Cell power


Bloom Energy are makeing power cells based on sand :)

This video is just a short preview on the new revolutionary technology.
They say soon they will be able to sell it for everyday consumers not just the big companies. 
This kind of technology is curently being used in spaceships mostly and satalites, witch leads me to belive that there is probably something better out there if someon decided to sell this now :D

  27. yup, they're selling us the leftovers. i think the main reason for this is the price. almost all the new technological equipment is very expensive. the only way to lower the cost is to mass produce.
