I agree, Rob. With electronic gear using less and less power, solutions like this could become important.

Sounds like this is going to help solve the energy problem for the solider on the go. Since soldiers are carrying increasing amounts of communication electronics, the batteries have become a burden. This could be the solution.

It's good to see continued research in this field.  The gov't-private partnership will expedite mass market applications. 

I'm curious to know if it's being developed just for the Marines or are they the beta testers for the other branches?
