        - Stanford University researchers have discovered a way to increase battery life tenfold by using silicon nanowires.  The increased battery capacity is apparently made possible though a new type of anode that utilizes silicon nanowires instead of graphite. (c/net News; Jan. 15) (Slashdot)
      • Fuel Efficiency > Engines > 100 MPG Car Demo in Q3 2008 - Transonic Combustion is developing an advanced fuel injection system that operates conventional gasoline engines at ultra-high compression ratios and incorporates very precise ignition timing to dramatically increase fuel efficiency. A 100 mpg demonstrator sports car is targeted to be on the road by the third quarter of 2008. (Green Car Congress; Jan. 17, 2008) (Thanks John Q. Public)

        - Dr. Yoshiro Nakamatsu claims his house is powered by "cosmic energy", whose source is charged particles (such as the nuclei of atoms) arriving from outer space in rays at roughly the speed of light. A black "antenna" that covers most of one exterior wall collects this prolific energy and the excess is sold to Tokyo Electric Power. (The Japan Times; Jan. 9, 2008) (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Fuel Efficiency > Carbuinyector - Alleging to surpass the carburetor and fuel-injector, the Carbuinyector has electromechanical micro-controllers that dose, pulverize and mix air and gasolines of all type in a new and efficient way, with precise metering.
