+ - AAA battery plus new electrocatalyst (cheap & durable)

Submitted by justcauseisjustthat
justcauseisjustthat (1150803) writes "As published in Nature last month Stanford researches have developed a new electrocatalyst that using just a AAA battery can convert water to hydrogen. With this cheap, abundant and durable solution could this pave the way to a hydrogen based transportation and power system. Could current cars be retrofitted to convert water to hydrogen inline , fill your gas tank with water, filter out impurities and use the electrocatalyst to make hydrogen in real time (no storage of hydrogen)."

I can understand the cynicism , but allow the early adopters to pay the extremely high prices so that better and better, less expensive versions and techniques can be made.

The amazing thing about nature, it will always find a way to kill you! Sooner or later she's going to get you. Appreciate the beauty :-)

When you believe I need to get a grant and I need to publish this or that to make a major breakthrough you are just being a lemming.
Now take the teenager who had the desire to create a Pancreatic Cancer Test and didn't have all those rule drubbed into him, he just did it.
Those formally trained in research do splendid formal research, those with desire and no rules make amazing breakthrough.... Maybe :-)

If the president had to go through congress to do everything, nothing would get done. I think the Obama administration is still trying to get appointments through congress from 2 years ago.

On the other hand the expiration idea has merit.

If the criminals (hackers) had physically (instead of virtually) broken into Sony, physically stolen customer information would Sony be responsible in that case also? At what point is it just a crime against both Sony and it's customers?

I can see people writing that the security should have been better, well the same can be true in a physical crime also. Just seems odd to me, and how do we define when a company/person is liable in this kind of situation where they are also the victim?
