Ok I may have missed some things... But yes I am complaining about $22,000 dollars. I could get something like a 20k watt solar setup for $22,000.
So excuse me if i'm not wowed by a $22,000 750 watt unit.
It sounds good. But price means everything. How long would it take me to run out of $22,000 for paying electricity?
And honestly. Who would pay that much for a TV? Not me? I'm not filthy Rich. As MOST people aren't.
I actually did some calculation the other day. Worked out that one of those new 5 inch 1920 * 1080 screens for a Smart phone cost about $50. You put 100 screens together and you have yourself a 50 inch screen 19200 * 10800 resolution TV screen for $5000. Add in some plastic and computer chips to run it, you know, the normal stuff in todays TV's. And you have maybe another MAX $2000. So a $7000 50 inch TV screen at 19200 x 10800 resolution. Blows a stupid 4k telly out of the water. Want the TV bigger... The higher the resolution will be and of course the cost. But should be able to play anything at any resolution for the next 10 years.

However, I am not in any way, shape or form, interested in using biogas (or anything else for that matter) that is made from poop---to cook! Ewwwwwwwww! I would not be able to eat...

If you can't turn it into a tasty hamburger, why not run your car off it?
Long road trips can be a pain, literally, since bathrooms are usually very hard to find in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately (or unfortunately), a Chinese company has developed

Ahhh yes I remember, though I wasn't aware there were actual papers on how to do it... Are these papers based on theory rather that actual tests?
There is the other tech that was supposed to change everything too, it was mimicking photosynthesis, it sounded really cool but not sure there is any kind of working model yet...
Then there is the japanese lot that have created thermoelectric generating pipes, which I believe will be awesome in a fuel cell... So instead of converting the waste heat into hot water and heating you could turn it into more electricity, you could even switch between them... Like when no heating or hot water is required it produces electricity but if you need heat it diverts the amount it needs.
