Comment SkySails (Score 1) 164

The SkySails propulsion system consists of a large foil kite, an electronic control system for the kite and an automatic system to retract the kite. The system bears similarities to kitesurfing.... A ship equipped with the current SkySails could consume from 10 to 35% less fuel.

I am a fan. I think the engineers at GM asked the right questions when they built this car. How far does the average driver commute? How can we create an electric car that is a full replacement for the average car? How can we make the batteries powerful yet last for years? How can we make the car look decent and still accomplish our goals? I am no greenie but I love to see technology solve our current and future problems. I also am happy to see solutions that reduce our dependence on the Middle East.
