Your discussion of hydrogen was interesting. I have long felt that this is where we will need to get eventually. However, you completely ignore the primary problem that needs to be overcome for the use of hydrogen as a fuel. You talk about how hydrogen was made by various companies and therefore we could make it on the large scales we would need it for fuel. You are not looking at the complete problem.
As you said, there are 2 sources of hydrogen. Far and away, the biggest source is from natural gas. This does not get us away from our dependence on hydrocarbon fuels, it just shifts where the combustion takes place. The other source you mentioned was using electricity to convert water to hydrogen. You don't answer the question of what fuel do we use to get the electricity. That is the key to this whole problem, how do you generate large amounts of electricity without oil or gas? Some day I hope to see solar but that is still a breakthrough or two away. Wind can help but there are hurdles before it can bethe large scale source that we need. Coal can be done cleanly and is probably the quickest path to the electricity we need but environmentalists don't like it.
This is the key point in the debate. How do we get enough electricity that does not require oil or gas? If we have that, the rest is easy. If we don't the rest is impossible.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
