Driverless Car Town opens it's doors in Michigan

You've heard about Google Car, here's a controlled University studied test track for the driver less car.

I recently read an economic analysis on the automated car  -  its impact is huge.  Lots of challenges to be sure, but a tremendous reduction in manufacturing and a net improvement in utilization.

This analysis is really fascinating...

And the idea of an energy brokerage... Here's an energy hotel being developed at Aachen. Storing - or "hoteling" - power in a standardized way to be bought and sold...  This idea has been around for a long time, the exciting thing is... it's now happening.  The economics are now favorable...  Maybe the ABET folks will finally revisit the old Electo-Chemical Engineering degree debate!

The confluence of these technologies are making some pretty exciting changes in our world!
