Yes, please, because the main thing holding solar back right now is its very low efficiency, making the cost of materials to generate an equivalent amount of Kwh too high for most people. I'd love to see every science club in the U.S. focusing on improving efficiency of renewable energy and someone making a MAJOR breakthrough. Then we could let the oil & coal companies all crash.

Kurzweil's a World Class Genius, on the order of an Edison or Tesla.

Great, how long before we see this for real? 14 years from now? Great work with promise.
