Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Though it's not got much support as yet (I am a backer).
Assuming that our DC sources of electricity are already somewhat efficient, why don't we just have other things that use that current be DC as well?
It would seem that inverters loose some "energy" in the conversion process, which is why we need this Google like X Prize to develop something more efficient...so taking them out of the equation seems like it would be a good idea.
Is it just that we're so used to designing electronics etc. to use AC, or are there other benefits? and, if so, then why not put effort into designing AC sources of electricity?
Oh well...it was nice to see some code that did actually match what the characters were babbling about...even if there were other things that they did that didn't make any sense what-so-ever to someone who actually understood what they were seeing on the computer screen.
