    Unfortunately doesn't mention what else it takes to become reality.

    Hey, they are getting there. Big blue (IBM) is also in on this one, so give it a couple of years.

    As the article states: “This is a big deal”, particularly when established heavyweights such as GE, IBM and Toyota are also researching similar technology.

    I did have an “NiMH moment after reading about GM potentially investing in a company like PolyPlus.

    Had something come across my Facebook page that's making wild claims. Maxergy by 27th Century Technologies, Inc. Perpetual self charging batteries. Hopefully Tesla has R&D people who hunt these claims down and see if any potential is there for future battery replacements.
