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!
