Re: [hreg] "Bloom-Box" on 60 Minutes
Thanks for sharing this topic here. Bloom box seems to be a very interesting invention. It is already in operation at various locations such as Google Data center, Ebay etc. The founder KR is very optimistic of making it available to every home in 5-10yrs at $3K per unit. I personally look forward to that day when it can be reliable and affordable.
KR mentioned in his interview that he originally developed the technology to produce oxygen in Mars while he was working for NASA on the Mars mission. The technology was successful but the mission was scraped. His new invention, the bloom box is a modification of that technology.
Bloom energy is officially getting launched on Wednesday http://www.bloomenergy.com/ . This will be something to closely watch.
