I do think it only because English isn't Hans first language and that stops most Western people's discovery of his work. It is really interesting research though.

The quartz crystals experiments are intriguing. These can be found in many household objects, perhaps surprisingly in any small device that makes sound....greetings cards, wrist watches, toy games etc. Those flat round speakers make their sound through the effects of the quartz crystal sandwiched between the layers.
On the other end of devices, electronic cigarette lighters use the same stuff ! The type that clicks to make a spark. I believe they work by compression of the plunger, the plunger flips with enough pressure and strikes the quartz forcibly, which creates a high voltage, that jumps a small electrode gap, that lights the gas.
