The lighter, lesser friction surfaces and simpler design do not need the typical four-stroke engine valvetrain, intake and exhaust ports, and complexity of synchronized camshafts and valves.
Electronic control now allows the optimum metering of air and fuel precisely and could take advantage of the design's inherent simplicity and efficiencies.
