It's an interesting idea, but I wonder how they plan on getting the energy-density they need for practical purposes. It might work, but there are still a lot of engineering-challenges t overcome before I start celebrating.

An interesting concept I hope they can make it work but lots more research needs to be done before it becomes a reality.
